This restaurant is an excellent example of Maltese and Meditarranean quisine. the food is fantastic and reasonably priced and the service was excellent with a very knowledgeable owner. Great selection of wines including a large number of local Maltese wines. A must for all food lovers.

“Saturday dinner romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

The place is very cosy situated in the heart of sliema. The menu has a good section but it specialises in maltese food which is very good. The stuff is excellent and very helpful. we had maltese pasta as a starter and then as main course we had rib eye steak and lamb bridge was which was cooked to perfection. The spices made themeat very tasty. Prices are very reasonable compared the quality of food do you get. Aplace to visit for typical maltese food and more.

“One of the better restaurants in Sliema”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

There are a lot of restaurants along the water across from the ferry that are a bit touristy, and there is a certain sameness to them. Not at Ta kris. I started with stuffed mushrooms, which I believe was a special. For the main course I had bragioli and my son had the beef stew. The sauce on the bragioli was a bit sweet for my taste, but the meat itself was excellent. I got a recommendation on the wine (get the local wines!) and enjoyed this a lot. Service was attentive, decor and setting were very nice, like an old rustic farmhouse and dim lighting. Put this high on your list as a place to try in Sliema.

“Sensational, on many levels,Real Maltese Food, For the Lucky Few !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

For Once Tripadvisor was "Bang on"
We Tripped over this place by accident, But the place was "Heaving", The busiest restaurant we had come across in the whole of Malta,,,, easily, Plus outside were a couple of regular locals , Who get take aways when busy, And could not stop drooling about the food!
So we booked for next day ( Recommended ) Then went back to Hotel and read a few reveiws
On arrival ,,, Looking around, it looked like a feeding place for Sumo wrestlers ! The portions were huge, so we shared a super Fish soup, Had a bottle of the house red , Which goes down as the best red for the money, i have ever had in a restaurant !.
For mains we had Barracuda, Monster size, and superb, plus i had
Dad's Famous Braggioli. Traditional Maltese slices of Beef stuffed with Force Meat & slowly cooked in a red wine, tomato & herb sauce
Which would have fed two!, Brilliant, so much flavour.
Sad thing is, we were stuffed by this stage, so declined desert,,, even though only 3.50 euro's!
Which i found difficult, as hate to miss a bargain .
This was our last meal on Malta, And the Best,, Please Book ahead, It will be full on the night

“A lovely little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

My husband and I ate here three times while we were staying on Malta. This is a friendly, cosy, family run establishment specialising in Maltese cuisine. The food is really good, as are the prices, the service excellent, with very friendly staff. You have to book because it is very popular but this is one not to miss if you are in Sliema.
