On a recent trip to Malta, visited the Mdina one morning and the tour was being sheherded into see a film show on the area. Now this was probably a very good film, but with the sun blazing down in the little square, we thought coffee and a cake a good idea, so we plumped for the Don mesquita. This is bigger than it looks wuith a good sized basement for dining etc, as long as you don't mind a circular stone staircase (my wife say's they move - even the stone ones
Excellent coffee and really good sized slice of apple pie. Nice people, good service and .reasonabel prices.
One tip in Malta - if you ask for a black coffee, you get Nescafe, ask for an Americano and they use real coffee

Our holiday in lovely Malta was between 4th and 14th June, and whilst there, staying in lovely Rabat, we visited to stunning city of Mdina many times. You could not beat the friendliness of Dorothy and Anne, who help to run this lovely, charming little restaurant/bar. We had lunch many times, which for us consisted of their Maltise and Italian platters, and not forgetting thieir lovely salmon dip. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel so welcome. We left Malta feeling that we has made some nice friends. The bar itself is very clean and rustic, and it is in a prefect spot in the middle of a lovely little square not far from the entrance of Mdina. You simply must go if you visit Rabat or Mdina.

On an island where a warm welcome is the rule, rather than an exception, Don Mesquita deserves a special mention. The food was as good as the welcome - to the extent that we made a second trip to Mdina from Valletta specifically to eat there a second time.

What makes this restaurant stand out is the way personal attention is given to everyone who goes there; even though a relatively small restaurant, the owners display a warm-heartedness that makes the food and wine taste even better - if that is possible. And the value is exceptional.

A definite for our next visit to Malta.

A beautiful sunny day in Mdina, we had lunch in this lovely little restaurant. It is located in an attractive square, off the busier main street. The Mdina Experience show is a few doors away.

We chose the traditional Maltese platter for two. Extremely good and copious quantities. To finish we had a cappuccino and some of his chocolate fudge cake. Also very tasty.

The waiter was friendly and gracious in his approach, adding to the overall pleasant experience.

the wine bar is situated in a quite part of medina. the food was delicious as we opted for a platter . it was reasonable priced. the waitresses were very friendly ao any one visiting mdina would suggest this place to anyone wanting to find a quite place. but the best part was a little puppy who is frequent theract we went there as this seems to be an animal friendly bar. hope to visit again shortly
