Found Don Mesquita through trip advisor and having ventured down a few side streets found this little hidden gem of a place. Has outdoor seating, a quaint indoor seating and additional seating downstairs. Great and friendly customer service and the food was outstanding

Loved the Maltese platter and, as childish as I looked, had to take a picture of it to remember the ingredients so I could reproduce it at home. (Don't forget the huge stuffed olives.) No better choice at twice the price.

Best and most authentic lunch I had in all of Malta. The Maltese platter for two was incredible, and more than affordable. Recommendeded if you want a real Maltese dining experience and not those tourist trap restaurants you see everywhere.

Two customers who arrived after me were served the same lunch before me. No apology from waiter, so I paid for drinks and left. Annoyed.

A fantastic setting where some of the early King Of Thrones was filmed. The square is a sight to behold and a sun trap. Service from the team is excellent and the prices are more than fair, this is a place that needs to be...More
