I've visited bijou for a few years now and love it. It has a great vibe and staff are very friendly. We usually go for breakfast is say it is the best breakfast in Edinburgh. The food is always delicious, not greasy at all and very reasonably priced. Love the place

This is one of my many trips here. Great mix of classic and modern touches in the food, nice to see that it's all kept very seasonal and changes often. They also do a great breakfast!

A little gem of a find. 2 mins walk from our hotel after a long day. Met with a fantastic welcome. And the food was just amazing! Best steak ever... came away feeling like we had high end dining in the comfort of your own home. Yummy wine 2.
