Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Reservations
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.

“Paella for two”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I like this place, it's not fussy, it's not 'in your face' and the staff are friendly and helpful. [Even if some of them have only been working there for a day or two].

We were looking for a meal that wouldn't break the bank , something not too serious nor too formal. The next day we'd be heading to Gozo so and un-rushed dinner was in order of the day.
Two good sized paellas, chatting with staff and other diners and a couple of bottles of local wine made for a perfect end to the first leg of our stay in Malta..

Thank you Kantina I've dropped in over the years and whether it's just a quick drink or a long dinner you haven't disappointed.

“Great Place, friendly stuff, good food”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We run into Kantina Cafe twice already, both times had pleasant experience. My husband had delicious, juicy burger, I had salad. The prices are decent for Valletta, does not brake a budget at all. Food is really good, great selection of wine. Defiantly worth coming back. Loved the square where it is situated.

“Great for lunch”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We stopped in after a long visit to the St. John's Co-Cathedral - the location is perfect, our waitress was lovely, and it was so nice to sit under the trees and recover from all the gold. I wouldn't recommend the cocktails, they were watery, but I enjoyed a delicious ftira sandwich.

“Good value meal in a lovely setting”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

A good everyday cafe with a good range of evening meal specials. Friendly staff. Ate there twice and we're not disappointed on either visit. Good value for money.
