Bijou is great!! There's no other way to say it, just amazing. Food is out of this world - tasty, well cooked & by the happiest chef the world has ever seen....paupiettes of soul stuffed with scallops in a dill sauce - I didn't know what it was either but I do now & all the better for it!!!

Visited with a friend to have breakfast. Breakfast was sausages in a roll with tea for me. Roll with sausage was lovely, really well cooked and hot! Thoroughly recommend it!

The customer service here was excellent from the moment I arrived everything was done in a very friendly and efficient manner throughout. The food was great quality and reasonably priced too. A few bus routes 12,25 & 21 handily stop very close by. I look forward to returning in future. thedealhunter

Tiny little place but so good. We went here for a birthday breakfast and it was definitely the right choice. I have to come back if I am in Edinburgh again.

What does not normally to mind when the words 'work Christmas lunch' are mentioned is an intimate and friendly neighbourhood restaurant with excellent food. We hit the jackpot! The place is indeed bijou, the staff are casual in the right way, and the food was great: I had scallops as a starter, which were fresh and perfectly cooked, with a... More

Went for a meal with friend and it was really delicious but the waiter didn't seem very experienced and took away our bread basket before we had even finished and when we finished our starter he came out a few minutes later with main course which which was far too quick. There was just a feeling of being rushed. The... More

Lunch with friends today, one of many visits to Bijou over the past couple of years. The seasonal menu offers something different and delicious on each occasion.
