Nestled in the corner of Balluta bay beneath le meridian hotel, this place has sublime views of the bay and church. The atmosphere is laid back and the staff were attentive but not intrusive. The king prawn linguine was great, well cooked and enjoyable. One of the nicer places we ate in whilst in Malta and would love to back... More

I live in Malta, so I've done the rounds trying to find different places for a good brunch, and always end up coming here. Breakfast is served until 12, so at the weekend we booked a table for 11.30, outside, it's only sunny out front in the morning, necessary in spring (now), a god-send when it's roasting hot in summer....

When it first opened the 4ange on the menu was more extensive, it is clearly popular which I think has made it a little complacent. I had the ravioli mushrooms which were over powered by the cheese source, the wife the gnocchi again overpowered by the cheese sourse

We had misjudged our timing and were late looking for somewhere to have a fairly quick meal. The bistro was small and all tables occupied but thankfully we were accommodated after a very short wait. Friendly staff dealt with our requested food to good time and we so enjoyed the experience that we came back a couple of times. We... More

We stayed at the hotel near by this restaurant and wanted to eat there, it's alway filled booked. So you get an idea... it must be good. And finally, the last day of our stay, we had breakfast there. The food was nice, staff were friendly. Do reserve the table in advance to avoid disappointment.

This place gets great reviews but I found the sea bass was wonderful but the pasta particularly the gnocchi was hard with a heavy sauce.breakfast are great and good value.its in a setting to die for,so give it a go but don't bother with the gnocchi.

Came across U Bistro, Balluta Bay, St Julians by accident. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. Risotto, Pasta, Sea Bass and Ravioli were ordered by us. It was cooked fresh. The restaurant itself was beautiful and it seemed the in place to be with locals. Very good.

The burgers here were boasted as being "the best on the island" by a handful of friends and colleagues. There's easily 3 better places within a stones throw distance from here that does better burgers. Can't slate the place too much though as I've only been once. Food was so so. Service was great. Very well looked after by our... More

We had decided to check out some restaurants with good reviews from TripAdvisor. U Bistrot was one of them and I'm glad we could find a table, and furthermore, a table outside where we could watch the world go by and enjoy the views of Balluta Bay. Our very young waiter was very kind and attentive and helped us with... More
