Our restaurant is situated in a beautifully refurbished 500 years old establishment that has withstood a considerable amount. The building has stood the test of time and kept standing after enduring the harsh weather conditions our island can present and ferocious air raids during the Second World War. These attacks ravaged the surrounding houses and harbour area, sparing the building as if by some inexplicable choice of fate.
One could say that the strength of the building reflects directly upon the characters of those who, with conviction and ambition, now carry it forward to this modern age. The stonework within the establishment has been impressively conserved with high ceilings and stone arc beams that are still intact to this day and add to the beauty that is our restaurant. Tas-Serena’s versatile style and location were also a source of inspiration for burlesque dancing back in the 1890s for which it was used. Later on down the line, in the 1950s, the establishment was used as a printing press. We deem it our core value to be unlike other cold establishments, instead we embrace as well as preserve the history of our restaurant and continue to add to the splendour and historical value that it retains.
What makes us stand out
Tas-Serena retains and magnifies the historical splendour that it always had. As soon as you walk into the restaurant you will find it provides warmth and a certain romantic atmosphere. You can enjoy your meal either inside the restaurant, benefitting from the welcoming atmosphere. Or you could choose to dine outside, with a view of the Marina, full of magnificent anchored yachts.
Crowning Tas-Serena’s glory is the magnificent terrace that looks over Fort Saint Angelo and the noble and historically-rich Three Cities which Sengela forms part of. You can easily feel enchanted by the almost surreal magic and calmness that the restaurant’s location abundantly offers. When it comes to our food we are inspired by Mediterranean generosity and passion, we want our tables to be crowded with family and friends and exceptional meals for all to enjoy. We work with the freshest of ingredients and anything that can realistically be made from scratch can be found here.
