poor service

staff not interested in customer needs only their own chat, food middle of the road and not all meals available even though it was only 12.30 lunch time.

Very stylish. Have only been in for coffee and a scone, both of which were delicious. Service and price good. Lots of pleasant chatter as seems to be a good meeting place. Minor gripe- serviettes for coffee are too small.

We had a lovely dinner in December but I haven't been back since. I think as a vegetarian the lunch would be better suited to my tastes so I will make the effort for a return visit. I love a posh restaurant, nice wine list,great service and a relaxing atmosphere but I've often found that in such a fine dining... More

We met up with a friend who was in town for the day and the Bijou was recommended as a good venue for lunch. The menu was an ideal mix of full meals and sandwiches. My wife opted for a starter portion of the salmon risotto, our friend chose one of the specialty sandwiches and I chose the soup and... More

We went to Bijou for only the second time and thoroughly enjoyed our meal again. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and ambience, made even nicer by the very polite and professional staff. We both enjoyed our starters, mains and wine (no room for puds!) and my only criticism would be that I'd have liked to have seen the menu... More

The front of house staff looked after us superbly without being over intrusive, all in all it was a... More

We were attending a show at the Sands Centre in Carlisle and decided to try out the Bijou at a friends suggestion. The food was good though not exceptional, MY friends starter of chestnut and mushroom Risotto was fine and a decent size portion . I found my Pork cheek to be a little chewy but not overly so, but...

Festive catchup with friend did not disappoint :) Service was great, the food was fantastic and the wine was good! Steak melted in the mouth and the chocolate parfait was truly delicious. Looking forward to our next visit, this is Carlisle fine dining at its best.
