We enjoyed dinner at the Bijou on the Saturday of the Victoria Day long weekend and were very pleased with the prix fixe offerings. For appetizers we selected the chilled asparagus soup and the asparagus salad. Delicious! Our mains were trout and steak. Superb! For desserts, we chose the apple crumble and the assorted cheese plate. Divine! We sat in... More

After all seeing Romeo and Juliet at the Festival Theatre we had a 7pm reservation at the Bijou. We were welcomed immediately into the restaurant and shown to our very comfortable table by the front window. We received excellent service from Nick, our witty yet very professional waiter. We even met the proud owners who outlined their farm fresh menu... More

It was my first visit to Bijou. Had the venison croquettes, short ribs and pineapple tart. Portions were perfect. The amuse bouche with preserved lemon was delish. The price was more than reasonable. Will definitely be back.

Me and my girlfriends visited Stratford for a weekend getaway from Toronto and to see some plays in July of 2015. We had dinner at Bijou.. Both the food and the atmosphere was wonderful and we were very pleased with the service, as well. We had the $75 3 Course Summer Prix Fixe. The dishes were delicious and all of... More

Four couples went to this restaurant before going to see Carousel at the Avon Theater. We had made reservations but when we arrived they placed us at a long table at the back of the restaurant. The servicer was slow and although some of our friends enjoyed their dinner, my husband and I ordered an over priced, unremarkable chicken dinner... More

Bijou just topped my list of the best restaurants in Stratford. The food and service was absolutely fantastic! They grow the vast majority of their vegetables themselves and pick them daily. You can taste the difference in the freshness, especially within their salads, but also in the soups and mains. Sauces and broths are the key to making or breaking... More

We come here frequently, and simply have never had less than a memorable meal. The staff is friendly and attentive, the menu is creative, there's a lovely wine list...we just love it, and recommend it to everyone. The prix-fixe offers real value, as well.

We enjoyed an amazing dinner at Bijou Restaurant in Stratford - a nice way to celebrate spring. The Maple Walnut-Seed salad and Cornmeal Crusted Wild Cod with warm beet salad is highly recommended. Great flavours, fresh ingredients and generous portions. Always a warm welcome and atmosphere - add the nice wine selection and you are set for a perfect night!

I visited Bijou in May of 2016. My first visit was in the summer of 2012 when it had a different ownership. We were all impressed in 2012 so decided to go again on a sisters' reunion trip to Stratford in May. We all enjoyed the food but were absolutely shocked by the paucity of food on the plates. We...
