Great breakfast

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.

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

U Bistro is a small and cozy little restaurant which serves really nice food. The service is excellent. The portions could be bigger though.

We were a party of 6 and booked in advance. Service was slow throughout the meal. We were never asked if we needed anything such as more wine or water. The meat of 2 of the main courses was tough. When the waitress asked how the food was (when clearing the plates) we told her meat was tough. She did... More

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 passed... 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
