The atmosphere is lovely. However the nibbles are shamefully overpriced. We ordered a terrine for 15 euro. It was nothing special and a very small portion. I suggest you revamp your menu. For the same price you can order a real main course at many...More

Trabuxu Never disappoints. The ambience is so lovely. Cosy yet lively. Love the inside space as well as sitting outside by the stairs. Staff are brilliant and very knowledgable. They don't try to upsell you on the expensive stuff but try to seriously figure out...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
