This is a nice restaurant offering good food at reasonable prices. One issue though is portion size. I had rabbit ragout - I didn't though expect the majority of a rabbit. The food was fine but just too much of it. Certainly worth a visit.

Our early reservation yielded us a quiet, romantic table by the fireplace and wonderful, personal interaction with Paul, Joseph and the staff at Medina. Their dining recommendations were amazing and the service impeccable. It was a marvelous experience to top off a magical day in the beautiful walled city of Mdina.

We ate in this restaraunt as a large group of around 90 people. The staff were great and freindly and tried their best to accomodate us and the mix of families and children. i would definitely recomend as the food was good quality even for a large group and the environment was also nice.

This is where you should stop for a meal when you're in Mdina! Authentic Maltese cuisine in a truly authentic medieval Maltese atmosphere. This is a wonderful chance to experience the Mdina indoors: stone walls and courtyard design. Be adventurous and try a Maltese rabbit or lamb dish to go with the ambiance!

I only went in for a coffee, which was very nice all the restaurants were busy even at this time of the year. Worth a visit though.

This is a restaurant I would go back to for sure! The atmosphere is magical, set in an old and beautifully restored house in Mdina. Service is exceptional, food is divine. I was also given a sweet birthday surprise for dessert - I was so touched and really appreciated it. Attention to detail is impeccable and staff were clearly out... More
