Talija Cafe, Bar Pizzeria and Restaurant opened its doors in May 2014, the realisation of a dream for its owners. We offer an a la carte menu at an affordable price, in cosy, friendly surroundings.Our chef is passionate about providing the best quality, seasonal foods and work to source as many local ingredients as possible.

They restaurant’s name originates form my late grandfather’s nickname – Ta’ Talija.

Tony Portelli was famous for his life in Xlendi. He had a small shop where he sold soft drinks, biscuits and other foods to people in the Xlendi area. Toni was famous for his fried rabbit and many Maltese regularly visited his house to dine. He also had a small number of goats at his fields on the right cliffs of Xlendi.


At Talija Bar, Pizzeria and Restaurant we are proud of the food that we serve and the service that we provide, and aim to offer our  customers a special dining experience each and every time that they visit. We hope to help create a memorable evening for each and every one of our guests, whether they are spending time with family, friends or loved ones.
