We really wanted a coffee break while on visit to the Mdina and looked up this classic tea garden. We got a great table with a view and had lovely cake and coffee. It was a charming place with a great view despite it being a bit of a tourist trap.
I can highly recommend the orange and almond cake. Absolutely delicious!

With a nice view outside , you should sit there for a coffee and a piece of cake (not more).
Prices are very reasonable for such touristic location.
Stuff are not so nice (although seems like a leitmotif in Malta...) but good enough to serve you that coffee and bill...

The place is all about its view, the best place in Mdina to enjoy a coffee and a snack, because the view is breathtaking. It’s a little pricey, we ordered a chicken salad and it cost 10€ but at least it was very big and had a lot of chicken so we enjoyed it! The service was very good and everyone was super kind!

I have been going to Fontanella' tea garden for many years and if you can get up the stairs I can recommend a table up there to see the view, the food is very good and the cakes are excellent.
