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!!!

Tartarun Restaurant at Marsaxlokk is one of the best Restaurants in Malta especially if you decide to have fish. They do not have a vast menu but but we were served perfectly good as the staff was polite and very well trained and besides the food was fantastic. 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

Excellent food. Great atmosphere for couples. Price on the high side but food is very good. We ate fish which was locally caught and extremely fresh. I definitely recommend this restaurant and will surely visit it again.

Excellent staff, all of them were very down to earth and prompt. The menu contained quite a nice variety, food serving did not take that long. Silver service was very accurate, not a single mistake was done. Impressive wine suggestions, everything went according to our expectation; and beyond ^^

Went to lunch this Saturday to Marsaxlokk and decided to stop again at this place. It had been a while I had not been but still the owner and staff greeted us as though we went there every day. We had grilled squid, shrimp carpaccio and fresh fried Anchovies as starters. We opted to skip their marvelous tortellacci and go... More
