We'd been planning to go to Tartarun for a very long time. Everybody raved about it, and rightly so. The service is polite and professional ( although they didn't top up our wine as often as we would have liked them to). The food was PERFECT fish and seafood. My prawns were literally just cooked so their freshness could be... More

We had the Carpaccio, the spaghetti with sea food and a variety of seashells. When we are talking about seafood, the most important part is the quality and I have to say it was excellent! The personnel was extremely helpful. It doesn't have tables outside like most of the restaurants in the area, since it is not only for tourists,... More

Wonderful meal and the best service from our friendly waiter Stephen! Couldn't ask for more. The Shellfish Royal was superb as were the wines recommended.

My husband and I confirm the staff is very attentive in this family-run restaurant as I did not have to renounce to the linguine with seafood that is originally prepared with garlic; the non-garlic version was prepared for me without any problem and I could also enjoy with him the starter made of mussels, coriander and tomato without having to...

We visited for lunch and were very glad to have booked a table!! Seafood here was simply amazing. Local red prawns were a favourite of ours. We are still reliving the sublime flavour of their dishes! Not to be missed.

Fabulous fish restaurant, elegantly furnished and right in the corner on the seafront of this working port. Great dishes, beautifully presented. We had the prawn carpaccio and octopus sous vide to start with, and shared a slipper lobster pasta as a main, accompanied by a Sardinian Vermentino. The service was impeccable, and though the restaurant is smart, they didn't bat... More
