We visited the Medina restaurant in late April for dinner and were absolutely blown away - the atmosphere in Mdina itself is special, and this is continued in the Medina restaurant. We were welcomed by incredibly professional and friendly staff who treated us like VIPs throughout the entire experience. We were sat in the courtyard area which was really very... More

The Medina, situated in the heart of Mdina, the “silent city”, an ancient walled city in Malta, proved to be a perfect evening. The restaurant is located in an 11th century Norman Residence, with the old stable converted into a beautiful vaulted ceiling romantic restaurant, and the restaurant has a stunning vine covered courtyard for al fresco dining, where we...

Located in the old city of Mdina, this restaurant is one of my favourites in Malta. I have been here several times in the past 4 to 5 years and I may report that the food is constantly very good, the service excellent and the surrounding is what you may say: typical for the old city of Mdina. Medina has... More

Excellent food and ambiance including service. Once can either reserve a table in the courtyard or inside whereby it is more intimate.

After having read the good reviews, I was really looking forward to an excellent meal. Unforunately, the pork was dry and the recommended wine was not very tasteful. I suspect we were a too large group (40) for this restaurant. I'm sad to say I would not go again.

There's a certain formality about the setting and ambience of this restaurant which qualifies it as a 'nice restaurant' - the service is attentive and prompt without being intrusive. And yet, they didn't tip over to the dreaded obnoxious zone - they were very welcoming of our two year old who thankfully behaved like a charming little lady too.. she... More

Apart from the ancient city Medina being a must-see for any Malta visitors, the Medina restaurant was a wonderful experience. Within the old walls of the city lies this romantic restaurant within a patio, reminiscent of patios seen in Havana, where one is seated underneath trees. The staff was very friendly, service was excellent and the menu offering a wide... More

Great great ambience with a quaint location in the silent city of Malta. The food is based on a maltese cuisine with a touch of their own. Wide selection with fresh fish and steaks. Ideal for a dinner celebration..... Love it.

The first visit was a memory, I'll leave it to you. The next night we went somewhere else, not happy, I insisted on a late call into Medina and asked for a quiet table with a bottle of wine and two deserts. They loved that we came back unsatisfied with the other restaurant and needed a bit of 'Medina'. Just... More

We chose ravioli and a pate to start. Both good. Then sea bass and quail. Both excellent and nicely presented. Local Maltese wine was fine and not pricey. The service was first class.

Dine in truly romantic surroundings beneath the flowering Oleander tree in the vine-clustered courtyard during the summer, and by candle-light and an open log fireplace that keeps the restaurant warm during the winter months. The Medina presents a selected à la Carte menu based on Mediterranean and local cuisine, frequently changed to guarantee the pleasure of regular diners.
