At Tartarun there is the perfect atmosphere to have a splendid dinner. All the fish tastes fresh. Every dish on the menu is cooked with the utmost care and precision, the taste of the food is excellent. I recommend this restaurant to families which do not have young children and couples. This restaurant is the perfect place for occasions such... More

Agree with jmblux.Small family owned restaurant, located in the nice fishing village of Marsaxlokk. Service is efficient. Very good food & selection of local wines. Prices - when coming from northern Europe - are ridiculous for the value but for the local value its rather too expensive. Recommended.

Popped in on the off chance for Sunday lunch. We were offered a table, much to our delight. Great service and superb food. We can recommend the octopus and of course, the fish of the day. We are hoping to return very soon.

Small family owned restaurant, located in the nice fishing village of Marsaxlokk. Service is efficient, athough very formal. Very good food & selection of local wines (I had a great maltese viognier). Prices - when coming from northern Europe - are ridiculous for the value . DO not miss this place !

Visited for dinner our last night in Malta. The atmosphere was calm, and quiet. The staff very attentive. But the food was definitely the best part. All of us enjoyed our meal, my grouper was perfectly cooked. The portion sizes were what I expected and the wait time to get our food short. Highly recommend this restaurant!

It opens quite late at 7.30pm, i guess we were more used to having dinner early but that was fine, we were... More

I brought a group of people here for a mid-week lunch. Our main course of meagre was outstanding. I guessed it was quite fresh and the owner confirmed it had been caught earlier that morning. You could taste it. The mussel, clam and saffron veloute was also excellent. Dessert (chocolate marquise with raspberry sorbet) was a very nice way to... More
