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

The moment you enter Ta' Bertu, you feel you are in a great place. Although it is small, you can sense the great feeling of a warm welcome by Albert. He explains to you what is on the menu and it is always a speciality. I had Ravioli with pecorino and the tomato sauce and mozarella were just great !!... More

Enjoyed a relaxed dinner here with my wife. On the down side the wine list was very limited and lots were out of stock. Waiter was very friendly though. Food was good and we loved the complementary Maltese antipasto with warm ftira to start. My steak was cooked to perfection. Choice is a bit limited which could be improved but... More

Excellence is defined at Ta Bertu and is where the bench mark, upon which all restaurants should be compared, is set. The narrow little restaurant is wedged into a quiet little street like a diamond awaiting discovery. The ingredients are clearly of an utmost quality, the food seasoned and flavoured to perfect harmony and all for a most modest price.... More

We absolutely love going to Ta Bertu restaurant. The food is excellent, first class. Albert the owner is an excellent chef, he comes and explains the days menu ( it varies depending on what is in season) there is plenty to choose from, in fact it is hard deciding which to pick because they are all superb. I can guarantee... More

Nice atmospher, good food and friendly owner. What else can you ask for. I like how the cook and waiter look like each other, Fula maqsuma! Nice to have the same person cook and serve, you get all the attention. Can't wait to go back.
