Overview
More
Diar il-Bniet is a Maltese Agri-Tourism experience based around a Farm Shop and A Farm Kitchen in Dingli. Fresh produce from the family run farm in a valley 200 metres away is used to make the delicious fresh fruit, jams, wine and oils you can buy in the farm shop. Alternatively the traditional cuisine served in the kitchen uses the farm's produce, ensuring that the ingredients are fresh and the recipes are the same ones that have been passed down through generations. It is an exhibition of Maltese gastronomy in a traditional and rustic family setting. We want our customers to truly understand that Diar il-Bniet is a place where taste meets tradition.

Without a doubt, it is worth taking the bus from Mdina/Rabat for this restaurant! It is homemade, freshly and traditionally cooked with seasonal veggies. It is a must!

If you want to taste our good traditional food this place is a must. You could see whatever you order being cooked. My memories went back to my dear Mum's delicious cooking. We recomand it to locals and tourists visiting the Island.

Depending on which plate you order. If it's just a light lunch, I would say EUR30 max however if you opt for two dishes per person it'll be closer to EUR60-70
