We visited Marsaxlokk on a Sunday morning to see the fish market. The village was packed with visitors [mostly local, not tourists] and the restaurants very busy. At mid-morning we asked if they could manage a table for two for lunch and the very obliging managereress was able to fit us in, at a table in the bar.

Despite being very busy, the service was good, the food fresh and delicious, and the atmosphere welcoming. We would recommend this restaurant to all seafood lovers.

We have been to this restaurant various times, and I have to say that we were never disappointed. The staff is extremely polite and friendly. I've tried various dishes, but I have to say my favourite is Tagliatelle al Astice - but everything is nice.

The dessert is also usually delicious, although I usually tend to choose the cheesecake (in fact during the middle of the meal I usually try to reserve one, as they seem to run out).

The decor is modern, fresh and not too fussy. It's not obtrusive. It's always enjoyable.

During our stay in Malta, we visited Tartarun several times.
We have never eaten fish that fresh. It was excellently prepared and also beautifully presented.
The staff were very helpful and patient in helping us choose wine from an extensive wine list.
The interior is modern and pleasurable and you wouldn’t expect this from the outside.
We cordially recommend the very tasty food.

We visited this restaurant twice during a recent week's holiday in Malta, the first time by accident and immediately booked for later in the week, both times for lunch. The service was excellent as was the fresh fish - beautifully prepared and presented. Helpful and very knowledgeable staff helped us choose great local wine on both occasions.
It was reasonably quiet on both occasions, but we did visit lunchtime in mid February. For our next visit to Malta we will certainly book in advance.

Being a fine dining, wine loving fish aficionado, Marsaxlokk is my first choice when it comes to an eat out, and I have virtually visited all of the most renown restaurants in the area, all of which are pretty much excellent. However, even amidst such fierce competition, Tartarun beats everyone hands down: classy, welcoming venue, impeccable service by young, enthusiastic people, a wine cellar boasting the cream of the world's best, excellent value, all crowned by James' masterful cooking.. best carpaccio and freshest sea bream I've tasted in a long time! The quality here is just unbeatable. Picture perfect.
