I agree with Laura's directions. Alternatively, you can take the second left as you wind round from the main gate onto Triq al Mesquita, then first right and left at the end.

Dine in truly romantic surroundings beneath the flowering Oleander tree in the vine-clustered courtyard during the summer, and by candle-light and an open log fireplace that keeps the restaurant warm during the winter months. The Medina presents a selected à la Carte menu based on Mediterranean and local cuisine, frequently changed to guarantee the pleasure of regular diners.
