This restaurant was recommended to me by the night receptionist at Bayview Hotel & Apartments after I complained to him that I had trouble finding a decent restaurant that served traditional Maltese food. I was given directions to Ta' Kris Restaurant and found that a table had already been reserved for me! The restaurant was located in a small lane... More

We took a trio dip as starters and was good,as main course my friend choosed lamb (which was after all a good choice )... More

Ta'Kris is way overated, it is only on the level of a decent pub here in England. As it has had good reviews I had their rabbit dish. It was OK, nothing to write home about, I have had better and far far more tender rabbit in pubs here. My wife ordered the Seafood Rice, it was so dry and... More

This is an established restaurant, slightly off the main thoroughfare, but very popular. Very welcoming place and the food is wholesome and good. Mainly Maltese traditional food, but not only.

This is a restaurant that serves typical and genuine Maltese food in a lovely setup and ambience in a Sliema alley. Between us we had a lovely soup of the day, fries goat cheese, roast lamb, stuffed meat (bragioli) as well as pasta... More

We've been going to Malta 5 times n the last 7 years - every time we make an effort to go to Ta'Kris for dinner. The food is always great and the service excellent. I can recommend the Lamb (if they have it on the menu) and the fish soup - but really...I haven't had one bad thing there. It's... More

Don't let the location fool you! Ta'Kris is situated among a bunch of fast food restaurants, but it's not even close to it's neighbors. The menu is rather small, but amazing. If you are on the hunt for some great local cuisine, this is a place for you. Great and I mean GREAT food, friendly staff and even nice authenic... More

How nice is this one........we were so happy to have found this little place nestled up a side street. How lucky were we when we found this place. The hospitality was most welcoming, staff and service on the ball, decor rustic and the food was marvellous. True Maltese food at reasonable prices.

Thank johjoyce
