Small quaint place hidden in a small strip center in South Austin. Had a great Sunday brunch. Nice variety of egg dishes all done with a Mediterranean twist from locally sourced ingredients. Bar looked fun and the cocktail menu looked like it would have been fun later in the day. Cheese board appetizer was really good and service was good... More

We had a fabulous experience at this tiny bistro tucked into a strip mall. Pleasantly surprised by the decor, food and service that was presented. Top notch.

This is not my first visit in this restaurant. I have been many times, because I enjoy the food and like the service. I had a croque-madame and I ioved it. They have a "Tour of the Forks" that I promised myself to try out. They have a menu from a different country and the wines to accompany them. Looks... More

...and completely delightful! Madame and I wanted something simple and good on a recent Sunday night, when we were trying to escape the clutches of the NFL on television. We'd read about Cafe Malta and, fortunately, it is in a part of Austin we know well, so even though it is back from the street in a little strip mall,... More

Sometimes strip centers have the best restaurant gems. Last night while in Austin on business my colleague and I decided to venture out to a restaurant other than our usuals and found Café Malta. I checked out the reviews and liked what I read so we were game. Several reviews complained about a limited menu and perceived small portions. Personally... More

It was a special occasion celebrating a visiting relative. Another cousin made the reservations. She likes the place. The restaurant itself is pleasant. The food was good. I particularly enjoyed their Mussels appetizer; very good. What detracted from the whole experience was the lackluster service. The most important factor that makes any restaurant memorable is the quality of service. Other... More

Don't let the small strip mall deceive you, this place is top notch and very classy. All of their dishes are delicious although portions are not shareable but perfect portions for one. The small cozy atmosphere makes you feel like you're on vacation and is further complimented by their delicious drinks. I recommend the Licosa and the Thank You Sir,... More

A friend and I weren't sure what to expect from a place called Cafe Malta - Maltese cuisine, perhaps? So we went for brunch one day and were pleasantly surprised not only by the friendly staff but also the excellent food. We each had a bellini, then he chose the steak & eggs while I went for the Croque Madame... More

I have visited for both lunch and dinner and have not been disappointed. The service is good and the food is really good. The location in South Austin is great for a nice meal without having to stress about parking. We also took 2 kids for one of the visits.

I have loved Cafe Malto the two times I have been there and I can't wait to go back. I always get the steak with the layered potato thingy on the side, it is so delicious, but there is one problem. They do not give enough food. I mean it. I leave Cafe Malta so hungry! I always get dessert.... More
