The best food on island. There was few things missing from the menu and instead they offered some extra daily specials (like they did not have cappacio, but offered rabbit liver instead as they just had few fresh ones), meaning everything was superfresh. Not to mention that setting interesting, portions rather vigger than smaller and sooo tasty. The service was... More

We were so pleased with the quality of the food, waiting staff and atmosphere that we actually came back twice. The food is very delicious and good value.

nothing bad to highlight, food is good, price in the average for the place. I took just a big hamburger, but you can find meat and fish as well. One positive thing is the kitchen visible from the table, so you can see the chef preaping dishes. If you don't want to spend too much and don't want a five... More

We tried half a dozen restaurants in Sliema during our stay and liked this one so much we went twice. The food is freshly cooked and the place has a nice atmosphere. When the (free) bread was provided after ordering, it was accompanied by a medium pot of delicious tuna to spread on. As in Malta generally, the portions are... More

Had a great and tasty breakfast at U Bistrot, possibly the best in the area. The service was superb, with a smile and care. Also, very good value for money. Keep it that way.

Dining at U-Bistrot is not a punishment. The food is good and the service as well. The menu has variety, from burgers to steak as well as (seafood) pasta. All the food we had there was in the range from good to very good. The open kitchen looks clean and professional.

The staff is very friendly and the food was up to my one year waiting expectation (Call me lazy)! I just need to go back to try it all! Famous for their burgers but not only.. I could see the cook from where I sat and I admit it is a nice touch! Presentation delivers with every plate and be... More

U Bistro is situated in Balluta Bay and I try to visit on every occasion I go to Malta. It is a busy little place open throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is always popular with locals and tourists alike. It is cosy in the winter inside and in spring / summer months has tables outside. They... More
