“Beautiful fish, simply prepared - Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

We recently visited Tartarun for lunch with friends who were visiting from the UK. We all had fish from the fish of the day menu. The fish we ate was presented to us prior to cooking and then filleted and simply grilled with olive oil. It was served with a gorgeous salad and roasted potatoes, when fish is this fresh and delicious it does not need anything else. Thje deserts on the other hand were elaborate and sweet gooey gorgeousness. I have not eaten better anywhere. The staff were attentive, knowledgeable and very professional. i would recommend this restaurant highly. I have added a photo of the white chocolate parfait with raspberries.

“Classy restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Due to tripadvisor, this was a planned event on our tour of Malta. We were not disappointed. The fish was cooked to perfection. Robyn had sea bass, I had snapper. The potatoes, salad, bread and Gozo White wine complemented the fish beautifully. The service was excellent. The bay and the fishing boats divine. A must!

“Very Good Food & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

It was the first time we have been there and we suggested the restaurant to our best friends who were visiting from the UK, from Tripadvisor. They wanted fresh fish and that is what we got from Tartarun. I was impressed with both service and food we were given. My wife's Prawn Carpaccio was out of this world. Even the deserts were quite unusual but very very good. Will be visiting again for sure.

“Nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

We visited this restaurant for about a couple of times and were never disappointed. The food and service are excellent. Their specialty is fish, which I have to say was always fresh and tasteful but don't hesitate to try their other dishes, especially pasta.

“Top Class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

recommended by the Black Pig in Valletta;

Sunday lunch so we had to wait until just before 2 pm given the influx of people for the market but well worth the wait

Attentive service from the moment we walked though the door

Accomodating as to requests to have a main course dishes as a starter (sea food platter) and then a thorough explanation of the fresh fish for main course
top quality food, wine and service -what more do you need?;

if you are in the area go for it
