If staying or heading to the north of the island, The Fortress is a great place to sit back and relax in good company, good wine and food on a lovely terrace overlooking Xemxija Bay. Also ideal for private events with various indoor/outdoor options.
The Fortress Wine and Dine is a wine bar with a difference. It is located right on the perimeter of the charming bay in Xemxija, a quieter town situated between St. Paul's Bay and Mellieha. The actual building is an original three hundred year old Fortress that was used as a Gun Battery. The result of its stylish revamp is an evocative venue full of modern character. A perfect example is how the original high vaulted ceilings can be appreciated from individually styled rooms with plush sofas and contemporary furnishings.
As beautiful as the interiors are, it is the ideal Maltese summer months that bring out the whole potential and charm of the Fortress Wine and Dine. A large terrace with comfortable seating overlooking the idylic bay is the perfect setting for a fine glass of wine with friends. You can also book your own private gazebo with a sofa bed!
The wine list is extensive with an assortment of over 170 varieties representing all the essential wine regions of the world. The complimenting food is as good as it is original. Creative platters consist of international delicacies such as sushi, chinese, indian, greek mezes, american combo and french cheeses.
The Fortress Wine and Dine is also the ideal place to organise private functions of any size. The private rooms with seperate music systems allow for full flexibility and the friendly staff will make sure to make your special event a successful one.
This is a truly refreshing alternative in Malta to chill out in great company.
