Great Food

Wanted to taste good Maltese food and you get it at this restaurant. It is very popular and it would be wise to book before you go. We managed to get a table on the night and was served by different waiter/waitress, the food was great and you got a lot. So much you could not eat it all. Offered... read more

Very characteristic restaurant in the heart of Sliema, very crowded. We didn't have a reservation but they found a place for us just in front of the entrance (on a narrow alley). Quite confused staff but delicious food, the rabbit was awesome; big portions.

The food was great and tasty, The location is cozy and authentic, but the service needs to improve drastically! ...When we arrived we didn't know who to go to, as the waitress who were supposed to greet us hided behind a pillar between the two doorways. We were given a shaky table and even though they promised to bring wedges... More

Went to the Ta Kris after reading reviews. Was able to get a table with reservation and was looking forward to a better than average meal. We both had pumpkin and Melon soup to start which was very good For main courses, I had a chicken dish stuffed with spinach which was good despite being drowned in cream sauce. My... More

After searching for a traditional maltese restaurant in Sliema for 2 days, Ta'Kris was recommended and we were not disappointed. We arrived just in time as soon after we were seated the restaurant was full. The service was so friendly the menu was explained clearly and when our meals arrived they were described again. We ordered the maltese platter and... More

Came to my attention purely for the name at first then read the reviews, a short walk from our hotel this was a perfect first evening meal in Sliema, gorgeous authentic Maltese food cooked to perfection, friendly and prompt service and just a lovely feel about the whole place, would recommend to anyone

We found this place a bit by chance and wow, we certainly got lucky. Really pleasant restaurant serving traditional Maltese cuisine. Why would you go to Malta to eat in McDonald's or Burger King when you have places like this? We selected the starter size meals for our lunch as we have experienced Maltese generous food portions before. This was... More

The best dinner I had during my vacation on Malta was at Ta' Kris Restaurant. The restaurant offers great value for money and both the Maltese rabbit and the Maltese stew are fantastic. I highly recommend a visit to Ta' Kris!
