So I am still sat outside at the Kantina as I write my review. Decided to come here for some lunch and a quick drink with my partner.

Great little place, lovely staff, nice menu for lunch (they close around 6) and the best hot chocolates! Perfect for a post cathedral visit! Be warned however - as Brits we are no longer used to smoking areas at cafes etc. If you are eating under the awning, the non-smoking area is to the left!

Stopped here by chance and received a warm welcome from friendly staff. Pasta meal and Chicken Caesar salad were very good. Mulled wine and house were reasonably priced as was the whole bill. All in all a nice place to have a meal and would visit again.

Daughter and I wanted somewhere to eat that served good food and value for money. We got both. The hamburgers were tasty, fresh and extremely filling. In fact I couldn't eat all of mine. Excellent service, fast service.

In town We have tried several restaurants. This is satisfying because it combines good athmosphere, local food, good dishes, good prices. Gentle the waiters, good also the local house wine. We had a dinner substantial and good (rabbit) with about 20 euros each.

I went twice; The first time i got the recommended (on the blackboard) seafood soup. it was pricey but delicious and hit the spot. I got a nice glass of local wine to go with it. I came back a couple of days later and ordered the local rabbit stew. This seemed to clearly be the tourist trap dish: It... More

Description
This is a family run business and we do our best to give the home made food feeling. We mainly cook A La Carte therefore the menu changes twice daily, depending on what is fresh during the day. For those that are in more of a rush there are the snacks and burgers menu. Being exactly in the middle of Valletta one could shade themselves from the scorching sun under our lovely trees whilst having their well deserved break.
