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.

Exquisite fine marine cuisine that is genuine, varied, and ably falvoured in a way to retain the real taste of the sea. Huge variety of totally fresh fish and seafood! It is by far better than upper market perceived fish restaurants that charge more cause of their ultra fine-dining ambience. The only down-side is the occasional rowdy patrons table of... More

Marsaxlokk is well known for it's fresh fish restaurants, was very rarely disappointed eating in this area, but Tartarun probably beats the rest. Besides having a vast selection of fresh fish, the food presentation, service and selection is one of the best.

Fine dining experience with great service and good quality food. Lots of fresh fish and other seafood, including a lobster tank. Decent prices and a good wine list. Best way to go is just follow the waiter's advice and let him put together a mixed platter for the table to share. Good location right on the harbour in the best... More

We went to Marsaxlokk on day tour to visit the fish market but it was over. Googling we found this fine restaurant with good service, but it needs to improve the taste of the plates and the price is high for the food!!!

I recomend this restaurant to all the Trip Advisor Readers as a... More

Went here with high hopes having heard so many good things about it... ended up distinctly unimpressed with the whole experience. After a warm welcome, attentive waiter and very nice olive butter to go with the bread it went downhill fast... the menu was very limited, seemed almost to be pushing you to order the overpriced fresh fish just to...

Situated strategically in Marsaxlokk bay this restaurant offers very well served fresh fish. Service is impeccable and the price is reasonable. Went for a Tuesday lunch and the place was very well frequented.

Recommended as the best fish restaurant on the island. Located in the bottom of the Marsaxlokk fishing harbor. We went there for a lunch during an out-of-season week. Reception was rather clumsy, the young waiter having some problems with English. Nevertheless, further two hours' happenings were entirely pleasing for the body and soul. Enough parking lots by the seashore within... More
