It's very difficult to find good stake in Srilanka. This place has the best stake. I tried beef stake. The potatoes were mixed with bacon. So it was very tasty. Service is very good.only thing lacking is view of the beach. But you can forget about the view when you start testing this amazing food. One of my favourite restaurants... More

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

It's really difficult to find great steaks in Sri Lanka, they are not big Steak eaters and most of their beef comes in cubes and goes in a curry so unless you are dining at a 5* hotel or specialist Steak house you are likely to be very disappointed if you order steak and will likely end up with something...

I travel to Negombo 3 times per year and always eat at Bijou. As my wife and I only have small appetites we have one meal between us which the restaurant is more than happy to provide. 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.
