I had lunch at this restaurant by chance. In all fairness we were not greeted in the best of ways. I was with my motorcycle and the staff did not like the fact i walked in with my leather jacket and helmet (I think the restaurant has a dress code) and seemed quite surprised I wanted to have lunch there....

Went here last night, a group of six. After finding a favourite restaurant was fully booked decided to try Tartarun. What a treat. Service friendly but professional. No long waiting times. You have to eat fish here as you could not get it any fresher. We had a mixed fish platter to start and everything was well presented and tasted... More

Loved the atmosphere of the restaurant - stylish quality amid a raft of stock standard tourist fish and chips outlets. Loved the quality of the food - excellent for both seafood and fish. Thanks to the staff who were friendly and helpful. A quality restaurant by any measure.

Great fresh fish, lovely surroundings, super service. No outdoor seating but as this is on a relatively busy street you will want to eat inside. Well worth a visit.

This place was a bit difficult to find, had no big signs or outdoor seating, but as soon as we found it and opened the door to the restaurant we felt welcome and the interior was relly nice. First we had a drink in the bar and they did know how to make mojitos and apperol spritz which we hadn´t... More

I do not know where to begin here. Welcomed by a warm friendly team, offered warm bread with homemade mushroom butter... as well as some fish croquettes from the chef, we are just beginning here. We ordered the prawn carpaccio and the fish soup as starters. I could marry this carpaccio. I had not eaten something so fine cutted, beautiful... More

What more could anyone ask from a restaurant, except, possibly, beautiful views. While Tartarun is in Marsaxlokk. Malta, an extremely picturesque village, the restaurant is located across the street from the water. It doesn't matter. Their menu is superb, as is the level of service. The restaurant is well air-conditioned, a "must" on hot humid days. Sunday market days, even... More

Service was insanely slow, but the food and cost made up for it. Seven of us stuffed our faces for tree fiddy (€350). Would recommend.

Ate here a week ago and was very disappointed. Average seafood in a very nice restaurant but overpriced and with slow service. This is very well thought of by locals and some visitors but in my opinion for no good reason. There are many other restaurants within yards who offer better value for money.
