Who doesn’t love food? With the number of restaurants we have on our tiny little islands, we are spoilt for choice with the sheer number of food options and different cuisines to sample. Although international foods are available at a variety of different establishments across Malta, one cannot help but return to the food that was part of their childhood. During childhood, most Maltese children remember their grandmother and mother’s wholesome dishes. These traditional Maltese dishes were made with simple but fresh ingredients, and offered a delicious and filling meal that everyone enjoys. Traditional Maltese food has since become a staple cuisine adored by most locals and even foreigners. If you are looking to experience authentic and genuine Maltese food like your grandmother used to make it, only one place should come to mind: Ta’ Kris Restaurant and Maltese Bistro.
Our humble restaurant is situated in Sliema, housed instead of what used to be one of the oldest bakeries in this resort town. The bakery’s rustic charm was preserved, adding to our restaurant’s homage to everything Maltese, with traditional Maltese tiles, antique furniture and warm colours. Our menu is inspired by classic Maltese cuisine, complemented with strong influences from other flavours around the Mediterranean. At our restaurant, one can find hearty dishes such as snails cooked in a traditional stew, bragoli, octopus stew, rabbit, baked lamb, balbuljata, beef in broth, baked pork, fresh fish and much more. To compliment your meal we also have a variety of delicious home-made desserts which are guaranteed to make your mouth water. To keep the experience more traditional we also make it a point to serve local produce including delicious Maltese bread, Cisk beer, local wines and water, Kinnie, a variety of local liquors and pungent Maltese coffee.
Before heading to our restaurant, we recommend that you make a reservation to avoid disappointment. For any other questions, you ware also welcome to give us a call. Experience the authentic flavours of traditional Maltese cuisine.
