tommytao when you are in thr airport waiting on your bag Malta tourism has an office there you can pick up the Event mag with whats on you can also get maps etc all free and for your room pick up what bottles you drink at the shop in airport vodka etc is cheaper there.You can get the number 8 bus to Valetta and then you can pick up several buses to Sliema or arrange with someone like Maltatransfer.com for pick up in airport and transfer to hotel works out at €7 each way per person.

If you are at the Palace you are pretty near to Ta' Kris restaurant in Fawwara Lane just off Bisazza Street. It serves local food and is very good - locals eat here but it is usually busy so you will have to book. Google Ta' Kris as they do have a website and you'll find a sample menu if you are interested. We go there at least once on every visit.

There are lots of lovely restauarants in the area, you will be spoilt for choice. Have a lovely holiday

Ta Kris is in the alley round from the Pizza hut in Bisazza street , which is now a pedestrian area .

Ta Kolina is another good restaurant for local food , its on Tower Road just past the playing field near the tower ,on the opposite side of the road

Enjoy your stay
