Amazing

Just celebrated our wedding anniversary with an amazing lunch at Tartarun! Food is delicious - best mussels and sea bass I've eaten! Halva ice-cream decadent! Service impeccable. Also ideal for an impressive business lunch. Will surely return.

Lots of outdoor cafes in Marsaxlokk but we were pleased we had chosen to have our last lunch in Malta in Tartarun. No outdoor seating but it was a hot day so we preferred the a/c. We had a table by the window so it was a good spot for people watching (although no views of the harbour as such... More

We dropped here for a dinner, quite early (just past 12). Restaurant was empty, but looked like we should stay. We had local soup - OK, and local fish (catch of the day) - Baracuda. All well served. Tasty local wine.

I was there for lunch as always never booked- but knew these people would find place for me. The place was quiet busy but being only two, a table was quickly found for us. I was in the mood for a nice fish soup and so ordered that immediately as I am always in a rush and hate to wait.... More

5-star food with a very relaxing atmosphere. Menu very original with mixed Mediterranean and Continental dishes. Fish is the specialty, even because it is situated in the picturesque village of Marsaxlokk, the fishing village of Malta. I was there on Sunday lunch and the service was a bit sluggish, but worth the wait. It is expensive, but what does one... More

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.
