Tartarun is a classic and hard to beat. All is very fresh, the owners have a fishermen’s background. Was there couple of times and was never deceived. Please book in advance, always full. Ideal for winter or shoulder season, most of the tables are inside

Impeccable service and the food is simply delicious and stunning! Oysters and starters were amazingly fresh and main course of beef cheek and sea bass simply melted in your mouth! Accompanying veg and potatoes were also cooked perfectly. Wonderful evening! Definitely will visit again!
