Food tour Malta.
  • We took the food tour on Wednesday evening (moved from the afternoon to the evening due to the heat) in Mdina.
    What a treat! We started off with pastizzis filled with either cheese or a pea mixture and a local tea. I don’t even like tea, but I really enjoyed this tea! After that, we visited another restaurant and had a cheese, meat and veggie tray with sun-dried tomatoes, sausage, two types of cheese, and a bean spread, which were quite good. The next restaurant was our main entree and we had rabbit with roasted potatoes. I’m not a huge fan of rabbit, but my husband loved it. Finally, we had our dessert at another restaurant, which was date puffs drizzled with honey, and a small (less than a shot glass) glass of the restaurant’s own orange liqueur made from their own oranges. That was delicious! All of the foods that we ate were typical Maltese foods, which is what we were hoping they would be.
    However, more than the food, we loved hearing the history of Malta and Mdina, specifically. Our tour guide, Nick, was like a walking history book! He was able to answer all of our questions and we learned so much about Malta!
    So…if you enjoy tasting unique foods from a specific country and learning history at the same time, this food tour is the way to go! We would highly recommend it!

    Good food and GREAT history!
  • Ingrid was just amazing. Not only she was giving information about food but also a lot about the history of the buildings of Valletta. We had more than enough food. Happy we did it!

    The Tour was more than we had expected.
  • ……. great way to taste the traditional dishes of Malta. Also good insight to some of the history of Valetta and Malta. Highly Recommend”

    “Wonderful experience”
  • She was knowledgeable about the city, the food and the culture. There was A LOT of food, so one thing guaranteed you won’t be starving after this experience. Delicious dishes and local products. Highly recommend this experience, as you get to see both the city and taste great local dishes.”

    We had a wonderful food experience with Celine
  • We had such a great visit with Nick. Being able to learn about the town and discuss Maltese life with a guide was a big plus. We saw larger tours visiting the city, and we were so grateful for our personalized experience. Every stop was great with delicious food and wonderful service.
    Mdina Food Tour – awesome!
  • Our tour guide Nick was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable about Malta’s history. Growing up in Melbourne to Maltese parents I knew about Maltese food and the selection offered was a very good indication! I go on food tours in most cities I visit & this was one of the best ones. I highly recommend this tour.

    Excellent food tour.
