Your starters are really letting you down. Scallops or pork belly or something of substance would really help you. Main courses are delicious and your wine selection are brilliant but starters choices are really really poor.

Food good with nice selection. they advertise their outside area as a covered terrace with heaters. It’s a very open balcony with a pull out canopy over half of it. Heaters only on the side walls so it was FREEZING for anyone else seated outside. Pity as food was nice but would not sit outside again. Seemed v under staffed.

We were there for lunch. The main course was absolutely fine and the the soup starter was great. Such a relief that the soup was not the usual vegetable soup. One fault with the menu was the lack of starters, it seemed to be just soup.

I am sure the wine per glass was the regulation measure, but it looked miserable. I am always impressed with a restaurant that provides a decent glass of wine, especially at the price charged per glass.

We were impressed at the provision of a token birthday cake for our aunt whose birthday we were marking, she was impressed with this touching gesture.

Overall we were impressed with the meal. Thanks.

This was my first visit since pre covid. I had the featherblade beef for my mains and it was delicious as always. A side order of onion rings really complemented the dish. Covid protocols were diligently observed by staff and customers from what we saw while there. The manager and staff were all very attentive in general and again that has always been my experience in the Bijou.

Have found the food in Bijou to generally be pretty average. The basics are good but no better than any average restaurant but I’ve consistently found there is a lack of flavor in their food compared to similarly priced places. Also some of the elements of the dishes are throwbacks to the 90’s and it would seem that they just haven’t innovated and moved on.

Staff were great as always, very polite and attentive, absolutely no issues there. But wobbly old tables that feel cheap and desperately need to be replaced. In general, probably needs to be freshened up.

Overall, the quality of the food does no justify the prices whatsoever. For lunch, two mains, two sides, two coffees and water came to €60. You could get relatively high end food for that in the city centre but I would be confident in being able to get a better quality meal and experience for closer to €40-€45 easily
