Visited the Vinum Wine Bar with my girlfriend for a bottle night out and a platter. Imdina is a very romantic city and would recommend this old capital to anyone visiting Malta. Vinum is the wine bar of the very well known Fontanella restaurant. Unfortunately the majestic views from Fontanella cannot be seen from the Vinum wine bar. On the... More

Following is our review on this “wine bar”. Called on a Saturday morning to reserve a table for 2 at Vinum Wine Bar. When the person answered my call I asked for the wine bar and to reserve a table for 2 on that same evening at 21.30. Ok no problem your table is reserved, I was told. When I... More

Friendly staff and a nicely selected wine list at reasonable prices for the area. Worth popping into!

This place serves the best platters ever. Five of us who are all big eaters ordered the Mediterranean and the Vinum special platter and failed to finish them. Great selection on both, they more than make up for the less than attentive service.

Really poor service from completely inattentive staff. Food OK but nothing special. Wine list limited for a wine bar.

I recommend the Vinum platter which may easily be shared among 3 people and which offers a great variety of cheese, cold cuts and other appetisers. I would however include a blue veined cheese which was missing. Otherwise, lovely place, lots of wines to choose from and of course the Fontanella desserts which are a perfect ending to a great...

Our local friends took us here, on top of King's Landing (of season 1). What a wonderful view. Food is very decent, I had Meager fish (a local fish), big portion. Our young waiters screwed up our dessert order otherwise it was a lovely experience,

Visited for a casual catch up with friends on a Saturday night. The outside was set up and open for the wine bar. (Usually it is set inside which is cosy and intimate). Great views of the island as we were sat on the edge of the top level. Service was attentive, great wine list and a good food menu... More
