We really enjoyed a lovely and relaxing dinner at Tal Kaptan Waterfront. Staff was very nice and friendly. We were given a lovely table by the edge. Food was delicious, mainly the selection of appetizers (zalzett tal-Malti, Bigilla, Bruschetta, Tadam Imqadded u Ġbejniet). Pizza or Pumpkin and Porcini risotto must be a choice. Very good portion size and value for... More

This restaurant has a great pizza! We loved the atmosphere and staff was very nice. I'm gluten intolerant and when I asked the waiter what was available gluten free, he explained how the pasta is available but the pizza isn't due to a risk of contamination (really appreciated how seriously they take this). I took the risotto and my husband... More

We took a wander down to The Waterfront one lunchtime to see what it had to offer. There are many restaurants along the harbour side and we were very glad that we chose to eat here. It wasn't particularly busy (it was the end of the summer season) and we sat outside enjoying the sunshine and the view of a... More

Visited the restaurant on a Friday and it was busy and full waited quite long for the food but in the end it was good so make sure that if you visit Tal-Kaptan on a weekend you are not in a hurry....... visited again in the weekdays and the food was quite prompt and service was superb.

if you want to wait ages for your food, find walnut shells that break your teeth and have ridiculously sized serving amounts i highly recommend this restaurant. what is amusing is the stuck up manager who keeps blaming his staff and not himself for all these shortcomings. complete crap - avoid.

My husband and myself enjoyed eating out at Tal-Kaptan Pizzeria. My husband said the pizza was excellent and for myself the meat was to my liking and because I'm Ceoliac, I enjoyed eating chips from the restaurant as they cooked it in the oven for me which is a first. Thank you for the excellent service we had.

The glasses of our drinks were dirty and the food was not good. The pizzas were still undercooked and the waiter had to take them back. It was a busy night but we... More
