I brought a group of people here for a mid-week lunch. Our main course of meagre was outstanding. I guessed it was quite fresh and the owner confirmed it had been caught earlier that morning. You could taste it. The mussel, clam and saffron veloute was also excellent. Dessert (chocolate marquise with raspberry sorbet) was a very nice way to... More

Visited recently, since it had been recommended as first class for those who love fish - we were not disappointed . In particular the starter menu, it was amazing. The staff appreciated that my wife and I were not big eaters and adapted our choice of 'catch of the day' accordingly. It was an unforgettable eating experience.

Stayed in Marsaxlokk and had two excellent meals here. We chose meat, but the fish looked delicious as well - presented at your table before cooking! Twice cooked potatoes as a side dish were sublime. Comparatively a bit expensive, and don't visit if you're in a hurry, as the service was quite slow. Having said that, the staff were very... More

Classy and tasty. Cannot go wrong here. Attentive staff. A good selection of main dishes. All fish and seafood dishes were excellent. The dessert menu was awesome. Terrific creme brulee.

Definition of a job well done in d catering business. From service to food, everything is top-notch here and we're quite regulars and always extremely satisfied. My favourite dishes are d prawn carpaccio and their pasta with lobster. Also fish is very very fresh.

The food at Tartarun is simply delicious! Apart from this, they have impeccable service thanks to their professional staff (including managers/owners). Recently, my mother took my grandma for a birthday lunch. Not only did was the meal mouth watering, but it was truly nice to see the staff (probably the owner) go out of her way to engage in conversation... More
