    I needed somewhere to eat in an unfamiliar neighbourhood and Bijou Bistro turned out to be a great choice. It was Saturday and the place was full of happy customers, tended to by a very friendly group of staff. My braised beef was delicious and the chocolate tart even better. The wine list is extensive and well-stocked with affordable pleasures.

    The service at Bijou is very professional, courteous and friendly. The food is always excellent from start to finish. The ambience lends itself to all kinds of get togethers with families, couples and friends all eating in harmony. It’s our favourite restaurant in Dublin.

    Food, including Coeliac options excellent, portions generous, eg lots of crab meat in the pasta. Table ideal for 4, tad cramped for 5 and with fairly high noise/music level meant conversation only with those sat next to you. Service excellent, Vermintinno Tuscan white fantastic flavour and refreshing. Decent value at Euro50 per person 2 course dinner, drinks, service. We keep coming back.

    Always have the lovely featherblade, opted for chicken last night. Disappointed, bit bland. Service excellent, lovely staff. This is not the restaurant’s fault but we were delighted with our outdoor table. Only problem was SuperValu truck was unloading nearby for most of our time dining, with a lot of noise. So indoors next time !
