After popping in on Easter Monday I was reminded of the fact that I jeep forgetting to write a wee review. Bijou is another one of those tiny little cafe/restaurant/bistro that Edinburgh seems to have a good few of. I've been there several times for breakfast and lunch and without fail the food is always great. I'm a sucker for... More

Visited Bijou with family to celebrate my son being awarded his PhD. It was a fabulous end to a lovely weekend and finished the celebrations off in fitting style. Atmosphere was very pleasant, the food excellent and the staff welcoming and friendly.

My partner and I were very impressed indeed on our first visit to Bijou. The fact that many of the dishes are available in two portion sizes is a fantastic idea which allows you to sample more of the menu. We can heartily recommend the ox cheek and the deep fried hens egg and suggest that you also sample the... More

We went back on Saturday the 22nd of February. The food was brilliant as usual and the Ox cheeks amazing. What makes this place so good is the friendly staff. If the owner James could bottle and sell it he would make a fortune! We had such a great laugh. See you soon Jim

James and the team really know how to create a good menu and look after customers. I love this place and the food is amazing. Good concept of the same dishes in different sized portions. Kids are welcome but the menu isn't as child friendly as it could be despite paper and pencils being available to occupy them. A bit... More

I was due to go here with a few friends and looked online- was not overwhelmed by the menu online at all but when we went in there was an ample choice of specials. The owner was there serving- he is great fun, genuine, we had a last minute addition to our group which he was awesome about. The food... More

What more can I say...tasty food, nice selection and two portion sizes on many items so you can sample a couple of their delicious dishes without feeling guilty :) A little hidden gem!

Friendly staff, tasty food and good value. The venison burger was excellent. More of an upmarket café than a restaurant, having said that I've only been at lunchtime. I'll definitely be back to try the evening menu.

Dined here with 8 friends last night and was enthusiastic about both the food and service. The waitress was charming; the choice of courses was extensive with some quite unusual dishes. Best of all one could 'pick and mix' by ordering small (bijou) portions of one course or one as a starter followed by a main. Wine can be bought... More
