Venue: Bacchus Restaurant, Mdina

Friday, 28th of February  - 19:00 – 23:30

The walled-city of Mdina, also known as the ‘Silent City’, is believed to be one of Malta’s iconic symbols and is especially interesting to lovers of history and architecture. Walking through Mdina’s gates will allow you to travel through time to a place that has not changed much throughout the ages.

Right at the gates of Mdina, you will be met by knights, led by the Master of Ceremonies, who will escort you to the Bacchus Restaurant. There, you will be invited to watch a Knighting Ceremony, which will make you feel like you were transported to medieval times.

The restaurant, which has been preparing and serving quality food for the last forty years, is housed inside two chambers from the XVII century and, similarly to Mdina, they have also not changed much throughout the years. The chambers, built by the Grand Master Fra Martino De Redin back in 1657, have preserved their original characteristics, which turns this restaurant into the perfect place to introduce you to the Maltese cuisine.

Besides the Knighting Ceremony at the beginning of the event, there will also be more entertainment during the dinner: tarot reading, sword fighting, and even sword swallowing.

We invite you to take part in this wondrous experience, which will hopefully allow you to escape these modern times, into a different and curious scenario. We look forward to sharing this dinner and show with you during your stay in Malta!
