The reason we ended up here was on the recommendation of a mother & daughter we struck up a conversation with while at JFK airport waiting to board to depart for BDA. Later during our trip we bumped into them (almost literally) on Front St and they had just left Bistro J and raved about it. So we decided to... More

We went there recently for a 50th birthday celebration. They have a great prix fixe menu. The food was fresh, the meal leisurely. Service was friendly. Great place for groups.

We visit Bistro J every year on holiday. Love the ambience and have overall had great meals. This year had a wonderful Wahoo dish, was sooo good and just what I was in the mood for and the prices cannot be beat. To return again next year.

It is small off a lane way in Hamilton. Italian, French influence with local flavor. Great staff, set prices-- i.e. 3 course for x$. Special theme nights-- the day after we were there was a Italian wine pairing night-- fabulous menu. Very very reasonable prices especially for Bermuda. Cozy , quiet atmosphere. Good wine list. We will make it our... More

Exceptional service, very personalized. Daily changing menu. Perfectly portioned sizes of high quality. Casual and chic. We dined here twice on our visit and Rachel (our server) not only remembered us...she remembered our drinks. Highly recommend.

Good restaurant with a prix fix menu for three courses or two? Excellent wait staff, and attentive service. First course salads were large and inventive, main course flounder was well cooked and served with rice. Lots to choose from on the menu, we had intended to go back to try some other items but didn't make it. Good value for... More

Very good prices. Varied menu. Located on very tiny lane off Front Street in Hamilton near the docks for large ships. Very friendly wait staff. Loved it.

My husband had read the reviews so we found this place in an alleyway. Glad we did. It has a prix fix chalkboard menu changing daily. That evening there wasn't something I really wanted as an option. The server/ manager accommodated me and got me a meal to my liking from the larger more formal Front St. Restaurant below which... More

I love Bistro J and make a point of eating there at least once when I'm in town. The restaurant is nestled in a little alleyway heading down to the harbour...it's easy to miss if you're not looking for it. It's one of the only places I've come across in Bermuda that offers a prix fixe menu - for $29... More

Wonderful meal and service. Save room for the sorbet. Nice wine list too. Find it hidden up the alley off Front Street for a treat
