My wife and I really enjoyed our meal here. She is pregnant and vegetarian and the waiters were more than happy to help finding something suitable. We had the vegetarian and Spanish bruschetta. Half of each, definitely only need 1 to share between 2. Both halves were excellent. I had the beef tagliata for mains which was fantastic and the... More

Visited with friends and took a while to be seated. Service was ok but food just wasn't up to scratch. Squid with cheese was a really bizarre mix that just didn't work. Meats were chewy and tasteless. Amazing venue but food did not match!

We loved this restaurant. Our local host recommended it and we were not disappointed. I had the fig & prosciutto to start, the tagliatelle del mare for main, and the fig ice cream for dessert. All 3 courses and the local white wine we enjoyed were just beautiful! The atmosphere was very relaxed but with a sense of class about... More

It is small and not easy to find. Once you get there, it's perfect. We went twice in the last 4 days and we'll probably go again. The menu is not large, but everything looks yummy. Then there are weekly specials, not to be missed. We loved the bruschetta above all! Pasta dishes are very good (we had pesto and... More

You'll need to explore the backstreets of Victoria to find food worth hunting for, but once here you'll be glad you did.Off the tourist track and with none of the traps, Maldonado Bistro is the sort of place only locals know about but with the food and ambiance to charm all. Our menu is a satisfying mix of the best local delicacies, bruschetta, pasta, grills and salads. So go exploring and discover a spot to treasure.
