Good food, easy atmosphere, polite stuff. Eggs Benedict and Royale were very tasty, full Bijou breakfast was great, hot chocolate was super. Highly recommended!!!

We were at a loose end, and decided to visit Bijou because we haven't been in a while. What attracts us is the relaxed atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. Starters: courgette flowers with ricotta, and lightly battered. Moules mourire. Mussels to die for. Please excuse me if I go on at some length, because they were big and juicy [the... More

I was looking for somewhere that served decent food and also welcoming to children. This certainly delivered on both, the food was really nice, soup of the day was delicious, service was excellent, nice atmosphere, very friendly, good quality food at reasonable price, will definitely return.

Food, wine and service was fantastic. Lovely, friendly staff. Is the local restaurant for friends and when I called back in to get them a gift voucher the staff were so helpful, even hand delivered the voucher thank you. Wonderful evening

We are staying in Leith for a week at The Festival and have already had a great breakfast and an excellent evening meal at this cafe/restaurant on a corner facing Leith Links - former shop premises, with large windows, with good views over the Links - so bistro style really, open all day and filling different dining needs. Although we... More

Despite living in Leith for years, we'd always gone by and never gone in. Rectified that today and I'm just sorry it's taken us so long! 5 of us, including a 2 year old went for a casual Sunday lunch. Service was fab, atmosphere welcoming and cosy, just how you want your local. And the food was beautiful. I had... More

Apart from the fact that the food is always first class, the craic is always great, and the takeaway Bijou in a Box service always delicious and great value, Bijou is also THE best little neighbourhood food place. I live around the corner. I fancied some shortbread with a cup of tea (made, at home, on my desk). The very... More

What a find. This is a great little place with great food and service. We were driving back from the Recycling Depot at Seafield Road on Sunday doing our bit for the environment when we decided to stop off at this little Bistro as parking was available outside and a friend had said it was good. We were not disappointed.... More

A lovely little restaurant with superb food and excellent staff. The descriptions of the wines in the Bijou's Wine List are worth the visit in themselves. Highly recommended, excellent value for money

A great meal in a lovely small restaurant. The menu may be limited but there is a good selection of starters and mains which would suit all pockets The staff are very attentive whilst not being obtrusive. Wine is sold but there is also BYOB which has a small corkage. I would advise booking as there are not many tables... More
