Situated in the picturesque village of M'Xlokk. Tables are laid out with care. The service is very good and polite. Clean ambiance decorated with good tastes. The antipasti are so appetising especially the prawn carpaccio. The fish soup is excellent and the pasta with lobster is delicious. My husband had fresh fish and it was cooked to perfection. The roast... More

We came here after market closing - we were the last ones that got service from kitchen while it closed for afternoon. We all ordered fish soup and my fish soup was searching the fish - there was nothing - soup was good though. Service was excellent and was working fine. We perhaps need to come here to test this...

Had a nice experience here. Went with two friends and we had fish and chicken. The fish was nicely filleted and the chicken was not dry. Also had soup for starters - sweet potato and aljotta (traditional maltese fish soup). The sweet potato soup was very nice, but I've had better aljotta, but that's a personal taste thing. We had...

Our guidebook said that Tartarun was the best restaurant on the waterfront in Marsaxlokk -- it was terrific. The place is beautiful, elegant and calm. The staff are are also calm, dignified and helpful. The food was a knockout. We started with some little fish- and- curry beignets, which were nice. We then had the sea bass, a regular item... More

After spending a miserable New Year's Day trying to find a place to stay, our AirBnB being uninhabitable, my family and I stumbled around the Marsaxlokk area looking for somewhere to eat. As is to be expected, everywhere was packed with holiday bookings. The kind-hearted server here allowed my family to sit in the bar, then allowed us to order... More

Really nice and elegant atmosphere close to the harbour for a fish centered cuisine. Food was well prepared and well presented, with options for gluten free needs.

I'll keep this short and sweet. This place is my favorite restaurant; at least in Malta. It ticks all the boxes as far as atmosphere, service and food quality. Every time I came here with my girlfriend for dinner, we were always treated with respect and attention. All the waiters are polite, pleasant, fast and knowledgeable of the menu. Food... More

We held a family celebration lunch 3 weeks ago. The owners prepared a wonderful dining experience. We had a generous set menu of assorted seafood starters which were delicious and almost enough to satisfy one's appetite. However, the food was too good and we all dug in to the a la carte mains, consisting of a variety of fresh fish... More
