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.

we visited last week for a special occasion. We were quite disappointed as the only menu available was the xmas one. The menu is very limited with nothing special on it such as duck, beef or venison. The starters were quite nice but very small piece of fish. The mains were disappointing as they were very over seasoned with far... More

A friend had his 21st here. Really great food and exceptional service. There was a big party of us and the quality of food all round was excellent, along with the attentiveness of the staff.

Visited on Thursday night for my fiancé's birthday. The food was first class, made even better by the excellent service. Will certainly visit again.

This is the second time we have been to the Resturant for a meal. Unfortunately my impression from the first visit was duplicated on the second. The food was over seasond (especially the potato) but reasonable. The tables are ridiculously small to the point that on a table for two it is not possible to have a chilled bottle of... More

Recently booked for my partners birthday as we have visited a number of times and both food and service have always been very good. The starters took an hour to arrive, I appreciate that freshly prepared food takes time, but not sixty minutes for relatively straightforward starters. When the starters arrived they were however very good. The main courses sadly... More

Had lunch with a group of friends here yesterday. First impressions: pleasant ambiance, welcoming staff. Wine list: comprehensive with a range of prices to suit all pockets. Food: having to wait suggests that the food is all freshly cooked, not micro-waved. My battered fish was good but I really enjoyed the timbale of crushed potato! Steak salad was great and... More

Great location, fantastic atmosphere and quality food. It has been a while since we last visited Bijou and if possible it is even better. The service and quality of the food is quite simply outstanding. There is an addition of a chefs table however we did not eat there this time, that said we definitely will on our next evening...

I was with a party of 17 for Saturday evening dinner. The visit was superb, right from booking the table on the Bijou website which was very easy. Then received a friendly telephone call from Matt who explained the menu and that he only required the pre-order the day before our visit. On arrival we were met by Inga and... More
