Quaint & characterful little wine bar with vaulted ceilings, on one of the narrow streets typical of Valetta. The first evening we went there was during an art fair, and the whole street was packed with local artists and performers - such fun! We've been...More

Trabuxu wine bar is a disappointment. The setting is nice, the atmosphere is cool. The first time, it's a welcome retreat with a good variety of wine and nice crowd. The second time you notice that you don't have much of a choice when it...More

My husband and I found Trabuxu while walking around Valletta. I loved how nice the outdoor seating looked and we stopped for a bottle of wine. The staff was lovely and there is a wine for every price range. We selected a bottle and soaked...More

The environment is great and wine is good. Problem with the place is that they dont have any platters or a menu for the nibbles they have, which mostly are cheeses. You have to go over to the counter cheese display and ask them for...More

Very good wine, very good French cheeses, amazing chicken liver parfait and pork terrine AND to top it all off they serve Gillardeau oysters as well! It's a pity that it was hot inside because it looks very comfortable and welcoming. You could look for...More

We had read about Trabuxu and thought we’d give it a go. We really wish we hadn’t bothered spending much of our precious Saturday evening there in the end. No food “it’s a wine bar” (said snootily upon request for a food menu and then...More

We stopped here as the place was buzzing. Nobody inside due to the heat so everyone was in the narrow street. Perfectly fine except every chair/stool wobbles because it’s an old stone surface. We took advice and ordered a nice local red. It was only...More

Trabuxu used to be one of my favourite spots for wine and platters... Not anymore. Platters are very overpriced, staff unfriendly.
