Food and drink

The cakes are the thing. The chocolate cake is the famous one but there is a long list and I like some of the others just as much. The rest of the food - light meals and sandwiches – is pretty ordinary.

Recommended dishes

Cakes!

Ambience

It's outdoor, but partially covered. The atmosphere downstairs is nothing special. Sit on the upper terrace on top of the fortifications of Mdina with a 180º panorama - fabulous. Note it can get windy.

 

Service

Staff are often rushed off their feet and service can be very slow. Relax and enjoy the view.

Location

It's just off Bastion Square at the high point of Mdina. Wander your way up past the sights and rest your legs here before heading back.

Price advice

It's 2.60 euros for a large slice of cake.
