A fun location on the corner of the main square in Birgu and we were tempted in by the €4 special on the board- Maltese imqaret -two large date slices served warm- with hazelnut Maltese ice cream (in a good sized prepackaged tub but don't let that put you off) which was absolutely delicious together. Service was friendly and welcoming.... More

Birgu is one of "The Three Cities" of Malta which has a fantastic 16th and 17th Century History. This cafe is in the central square and provides tasty food and snacks. Rabbit is a particular Maltese treat and they do it well in Cafe du Brazil. I also like their English Breakfast. The staff are welcoming and the seats are... More

I have a house in Isla (Senglea) but enjoy the walk across the bridge to Vittorioso (Birgu) and my favourite eatery is Cafe du Brazil - I'm aghast that dCentre is rated higher! Anyway back to Cafe du Brazil - it is a perfect venue to watch the world go by and enjoy a Cisk or two. The food is... More

Oh my! We were hungry! My family and i have eaten in this square many times, however; we have always given this place a wide birth for whatever reason, sometimes you just know, and the name Du Brazil somehow says nothing, not to me anyhow, but what's in a name you may ask? Hunger gets the better of us we... More

We ate here early one evening during our stay in Birgu. I only wanted something light, so I ordered a feta cheese salad. This came with crusty local bread. It was very fresh and tasty and came in quite a large portion. My husband chose a burger with fries, which again was very fresh and cooked well. We washed this... More

We visited this lovely cafe and different times during our stay in Birgu. You can have nice snacks for breakfast or lunch and all day round. The menu has some typical Maltese dishes and by far the best Imqaret in town. Super delicious apple cake and chicken wraps as well. Seating is great outside and cosy inside. Friendly and very...

Wanted just a taste of the fresh hand made pasta - had a small plate for two made especially! Perfect! Spinach and ricotto. Just the right size portion. Staff were delightful, service was spot on, and the location in Vittoriosa is ideal before or after mooching around the delightful local lanes and alleyways. Thank you, lovely people, for sharing the... More

The staff are not only friendly but helpful even if it means suggesting somewhere else. That said we came back for coffee and then for lunch. Probably the nicest spot in the square so far that we have tried. The food was very good and the coffee is excellent. Most definitely worth a visit and I am confident you will... More
