Simple EleganceCafe Malta is very simply outfitted but obviously created with much attention to detail. The ceiling helped create the sense of really being 'out' for a meal. We are five elementary school teachers who are given one chance a year to enjoy lunch out. We were very happy with our choice!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic Mediterranean restaurant!A rare find. The owner and Chef make an effort to create true Mediterranean dishes from all over the Mediterranean basin and not just the Eastern Mediterranean as others do. The food is authentic, very fresh, and reasonably priced. Cafe Malta is our new favorite!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceAlthough we had to wait a few minutes for a table, everyone was gracious, apologized for our wait and made us feel welcome. The food was very good and the service, although a little slow, was friendly. We would eat there again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHeaven in South AustinThey are just the BEST at Cafe Malta. I adore their wine - especially the Catalina from Chile. And the Cava from Spain. The food is always fresh and delicious.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpected Find in South AustinGreat neighborhood gem in South Austin. Expect a place like this in downtown.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our brunch--niceWe enjoyed our brunch--nice atmosphere, excellent service, good food. We'll be back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Gem!This was our second visit in three days. That should say something about how well we were treated. The staff is wonderful and the food is outstanding. The food is locally sourced and prepared as ordered. For that reason the pace is slower than most chain restaurants, but we found that fact to be refreshing as we were not rushed from one course to another. This visit was for brunch. I had the Pain Perdu "french toast" although it was nothing like any french toast I have ever had. It was delightfully simple and delicious. My wife had the Eggs Malta which she allowed me to sample. They too were wonderful. If there was a down side it was that the prosciutto was a little stiff, but really tasty. A great restaurant that we will go back to.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming spotWe took out of town guests to have a late dinner and everyone was pleased with their entrees. It is gratifying that there is an intimate 'fine dining' establishment in south Austin that has consistent quality. This is my second review and I had the same entree, (fish) which was cooked to perfection. We will definitely go back to Cafe Malta.
Our server suggested a hot tea for me (non drinker) which was a good substitue for decaf coffee. Because it is a 'farm to table' type of menu, I wonder what will be on their Spring menu offerings.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, as always. A littleGreat food, as always. A little pricey for lunch (which is when I was there this time) but it was a special lunch with a friend. Plus, they brought her a complimentary dessert when they found out it was her birthday. Very cool! Have eaten there several times and will return.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth a Repeat ExperienceSo happy to have a dining choice like this cozy one in our neighborhood. Wait staff was helpful explaining the happy hour selections and menu choices, but as one who doesn't drink alcohol, not very many options were available. We all enjoyed our entrees which included whitefish, "drunken" pasta and a flatbread vegetable pizza. There are some interesting choices that make this farm to table offering very appealing. The menu will change (farewell to the beet salad) but some things remain according to the server. We had a relaxing dinner and did not feel rushed.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
