2014 opened to the public.


il-Barri Restaurant is a normal restaurant, it is not an underground restaurant. It is listed because it has a World War II shelter below, which is open to the public. It is one of the largest underground locations of its kind in Malta, nevertheless it was dug entirely by hand. The shelter is entered through the restaurant, but it is open only in the morning, probably to reduce disturbance to restaurant guests.
