Directions to Tat-Tarag Cafe and Wine Bar
Tat-Tarag occupies a great position in Rabat, one of the highest towns in Malta, with great views of the below countryside and villages. The bar is located in the centre of public steps (‘tarag’ in Maltese) leading to an old water spout which traditionally locals used for various needs. Tat-tarag is a charming place to meet up with friends for a good glass of wine together with some delicious accompanying food.
Tat-Tarag is the brainchild of Rudolf Grima, a local from Rabat. He fell in love with a place which was full of original features, had a great view and a spacious terrace to enjoy Malta’s fine Mediterranean climate. Rudolf realised that with some much needed renovation, the place could be converted into a winner. This is exactly what he got with a stylish interior – typical Maltese limestone walls adorned with modern paintings, intricately framed mirrors and a hanging centrepiece in the form of a chandelier made of elaborate Murano and Swarovski crystal.
The terrace, forming part of a traditional stairway, has been left in its original open state retaining its full potential to accommodate diners in a comfortable and spacious setting. The Tat-Tarag menu is mainly based on a variety of platters...be it typical local foods, an assortment of hams, cheeses or seafood. A soup and pasta of the day are also available, as well as quick snacks such as pies and ftiras (stuffed Maltese bread).
The wines available at Tat-Tarag are a good selection of local and international varieties representing a number of new and old world regions.
The differentiating factor of Tat-Tarag is its enviable position. Many converted wine bars of its type are usually situated in central, sometimes claustrophobic, old village cores making them unpractical especially in summer. This place has all the traditional features to make it a cosy hang-out in winter but also the advantage of a spacious terrace and great views to enjoy Malta’s pleasant summer evenings.
