Ta' Bertu is a small traditional Maltese restaurant run by the very sociable Albert, who is very special. He greets you on arrival and talks through the dishes he has on offer and will always adapt to your taste. Don't expect to be handed a menu although there is a specials board! Your order is kept in his head -... More

Cute little place, excellent food, a massive starter plate to share to start, really good traditional food . Small menu written on a board on the wall. Very... More

This is a lovely little restaurant situated in a quiet location at the western end of the main street in St Paul's Bay, which serves traditional Maltese food. The proprietor, Albert Fenech, is also the chef, waiter and barman - in fact, he appears to be the only employee! Despite being extremely busy at times, Albert is very friendly and... More

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. We were not disappointed! The man who runs it was courteous and was happy to listen to one of our party, who was very difficult, wanting... More

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.
