the Maltese plate, a good option to try local specialties

A very good culinary experience. We've tried the Maltese plate, a mix of local specialties. The dish size is huge, and you can easily eat 2 persons from one portion. The restaurant is nice, seems to be a family run restaurant. Prices are OK.

If you want to have a maltese culinary experience, this is the right place. Rabbit stew but also fish were excellent. The starters were delicious and the pleasure of chatting with manager and finding out more about maltese culture.

We really enjoyed the peppered steak (finally a place where we got a real tender cut) and lampuki. Luckily we had the chance to eat here for a second time and the food was excellent the both times.

My wife and I went on the 2nd of august. I have read the comments that some people have put on. We have been here a few times I have friends that have been a few times. This is a brilliant restaurant and wonderful food. I have never been disappointed with the service or the food.

It's the kind of place that offer an eclectic menu with some local dishes. I think they change the table cloth once a week - we saw them turn over the same dirty thing over and over. The fish soup was one of the best we had on the island.

Nice restaurant on seafront with good set menu (as well as a la carte) at reasonable prices. Free local bean dip as pre-appetiser. However there are better around in Sleim.

Visited this gem only once while here and that was a big mistake. Ta' Kolina is one of the oldest and most authentic restaurants in Malta. They will start you off with some gratuitous bread and bean dip, but only a little so you don't fill up. Ordered a bottle of Rose made specially for Ta'Kolina and enjoyed it very... More

This place has a charm about it that draws you inside and then the interior design is well done with Stone blocks and wood. The wait staff is super accommodating even with a toddler constantly throwing bread on the floor. The Menu set up is very different then I was used to you. They have "Set" Menu's which at first...
