Great little restaurant, hidden off the main road and up some steps - they do have an advertising board on the main street though. Can recommend this restaurant (more of a bistro really) as it serves excellent Maltese food and the service was good too. Once again the price was reasonable and it has a great atmosphere. I would recommend... More

Great food, great service with a varied menu. Came here three times during a five day stay we loved it so much. Extremely helpful and friendly staff who went out of their way to give good service.Bring a good appetite as the portions are not mean and try their puddings particularly the Casetella which is delicious. Cost- around 50 Euros... More

Ta' Kris is a hidden gem. Do not let the fact that it is in a lane fool you. The food is excellent, typical homemade dishes. The service is fast, efficient and so family like. Ta Kris was originally one of the oldest and largest bakeries in the Sliema area and most of the old features of the bakery have... More

We were a university group of 20 people, and Ta'Kris' service was warm, welcoming, and wonderful. The owner of the restaurant explained all of the options that were available on our set menu, the food all came out in a reasonable time, and they graciously accommodated for allergies/dietary restrictions. Every person's meal was delicious and the prices were on point.

Fantastic! Then we shared the Maltese plater...it was ok because as we said we wanted to try something local. Then we had a local... More

We arrived early on a Saturday night and we're lucky enough to be fitted in, but they said we must leave by 9 which was plenty of time to enjoy our meal. The couple who came behind us was unlucky and could not get in. The food and drink was reasonably priced and the food was excellent. I would definitely... More

We visited this restaurant, tucked away in a lane behind the seafront in Sliema, Malta, on two occasions in a four-day short break. The food was well cooked, some traditional Maltese dishes, but others from Italy and beyond. We loved it so much that we booked for a second time. The advice is to book each visit, because by 7.30...
