A "good restaurant", "excellent for kids", where the "atmosphere is excellent" with an "outstanding view of the port".

The 516 has always been synonymous with Patrick Spiteri. He has used this number several times in various outlets he has managed and operated. It was now the time to add the word Bistro to this number to better define the outlet and the genuine food that is offered.
At Bistro 516 you can choose from various starters, pasta (home-made or not), rice, meat, poultry & fish. Bistro 516 can also serve mixed platters. Gluten-free or Vegetarian dishes are also available on request. Dig into one of the mouthwatering desserts.Their extensive wine list offers a variety of wines from all over the world. At Bistro 516 the setting is just right for you when seated outside to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Grand Harbour. On the other hand, should you be sitting inside, the atmosphere here is also very comfortable with “Pictures from the Past” all over the wall, depicting the Maltese way of life in the olden days. Bon Appetit!
