I'd heard lots of positive comments about Ta' Bertu, and finally managed to get there myself. I was there with some old colleagues, many who had raved about the place. They were definitely not wrong! Albert, the owner, started off the evening by presenting us with a hhge dish of , local specialities, peppered goats cheese, olives, bigilla (a local bean paste), sundried tomatoes, caponata, and the freshest crunchiest bread ever to help us munch our way through.
I had to resist pigging out on this coz I wanted to leave space for my starter & main, yeah, this was not even the first course! I had the spaghetti with rabbit sauce to 'start' followed by rabbit for my main course. Needless to say, tne spaghetti was ample, sauce had lots of meaty rabbit, as it should. Then on for our main, huge bowls of portioned fried rabbit were brought to our tables (we were about 20 pax!) along with dishes of baked potatoes and bowls of chips. The rabbit was so tender the meat was falling off the bone, so juicy & tasty. Considering we took over the whole place, yes, Ta' Bertu's is small, service was fine, a young waiter and Albert himself coped admirably. A few opted for chicken or pork belly as opposed to the more popular rabbit dish, and again, there wasn't an empty plate to be seen at the end of a fabulous evening.
This tiny restaurant in the heart of St Paul's Bay has no view, no fancy decor but boy does the food make up for it! Pricing seems to be pretty reasonable too, all we paid was €30 a head which included all the above plus enough water & Italian wine to wash it all down with. I'll definitely be going back & if you're thinking about it, just go! You won't regret it.
