Don't miss Ta' Kris!

This is not to be missed... recommended and frequented by the Maltese. Very reasonable food, well cooked with service to match!

Not only is the food of good quality but go in hungry as the quantities are very generous. It's no wonder the Maltese take so long over their meals. Very friendly service and the interior has a homely feel to it. If you are thinking of going at a busy time then make sure you book in advance. All in... More

On our first night, not yet armed with the knowledge from Trip Advisor, we came upon this enchanting place quite by chance, tucked down a side alley off the Triq Bisazza. It was a Sunday night fairly early on and we were able to secure a table easy enough. The decor was simple and rustic and the lighting dim and... More

Ta'Kris restaurant in Sliema, A marvellous restaurant hidden in a small street from a big commercial street next to the boulevard of Sliema. Arriving without a reservation is a big mistake. We have been lucky to get in without a reservation at 19h30... After us everybody was refused due they are fully booked middle in the week! We were 4... More

The original oven is still there, though not used, these days. It was... More

Went for an anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. Good, flavourful Maltese food. Portion sizes were enormous so our only challenge was to eat enough of each dish so as to not offend the chef with the amount we had to leave! Travellers from London may be confused by the wine list, as to whether any wines are available by... More

Ate here over the Christmas and nice to see the food and atmosphere was just as good as our last visit around 3 years ago.... Friendly attentive staff and warm atmosphere, sometimes a little stuffy and feel they could expand to give a bit more room between the tables - will definately go again for a nice Maltese experience

The restaurant was packed when we got there - definitely recommend booking in advance to secure a table. Food was delicious and okay for the price - especially the Salad dishes, which were huge. One downside was they don't serve water for free and will charge you to have tiny bottles of water!

We were recommended by some locals to eat at Ta Kris and were not disappointed. Excellent service, food and wine was superb, recommended by waiter at lower end of price range. Four of us had different dishes all excellent. Lovely old style atmosphere. My husband strongly recommends the rabbit, while the seafood pasta was full of seafood which cannot be... More
