“Service with a chuckle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

So we all want good food and a good ambiance when we go out to eat. We all want reliability and consistency (especially if we are taking guests). But most of us want something more. And Trabuxu just has it.

Ok, the other patrons always seem to having a great time which helps to create an atmosphere...

But the X-factor is the guys who run it. Why do they always seem to having such a great time themselves?

Have eaten there lunchtime for business and evening - on a date and other times with friends - and always delightful.

“Great local food & wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

The food was top class with a great wine. We felt so at home we ordered another bottle of wine after our dinner to "chill out" the evening.

“Exceptional in every respect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

An unforgettable lunch. Outstanding, friendly, attentive and entertaining service, delicious food, very appropriate and excellent background music and cosy surroundings. The only thing I could do on completion was to book to visit again on my last day in Malta.

“Fantastic rabbit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Very friendly staff, great decor, nicely paced service and the best rabbit cooked in white wine I've ever had. Really added to a wonderful day in Valetta
