Oozes bucketfuls of Birgu....cellar...traditional. Great wine list and plenty to choose from on menu. Slightly off the tourist track but well worth the atmosphere

This place definitely had the feel of THE place to be on a Saturday night! We arrived at 7.30pm not having booked and managed to persuade them that we were happy to sit at the high table with two stools near the bar area. Many people turned up who hadn't booked and who were politely turned away. The wine list... More

Loved this place. What a discovery, hidden away down the backstreets of wonderful Medieval Birgu. Food & wine were superb and the kitchen stays open late which is also a great find. Waiters also very friendly

Have been going to this wine bar for over 6 years and have never been disappointed. The staff is really friendly and helpful when it comes to picking a wine, the food is always fresh and tastes good, the ambiance is brilliant. It is a very quiet restaurant. I love going there at the end of a very long day/week... More

Very good experience at Del Borgo wine bar in Birgu. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, genuine food! Personally I loved Bruschette and Ravioli filled with rabbit meat :) They also have a good choice of wine. I will definitely go again!

This was my second visit to Del Borgo. The dining room is in a series of basements in a 500 plus year old building. Great feeling of intimacy. Excellent food and service

Del Borgo opened its doors in 2005, the place, which used to be the cellar of the Prince of Wales’ Own band club, was once a centuries-old palace. The place is a typical Maltese dwelling with a lot of character, and vaulted ceilings with a great atmosphere. Stone vaults divided into rooms and furnished tastefully, with the occasional sofa with... More

After having been refurbished a few years ago, this place oozes charm. The only downside to Del Borgo so far has been that not all the food is served at the same time so, if you're at a large table, some people might have to wait 5-10minutes. Having said that, the quality of the food is impeccable. I've tried their... More

It has been a while since we last came here so were looking forward to spend a pleasant evening here in the company of friends with wine and platters. Upon opening the menu, we realised how limiting the platter menu was and we asked if they had a dip platter. For a wine bar, we were quite surprised to hear... More
