nice place

Located at Sliema, just a street away from the sea, this Maltese restaurant offers good, tasty, traditional maltese dishes. There are only 5 outdoor tables because the terrace is small. (pity). Polite and professional staff will ensure you a pleasent moments in this restaurant.

My wife and I visited here after walking past and think how traditional it looks. It's a nice Maltese restaurant with a range of local foods. We received a warm welcome and had a great view from our table over the sea and Sliema promenade. We received a complimentary bean dip, crackers and bread - delicious! We both opted for... More

Looked like a family run restaurant. It was advertised on the Malta air magazine. I need to point out that I do not find particularly useful airlines magazines, but this one was an exceptional catch. Food was fresh and seemed to have just been cooked on the spot. As a bonus, the tiny terrace overlooks the seaside promenade. Check it... More

Ate here twice during our stay in Sliema. Had such a good meal, we went back again! Fillet steaks were amazing, really generous portion, cooked to perfection and very tasty. Atmosphere is really nice in the restaurant. Prices are very reasonable. Staff were very friendly and service was quick.

We choose this as recommended by Bernard from the Park Hotel. We were not disappointed. From the moment we entered we were treated so well. Everything at the right pace. Complimentary dish to start, we did not have to wait for our starter from the set menue. The rabbit was tender and cooked in wine, delicious. Enjoyed our dessert and... More

This appeared to be a sweet little place to eat on the coast road in Sliema. Menu was limited, and the food was just ok. Service was good though.

If you would like a traditional Maltese restaurant serving the local cuisine, this lovely place is the one. I was recommended to go by my sister, as her husbands Uncle Julian owns the restaurant. I must admit, I have never really had Maltese food and wanted to see what it looked like, so I checked online and read some reviews.... More

There are loads of cafe type bars in Sliema ,usually on or around the pavements, many with huge TV screens pumping out completely irrelevant and annoying cr**p, In a narrow space with like minded cr**p either side. Ta Kolina is a decent sized restaurant with traditional decor and smart attentive staff. We visited twice and found the service and the... More

Visited in October 2014. Warm welcome when entering but very disappointed with the food in this restaurant. We chose a set menu including a starter, main course, dessert, a bottle of local white wine and sparkling water. A nearby table with a Maltese couple got a free bigilla starter from the maître (No Maltese, no bigilla... terrible). Nothing special to... More

Thanks for your Review. This must be the second or 3rd in 2 years you wrote or asked some one to write about us .Funnily enough all very very similar. The only thing you did not mention is if you are a competitor or a sacked assistant cook who was employed by a competitor of ours. About all your complains... More
