    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 !

    It wasn't great. Everything was completely cold and my chips weren't cooked. They were cooked through as if they had been boiled but didn't swim to be fried at all. My coffee (espresso) was undrinkable. It was so strong it made my eyes water. How hard is it to make coffee? The service was excellent amd the ambience was very pleasant but the food was terrible. Absolutely not worth almost ninety euros (with wine). Shame really.

    Overall a pleasent experience. Only slight disappointment was crab linguine contained only crab claws and no other crabmeat. Service was excellent. Prices are just a bit too expensive for the slightly limited menu choices. Could do with expending menu marginally by two extra starters and two main courses.

    Bijou is my favourite "go to" restaurant for occasion dining. My niece was in Dublin and this was my restaurant of choice for our meal. She loved everything about it as well. I also see the same faces staffwise each time I'm there and to me the continuity is always a good sign. I look forward to being there again in the near future.

    A rare example of a Dublin restaurant that checks all the boxes in terms of price, menu style, service, and quality of food. The ambiance is also good. I hope they never close.
