Atmosphere was alright, but service was awful. We needed to ask for our cutlery when they provided us with our meal. After we got our cutlery the food was already cooled down. Portions were small. Would not go back here, many other places were much...More

Menu is good and includes many different choices. Filled baguettes and burgers were delicious! Waitress was really friendly. At the lunchtime the place was really full and the pigeons were annoying - but anyway i can recommend Cordinia and could absolutely eat there again!

Stopped for coffee or a beer here several times, often accompanied by a very reasonably priced pastry. The restaurant itself is a splendid building. Good service.

Even if it is for a quick espresso Cafe Cordina is the place to visit. Cafe Cordina symbolises the culture, history and elegance of our capital. There is a vast selection of snacks, sweets and pastries to choose from.

The cafeteria is very nice, quite crowded almost anytime. The atmosphere is classic even if it's rather noisy and agitated. The coffee, the ice-cream and the cakes are great.
