Visited Trabuxu twice during my 10 day trip to Malta - Everything was great (staff, food, drink, ambiance). Restaurant has a cool vibe (definitely not traditional or stuffy) I'd describe menu as delicious and refined comfort food - a must stop when visiting Valletta.

Visited this lovely wee restaurant after reading trip advisor reviews. We had pork cheeks, pork belly (love pig!) and linguine with broccoli and anchovies after our seriously tasty starters. Still salivating just thinking about it. Staff were friendly, knowledgable and entertaining - would go back in heartbeat.

Servers are as entertaining as they are efficient. Chateaubriand special was fantastic and a great recommendation. Soup, veggies, etc. prepared perfectly. Fun night!

Great food and lovely staff. Where to start ? The great wine list, honestly price ? The food is certainly to recommend too. We tried the salmon tartare which was as I like it. Not too much lemon but a good acidity to balance the lemon. The rack of lamb or the rabbit stew were well seasoned. Carrot cake excellent.... More

We ate lunch here in a rush last week. They told us the fresh fish they had available then cooked it to perfection. We ate here a few times last year when we were in Malta for snorkeling. The staff are wonderful and helpful and the food is tremendous. Don't miss this place.

We went there July 18.th at my husbands birthday. We had been trying to get a table there for some days, finally it happened, as we booked days in advance. We had the best gourmet dinner ever!! The waitress could tell us ALL about the menu and she knew ALL about the wines. We are still impressed and are looking... More

Lovely place with exquisite food. I enjoy eating at this restaurant not only because the food is delicious but also because the place is so original. Love the decor! As a starter I had Gorgonzola fritters with walnuts and as a main I had spaghetti with prawns and marrows. My partner had lentils as a starter followed by tagliata di... More
