Great atmosphere, average food

The staff was extremely kind and the atmosphere in the restaurant is very special and quiet. The menu is pretty rich. We ordered rabbit stew and fresh local fish. both were ok, no more than that. The house wine - rose was nice.

This restaurant is cosy, but has very small tables, especially when dining with 3 or more persons. The food I would classify as average. My medium fillet steak had to go back to the kitchen, because it was rare. My colleague's sea bass was rather small. Overal an average score for Ta Kolina

The evening we arrived in Malta, we walked down the street from our hotel in Sliema to Ta'Kolina for dinner. The servers were kind and gracious and explained everything to us when we asked. The food was de-li-cious! It was so good, we reserved Ta'Kolina for our last dinner before leaving the island. Try to get the Aljotta (fish soup)... More

I stopped by for dinner here, enticed by their Maltese dishes. There was no one in the restaurant when I walked in so of course I was seated and tended to immediately. The waitress was nice enough. I ordered the Lampuki in Caper Sauce and it was really tasty! It came with steamed vegetables and potatoes and they also give... More

You can find a lot of Maltese specialities in the menu but not only, so everybody could find something tempting in the menu. We went mainly for fish and seafood dishies and everything was fresh and tasty.  We decided to try the wine from  Gozo and it was perfect for the food we had. The service was good and the... More

Visited this restaurant last Saturday evening. Service very friendly and professional. Free nibbles to start with. My wife and daughter had the Maltese chicken dish accompanied with traditional cooked potatoes and vegetables. I had the rib eye steak cooked to perfection which was accompanied with pepper sauce and vegetables. All washed down with a fantastic house wine. All of this... More

We dropped in here while wandering around looking for somewhere to have dinner. The exterior is not particularly exciting, but the interior is quite pleasant. Service was efficient but not overbearing. We opted to share a Maltese Platter as a starter. We were a little disappointed not to be offered bread with the starter, and after we requested some, we...
