Great service and great food

We had the cheese platter as a starter to share and then I had the burger. The food was outstanding and the waiters were very attentative. We had a lovely evening but had to wait 20mins for a table... in hindsight, we should have booked in advanced as it was busy but it well worth the wait - we... read more

This restaurant was right outside our hotel and we walked past is several times before stopping for an early sunday dinner. The tuna appetiser and grissini was excellent whilst waiting for our bruschetta, followed by our main course - lamb ravioli for my wife and prawn linguine for myself. Both were excellent and accompanied by a bottle of maltese sauv... More

We were made very welcome by the owner and staff who were fun, efficient and knew their trade. Recommended by the owner was cuttlefish pasta with black ink. A new dish to me and I was apprehensive but decided to try it. It was beautiful! I would certainly order the dish again.My other half had a burger which she lauded,... More

Excellent food, friendly and quick service. Not too formal. Free entertainment watching cars almost collide.

My first experience here was awful but was handled well. I have returned 3 ro 4 times and the food has always been of good quality. Stones throw from Le Meridien which is very handy.

U Bistrot is an amazing place to eat. The food is quite unique, so fresh and tasty and beautifully presented. The restaurant is small so it is advisable to book. We loved the atmosphere and the staff were so efficient and friendly. Well worth a visit. We will definitely be back.

Great place to go if you need a burger--they were delicious! The menu is not extensive, but has good choices. Nice place to sit outside and watch the harbor

We went here with a group of 11. We made reservations and asked to be seated inside. However, this might not be a good idea as it was a bit difficult to call the waiter/waitress when we wanted to order. Some food were also not available but we understood that it was a busy weekend for them. However, the food... More
