We spent four days in Malta and had our evening meal in two of them in this wine bar and restaurant. It was opened relatively recently and was not found on any of the traditional search engines or tourist brochures that we might ordinarily turn to. The proprietor and his son who served us were both very friendly and accommodating. The Maltese wine was a pleasant surprise, as were the Maltese dishes we chose from a menu that gave us the option of several light dishes, somewhat like Spanish tapas, rather than a big main course. Every choice was delicious. Had not the owners of the bed and breakfast in Zejtun told us about it, never would have found this wine bar and restaurant. il-Kantina is in the middle of a block on a side street with a modest sign. Like much else in Malta, it is immersed in history in in a large room with a barrel ceiling below-street level in a building that was the home of one of the Knights of St John. Ask the proprietor to show you the rooms below that were carved out as bomb shelters during World War II.
