Our experience at UBistrot

UBistrot is a small restaurant located right in the curve of Balluta Bay. It strikes the pedestrian’s eye with the modern design and comfortable outside seating. Walking by, you will be captured by the colourful board of the current specials. The seasonal and fresh food is the main selling point of the Bistrot, and they change their menu on a regular basis, depending on what Malta has to offer in the current season. 

The ambience is casual but with style. The light wood used in the interiors lifts the mood and makes you feel comfortable at the same time. The music choice also contributes to the ambience, as they usually go for smooth jazz and low background music. In that way, you will still be able to maintain a conversation and enjoy some good music. You will not find any unnecessary clutter or decorations that are out of place. The style really fits the mostly healthy and fresh menu. As they are open all day, it’s the perfect spot to bring your friends and guests from abroad to enjoy the spectacular view of one of the nicest bays of the area along with some food and drinks. The diverse menu offers a choice for any craving.

Diverse menu with seasonal treats

The UBistrot has the perfect dish for any taste. Be it a dish with under 500 calories for guests who like to take care of their diet at any time or fresh and juicy burgers for the meat lovers, locally caught fish or pasta dishes that go well with current season and temperature. They offer dishes for vegetarians and there are various vegan options as well. You can also ask the staff, whenever in doubt about the ingredients.

Having a sweet tooth? Then complete your meal with one of the mouthwatering desserts. You’ll find a broad selection of coffees and sweets that will definitely end your experience at UBistrot on a very good note. It is a place where you can feel at home and enjoy a quality meal without any complication. On weekends they are offering a brunch menu with healthy choices and freshly prepared juices. The dishes are plated very nicely and they look visually appealing and tasty.

The vibes of the restaurant are casual but classy. The prices are fair for the portions and the quality you receive. As the prices are among the average in Malta, the quality of the food is outstanding.

Excellent service to round up the experience

The waiters are very attentive, but sometimes it might take a while to get their attention when you are sitting outside.

They have savoir-faire and they please their customers with good humour.  Often they are very professional and handle occasional mistakes and miscommunication very well.

All in all, we recommend the UBistrot. It is a safe choice for any diet and taste. The waiters are very polite, observant and delighted to make your night out, business lunch or coffee with friends, a great experience. We recommend booking a table for Friday nights, especially if you wish to eat outside.

You will be delighted by the seasonal and fresh dishes served at UBistrot.
