My good friend took me to Bijou on my first ever visit to Edinburgh, she promised me a quaint cafe where the chef cooked with love and a sense of pride can be found in each dish! The experience was that and MUCH more. The staff were friendly and the wait for food wasn't long after ordering. The dishes were... More

The food is SPECTACULAR and very affordable! The wine menu gives great humor and there is a selection for everyone. I enjoyed dinner here with friends and we would certainly make this a regular spot.

The wifi password at Bijou perfectly reflects the deliciousness of the food: nom nom nom! I have made my way through every dish on the special menu (Bijou sizes of course) in one sitting on numerous occasions! Enjoying those scrumptious morsels while looking out at Leith Links and sipping on one of their specially selected wines is a perfect way... More

A great little place that will surprise you. We had a fantastic lunch with friends. It was so much more than we had expected. Very warm setting. It was alittle cold to sit outside but in summer it must be great.

This little place is pure sunshine. If you want an eating experience that will leave you literally feeling happy and satisfied then Bijou is the place to be. Wonderful people and deliciously satisfying food. It's really easy to eat and stay all day, it's that comfortable. A little treasure not to be missed when visiting Edinburgh. Will definitely look them... More

Bijou, where the food is fabulous, whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. Warm, friendly relaxed atmosphere where you can just be, and always find it an uplifting social experience, whether you are dropping in for coffee, or indulging in the full works. A true community hub, where community matters. A cool refreshing drink on a hot sticky day... or... More

Discovered by accident when looking at Google Maps - if I'm honest - for something else. We needed a pre-match meal before going to Hibs v Dumbarton ... maybe a burger and chips or something. I ended up having two "bijou" sized portions from the seasonal menu - Rabbit + mustard and tarragon + olive oil mash + courgettes, and... More

Wonderful little bistro with friendly staff, excellent music and lovely food. Was only in Edinburgh for 4 days and managed to get to eat there 3 times. The guest ale, toasties and the sticky toffee puddings were all excellent but it is the lovely staff members who really make this a great little bistro.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while waiting for our room in a nearby hotel to be ready, and couldn't be happier that we did. The food was great, the prices fair, the ambience was lovely and most of all the staff were the friendliest I've ever had. We were only staying in Edinburgh for 3 nights, but made sure to... More
