We stopped at Tapaz just for drinks after we had just arrived in Malta. We sat at the small and narrow outside seating area as it was a hot summer afternoon. We had a Royal Mojito and 2 fresh juices - orange and strawberry for 18.50 €. It took centuries till they brought our drinks, more than half an hour!... More

Visited this restaurant & bar twice. Once for a tapaz meal, and later in the week for the 'cocktail happy hour'. Food was excellent and very tasty. Lovely atmosphere to relax.

The rest of the meal was also perfect.... More

We were staying just down the road. Normally we would be wary of "Mediterranean Fusion" (Their words not mine) what does it mean?? Restaurant appeared busy with locals.Friendly greeting and shown to table. Restaurant has a nice relaxed atmosphere.

Normally I am wary of places with glossy plasticated menu but we were pleasantly surprised here. Small frontage, a few yards up the road from the Intercontinental, but quite deep inside. Besides the bar stools visible, there were comfortable tables and chairs towards the rear. Both my wife's ricotta and my baked pasta had plenty of flavour. Service attentive without... More

Location .. nice view of the street. The interior looks and feel very warm and comfy. I had a first time guest to visit the island and after a long haul flight.. though of something quick for lunch. Goes for the pork slider and smoked salmon salad to share accompanied by Sangria. Perfect for an overcast afternoon.
