Growing up with half of my family being Maltese means I visit as often as possible. This trip was my sixth time over to the island and with that, probably my tenth (if not more) to Cordina! It's definitely my favourite restaurant on the island. I'd always recommend sitting outside, but take a trip inside to have a look at... More

On a main square, smart service and great looking cakes and beverages. A treat indeed with quality all the way. Nice outside on the square or inside with a classic immaculate establishment.

The seating outside in the sun is preferred. It's located in a busy high traffic area which offers a form of entertainment. The service very professional and prompt. The food was very good and the portions were generous. The prices were good, The pastries are amazing.

We visited three times during the week enjoying the sunny courtyard, the people watching and the amazing sun dial/calendar. We 'upgraded' on the second occasion to a large cappuccino and were slightly disappointed that it more closely resembled others' standard size and twice we found the drink Luke-warm. The pastizzi at €.80 was super as was the kids ice cream... More

My husband and I took our 4.5yr old across on the ferry to Valletta and stopped off here for an ice cream. We were highly disappointed however after been excited by the variety of flavours and crowds descending on the cafe to find that once we had sat down to enjoy our pots of ice cream they were all except...

A must to visit while in Valletta. Bygone grandeur, beautiful setting and helpful service. Must take your camera. Can be rather busy on weekends. Heavenly place to enjoy a coffee (and pastry) and forget about the rest of the world ... Rather more a tea room than a restaurant.

Situated between Piazza Regina and and St. Georges Square, just opposite the Magnificent Biblioteca and the GrandMasters Palace. Sit inside and marvel at the old school catering and the vaulted frescoed ceilings. Sit outside under the umbrellas and watch the world go by. With 80,000 daily visitors, there is alot to watch.

There is nowhere quite like Cordina's! The cakes are lovely and the ice cream is probably better. There was a lot of tolerance for my 3 year old and I just love the hustle and bustle of it. The gift side of things is expensive, but then you can always buy that sort of thing in nearby shops.
