The service was excellent and the food was exceptional. Very good staff, some notable mentions are Ben and Mark and another male waiter who was very friendly which unfortunately didn't catch the name.

This restaurant was extremely accommodating, and graciously allowed me to dine without a reservation. It ended up being one of the best seafood meals I've ever had. Everything must have just been caught that day, was prepared with such care, and was extremely flavorful. I'd...More

A restaurant which offers amazing food and service. Waiters are courteous, well mannered and offer the best service ever. Plus the food is impeccable! Don't think you can get better food in Marsaxlokk than at Tartarun.

Nice ambience, excellent service. Have been to this place at least 10 times over the last few years. Excellent food throughout. My weaknesses are the prawn carpaccio and cippullazza (rockfish) cooked al cartoccio. Great selection of wines, daily specials. Try it.

Really fantastic fresh fish! We visited on a Sunday - best to book in advance else you'll be unlikely to get a table. Very helpful staff, food was at a sensible price also.

Very pleased with our meal here. Do not understand the previous review as all I had to do was raise my hand to anyone. It is true we arrived early. The soft shell crab was perfect, the octopus probably the best I've ever had, but...More

As number two restaurant in Marsaxslokk, we were expecting a special dinner. Indeed, the menu was interesting and the food was very good indeed. But the service was very disappointing. They didn't really seem to care, were very inflexible and were great at avoiding us...More

This is a restaurant for fish lovers. We eat the sea bas but try also the catch of the day. Service is friendly and try the Malta wines. They are good.
