I visit Malta once every year for work and have been coming to U Bistrot each time on these trips. It is not often that a restaurant manages to maintain consistent and outstanding quality in terms of its food and service. A small and intimate establishment, U Bistrot always does. The food is super fresh and delicious- especially the fish... More

This restaurant is in a lovely spot near Ballutta Bay. The food is delicious, the service is good. It's best to book to ensure a seat. I recommend the chocolate fondant.

U Bistrot serves breakfast as well as lunch and dinner. Offering a mix of healthy (such as interesting crunchy salads) versus more regular options (such as burgers and pasta dishes), U Bistrot provides tasty dishes. My favorite dish here is the carbonara pasta dish - both creamy and light (or at least, it feels light!). It's a good place to... More

We've been here twice for breakfast and think that it's the best in the area - all good quality produce and a nice atmosphere with the chance to sit outside when the sun is shining. On both occasions, the staff were really helpful in getting us a table, even though we hadn't booked. In fact it's probably necessary to book... More

Sorry to say but was disappointed with the burger. Never had such a greasy burger that could not have a second bite ,grease was dripping from my lips and the roast potatoes where so oily that I had at least a spoon full of oil in the ramekin. The waiter was very polite and asked me if I wanted something... More

My meal was delicious, got the English brekkie. The hash browns were some of the best I've tasted. Service was great. Staff friendly and smiling. And I got to enjoy it outside in the sun. It was a great start to the day.

Ate dinner at this restaurant, food was excellent, fresh, tasty and varied. Beautiful bread also. Very flexible with the kids and staff very friendly. Great Cisk local beer and lovely burgers. Good for casual dining and lovely looking breakfast menu.

This was a last minute decision for us, but we're glad we made it! Extremely friendly staff, lovely oceanside location, cosy atmosphere inside that managed to never get too loud, despite all tables being full. We had the salmon ravioli and the fettuccine carbonara, both of which were excellent quality. Adding in a cocktail and liqueur each, and we were... More
