I will admit we came to this restaurant because of the other reviews, and we were certainly not disappointed. The staff was notably and impressively attentive, we commented several times that the service level was very high. The pepper steak, however, was absolutely brilliant. After three weeks in Sri Lanka I wanted a nice steak, and it was tasty, cooked... More

Was first introduced to Bijou by my friend Dave. He took me there to have the beef steak, claiming it to be the best he has had in Sri Lanka. It was good. I have been there a couple of times since, and can't complain. My guess is the other food on the menu too is good. The staff are... More

The steaks, jumbo prawns and chicken are always cooked to perfection and the owner Dolly regularly comes to chat. I have tried other... More

This small establishment became our preferred, but not the only venue, for our 3 week stay in Negombo because We were so impressed by the quality of the Fillet steaks on our first visit. We were so impressed that we even asked Dolly, the owner, if the steaks were imported. Dolly makes a point of welcoming new visitors, which is... More

I only tried the wiener schnitzel here, but it was great. My friend had a pepper steak which he said was really good. After eating here, you can walk across the street to Dolce Vita for some great coffee.

A place to have some good quality food. The staff are friendly and most of the time the owner her self is around to help of on picking whats good. The place tend to get a little crowded but its all worth it. Try their steaks and the grilled fish.

Too much people, Long wait. Good food but much more expensive than in other places with the same quality level. I wouldn't advice to visit it.
