Good choice of traditional Maltese dishes... and more!

Interested in Maltese cuisine? Ta'Kolina offers a very good choice of Maltese dishes, among them, Bragioli, Rabbit, Maltese platter, Lampuki and Swordfish with fresh tomatoes and capers. Very friendly service and good value. Try to book in advance, as it is very popular with groups of tourists.

I am not a big fan of steaks but I decided to try a piece of my partners. Ended up eating half of it. I had a swordfish and was soo fresh and juicy!

Restaurant was recommended to us. Extensive menu and good value set deals. Food cooked to order appetizing and filling. Attentive service. Would likewise recommend.

Visited November 2015. Better luck this time. As per our previous visit we knew what we mustn't order. In this occasion we were three people dinning. We went straight for the main course as we haven't had good experience from our previous visit. Rib eye, Saltimbocca and Fillet steak. All very good. Rib eye and fillet steak were medium rare...

We ate twice at this restaurant, it was lovely . You will not get a better steak anywhere in the world. You can try typical Maltese food or not . It is great and offers something for everyone.

Service not really friendly and food totally disappointing. Location cosy but overcrowded. Rabbit and bragioli definitely below our expectations.

Searching in Sliema for somewhere open on a Sunday evening, we popped down to Ta Kolina which was not only open but early evening for Malta. Very comprehensive menus were handed to us, a reasonable set menu and a vast choice of a La carte dishes. My starter was Octopus in garlic and main, Swordfish. The octopus was lovely and... More

Lovely food, friendly atmosphere, good value. We had the set menu which was very good value, unfortunately we didn't discover this restaurant until our last night, we would have returned otherwise.

We have visited this place many times over the years and it always surprises me that it isnt busier. The owner is a lovely man who always welcomes you. They have various set menus, the most expensive of which is 27 euros but that includes massive fillet steaks cooked to perfection. You can choose any starter from the alacarte menu... More

Excellent steak but everything else average. Desserts exceptionally poor. Trifle in a glass cup with a chunk of banana in it. Was noticably old as the custard was leathery and splitting. The creme caramel was dreadful; tasteless.
