Tartarun restaurant situated in the heart of Marsaxlokk specialises in fresh fish. We select the fish and its source carefully to provide genuine local produce for an exquisite fish dining experience. The feel of the restaurant is rustic, with a lot of wood work, yet it has a modern finish exposing local scenery and local way of life.
TARTARUN RESTAURANT was officially opened under this name in September, 2009, and has in this short time carved a name for itself that is well known and sought after from beyond the locality. The establishment has not fallen into the trap that most others have plunged headlong into, that is, going for an overtly large restaurant with so many covers that they could not cope with, but they have very intelligently adopted the strategy to service accepted covers by prior reservation, of up to some 60 maximum. The front of house is taken care of by Stephen Schiavone as the Maitre d’, who is assisted by an efficient brigade of servers, and the kitchen is run by Executive Chef James Schiavone, whose dishes and cuisine are becoming a benchmark for this class of restaurant. I do not normally give accolades like this lightly, but I have always believed and practiced the norm that credit should be given where ever credit is due.
The Menu at Tartarun is not a vast affair, but offers a selection of exquisite, gourmet dishes ranging from choices of antipasti such as Sashimi of Swordfish, Tequila and citrus cured salmon, Mediterranean Prawn Carpacio, and their renowned Cold poached Lobster salad, and others; Pasta including selections such as Tagliatelle “Astice” with half a lobster, cherry tomatoes, white wine and cream; Black “Tortellaci” stuffed with prawns and red mullet, fennel and fish fumet; Linguini Nero, etc. Main courses ranging from their massive seafood platter which they term as Tartarun’s Plateau Royal; Catch of the day fresh fish; Lobster from the tank,;the usual beef dishes of rib-eye or fillet; with the main accent of course being on fresh fish, seafood and seashells dishes.
