The restaurant nothing to say beautiful location. apparently fresh fish. I want to point out, however, the service is not up, as the table is not been laid immediately. and towels never arrived we had to ask them to dinner already begun.

Food is amazing everything is really delicious from starter to dessert, however the service is not the best and the staff are very arrogant. We booked before going for 6 and a highchair. When we arrived we were given a table for six with no highchair. We had to ask three times for it and once it came they placed... More

It's the fourth time I've been to this restaurant and it never disappoints. The staff are attentive and courteous. The food is sublime. I've never tried another starter: the prawn carpaccio is both perfect and unique. Today the special was tuna: two large pieces cooked perfectly rare within the texture of fillet steak and a taste that melted in the... More

We've visited Tartarun during lunch time. It was fairly full, but no reservation was needed. Service was quick and food was delightful, indeed. One of the best value for money we've got during our stay on Malta & Gozo islands.

Our meal today at this restaurant was superb. We both started with the Maltese fish soup. I followed up with fish of the day, a grilled black spotted sea bream whilst my friend enjoyed the royal seafood platter. The accompanying potatoes were flavoured with fennel seeds and fresh herbs. It was simple but delicious. We shared a halva ice cream... More

As a result of good timing, we managed to lunch in between our bus-hop-off and hop-on in marsaxlokk. Fortunately we had our lucky guess in finding Tartarun. We chose for the pasta with lobster, which was excellent. And they suggested a maltese chardonnay that was okay, and available in half bottles. The finishing touch were lemon sorbets, great. Afterwards I... More

Service: 7/10 Selection of Shellfish: 5/10 Selection of Fish: 9/10 Quality of Food: 7.5/10 It is a good restaurant, ok service, good food but nothing extraordinary as it is many times described. There are much higher qualitative fish restaurants on the island.
