...and completely delightful! Madame and I wanted something simple and good on a recent Sunday night, when we were trying to escape the clutches of the NFL on television. We'd read about Cafe Malta and, fortunately, it is in a part of Austin we know well, so even though it is back from the street in a little strip mall,... More

Sometimes strip centers have the best restaurant gems. Last night while in Austin on business my colleague and I decided to venture out to a restaurant other than our usuals and found Café Malta. I checked out the reviews and liked what I read so we were game. Several reviews complained about a limited menu and perceived small portions. Personally... More

It was a special occasion celebrating a visiting relative. Another cousin made the reservations. She likes the place. The restaurant itself is pleasant. The food was good. I particularly enjoyed their Mussels appetizer; very good. What detracted from the whole experience was the lackluster service. The most important factor that makes any restaurant memorable is the quality of service. Other... More

Don't let the small strip mall deceive you, this place is top notch and very classy. All of their dishes are delicious although portions are not shareable but perfect portions for one. The small cozy atmosphere makes you feel like you're on vacation and is further complimented by their delicious drinks. I recommend the Licosa and the Thank You Sir,... More

A friend and I weren't sure what to expect from a place called Cafe Malta - Maltese cuisine, perhaps? So we went for brunch one day and were pleasantly surprised not only by the friendly staff but also the excellent food. We each had a bellini, then he chose the steak & eggs while I went for the Croque Madame... More

I have visited for both lunch and dinner and have not been disappointed. The service is good and the food is really good. The location in South Austin is great for a nice meal without having to stress about parking. We also took 2 kids for one of the visits.

I have loved Cafe Malto the two times I have been there and I can't wait to go back. I always get the steak with the layered potato thingy on the side, it is so delicious, but there is one problem. They do not give enough food. I mean it. I leave Cafe Malta so hungry! I always get dessert.... More

I've been several times. Personally, I love the place because it's right down the street from house. The food is awesome!! It's really nice to have a place in South Austin that isn't smushed in the Soco or first street and Barton springs area. Plenty of parking. The atmosphere is great. Hell, yes I will go there again and fabulous... More

Small and intimate, yet easy to converse without extraneous noise. Servers are competent and friendly, but the excellence comes from the creative food dishes that are beautifully prepared, perfectly seasoned ,and are an excellent value. Chic casual is the interior theme, with the ever changing specials printed on a large blackboard.

My friend treated me here for a birthday lunch. It was a perfect place for a special meal. Our choices were well prepared and delicious and the service was attentive, too. My lasagna was the best ever, but I only wish that the portions were a bit larger. I could have easily eaten a double portion of what I was... More
