A prestigious commercial property situated in the main piazza of the residential and historical town of Rabat, just a stone’s throw away from the medieval city of Mdina. A 17th century aristocratic palazzo which was one of the few residential houses built in the 17th-century in Rabat, as buildings outside fortified cities were not encouraged at that time. It has a vernacular and modern facade, that includes a closed timber balcony and two neoclassic columns uncommon to the time. In the inside of this palazzo, one can find examples of baroque architecture including the coat-of-arms of the Spanish noble family who built it, the decorative archways from one room to the other and the original flagstone staircase among others. This Palazzo is now a Restaurant, a corner building set on three floors with the top floor being an open air terrace seating 40 – 50 people and each floor having a footprint of approx 180sqm. The property has an imposing entrance abutting onto open spaces with beautiful trees and a separate entrance leading onto the main square of the town. The property has retained all it’s original features being a listed property, notwithstanding, the kitchens and guest toilets have been changed to exacting standards, a cold room can be found on the top floor and there is a food elevator to all the floors. The Restaurant can easily accommodate 180 covers in six spacious rooms spread on two floors and the roof terrace.
