We tried Trabuxu restaurant and the wine bar around the corner. We loved both. I had sea-bass which was cooked perfectly and a rich cheesecake for dessert. We tried the local wine which was excellent and reasonable.

Small but perfectly formed little restaurant. Very friendly, helpful staff. Food is tasty, especially the specials and they all are proud of their restaurant. It's quirky, not high luxe but a buzzy young vibe.

We visited this lovely bar during the stretta feast. Taking into consideration the amount of people that attended this feast and how busy restaurants and bars were we did not expect to be served fast and excellent, however we were surprised how the service and food was still great and we had nothing to complain about!! Thumbs up!! We are... More

Now that's how you do service. Nothing is too much for the brilliant little 'family' that runs Trabuxu. Beef carpaccio followed by a very 'al dente' sea urchin spaghetti made for a lovely meal. But it's the staff who are the true stars here.

Food divine, the chef out did himself. A great place, staff very friendly and efficient. Great restaurant, relaxed , music excellent choices. When visiting Trabuxu, one just want to sit back relax and share the moment with your wife. . Well done Chris.

Consistently good food served here. I particularly enjoy the delicious rib-eye steak served with a selection of mustards. Attentive service by the amiable Basque maitre d' completes an enjoyable dining experience.

Looking to escape from touristic menu's....., we entered into this nice wine bar, and everything was right! Pleasant atmosphere (plus for tables and chairs), and very friendly and professional staff. Food was excellent, also for kids.... over 10 (not always easy), and an additional plus because of value for money. Missing the top ranking only because meat was not rare... More

Very cozy ambiance and friendly staff. We had a cheese platter, a botle of water and a glass of the wine of the day. The platter was a very tasty mix of cheese, sausage, ham and mortadella and the wine was also very good, it only cost us €24. All in all, a great experience!

Great find thanks to Trip Adviser, a real little gem of a restaurant, quite small inside so would recommend booking. Decor inside is really quirky with all the tables being old dressing tables. Menu is Mediterranean with a good choice of starters, pasta, mains etc. Really good service from the owners and amazing food.
