Good position and good fish food. Waiters are friendly and relaxing atmospheare around you. It is a good idea to try the fish of the day cooked in all matters. It is placed few minutes walk to spinola bay and st.julian.

“Dinner”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Superb location but very disappointing food. Perhaps what we chose. Staff are very friendly and service is good but it cannot say the same for what was dished out!

“Fantastic food ”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

As someone who's not a big fan of a five star dining experience due to small portions but at this restaurant you get just the right amount for the average sized stomach.

The starters have a limited variety with only three single persons options . However that's not to say that they aren't nice, they are.

For me I personally ate the carpaccio for the starter and for someone who isn't a big fan of salads and raw meats, ( basically the carpaccio ) this starter changed my view on this style of food and whilst I can't do all of the critiquing where I comment on all the flavour combinations, I can say that it tasted really nice the Parmesan for me just made everything too bitter but the rest of the carpaccio was good enough for 1/3 of the plate to be cleared between glances of strangers.

And for the mains I had the Maltese rabbit. This was my second time eating Maltese rabbit and whilst I can't draw a direct comparison as the first time was a few years ago, I can say that it tasted delightful the meat was tender enough to stay on the fork but it could still melt in the mouth.

It was refreshing to see roasted potatoes replacing chips as they get monotonous when most meals are served with chips and salad.

Speaking of salads the ones at U bistrot are delicious with visibly crisp lettuce leaves, juicy peppers and seasoned just right for the average pallet.

And for desserts whilst I didn't get to try them they looked delicious and we're well presented.

In conclusion U bistro is the best restaurant I've been to this year the food was 5 star quality with pub grub portions and it is all presented neatly on slate or wooden boards when practical and when it's not they are presented on elegant white crockery. So all in all five stars.
