This place was a bit difficult to find, had no big signs or outdoor seating, but as soon as we found it and opened the door to the restaurant we felt welcome and the interior was relly nice. First we had a drink in the bar and they did know how to make mojitos and apperol spritz which we hadn´t... More

I do not know where to begin here. Welcomed by a warm friendly team, offered warm bread with homemade mushroom butter... as well as some fish croquettes from the chef, we are just beginning here. We ordered the prawn carpaccio and the fish soup as starters. I could marry this carpaccio. I had not eaten something so fine cutted, beautiful... More

What more could anyone ask from a restaurant, except, possibly, beautiful views. While Tartarun is in Marsaxlokk. Malta, an extremely picturesque village, the restaurant is located across the street from the water. It doesn't matter. Their menu is superb, as is the level of service. The restaurant is well air-conditioned, a "must" on hot humid days. Sunday market days, even... More

Service was insanely slow, but the food and cost made up for it. Seven of us stuffed our faces for tree fiddy (€350). Would recommend.

Ate here a week ago and was very disappointed. Average seafood in a very nice restaurant but overpriced and with slow service. This is very well thought of by locals and some visitors but in my opinion for no good reason. There are many other restaurants within yards who offer better value for money.

In this stylish air conditioned restaurant we had fresh fish with a nice white local chardonnay (Carravaggio of Marsovin). Service was good, professional, but the lady of the house wasn't really in a good mood. A smile wasn't possible! The other waitresses though were very kind and helpful. The silver bream was the best My husband ever had. Just perfect.... More

Arrived without a reservation in an almost packed restaurant, yet the courteous staff still managed to sort out a table for us. We ordered a starter and opted to have 'gurbell' as a main, all was from the specials' menu for the night. The starter dishes were fantastic, the main on the otherhand did not particularly impress, but still perfectly... More

Took a couple of British friends yesterday and we were very satisfied of the service and food! €45/pp but included starters, fresh fish, dessert & a couple of bottles of wine.
