The family behind L’enoteca. This is Theresa, Niko, and little Theo – the TNT team. After long careers in the five star hotel/restaurant industry where we met, the desire to create something special on our own could not be denied any longer. L’enoteca is where we channel all our passion and energy, doing what we love everyday. And you’re invited to live our dream with us, every time you visit.
L’enoteca is a neighbourhood wine bar located in the heart of Rabat, close to Mdina – once the capital and the oldest city in Malta. Since opening in December 2019, we have established ourselves as a place to be reckoned with, serving quality food and wine, in a cosy setting and warm atmosphere. We invite you to come in and enjoy a memorable experience that is out of the ordinary. Our concept is simple: high quality home made local products to accompany every wine lover’s taste. We have a romantic interior below in our historical cave dating back thousands of years, or a relaxed al-fresco outdoor dining area. Either way, you will want to sit for a very long time. Whether you visit us for lunch, dinner or simply for a glass of wine, we offer you an escape which you will wish to have over and over again.
We stand behind our vision for honest food. Food that does not need elaborate presentations, but just presence. Leaving the quality of the products, speak for themselves, simplicity at its best is what we believe is the shortest path to your palate euphoria. An example of this beautiful dance is our olive, rosemary and garlic focaccia… an all-time favourite.
Our view of the wine selection follows a similar direction. You will definitely find a few classics here., however the majority of our wine selection is something you will rarely find, or have ever heard of. Our mission is to educate and show the beauty of the world of wine, helping you to find your next favourite bottle whilst cheering to life.
