Our first visit was great, food was excellent as was the service on the night. Second time around was not quite the same. Booked latish (2030hrs), went there right away and was told to wait for a window table which we were shown by the Chef Patron. While waiting he offered us a prosecco, which we eventually accepted. In came another couple who weren't happy with their table and bang...... there goes our window table! We were then led to a central table which was already available when we had arrived, and we were given the poor excuse that the other couple had booked before us. We obviously weren't happy with that, because Mr. Chef Patron, you just don't treat clients in that manner. Along came another four clients who were taken upstairs, and the chef patron went on to "convince" us (didn't want to spoil the evening by refusing) to go upstairs. Upstairs kind-of had no atmosphere, except for the extremely courteous and helpful American waiter who gave us his best attention. Nothing negative about the food, very good in fact as previoulsy. But when offered a prosecco while waiting for your table you don't really expect to find it on your bill - but there it was, and again, you just don't treat clients in that manner. Did you really think that you could get away with treating clients in this way? Well, your competitors (and there are many who offer good food and service) will now be benefiting from our custom!

Been there twice with wife and Paul our dearest friend. We went for dinner, with something of an appetite. We found that Tarragon is slightly more expensive per dish than the average. Although the quality is good the quantity is lacking. We were not that impressed on both occasions and we have not returned. We might give it another try. Service is extremely good but as we said we did not leave the place dancing with satisfaction.

Brilliant meal at Tarragon once again. We ate here on 29th December with my elderly father having arrived in Malta earlier that day. The food is fantastic, highly recommend the fish in baked salt crust (one of their signature dishes) and the wagu beef. My father said it was the best fish he had ever eaten! Very friendly and efficient staff who are happy to talk about food and wine as much or as little as you want, guidance is available if you need it but suggestions are also welcome from diners.

If you are offered a special or something created by Marvin, the Chef, that day, go with it - I promise you won't be disappointed, even if it is something you wouldn't normally even consider.

Wonderful, wonderful restaurant.
