Service was very efficient and friendly. The white chocolate ice cream is to die for. I would certainly recommend it.

Bistro J was a wonderful find in Hamilton. The menu changed on a daily basis. Ambiance at the small bistro was cozy and it was affordable! I recommend it to anyone who wants fresh good food and a break from pub fare.

I wish more restaurants were like this place. A daily-changing, innovative menu from a chef that clearly knows what she or he is doing.
