“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Loved this every time we ate here (4 times in a week!!!) We generally like to chose diferent restaurants each night, but this was so good, and so convenient (we stayed at Le Meridien!). The sea bass was delightful, just loved it all.

“Good food in basic surroundings.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

The food here is fresh and tasty and reasonably priced. The surroundings and staff are in keeping with bistro style restaurants.
We ate here one evening and three times for breakfast.
Cleanliness didn't seem to be high on the agenda as our table was dirty on one occasion and the cover on the breakfast croissants wasn't in place for at least 15 mins. It was then used to wave the flies away before being put in place.
It is worth a try however.

“Stylish and well prepared food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Well prepared food and generous portion size. Friendly service and generaly quick but when they had a lot of guest the waitress keept forgetting things like bread and salt so I had to ask several times. Despite this minor issue I would say that the service is very good and I liked their fish and risotto. The risotto was coocked to perfection. The braised rabbit was a huge portion but the presentation and taste was more like what you would expect in a pub. Not at all at the same very high level as the other dishes I tried. The side sallad was very tasty but why put it in a very small dish so that half the portion ends up on the table? Good value for money but I would not order the braised rabbit. Would love to go back to U Bistrot again. Good view of the sea but the road between the restaurant and the sea is quite lively.

“Best chocolate fondant I've ever had.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

You must visit this restaurant if you want somewhere with really good food, a great atmosphere, and that won't make you feel like a tourist!
