A really nice traditional restaurant (this is its 15th year). Formally an old bakery, you can still see the oven and wooden tools used in the baking process hanging on the walls and ceiling. A very popular place to eat, it is really worth booking if you want to eat between 6 and 8 pm. The food was all fresh... More

Enjoyed a delicious meal at Ta'Kris which is located down an unassuming alleyway. Recommend booking to ensure a table, many people turned away on the evening of our visit. Generous portions of tasty Maltese food, good drinks selection and friends service.

Always eat here when in Malta. Took friends this time and they were equally enamoured. Superb service and local food, suggest booking for dinner as very busy.

One of my favorite restaurants in Sliema. Genuine food , nice staff , but menu mostly limited to traditional food (it is marketed as a traditional Maltese restaurant after all)

Make sure you book, otherwise go late, like after 9.30pm and then you are bound to get a table! The food was delicious and the staff were lovely! Great place to have a meal and enjoy so local dishes! Would definitely go back!

What a wonderful resturant for a relaxing meal, even though it is up a few steps the staff went out of their way to help my mother who is in a wheelchair. Once we were in they couldn't do enough for us, very attentive throughout. As for the food... excelent simply the best we had during our week long visit... More

We ate here twice while on a week's holiday in Malta. Wonderful local food and great service. Can't recommend enough... especially the rabbit and octopus.

Too bad this local restaurant is going down by its own success. We could only make reservations, it was too busy (even on a monday night). We did not know that there was a time-limit to our stay, but we felt very rushed. Not fun when you are celebrating... All the time (we were sitting next to the door) there... More
