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.
