“Excellent Restaurant”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Excellent service. Lovely setting. The Food was outstanding. The local wine on the menu delicious. Waiters were able to advise on choice of wine to accompany the food. The Lobster Ravioli was out of this world. Everything was cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend it. I would advise to book your table as they get extremely busy. We returned several times during our stay and were welcomed back by very attentive staff. Extremely good value. No more expensive than much poorer restaurants.

“Just lovely. Great atmosphere and yummy food”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We had a lovely table on the outside terrace and it set the mood perfectly. The service was non-intrusive but very helpful and the food was simple and tasty. A very relaxing evening.

“Stumbling upon Il Mithna”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We were looking for a restaurant to eat at in Mellieha and the scenery of Il Mithna caught our attention.

They had a few bookings but managed to fit us on a table of 2 outside which was fine with us.

The waiter(s) were friendly but we had a different waiter come to us every 10 minutes or so which seemed a little confusing but it was no problem.

We did enjoy a great treat complimentary treat from the chef which was some sort of creamed courgette tart with a shot of watermelon juice. It was very tasty and it worked well together.

The menu looked very attractive and appeared well constructed; it has a good variety of dishes which feature their fresh fishes as specials. Caroline ordered the salmon & shrimp fish cake which was simply delicious and well seasoned. I ordered the 'Wagyu' beef patties with sweet chilli sauce, this on the other hand was decent but I found it more pretentious than anything. It was a pattie on top of a slice of deceivingly "French Bread" with a pile of mixed leaves and a puddle of sweet chilli sauce which was obviously ready made from the bottle. The dish seemed rather confused and it didn't really make sense to me.

For mains, Caroline had Pork belly with mixed veg and a completely unnecessary side of boiled potatoes, why? because the Pork belly was sitting on an almost smooth pile mashed potato. The dish was decent and definitely filling.

I ordered the rabbit ballotine which was dry but edible. I believe both of our dishes were served with the same sauce which screamed laziness to me.
Disappointing
Overall, the food was a let down (with the exception of a the one starter) considering how well the menu sounded. Service was fine however, we left with mixed feelings.

We found this restaurant by chance, the last time we were in Malta, and had to visit it again this time. A lovely ambience with great food and very helpful staff.
