You cannot visit Malta and not visit this wonderful place. Perfect food, cakes too good to hurry, good service and spectacular views. I cant rate this wonderful place high enough.

Busy cafe with fab views over Malta from the bastions of Mdina. Don't miss the chocolate cake. Gets busy so go early. Basic menu. But best I think for cakes!

If you visit Mdina, stop here for refreshment and absorb the wonderful feeling of Mdina. The views from the walls are spectacular, and the cakes are pretty good also.

The staff were so accommodating when we were in a bit of a rush for our flight, and the food was the amazing (try the carrot cake!) The view was unbelievable and all of the food was a very reasonable price. Highly recommend to anyone...More

Lovely place to eat. If it hadn't been so windy we could have ate outside. Coffee and baguette were lovely. And not expensive. Service was good.

We had heard about this restaurant, it was so hyped up we were cautious of bursting our bubble. It didn’t disappoint us at all. The staff were a delight, the view outstanding, the food scrumptious and not expensive at all. We will return. Loved it.
