I had a very delicious rabbit stew at this restaurant. It was so tasty. The bonus about this place was how attentive the wait staff were. It had a real homely family feel about it.

We had been recommended this restaurant so came with high hopes for delicious traditional maltese food, unfortunately this was not what we received. The staff welcomed us nicely but always seemed to be flustered and in a rush. Having already experienced maltese portions we decided to share a main course of octopus stew. The octopus was tough and hard to... More

Thank you for your Review. Myself & the staff are never happy to learn some one was disappointed from trip advisor. As far as I know we did not have a complain on octopus for ages. If you complained to your waiter or my self that your octopus was not to your likening we would have changed to another sauce... More

Friendly people and nice food. Only one small thing: the terrace is next to the loud traffic. This was no issue to me since you get a view of the ocean in return.

The food is the best and there are so many dishes on the menu to choose from. I certainly will be returning on my next visit to Malta as this is a restaurant not to be... More

On my recent trip to Malta I had the pleasure of dining with some friends at Ta'Kolina in Sliema, near Balutta Bay. Its not a fancy place, but its homey and family oriented...a perfect casual place to eat with a group of friends. The service is warm, friendly and very professional. The food is very good and you can sample... More

Saw this one day, looked appealing popped in on a whim. Lucky to be seated on a small terrace table, big enough for 2, first come first serve basis. Lovely views. Excellent service, good choices on set menu & across all menu. Manager or owner was very joyful & made an effort to speak to everyone. Generous portions, tasty, good... More

We wanted to taste some local food, so gave this a try. Sooo glad we did! The food was plentiful, well prevented & very, very tasty. The service wonderful, & we were made to feel part of a family rather than mere visitors! Great value for money & such a lovey place, that we went back again for our final... More
