Overview

More
A precious addition to Malta’s entertainment scene, Café del Mar Malta opened its doors in July 2013 for its first summer of music, sunset and fun. Offering stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and St Paul’s island, Café del Mar is fast establishing itself as the place to be. Forming part of the Malta National Aquarium complex, Café del Mar is the ideal place to relax, have a swim and enjoy a drink from our variety of cocktails. You can also have a meal with an unmistakable and delightful Mediterranean flavour. Designed by one of Malta’s foremost designers, Mark Pace, Café del Mar sits magnificently at the water’s edge. The design is all about the sea and Mediterranean sunsets. The infinity pool reaches out into the clear blue waters. The seating area and pool deck have unobstructed panoramic views of the sea. The design is simple, predominantly white to fully compliment the natural beauty of the surroundings. The central idea of the design is simple, it allures you to sit and admire the views against a backdrop of ambient and chill out music, synonymous with Café del Mar. Café del Mar is hugely famous around the world for its chill-out compilation albums which have been released annually since 1994, pioneering the chill-out genre. Special guest DJs will entertain our guests whilst enjoying the surroundings. The perfect place to enjoy the simple things in life… amazing views of the blue Mediterranean Sea, stunning sunsets, refreshing cocktails, chill-out music and great Mediterranean food.

Food isn't great at this place. Looked for a bite to eat after visiting the aquarium, pizza is worth avoiding. The rest of the meal was OK but not great.
