I went here with my cousins and my friend on a recent trip to Malta. One of my cousins lives just around the corner from it and recommended it for an authentic Maltese experience.

On a holiday to Malta with a friend, we met up with some of her cousins, who recommended that we dine at this restaurant. They were not wrong. We had a sharing platter for starter. This comprised bread baked by the owner, chef, waiter, Maltese sausage, olives, tomatoes, begilla and much more. The choices of mains were limited as this... More

Delicious, genuine, Maltese cuisine in a small, friendly and extremely relaxing atmosphere. Have not had such exquisite Maltese dishes since a long time. Extremely recommended.

Tasty, genuine food, big portions and a very generous platter is served free of charge prior to the main course.

It was a very disappointing experience after hearing a lot of good reviews from others. First of all it s not something to praise that a restaurant is a one man job cause it cannot be done! The main courses where not served together! It is also actually not ethical and not hygienically professional. Secondly when it came to the... More

The food at Ta Bertu is simple and very tasty. The menu is very limited this is due to the fact that Bertu has no fixed menu and he varies according to what he buys in the morning. Probably this is the trick to have such good, fresh food, ok besides his cooking skills. I think if you are up... More

Small but Cosy. So you need to book ! Never Disappointed every time I have been For traditional Maltese Rabbit Dish among the best in Malta. Good Place for Steak too ! For "big eaters" try the starter platter a variety of local specialties - but a word of warning leave some space for the main course.

From the outside it looks like a small terraced house but inside it feels very warm and welcoming just like the owner, Albert. He is a one man band, he's the chef, waiter, barman and bottle washer and he does a fantastic job. The restaurant seats about 24 people and has a limited menu but the food is top quality... More

We found Ta Bertu about half way through our 10 day holiday in St Paul's Bay and ate in it for the rest of the holiday. Don't be put off by the building work going on around it as the restaurant is clean and warm. It is just the right size to make you feel special and not one of... More

We were greeted immediately and sat down, quickly asked if we would like a drink and the drinks menu was presented to us. We were given a sufficient amount of time before making our choice. The menu was then explained to us, very simple - 4 choices of starters and mains and we were left to choose. 5 minutes later... More
