Palazzo de Piro

"A burger to die for in an impeccable place". The "perfect setting with breathtaking views"

Few places engage and excite all of the senses like the Palazzo de Piro, a 17th Century Palazzo nestled within Mdina’s timeless bastions. Part of the Infinitely Xara group, Palazzo de Piro has earned a reputation for charming ambience, courteous and professional service, and exceptional food. Whether you prefer the relaxed setting of the courtyard, the opulence and elegance of the indoor dining area, or the delightful view of a table atop the bastions, Palazzo de Piro promises the perfect setting. Throughout the day, the cafe bistro is a great option for a relaxed lunch with the family, pets included. During weekend evenings, Palazzo de Piro transforms into an enchanting and romantic venue that’s perfect for a bottle of wine and a platter to share with your special someone.
The menu presents a selection of snacks, starters and mains showcasing the most exciting tastes from Malta, the Mediterranean and beyond. Every dish is as aesthetically brilliant as it is tasty, and portions are surprisingly abundant. For a true taste of Malta, try out the succulent rabbit livers with wild mushroom and eggplant ragout, capers, raisins, rabbit jus and fresh rocket. Next, you might want to savour the tender and juicy slow-roasted lamb rump, rubbed with Moroccan spices and accompanied by grilled zucchini, minted yoghurt and baked potatoes. Conclude with a lavish dessert from Palazzo de Piro’s fine selection to wrap up the wonderful experience.
