These are the best pastizzi we have had since we arrived here - very fresh too. They also do ftira and some other local delicacies. Great place for a snack lunch. You can take the pastizzi away and eat them in the nearby park too!

Pastizzi is the go to street snack in Malta. And this unassuming Pastizzerie served the best I tasted during my time in Malta. At only 30 cents each they’d have to be the best food buy one could lay your hands on. They came with pea, chicken of cheese filling. Crystal Palace basically does thing extremely well.
Spending some time here in the evening when the local men come out and drinking a local Cisk beer is a nice traveller experience.
They also made a great Qassata as well. Think of it as a more substantial version of he Pastizzi.

The place to stop for pastizzi in Rabat/Mdina.

Very traditionally Maltese - nothing to look at, but the food is hot and fresh and just as it should be.

A firm favourite!

Really busy with locals and tourists, which is off-putting, but worth the bustle and noise. Nice pastizzi and great value.

In many guide books but ,as a visitor ,you feel you are not that welcome. Locals get served ahead of you. Go instead to Santa Lucia just down the street .
