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

My husband and I have recently returned from a 5-night stay in Bermuda (our first visit there) and loved everything about the island. Everything, that is, apart from the high cost of living, including eating out in restaurants. So when we read the reviews for Bistro J, most of which draw attention to the reasonably priced set menu, we decided... More

I've recently eaten at Bistro J twice, and both times the experience was great. Bermuda prices tend to be quite high, but this little tucked away restaurant has great food and a nice ambiance all at a really good price. The menu changes frequently/daily, but it seems like it is set so that you can get an appetizer, dinner and... More

Bistro J is a lovely, little restaurant tucked away on Chancery Lane. The food is absolutely delicious and the service is great. Interesting to note, the food is made in the same kitchen as the upmarket restaurant, Port O Call, which is just below it. So, you get upmarket food at a lesser price. The only reason that I have...
