This is in the walls of old city, tucked in a nice garden this was a nice find. Great value for coffee. We did not eat but the food we saw looked very good. Service all very friendly and felt welcomed immediately. Would return if near again and nice shop next door!

A nice restaurant in the middle of Mdina. The service was good and all three of us enjoyed our meals. I had an open ftira and it was nearly the size of a pizza but much thicker with maltese bread. An excellent meal.

There is a limited choice on the menu, the portions are quite good. When we visited we sat outside in a small yard, the service there was pretty good. The lady who served us was quite pleasant. It was nothing outstanding, prices average. On the minus side the toilets were not particularly good.

We only needed something light, so opted for a Ftira and a coffee each. We didn't wait overlong for our orders, which were both tasty and filling. The courtyard is a lovely setting too.

Visited on Malta's independence day. Restaurant was fairly busy but found a spare table and sat down. Looked at the menu which looked appetizing and reasonably priced. The problem was that having been sitting there for half an hour we had not even been offered a drink. We were not the only ones - a couple at an adjacent table,... More

The Rosmarino offers a wide variety of light bistro type mediterranean food at highly reasonable prices. It boasts a wonderful courtyard back from the Villegaigon Street under a roof canopy. Staff are highly attentive and helpful. An excellent choice for a light lunch or a refreshing drink along the way!

liked: the vegetarian pizza was tiny but tasted good, kind waitress, garden, wc, decoration disliked: the weather was quite cold, inside we should have kept the jackets on, since it was quite cold, too.

We stopped off here for a quick bite as we had a bus to catch. The inner courtyard was pleasant, with several tables scattered around and a couple already taken. We just had wraps and drinks, nothing too fancy, which were fine and relatively inexpensive. However, every table seemed to have a small colony of flies drifting lazily around, which... More
