Welcomed and seated promptly. The Irish waitress explained the menu fully. Restaurant was clean and intimate. Food was superb. Cost was modest for the food and wine we had. I do not understand the negative comments at all

We were recommended by the bar man in our hotel. The place is dismal, the staff are far from friendly and the food we were served was mediocre to say the least. A trio of fish was served only tepid on a bed of sloppy veg. My friends steak was full of gristle and cold. The potatoes and veg served... More

We arrived with no booking but the staff, in the very best of ways, made us welcome and created a good space for us. We found the food so very good, the Maltese wine recommended complimented the food and the whole experience made it an excellent evening. We would recommend you book but do give it a try if needed.... More

Rather than have lunch on the seafront we thought to look for a characterful restaurant in a quieter area. We saw Ta Kris up an alleyway off the main street and decided to give it a go. The interior was gloomy and the welcome wasn't exactly warm - a rather brusque "Have you reserved a table?" from the Irish waitress.... More

The atmosphere, staff and menu are excellent. The menu is explain to you from a member of the staff very slowly and fully explained. Cheers to the chef for ex cent choice offered and for the immaculate presentation. Kris's restaurant is one of our preferred restaurants. Well done.

We had dinner at Ta Kris last Friday and the restaurant was, as usual, very busy. Definitely necessary to book. Friendly staff, good atmosphere. We had the fresh fish which was Dott (stone bass). The fish was served filleted and we did not find one single bone, it was beautifully cooked & well presented, vegetables also cooked to perfection &... More

We chose the spot because we followed tripadvisor. It's a nice, hidden place, perhaps a bit gloomy inside, because of the dark, heavy furniture and dark wood-panelling on the walls. We waited for some minutes before being given a table and the waiters seemed quite disgruntled with our presence. We ordered two pastas, the one with broccoli was excellent, aubergine&tomato...

We visited this based on the reviews here. The starters of local dips with bread was good but my spaghetti with octopus was a let down as I only had about 7 small bits of octopus. There was a huge serving of spaghetti and tomato sauce was very little actual octopus. The rabbit spaghetti that my husband had was okay... More

Excellent soup of the day (cabbage and pineapple), unusually food combinations, but must say it excited my taste buds. As mains had the tagliatelle which was excellent too. Will definitely recommend:)

Just had what was probably the nicest meal I have had in Malta so far. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. I almost wish the portions were not quite as big as they are but I had space for a lovely desert! Cannot fault this restaurant, its lovely.
