Family History in Agriculture

Homegrown produce and Maltese cuisine has been at the heart of our family for decades. Fond childhood memories flood our minds as we get a whiff of a fresh dish leaving the kitchen at Diar il-Bniet.

After Sunday mass, our family would gather expectantly at our grandmother’s house and readily absorb all her cooking techniques before sitting at table together.

Who We Are

Our humble beginnings are at the core of our restaurant concept, making us the perfect place to eat traditional cuisine in Malta. Diar il-Bniet is loyal to the family’s origins and heavily inspired by the teachings of our grandmother, Manan. The cuisine we provide at our eatery is nothing short of a family legacy, one we wish our clients to experience through every sense.


What is our Passion?

Diar il-Bniet prides itself on its use of home-grown produce, freshly picked from the family-run farm roughly 200 meters away. Their estate consists of over 600 acres of land covered in rich, dark, soil which is religiously ploughed and cultivated. This soil is home to a number of different fruits and vegetables which are grown according to the season. Learn more about our restaurant.
