Patrons consider this to be "the ideal restaurant for a romantic dinner" or "special occasion" where "everything is just perfect" and the food is "second to none"

Tarragon has racked up numerous awards over the years including this year’s Top Overall Restaurant, and with good reason. Chef patron and owner Marvin Gauci has tirelessly pushed himself to stay ahead of everyone else when it comes to innovation in cuisine and excellence in service. The tasteful interior décor truly enhances the elegance factor. The  place is spacious and allows for a completely unobstructed view of the sea.

While the menu can cater for more traditional tastes, it is the desire for novelty that really brings out the best experiences at Tarragon. Visit with an open mind and an appetite for the unexpected.  Start with reconstructed caprese of fresh mozzarella di buffala encased in tomato gel served on a brioche and pesto crute with basil caviar or fresh water trout carpaccio with tabasco caviar, a strawberry and white chocolate popsicle and crispy salmon skin.  Milk fed veal cheeks are marinated in a blonde beer reduction, slow cooked and served with a smokey apple and redcurrent reduction.  Fresh oysters, fish, shellfish, scallops and clams are all available at market prices.  Vegetarians are treated with kindness and consideration with a separate selection of dishes. All mains are served with veg and potatoes.  The wine list is a passionately assembled encyclopaedia . Read about the varietals, barriques, stoppage techniques, terroirs and regions for every bottle in stock.
