The restaurant is very busy, so better reserve your table in advance. We had a great dinner at Ta' Kris. The service was very good, the waitresses are friendly and the food, even with the restaurant full, came very fast. We noticed that all dishes come in large portions and it's delicious. We recommend the Ossobucco, which was not in... More

Whilst the food was to a very high standard. We felt unable to enjoy it fully, as the restaurant was rather busy and chaotic and we felt quite rushed between courses. That's said, will give it another chance but at a quieter sitting. Steph and Steve U.K.

We managed to get a table for two without booking but this popular restaurant was packed at Sunday lunchtime so I recommend booking. The staff were friendly and Gage detailed information about the dishes. We had traditional Maltese food and were not disappointed. Highly recommended.

It would be fair to say that this is not haut cuisine but nor do they want it to be. Rather this is honest, well prepared food served by people with a passion for what they do and a wish to convey this to the clients. The portions were vast! In fact, even those of us with hearty appetites failed... More

In Ta'Kris restaurant are served delicious meals. Restaurant is located in one of the corner streets in Sliema but it is really good restaurant. Writers are nice and they treat you well.

This place was packed out, located in a tiny lane perhaps 100m from the waterfront. The restaurant has some out door seating in the narrow lane and lots of seating inside, with big doors opening up to the laneway. The space inside is nice, seating in the lane was pretty cramped with people lined up for tables getting in the... More

Visited this lovely family restaurant for second year running during our annual little weekend away. Really fabulous food. Very friendly and a real find. Lots of Maltese eat here which is great but tourists still more than welcome. Please visit here and enjoy

Quiet and pleasant restaurant. The Maltese platter for two was a great experience in tasting authentic local food. The stuffed chicken was delicious. A bottle of local red wine was surprisingly cheap and great value for money, however modest. I think we got a shift change, so the personal was a little stressed, and therefore the service could have been... More
