Bistro J is one of my favourite tucked away places to eat either lunch or dinner. It is a quaint spot with a romantic atmosphere. The service has always been attentive over the years. The food and drinks are good and the menu varies daily written on a chalkboard that you can peek and see through the window if you... More

Friday night in Hamilton is always the busiest night of the week and if you have not booked it can sometimes be hard to get into your preferred dining destination particularly 'in season'. We ended up at Bistro J having had an excellent dinner here in the past. It first struck us how quiet it was, it used to always... More

We are on vacation in Bermuda and have eaten at Bistro J on two occasions, both times we had great food and service. We also had similar experience last year. The restaurant is small and cosy but do not expect a huge menu, there are usually 4 choices of starter and main courses with the menu changing every day. We... More

This small bistro, located on Chancery Lane, is affiliated with the Port O' Call restaurant on Front Street and they share a kitchen. Having eaten several times at the excellent Port O' Call, I don't think they share chefs. The food was of average quality. My soup of the day had way too much pepper in it - and I... More

I think this is my favourite restaurant in Bermuda. They do a fixed price menu which is very reasonable. The wines are at a good price point. I've had several delicious meals here - the menu changes daily, they do blackboard specials, usually 4 apps and 4 entrees. One of the most memorable was the eggplant parmigiana. Definitely get the...

Loud but cozy bistro. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. The chef is heavy handed on the salt which has probably ushered in high blood pressure for those who could stomach mouthfuls of sodium. I could not eat my meal even when it was brought back a second time and neither could a colleague eat theirs. Below average desserts... More

2 fish dishes served to 2 different people were so over-salted they were inedible. Another dish, not described as being spicy was so spicy one bite would send a sensitive stomach to the bathroom for 3 days and would burn a spice lovers mouth for the entire meal. Cheesecake was great. No consideration or compensation or discounts given for meals... More

Did the fixed price 3 course menu for $35.50 per person. Both had calamari with BBQ sauce starter. Calamari was bland and needed lemon or some seasoning. Portion was a good size, though. I had flounder for main, which was delicious. Portion was small. Wife had steak and fries in a red wine sauce; steak was great, but fries were... More
