I was there last week with a group of Italian friends. I ad booked a table so we were immediately ushered to our table and served water until we decided what we were going to eat. ON my way in I had spotted a grouper that was just slightly bigger then what we needed. We ordered linguine with crayfish, that... More

I've been in Tartarun with friends, and there I had the best fish I ever had. The restaurant is exactly at the sea and it seems that the fish just was from the sea at the exact moment of the order :) I am looking forward to go to that restaurant the first thing when I happen to be in... More

Visited Tartarun for a dinner with my wife . The atmosphere , service and food are all excellent . Will make it our number one choice for fish. Would love to see Fritto misto being served.

What started off badly (our reservation was not noted) turned out to be a pleasant meal. Sharing Antipasti provided an array of original fish starters followed by a tasty pasta with prawns. Water and bottle of 2013 Gavi + coffee and bottom line was € 45 pp. Considering the main course was just pasta Place is a bit pricy. Service... More

This must be the classiest restaurant in Marsaxlokk. There are many good, typical restaurants along the Marsaxlokk sea-front, however if you want fine dining, then this is one of the 2 or 3 restaurants here that you should go to. The ambience and decor is just right for the restaurant that faces the sea and many fishing boats in the... More

This restaurant is opposite the fishing port. It serves a variety of local fish, beautifully cooked in a pleasant and modern setting. If you want the best of fresh fish come here.
