Lovely

Went here for my birthday with my boyfriend who had booked a surprise place. Was quiet as was in January however was still a nice atmosphere. Good choice of wine and cocktails. Food was absolutely beautiful, with nice extra touches. Would definitely recommend and return.

My husband and i went for our anniversary and were really impressed. The food was excellent, well presented and tasty. I had the mackerel to start and it was to die for, my husband had soup and really enjoyed it. The main courses were excellent as were the desserts. A really good atmosphere and courteous staff enhanced the experience. We... More

I took my partner to Bijou for our anniversary last month, and it was the most pleasant eating experience we've had in Carlisle. I booked in advance and we were sat at a nice little table for two away from the other patrons. The service was great, the food absolutely beautiful and also a great playlist music wise! Before coming... More

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
