Description: This caffe , bar, restaurant has the most magnificent view in whole Malta Island!! It stays exactly in upper barracca gardens and face on three cities and sea view. at 12 everyday there is a saluting battery, if you are staying in caffeteria with a cup of coffe or any soft drink you can see it without standing up from ypur chair. lunch time its pleasure to have a plate of pasta or local traditional grilled fish lampuka, or a plate of raviolli with local goat cheese. There is a choice of different kind of pizzas for the pizza lovers. So i think for everyone who comes in Malta and of course going to visit its capital Valletta its the best place to have a rest for a drink or to have a lunch in amazing atmosphere and magnificent view on the grand harbour, 3 cities and non ending sea with always light blue horizont! You hve to add it in your list because who still didnt visit this place lost a lot pleasure during their trip on this beutiful Island in the middle of mediterrania. best regards!

Cafe Deux Baronnes appears to be the only non-rooftop open-air restaurant on the south side of Valletta with an unobstructed view of the Grand Harbour. It abuts the Saluting Battery but you cannot view the daily cannon shot due to a large wooden gate.

The food was tired and, so it appeared, was the staff. There is very little to recommend about this restaurant except for the view.

The only thing saving this restaurant from a "1" was free wifi & that they accept Visa.

We had asked our hotel to book a restaurant for diner and watching the fireworks . We therefore went last night to this restaurant. The view is wonderful and the place could have been great. However, the food was terrible, the service was sooooo bad, the organisation awful and when I tried to discuss with the manager, he threated us to put us out if we were not satisfied since many people, he said, would love to be there !! the price for what we have had was a robbery (16 euros per person for half of a plate of very bad food, cold, ..!). This is by far, the worst place we went during our wonderful trip to valetta. This place should be closed, and leave it for enjoying the view ?

We ate here twice in a short break, primarily for the view, but also because the food was good. The tuna salad was really excellent at 9 euros and the bruschetta at 4.50 was as filling as a pizza. If you time your visit for 12.00, you get a great view of the saluting ceremony too. Service can be a bit slow but just have another glass of wine and admire the view!

I went a couple of days ago with my friend. the waitress was very friendly and the food was delicious. she spoke to us in my native language (french), even though her french was broken the effort was lovely, making the place feel even more like home.

The view is wonderful the place could be a gold mine. However, the service is sooooo bad the waitress did not know what day it was or which way is up!!! Even using the fingers on both hands she failed to remember our table number, which was 5. When I paid for the price of two coffees it took another numpty 3 goes to get the price right, even though it is written on the menu.
This place should be closed and just enjoy the view
