Ta' Marija Restaurant was first established by Benny and Marija Muscat in 1964 as the Whisper Knightclub and Farmhouse.
In those days the island was a base for
the British and Nato forces. Officers and crew of all ranks and
nationalities, as well as many personalities from the local and foreign
scene were regular guests to the 'in-place' for succulent steaks and
With the passage of time the island
became a wider holiday destination greeting visitors from all corners of
the world. The Muscat family felt the need to introduce genuine Maltese
cuisine and took the plunge to create Ta' Marija Restaurant in 1990.
Since then Ta' Marija has become the
foremost exponent of Maltese cuisine offering a combination of
traditional Maltese products, a platform for local artists' talent and
the renowned friendly Maltese hospitality forthcoming from the Muscat
family and their staff.
Ta' Marija Restaurant was awarded Best
Maltese Food Restaurant for nine consecutive years by the Definitive(ly)
Good Guide to Restaurants, sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism and
Culture, also a Quality Assured
Restaurant by MTA.
