    We are returning "regulars". We always are greeted with a warm and friendly smile. All staff are really well liveried and so pleasant and helpful. Mushroom soup was delicious and my wife had Caesar salad. We both had chicken for mains and super. Lovely flavour and a very mild sauce. Plates were cleaned. Coffee for dessert. Another excellent experience. We will return.

    I have dined in the Bijou a number of times over the past few months and each time was extremely happy with the food, ambience and service. I was there again last night to celebrate my husband's birthday and we both said it was one of the best dining experiences we've had in a long time. One of a restaurant's most important assets is its staff and the staff there are exceptional.

    Gorgeous evening for two of us at this restaurant. Really good food, particularly the duck breast, which was perfectly cooked, nice and pink and moist. Very good wine list as well. But the best thing was the service. Amongst the best I've experienced in Dublin. Very attentive, speedy, always on hand, but not intrusive. I will definitely be back.
