We are a very nice meal here on our second night in Valletta but it wasn't brilliant, good but nothing special. The staff were friendly but busy and didn't make you feel special also quite expensive and no Happy Hour as in other restaurants. Do...More

Do you like onions? Do you like have an abnormal amount of them in your food? If the answer is yes, Kantina is the place for you. Awful food, pretty obvious tourist trap which unfortunately we have fallen into. These places wouldn’t last a week...More

We visited at the end of October and things were quietening down a bit. It was nice to go somewhere that was buzzy. If the weather looks a bit dodgy, you can book a table in the middle of the canopy. They have half bottles...More

Both my wife and I had burgers. Both were very tasty. Staff were fine. A nice place to sit and watch the world go by which is what these pavement businesses are all about.

This is clearly a tourist restaurant that is very popular. We ate king prawns which were perfectly cooked, a good portion and served with salad and the inevitable chips. It all went down very well with a bottle of local white. So good that we...More

My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed the penne meatballs - very tasty. The nicest pasta dish I’ve had in a long while.

Nothing wrong per se but nothing good either. Had the Malta sausage salad and was literally a dry burger on a few pieces of salad. Nothing special. No service with a smile and had to go and queue downstairs to pay.

This is a family run business and we do our best to give the home made food feeling. We mainly cook A La Carte therefore the menu changes twice daily, depending on what is fresh during the day. For those that are in more of a rush there are the snacks and burgers menu. Being exactly in the middle of Valletta one could shade themselves from the scorching sun under our lovely trees whilst having their well deserved break.
