Great Maltese fish restaurant, with delicious fresh fish and pasta fish dishes. Nice setting, in one of the smaller ports, worth a journey, off the beaten track!

If you're in the Maltese Island South side, and you're there for Business, very few places deserve your booking, and Tartarun at Marsaxlokk is one of them. Carpaccio's are always State-of-the-art, pasta very good, but the catch of the day is outstanding: follow the indication...More
