“Good food and nice location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

The chef certainly knows what he is doing. Both the fish and meat were cooked to perfection. We appreciated the free appetizers although we expected something more traditional. The waiters sometimes seemed not to notice us perhaps because we were tucked in a corner. The food did take some time to arrive but when it did it was very good and we appreciated how the waitress filleted our fish. Bill came at 33 euro each including tips.

“Memorable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012 via mobile

The service is really good and the place has certain charm. Wine list was amazingly extensive and well chosen, besides not pricey at all. But we came for the food and we were not disapointed. Probably the best meal we had in Malta. The octopus was to die for, fish was cooked to perfection. Flawless!!

“Consistently great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

we first lunched at the delightful restaurant in 2009 and had fabulous lunch. so we naturally returned there when we again travelled to Malta and Marsaxlokk. we were equally impressed this year with the quality and quantity of food and the service.
Fantastic seafood

“Don't understand all the hype”

Yes , the food is good but to be honest, for the money, the portions are small.

“TARTARUN FISH RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

On our daytrip to Marsaslokk we tried this restaurant because of the good reviews on Trip Advisor - we were't dissappointed, it was awesome !!! A bit more expensive than we usually go for but was worth every penny. We had red snapper which the waiter fillited+halfed between us at our table + the prawn + langustine dish between us which would have fed 4 people, bread, lovely fresh salad + a drink each for 45 euros. Everything was fresh + cooked perfectly. If we'd bought same in Britain that would have cost a fortune. We didn't know there was so many different kind of prawns ! My fav. was the red prawns but they were all superb. DELICIOUS !!!
