You have arrived at Il-Kartell, a restaurant steeped in a rich heritage of family, good and honest dining and a sublime, almost unrivalled view of the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean.
Il-Kartell is one of the first standalone restaurants in Marsalforn and has truly been a family affair since its inception in the early nineteen seventies. Despite the changes in landscape, Il-Kartell remains, somewhat of a local cornerstone in the world of dining and leisure, the foundations of our kitchen and restaurant are built amongst the original structures of three boat houses and it is this opening chapter of the Il-Kartell story that we have returned to in our efforts and passion to deliver you the very best in casual dining by the sea.
Our concept is simple, it’s really about using as much of what we can source locally and freshly to deliver you a supreme experience in local and Mediterranean cuisine. The islands offer an abundance of fresh produce from the land and sea. From the fields, valleys and ocean, to our kitchen and to your table is, wherever possible, from the most trusted of sources – our extended family! In particular, our catch of the day is truly that. We are delighted to be able to offer fresh fish on a daily basis, caught from our families’ vessels and from the shore exclusively for Il-Kartell.
You will find our menu offers a wide variety of wholesome soups, fresh salads, creative light dishes, platters and antipasto and sumptuous fish, meat, poultry and game combinations suitable for both lazy lunches and relaxed evening suppers.
Our servers are on hand and are more than happy to tell you more about our fare, popular items from the menu and our daily and seasonal specialities.
We look forward to you joining us at Il-Kartell for a memorable experience, so sit back, relax and enjoy.
