I was disappointed with the food mainly because when we ordered wraps there was way too much wasabi sauce. So much so that we were unable to eat them! When the waitress asked if all was ok we said that we could not eat the food. There was no apology and ice cream was offered "free" to the youngest member... More

Palazzo de Piro has a courtyard with wonderful setting - you can see right across the island to Valletta. Not only that, it has an excellent menu, and I think excellent service. Thing is, we went there three times. The first for a fine coffee and tart, the second for a superb lunch when the service and food couldn't be... More

On a Saturday night it is difficult to find a place where you can have a high level of service, however, I really find it difficult to accept such from a well renowned place as this. I arrived late, only for dessert. Me, together with a couple of friends, ordered some cakes and coffee. I personally ordered a warm apple... More

Sitting atop of the Mdina city walls, the restaurant of Palazzo de Piro offers the best views when having lunch. The menu is average, but the environment is stunning.

The ticket to visit the Cathedral and its museum includes the Palazzo Piro. Small but interesting and the walk within the walls of Mdina is worth it.
