Delicious Maltese food with a cozy, relaxed atmosphere. Book ahead (maximum capacity 35 people). Definitely recommended!

The risotto starter was perfect and while the calamari wasn't all that filling, it was great as well.

When you're new to a city it can be difficult to find a restaurant that ticks all the boxes for that perfect evening; great location/beautiful view, relaxed ambience, well-paced & friendly service, great value, confidence in cleanliness & food hygiene & most of all, delicious food & drink selection. Every restaurant has its good & bad days, difficult & pleasant... More

Pretty Restaurant with a sign outside 'Slow Food'. The menu was written on the blackboard and sounded promising. The Seabass was very tender but the Salsa Verde had not much taste. The Vegtables that where served with the dish where nice but lacked seasoning. The Risotto was over cooked. Not freshly made, was probably on the stove too long. Lemon... More

Had fantastic meal here whilst on business in Malta. Cosy place with tables also outside. Menu short but every dish cooked to perfection. Go you won't be disappointed. Lovely bottle of Maltese Merlot as well.

Three friends had three different starters and three different main courses - mine being chicken livers, avocado and salad, followed by deboned stuffed quail and walnuts in what I can only think was a red wine jus. It was one of the best meals I've ever had. Friends thought they hadn't had such good food in a very long time.... More

It was quiet when we arrived. No menu outside so many potential customers left without finding the blackboard inside. Due to dining in Ta'Kris the previous evening, we were cautious about the portion sizes and decided on caramelised rabbit livers with melon salad as starters, followed by chocolate and coffee pudding and creme caramel. Quality of food was excellent. Couldn't... More

Chris, the owner and chef is very talented. There is no set menu; every morning, depending on the availability of ingredients, Chis writes up the menu for the day on a blackboard. We have had some excellent lunches and dinners here. The homemade pasta dishes are delicious and the panna cotta perfect (taste and texture).

We booked a table for two and they gave us a lovely table with a candle. The restaurant is so cosy and warm. We only took a main course but saw the starters and looked amazing. I had the vitella milanese which was to die for, and my boyfriend had the pork belly which was lovely! We had house wine... More

I had lunch in this wonderful restaurant with my friends. The place has a nice atmosphere. They don't have a set menu - the food you can order is written on blackboards on the walls. Everything is fresh and really tasty. We had salmon with asparagus and calamari. They were as delicious as the side dish of baked potatoes and... More
