Afternoon Tea in Malta

Palazzo Parisio - Afternoon tea in Malta

Palazzo Parisio

The Garden Restaurant at Palazzo Parisio is the perfect place for Afternoon Tea in Malta, and for good reasons. Not only does the 18th-century palace add a charming touch, ideally suited for this elegant tradition, but it is also enhanced by being served under the shade of flowering trees.

Beyond its aesthetics, Afternoon Tea here offers an opportunity to enjoy the masterpieces created by the restaurant's pastry chef. Furthermore, the Baroness of the palace, credited with introducing this ritual to Palazzo, occasionally steps into the kitchen to craft a cake or two. As a result, guests may find themselves fortunate enough to savour a slice of her bakes.
