Great food great value

We come quite often to U Bistrot. The food is great and the price is great too. Service is attentive and friendly. The only thing that I was trying to figure out is if there are two different chefs, who both make amazing food, just that their style of cooking is a bit different? Either way it is a... read more

Popped in a late afternoon and fell in love with U- in Balluta Bay and got church and sea view though I chose to sit inside. Fantastic nice different bistrot with a cosmopolitan feeling! Good fresh food, several options of wine from the world, skilled serviceminded staff and remarkable wisdom on the wall or different tiles with messages. I just... More

Had late breakfast here.i took the English breakfast and it was great!place is just in front of the sea but there is the street in between. Staff is really kind and professional and plate was simply perfect. The only thing I have to suggest is to be faster with service because waiting was a bit too long. This bistrot is... More

We are staying in the area and ate there yesterday. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, especially that as a vegetarian, I really fancied a mushroom risotto, they agreed to make me one without any prompting and I can honestly say it was the best risotto I have ever tasted! They gave us complimentary bread and home made hummous... More

Holidaying in Malta, stayed at Hilton (see seperate review). Spent a lovely evening at U Bistrot on the seafront of St Julians with friends. Although there are heaters outside we opted to eat inside as it was a cold evening. Staff were wonderfully helpful, recommending dishes as required. Very attentive service. Good food. Great atmosphere. Think that sums it all... More

This is a small but fantastic restaurant which has a wide menu and a good selection of wines and the prices are reasonable. Recommend booking a table as it is small and very popular with the locals.

Our first day in Malta was rounded off with a lovely meal in the U Bistro. Friendly and very efficient staff with really good food made us glad to have arrived. A varied menu, good value, comfortable and clean. A return visit? Certainly

Great restaurant next door to a hotel - Just spotted while going for a walk - It has a good range of meals that range from breakfast, pizza's, pasta, salads, fish and meats. The staff are ready helpful and happy to modify meals to personal tastes.

I enjoy getting my salads from here, they are all so fresh and colourful! A real pleasure! Makes eating healthy food actually something to look forward to! The staff are all so nice and often do they strike conversation. I believe that most items on the menu are very good indeed. This is a nice place by the sea for... More
