The waitress seemed very keen to push the specials. Possibly under instruction from the kitchen to use up those dishes. The Tuna fishcakes were three semicircular grey rubbery lumps. The beef special was substantial but overcooked, it laid on top of watery mashed potato, possibly there had been a salty accident in the kitchen area while the dish was being prepared. Perhaps I was just unlucky and the chef was absent, ill has recently left. They should give the waiting staff a holiday in January and February as it was not particularly busy and no one seemed particularly interested.
If I try Ta' Kris again I will make sure it is busy and avoid the specials.

Authentic service is not a compliment in Malta but the food was good. The Rustic pasta tasted like really home-made, the seafood salad was quite acceptable but nothing special. It is located in corridor off a small street not far from the Sliema promenade.

This delightful restaurant is tucked away up a narrow side street not far from the Plaza shopping centre. A definite 'must' for anyone wishing to try the local cuisine. Booking is advisable as even on a Monday night it can be full. Rabbit and Bragioli are highly recommended and the quantities are vast and served piping hot. Most guide books recommend this place and it is easy to see why. Go on give them a try.
