“Food OK ... but the service was hilarious!”
Review of Cafe' Matteo

Cafe' Matteo
Ranked #203 of 247 Restaurants in Valletta
Cuisines: Italian, Mediterranean
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The two waitresses on on the day we went just swriously did not have a clue - it was funny. They bought us the bill after we ordered drinks ... no no - we want lunch too! They took away my napkin before i'd finished eating - and yes it was messy food. Everything just seemed so slow and confusing to them. Food came out 20 minutes apart. Asking for a second drink bamboozled them. None of this sounds that amusing - but the experience certainly was. Food was ok - some cheap nice Maltese dishes available.

The Cafe is in St. Lucia Street, but the terrace occupies a sunny corner of Great Siege Square across from the massive Greek columns of the Law Courts. I stopped for a cappuccino and enjoyed sitting and listening to a busker with an upright piano in the street.

Food was poor and service worse.

We ordered Arancini and a Chicken Salad.

Arancini was bland and salad arrived without the coleslaw and yoghurt dressing advertised on the menu.

Asked waitress twice to ask about it. She was not interested to the point that she desperately tried to ignore us. Took meal back to find that they had run out of the dressing but didn't have the heart to tell us!

Location appealed to us for a drink and a snack , drinks and food are cheap in price, but quality of food is dreadful, we watched our food be taken to several tables before reaching us, then it being cold, staff too disorganised to even ask if all was ok. Visited the toilets and decided I really should of checked them out first before ordering food
Complained only to be told by manger not their problem, but actually ours, a few men that had been hanging round the bar gathered whilst we complained making this situation very uncomfortable

Fantastic location in Valetta next to one of the main attractions. Miserable service when we ordered coffee so decided to go elsewhere for lunch.

Coffee was OK, the grumpy service cost them our lunch though.
