We enjoyed our visit, the restaurant is beautiful, the food was lovely, the only think that let us down was the slow table service. But in saying that we would definitely come back.

The cafe was beautiful and customers seemed happy however as soon as I walked into the place I was stared at and felt super uncomfortable, servers also ignored me. I finally got taken to my table and my friend and I sat down, they straight away asked for our drink order which is nice except we weren't ready, which is what we said to them. Soon after we chose our drinks, however none of the waiters came to serve us. Even making eye contact with the waiters they did not come to help or take our order. This went on for 15-20 mins. We ended up making a booking at Park House next door which was fabulous. The food at Park House was amazing and the service was admirable. It was a public holiday and not many places were open, so Park House was especially busy. They were still super friendly and ensured that my friend and I were comfortable.

We were in town for the weekend and someone suggested here. We had a beautiful little table by the window where it was quiet enough that we could converse easily and the food was amazing. Loved it!

The steaks were awful. Other meals ok
Then the receptionist could not divide our bill into three and wanted to overcharge us.
Overall not a great dining experience.

Once again Cafe Valetta lived up to its reputation, the food, service and ambience was top notch- although next time I visit, please make sure there's some lemon meringue left for my dessert 😉

Food was great for breakfast but the coffee was terrible no flavour. My cappuccino in a mug could hardly taste any coffee and had to much chocolate on top tasted more like a moccacino

One of the best dining experiences we have had in along time. The food was amazing, fresh juice and coffee to die for. The out door dining is perfect.

Great service and good coffee.
We were able to have a quiet area with room for 2 prams which was very good.
A pull down change table would be helpful for parents of babies. Thanks

We love Café Valetta. We arrived earlier than our booked time, but luckily our table was ready. The only problem was, that we were barely finished eating, when we were told that they needed our table in 15 min. It's not a big deal. I understand that it was Valentine's day and this very popular restaurant was probably fully booked. We always refer people from out of town to Café Valetta.
