An excellent meal in an excellent setting. A bit heavy fan in the corner. Should stay at lowest setting.

The internal yard was a bit crowded, hence noisy and stuffy.

Had a wonderful evening with friends. We ate in the beautiful courtyard. The food was one of the best we have had during our holiday . When we had finished, we got a little guided tour of the bar and restaurant in this 500 years old building by one of the waiters. Thoroughly enjoyed everything about the whole evening.

On holiday for the first time in Malta and celebrating our 26th anniversary. Absolutely beautiful setting in the heart of the Silent City in Mdina. Services was excellent and they clocked it was our anniversary and were super sweet. Food was outstanding and we had the Tagliata as our main utterly delicious. I would recommend what I think was called the Mellieha Gin Cocktail from the starter menu, oh so good. We will be returning to Malta and will definitely go back to this restaurant.

Lovely courtyard setting and excellent menu and quality of food. As we were in the courtyard we did have to ask for our glasses and dinnerware to be replaced due to what had fallen from the plants. It was a very quiet afternoon so there wasn’t much atmosphere however the background music was nice. The service was ok but could be more welcoming and a bit more knowledgable.

Jako was our server and he was lovely. Attentive and friendly. The food was out of this world, me and my partner travel a lot and we’ve eaten at a lot of lovely restaurants, but this was the best meal I’ve had. Thank you for having us, we will be back!

Excellent restaurant, serving high quality food. We had the pork belly and the lamb dish, both superb. Lovely place to come for a special dinner for our honeymoon.

I had eaten in 2 good places in Valletta & based on the reviews, I was expecting the food to be better. Friendly service & nice place but the food was good but nothing special. Still I would recommend it as I am not sure if there is anything better in the area...

This is not a cheap restaurant but the food is well presented and attempts to be creative. The soups were tasty but using the same stock basis with just different additions. Lacking the night we went in a choice of fish so resorted to meat alternatives. Offered a good range of local wines. The Astarte was light and refreshing. Service was attentive but somewhat forceful ( maybe this is a Maltese characteristic?)
