Been here a few times now, and they never disappoint. This is Maltese cousine at its best! There is always fully booked, so call in advance, it is worth a visit or five! They always present the specialties for the day, and explain them carefully. There is no fuss, you can dress up, or come right from the beach. The... More

As we were in Sliema for only one night, a Monday, we popped into the restaurant when we were passing by to check that it would be open in the evening and booked a table for 7.45p.m. When we arrived we were seated at the last vacant table and during the evening we saw several potential diners turned away. Although... More

This is good value for money and very good customer care. I would recommend this for anyone to go and eat here. The food is fresh and great portion sizes.

Friends who had been to Malta recommended Ta' Kris and they were right to do so. The welcome is warm and genuine. The place has a rustic charm and the food was divine. The waiter suggested a local red wine and it was very good. The price point was spot on and we would definately return

Visited twice during our stay for evening meal, booking is a must as this place gets very busy. The food is great and very reasonably priced. The portions are massive so bring a good appetite! Highly recommend the rabbit. Staff are friendly and like to please, even put a sparkler in my pudding and offered us a complimentary drink when... More

Really tasty food, I had octopus salad which was melt in the mouth, not rubbery at all. Others in our large group of 9 had Rabbit stew and other traditional Maltese dishes which all looked great. Most of us ordered the starter size for main course as the portions are very large. Free wifi available. Try the local wine too... More

I have been visiting Malta since 1983 on a regular basis and have tried many of the traditional restaurants. Ta Kris is by far one of the best. I met Maltese friends here (we do know Chris Cassar, the owner which is partly why we chose to eat at Ta Kris), for dinner and will definitely be back. The food... More

Cosy and friendly restaurant, the ideal venue for colder nights, where they serve abundant portions of local food, in a wide choice of dishes and proposals. Book in advance, because always crowded. Not to be missed!
