Diar il-Bniet

Their "traditional homemade Maltese food" is "exquisite".

The best things do not necessarily lie in front of us. A short jaunt to Dingli proves this! Diar il-Bniet is a small farm/estate that showcases its fresh produce within its own restaurant. A totally authentic Maltese eatery, expect dishes that have been handed down through the generations and represent the true home-cooked flavour of these Mediterranean islands. The restaurant is rurally furnished and the estate’s seasonal produce proudly displayed. There’s nothing pretentious, only honesty flourishes here, and it tastes exceptional. A wine list of homegrown wines are world class with the addition of some international favourites.

Many menu dishes are synonymous with Maltese culture. Traditional snail stew is a fantastic choice to start off with, or else grilled octopus with red pepper dip or rabbit pastizzi pie. Main courses of slowcooked panfried calf liver, lamb leg and the aubergines stuffed with beef minced meat and fresh tomato sauce, give a true taste of Malta’s national dishes. Served with a good mix of crunchy roast potatoes and mixed fresh vegetables, the essence is totally genuine. House-made desserts are exceptional – deep-fried imqaret with ġelat tan-nanna is a total must, or else try one of the excellent puddings and cakes on offer.
