    This is not just a neighborhood gem it’s just a gem. Everything about the place is extremely special. The food , the staff and the setting. Being going here for nearly twenty years and never ever had a bad meal or a bad experience. John and the front of house team make you feel totally at home and serve you great food.

    Our first visit, although we live close-by. The food was very good and provided something worth going out for. Very nice atmosphere - at least for old foggies like us. At first no music, but shortly after we remarked on how good that was, the sound came on. Rather a pity. Service was very good but, although things were quite busy, most of the work was done by one very competent and pleasant young woman. All in all, a good if belated discovery, which we will use again.

    We enjoyed a lovely dinner -nice menu with beautifully cooked courses. We had a variety between 6 of us and all were happy with starters,mains and desserts. Ambience was lovely upstairs and service was efficient and unobtrusive. My only quibble was the price of the non alcoholic sparkling wine-€30 per bottle!!Thst said it was a very good one and I enjoyed!

    As always our family meal here was wonderful. The service is impeccable and the food is delightful. Have never been disappointed with a visit here. All tables are beautifully set and there isn’t one table i would be disappointed to be sat at. All of the family from the teenagers to the 90 year old aunt are always delighted!

    We enjoyed another excellent evening at Bijou. The crab starter was very generous and extremely tasty. The duck salad was also excellent. Two of us had the fillet steak for mains. Really fine quality meat cooked to perfection ( one medium and one well done). The side order of chips with this was very generous. The others had the fish of the day, monkfish in romanesco sauce which they really, really enjoyed. There were no sides with the fish of the day dish which was a little disappointing but side orders of fries and mash were very quickly served. We were all too full for dessert. The waiting staff at Bijou are exceptionally good, most especially Rakesh. They are so attentive, helpful and accommodating. Overall, we had a wonderful evening and are already looking forward to our next dinner at Bijou. 🌟 🌟🌟🌟🌟.
