Ta’ Marija Restaurant

“A must visit for all foreigners and locals alike, getting to experience a truly traditional take on a Maltese meal, especially when there is live music and dancing".

Ta’ Marija is best summed up in one word — legacy. It is the legacy of Marija Muscat, who stood for everything that is good about the hospitality industry. The warm ambience, great service and delicious, traditional dishes represent Marija’s tireless work in bringing joy to anyone she connected with. While Marija is no longer physically present, her vibrant personality and passion for service are still as strong as ever at Ta’ Marija Restaurant, making it a masterclass in the true old-fashioned Maltese hospitality that so many have sadly forgotten.

Every dish at Ta’ Marija is hearty, genuine, and exploding with flavour. Warm Maltese bread and olive oil open up the palate. Many of the starters can be shared to sample the fantastic variety on offer. The signature arancini with Maltese Pecorino and local spicy sausage, and the traditional farmhouse snails in aljoli dip are two favourites. From the mains, the slow-cooked lamb shank is delightful. Rabbit dishes get a well- deserved centre stage, prepared using different techniques. Pick your favourite or try them all as a platter. Conclude with a refreshing trifle or one of the other tasty homemade desserts on offer. For the full Ta’ Marija experience, the weekly Folklore Dinner shouldn’t be missed, and booking well in advance is a must.
