We visited here for a weekday lunch catch up. They have a daily set menu, either 2 or 3 courses for under $30 plus tips. I chose beets and feta salad with arugula to start; the beets were perfect, not tart at all, plenty of fresh arugula with a lovely dressing. For main I had the wahoo wth couscous and... More

We have lived in Hamilton for a year and last night paid our second visit to Bistro J. We love everything about this little gem. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the menu is interesting, the prices very low for Hamilton and the service is outstanding. Love it.

Bermuda is not the cheapest place to dine but this restaurant offers great quality food at a great price. The three course menu changes daily. We ate here three times during our stay and were not disappointed. The wahoo was excellent as one the apple crumble. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I are vegetarians and we were wondering around Hamilton looking for a place for dinner and saw their chalkboard. Small but delicious menu for anyone. Cute bistro feel and a price that is hard to beat for the quality and location. We are very happy we took a chance and wondered up the small and beautiful alley... More

We found this restaurant from a local listing and gave it a try. Our lucky night! This place was lovely and the food was wonderful. You absolutely must make a reservation since the place is quite tiny. The premise is that the menu changes daily and you can get 2 courses ($25.99?) or 3 courses ($35.99?). For Bermuda, we thought...

Tucked away in an alley off Front Street, this quaint bistro is a perfect spot for a casual lunch or dinner. The restaurant consists of approximately 18 tables. The menu is limited but is sufficient for most diners. The wine list is also limited but diverse and reasonably priced compared to most places in Bermuda. The food very good indeed... More
