In the end we only actually had pizza, because we were too full for cake. The pizza was fine, but nothing to write home about - took quite a while to arrive too. Views are absolutely incredible, worth a visit just for that.

If visiting Mdina it's a must to visit this place. Whether for lunch or dinner or for a coffee and a piece of cake. A vast menu and whether food or sweets I've never been disappointed. Yet last time I visited this restaurant, the staff wasn't that professional. I expected a better environment, like previous times. I felt that small... More

When we decide to spend a Sunday morning out we always give it a good start with a coffee, cheese cakes and a good pastry from Fontanella...kids had a strawberry milkshake and it was so big that I had to take the rest...

A breathtaking spot for a drink or a bite to eat. Couldn't comment on the meals but we stopped for coffee and cake here, both were nice, a little pricey but that view has a cost too I guess. Staff friendly and helpful, I would go again if I returned in the future.

Perched on the old bastions, sipping a coffee or tea with a large selection of cakes, having a beer with a pizza or snack, this is the place to visit while touring the old city of Mdina. Certainly worth a visit.

Only given 4 as we didn't eat here, just had coffee. However, the service was quick, professional and friendly. The views are amazing too.

After strolling around Mdina, you have to sit and enjoy the views and this restaurant/cafe is perfect. You can either go upstairs and enjoy the beautiful views or find a quiet corner downstairs and simply take everything in. As expected, it's a very busy place but we were lucky as the day we were here, it was easy to find... More
