Welcome

to Il-Kartell Restaurant

Steeped in a rich heritage of family, good and honest dining, and a sublime view of the crystal waters of the Mediterranean. Il-Kartell is one of the first standalone restaurants in Marsalforn which has truly been a family affair since its inception in the early 1970s. Despite the minor changes to the landscape, Il-Kartell remains somewhat of a local cornerstone in the world of dining and leisure. The foundations of our kitchen and restaurants 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.

Menu

fresh & locally sourced produce

Our menu offers a wide variety of wholesome soups, fresh salads, creative light dishes, platters, antipasto, sumptuous fish, meat, and poultry.
They are all perfect combinations suitable for both lunches and relaxed evening dinners.
