The chef was a bit late for our reservation, how could we mind when he came into the restaurant with bags of freshly bought fish and produce, he was caught up at the market! Besides, it gave us time to drink a bottle of wine! Our meals were truly one of a kind, and tailored to our needs and preferences.... More

My partner and I shared an uncomfortable evening with limited choices, fish only from effluent waters, and meat too tough to finish. One line of wine choice of no reputation. Drinks really ordinary. Thinks twice before getting trapped here.

After reading all the positive and sometimes excellent reviews, my wife and I must have struck one of those nights. The initial sit down and discussion of the meal and recommendations by Sebastion was unique however waiting almost two hours for our meals was not acceptable particularly as we had consumed a bottle and a half of red wine prior...

Found this restaurant while looking through the Lonely Planet and thought we would give it go. Sebastian did ask to look at as he had never seen it before and remarked that he actually serves more wine that it states in the book! We were the first people in the restaurant but Sebastian, the head chef, made us feel very... More

We loved Bijoux. Sebastián is a genius and his passion for cooking is contagious. His concept of improvised cuisine is great. As a result: We've had the best fish in years. Try the ones with fruits (kiwi, maracuya) and chickpeas or the fish with nuts. The combination of the spices is incredibly tasty. We loved our first dinner so much,... More

I can safely say that my girlfriend and I are food lovers, but more importantly we love to see people that enjoy sharing what they love with others. We have never experienced anything like this. I am sure Sebastian has the dishes in his mind already and guides you towards those options, but they are too good to say anything... More

My boyfriend and I went here last Thursday because Epif has been closed for some weeks now. I had read previous Trip Advisor reviews and seen that some people were disappointed so I was a little hesitant. However, overall it was a pretty great experience. Weirdly, on a Thursday night we were the only couple there so we had the... More

I, as a local, had read such nice reviews from this restaurant, but never really got the chance to go there 'till today. I was aware of the system that they use there: the chef comes to your table, sits down with you, explains that the idea of the restaurant is improvising things according to what the customer wants but...

Amazing experience. No menu. The chef sits down with you and gives you options with todays fresh ingredients. The food was incredible.

As mentioned, the restaurant does not work with a menu but is based on a "market concept". The chef came to our table and asked us what flavors we like, so that he may create something using today's fresh seasonal ingredients to suit our tastes. Luckily, he suggested a couple of dishes that we loved!!! One was a type of... More
