I had a really nice dinner here on 19/11/2014 with some friends who are regular customers. Starters were skipped and we went straight to mains: sea bass was perfectly cooked and not dry. There were plenty of seasonal vegetables although the fritters could have been substituted with something more interesting. Poached pear with cinnamon ice cream was a flavoursome winter... More

Visited here on a recommendation and I was very impressed. Wine and food was excellent plus good value for money. The service couldn't be faulted. The menu at first look seemed a little restricted but once the waiter described the specials there was quite a comprehensive choice.

Always a good sign when a restaurant is full on a Monday night in November as was the case this week, the waiters are happy and enthusiastic in their work creating a buzzing atmosphere, good food, great wine and great value, the art work is cool too.

Went here before reading the reviews, and returned as it was so good. Excellent food and service in a welcoming atmosphere. Will return next time I visit.

Went to the original cellar wine bar rather than the newer bistro. A fantastic little winelovers dream of a cellar, literally stacked with wine and just a few tables. A very short chalkboard menu but just exactly the things you want with an interesting bottle or two - platters of this and that fresh local produce, maybe a fondue, maybe... More

When we arrived in Malta the driver of the car to our hotel said meal portions were large. Took it with a pinch of salt but tonight we went to Trabuxu and had 2 of the specials. Fresh( and it was) tuna steak and the biggest crusted veal chop I,ve ever seen. Together with veg and lovely sautéed potatoes it... More

It has become a kind of family joke because on Sunday morning one of our boys will ask - So where have you been on Saturday night....and even before we get to answer, they will reply in unision - At Trabuxu! Yes, Trabuxu is a place which you simply have to visit time and time again. We end up saying... More

Very close to the fascinant and grand town entrance, thirty yards from the main street. Pedestrian's area, more or less. Three tables on the street not so inviting, go inside for a warm and cozy, if definitely not spacious surroundings. One restroom serving everyone, which can be truly annoying, but it is well kept. According to their website there seems... More

Our first day in Valletta & I am so pleased we stopped & chose Trabuxu for lunch. The decor is quaint, the choice of wines was fab! I had the chicken with lemon & thyme & my boyfriend had the veal. We enjoyed both dishes equally and almost couldn't fit in a dessert.. Almost - we shared one. Again, very... More
