I tried all week to eat here but they seemed on holiday. On our last night in Valletta we walked up to see if they were open, we had eaten already so when we found them open we only had some drinks.
A real shame as the food looked superb, nothing fancy but good local food done well and with real gusto.
We had a very reasonably priced bottle of Maltese wine - from an award winning winery at €15 a bottle, beat that. The wine list had dozens of other wines ...
Knowledgeable and enthusiastic service as well as some light local entertainment and an enthusiastic crowd made for a really good evening. Housed in an atmospheric old cellar decorated with wine paraphernalia - the name of this bar means corkscrew in Malti.
A must do for your trip.

Go to Trabuxu. I went to the restaurant specifically, rather than the wine bar. The atmosphere is dark wood with antiques and charm. I was the lone tourist there for lunch. Ordering the grilled tuna I did not expect such a generous quantity of delicious food. As I waited for my tuna, out came marinated butter beans and bread. A huge portion of perfectly grilled tuna,sitting on a vegetable ragout, quickly followed accompanied by, salad, and fried potatoes. Everything, including the wine was outstanding. Portions are far lager than I expected. The bill was not. Great food, great atmosphere, great value.
