Ta' Kris Restaurant

Local Maltese cuisine restaurant in Sliema

Maltese Casual Dining

Ta' Kris is situated in a quiet alley just off Sliema's busy Bisazza Street and a minute's walk from the seafront promenade. A lovely haven to taste home-made local cooking... a firm favourite with locals too.

Ta' Kris is a Maltese restaurant hidden away in an alley just off Malta's most sought after retail space in Sliema. In such a cosmopolitan area with high-street brands and so many cafés selling quick snacks in a mad world, it is refreshing to find Ta' Kris' bistro humbly nestled in a side-street serving typical Maltese dishes in a homely fashion and rustic surroundings.

Built out of a former bakery, Ta' Kris is unassuming but very much inviting with the bakery oven still in place giving an evocative touch to the place. The menu seems to come straight out of mum's kitchen with home-made beef stew, home-made fresh soup, rabbit, stuffed slices of beef (braggioli) - house speciality, sea bass (spnot) and more. There are also a number of Italian and Mediterranean dishes, such as pastas and fillets, which help to give the menu a more complete variety.

Being close to many offices and retail outlets, Ta' Kris is a busy diner and well worth booking in advance. It is open daily for lunch and dinner. Ask for the daily specials!

Opening Times:
Daily - 12:30 to 23:00
(closed on Sunday afternoons from July to September).

What customers say about Ta' Kris restaurant:

'Absolutely amazing food!! Service is great, they really know how to cater to tourists and will gladly explain the local dishes. Their fish of the day and rabbit are two mouthwatering dishes and worth a try!'

'Best fish I ate in Malta. The grilled sword fish was simply amazing. The octopus salad was also great! Fair price. Highly recommend!'

'Ta Kris is delightful. Traditional Maltese food at a reasonable price. It would be easy to miss this gem as it is situated down an ally in the main shopping street in Sliema, but the effort is worth it. Staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is wonderful.'
