The house is a perfect example of a typical Maltese house which has been lovingly restored to its former glory. The guide was excellent and gave us an insight to the history of the house as well as intersting facts about all the lovely collections of furniture, art, silver and porcelain. It was a truly enjoyable tour!

Such an interesting historical house, each room full of lovingly collected furniture, paintings and artifacts. The owner/guide is very welcoming and enthusiastic and is a fount of knowledge about the house, the original physician owners and the contents. I would most certainly recommend a visit to this beautiful house.

A visit to this beautiful home complemented by a fresh and entertaining tour by a lovely lady who obviously is very passionate about all that is Casa Bernard. The history, not only of the actual house, but also of the treasures, within is riveting. Well done and thanks for restoring and preserving !!

This is a truly beautiful building and definitely worth a visit. We were charmed by the town of Rabat and wish that we could have spent more time there.

A must see ! An absolutely beautiful house which should be visited by tourists and locals alike. The first room in the house dates back to 1350...great start. The guide is very knowledgeable and makes the visit a wonderful experience.

As an American expatriate living in Malta most of each year, I volunteer to organize monthly "visits" for a local group of other resident expatriates to Maltese attractions and this was one of our best experiences to date. Casa Bernard is a lovingly restored pallazino dating to the fifteen hundreds during the time of the Knights of Malta and certainly... More

I passed this house while wandering up the street and saw the notice on the door that it was open to the public. I returned to the cafe to collect my friends and we were back just in time for the last visit of the day at 4.00pm. The owners made us very welcome but as they were going out... More
