I dont like the restaurants at marsaxlokk. They re generally touristy, cheap quality, poor menus and overpriced. This is the only restaurant worth a try. Owners definately know what they re doing. Service is amazing, food top notch.. beautiful location.

I dined with a large group from a fixed multi-course menu. Each course was very good; some were outstanding. The restaurant is clean and bright, with a very warm feel. The staff seemed to be having fun with us. I would recommend a visit for anyone visiting southern or central Malta.

The food was good.... However, we had to wait a long time for the main course which was luke-warm when it arrived. Had waited so long that didn't comment at the time. When I commented on this to the waiter later when he asked if all was ok, and said the food was good but not hot, he denied that... More

One of those restaurants to save for a special occasion. Everything on the menu looked absolutely delicious however I think that their fish and seafood dishes are definitely their forte. Great service and lovely atmosphere. Looking forward to having dinner here again.

We were a table of 7 for Easter Sunday Lunch. One would expect less a service or decrease in quality of food during these feasts but not this restaurant. We were served well, the food was divine, and made our family lunch great!!! I highly recommend this restaurant, especially Fish Lovers.

We had read about this restaurant in one of the Maltese Magazines so we had to try it out. We walked in without a reservation very early and thankfully we did because you need a reservation.Luckily they did find us a table. The service was great as was the food. The Black Tortellacci of Langustine and Crab was amazing. The... More

I had the great pleasure of being taken as a guest to Tartarun Fish Restaurant in the little fishing village of Marsaxlokk by a group of friends. There are many restaurants in this village serving fresh fish but this one has class, great ambience, a very nice well stocked bar and a dining room with tables a plenty and a... More
