Just off the beaten path on the outskirts of Dingli, Diar il-Bniet has established itself as one of Malta’s most authentic restaurants. The range of fresh produce and traditional products on offer are all sourced from beautiful farmland just 200 metres away, and now, the restaurant has expanded its premises just in time for the holidays.
Diar il-Bniet itself inhabits a former farmhouse, adding to the restaurant’s charm with an unparalleled sense of character. The end of October saw a reception at the Dingli establishment where it was announced that a whole new level under the existing one was added to the family-run restaurant.
The extension sees a whole new floor added underneath the three-year-old restaurant, featuring a fully-functional open-kitchen that feels straight out of every traditional Maltese household. Of course, some important additions have been made, including a huge wood oven to make sure all that fresh produce gets the proper treatment it deserves.
“The investment carried out will bring with it the provision of new menus including that of the Maltese Ftira and Mejda Maltija,” the owners explained.
Apart from new menus which will be joining their seasonal ones, Diar il-Bniet now have the facilities of meetings rooms equipped with audio-visual equipment, for that special team-buliding event with a delicious difference.
Added physical space isn’t the only thing the establishment’s new area is offering. The Dingli restaurant will now also play host to a myriad of events, from wine and deli tasting sessions to cooking and craft classes.
The event gave attendees a taste of what’s to come, with live traditional music by Toni l-Għannej.
If you’ve ever fancied tasting a bit of what Maltese cuisine has to offer, then now more than ever, Diar il-Bniet is the place to be.
