We had five of us (four adults and one 13 year old) so we decided to share a Maltese platter for two, an Italian platter for two and a Greek platter for one. It was a good way to try local and more exotic food. We dined in the basement and had a relaxing lunch trying out the different foods.

Stopped for tea and cake. Good service and very good chocolate cake! The cakes are apparently homemade. Wifi also available.

Stopped for a coffee. No staff on floor so went to counter. Incredibly rude woman simply snapped at us "just sit down, can't you see I'm serving other people, thank you". (as if thank you made the rudeness acceptable). There are better and more politer ways to say we're busy, won't be a moment. Better places locally with nice staff,... More

We went for lunch, attracted down narrow lanes by a chalk board advertising a Maltese platter for two. We arrived at a charming sunlit square with the red shuttered restaurant facing us. We sat outside drinking a glass or two of good house wine and then received the delicious platter. Lots of different bits and pieces, all tasty. Plenty for... More

I found this restaurant by accident down an alleyway when visiting the 'Mdina Experience'. I had an excellent salad with a very nice glass of Maltese dry white wine. A pleasant air conditioned restaurant which was really welcome on a hot day. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend a visit

Thank Davitul
