Description: This is a family run business and we do our best to give the home made food feeling. We mainly cook A La Carte therefore the menu changes twice daily, depending on what is fresh during the day. For those that are in more of a rush there are the snacks and burgers menu. Being exactly in the middle of Valletta one could shade themselves from the scorching sun under our lovely trees whilst having their well deserved break.

“Best athmosphere in town ...”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Where is the place for breakfast, lunch or just a glass in Valletta? My advice is:Il Kantina is the place.... there are others too ofcourse but this is my favorite. Under the green lead threes, a bit away from the crowd, but excellent for just watching city life passing by. Hours fly easy with a glass of wine or just a cup of coffee ...

“Good for coffee but not food”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We had lunch yesterday and there are very long waits for food. At least we spent an hour waiting until the pasta arrived, which i must say was good. Will return but definitely not to eat.

“Nice food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

You don't go to Malta for the food. But it's nice when you find a place that is making an effort - such as Kantin Cafe and Wine on Misrah San Gwan in the centre of Valletta. Home made soups, lots of different pasta, fish and other dishes to choose from. They have a few tables inside that suffer from the door to the WC being left open too frequently. But there are no complaints about the ample space outside. Staff genuinely nice.

“Good choice for lunch to avoid the tourist traps”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

A good place for lunch, serving good food at the right price in a nice location to watch the world by. In an area where some of the other places are traditional tourist traps, this is a much better option. Also, they have an efficient humidifier system that keeps flies away from the food.

“Tasty and well priced”
Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

We ate here our last night and rather wished we had found it earlier. Simple wholesome fare. We had asparagus stuffed tortellini with dress broccoli tomatoes and a sprinkle of garlic. Delicious. Pleasant service in a lovely setting just outside the church. Beautiful. Definitely one to visit again :)
