Every self-respecting gourmand who has ever set foot on the Maltese archipelago in the last forty years has dined at Ta’ Frenc and intends to return. This includes the keen palates from the Michelin Guide, who this year have awarded Ta’ Frenc with a well-deserved spotlight in their publication. Two of the rooms in this architectural gem are actual 17th century structures, with the rest reconstructed to faithfully replicate the design and ambience of the original. Fine linen with a generous thread count, and a taupe and old rose upholstery complement the natural beauty of the honey-coloured stone, while tasteful pieces of art contribute to Ta’ Frenc’s air of elegance.
The team at Ta’ Frenc boasts a stellar track record in the culinary industry. Cuisine ranges from the classical to the contemporary. Slow-cooked beef cheeks glazed in a rich red wine and beef jus reduction are a fantastic spin on a timeless classic, while the signature table-side steak Diane flambé is a must-have. Portion size allows for a full, multi-course journey without missing out on dessert. Crêpes Ta’ Frenċ cooked in sugar, orange, lemon juice, and Grand Marnier must be tried. Ta’ Frenc’s masterfully-curated wine list will excite even the most seasoned connoisseur with enticing vintages, including Super Tuscans and Boize Reserva.
