Set menu €27 euro. Mussels, sea food spaghetti, filet stark,sword fish specials, apple pie, Carmen muse two espressos and bottle of house wine chardonnay. Hmmm.... Mixed feelings. First, unwelcome staff girl cleaning table didn't say a word, waitress was rushing our meals so we could leave ASAP. Only middle age gentlemen put some effort to feel us better. Starters: mussels...

I have visited this restaurant several times over the last few years and must say I've not been disappointed. As well as an extensive alacarte menu, they offer three set menus the most expensive around £20 for three courses. You can choose any starter including mussels, pate, soup for example as well as fillet steaks, ribeye, prawns etc and a... More

We were there with a large group and everyone enjoyed their dinner. I had bragioli which was bursting with flavor and my husband enjoyed the braised beef--much like stew. The chicken cacciatore, rabbit and local fish also got enthusiastic reviews. Each course was good, including an excellent fish soup. Portions were large, service was efficient and cheerful, but best of... More

Ate here due to set menu and from outside always looked busy and pleasant. We were disappointed with the food found both the rabbit and chicken dry and my ravioli wasn't the best having tried same dish in several other restaurants. One redeeming feature was the pleasant waitress who took time with each customer to speak with after the meal.... More

Nothing has changed over the 22 years I have been going there. Local foods and wines are the big attraction at this lovely rustic restaurant. Most recently I... More

I went to Ta'Kolina as I wanted a traditional meal and it was quite close to my hotel. It was fairly busy so I was pleased to get a table. The food was average and the wine ok. Reasonable prices. I didn't feel particularly comfortable as a solo traveller and would say if you're in a group this us probably... More
