Respond to Review of Tate Cafe Bar
Review: Being a non vegetarian, TATE cafe in Malta is the first restaurant i have been to, had a wonderful dining experience and yet not realised that all i had was vegetarian! This place is truely recommended to all! I was on holiday with my wife and four other couples, this February 2009. My wife had arranged my birthday bash at TATE Restaurant. TATE is situated in this superb unique location in the Grand Harbour facing the super yachts. We later discovered that it is Maltas first and only pure vegetarian restaurant. The restaurant is certainly seemed a very trendy upmarket joint, owned by young vegetarian, indian lady. The service at TATE was prompt and first class. Despite it being a busy Thursday evening, our waiter took very good care of us. It was obvious this place was popular with young to middle aged who came for good food and wine.The place was buzz about it.. We were five couples and were all seated outside under the arch. The manager, an ederly happy gentleman greeted us and frequently poped over to see that all was fine. The vegetarian menu is vast, with a choice of fusion foods from several continents. Our starter ranged from Bruschetta Vittoriosa (aptly named after the city), indian samosas to japanes tempura and mexican tacos. The plates were very well and professionally presented. The portions very generous , that we all wondered whether we even needed the main course! The waiter had guided us throuth the menu and recommended the specials of the day. We had some wonderful fresh hot lasange, freshly made raviolli, tortilli and moroccon vegetable targine with couscous. The food was just simply delicious! They we so artistically presented and eye-catching. The food was accompanied by good local maltese wine. Again, portions are very generous, and very reasonably priced. Deserts were to die for, with the colourful selection of cakes and fresh fruit salad. We truely THANK TATE for a super evening and a Birthday meal i wont forget!. What is important to note is that all five couples were NON VEGETARIAN, and none of us realised that it was a vegetarian restaurant, till we were half way through our main courses. We certainly didnt miss the meat! This is a credit to the restaurant, as it did not force vegatarinism upon us, but discreetly showed us , how wonderful pure vegetarian food can be! Thank You TATE , you will certainly see us again.
