Visited a couple of times and its really a nice way to spend a Sunday evening. The owner is also very sweet. The food is very delicious. We had a variety of very good looking and delicious meals. The presentation was to point and so was the taste. I would recommend it indeed.

We have visited restaurant with a Sri Lankan friend on several occasions (we come to Sri Lanka regularly). Good selection of Sri Lankan and Western food (steak is excellent). Friendly, efficient staff.

Such a good restaurant which steaks you no where can find in Negombo. Friendly waiters and very fast and of course Dolly, the owner of the restaurant. She is such a nice lady and has time for every guest. When you stay in Negombo you must have some dinners here.

Ordered lobster as a treat. All three people who ordered it got what can only described as old boot leather. Such a waste of a tasty animal. But the worst part was when we payed. The staff decided that on top of their service charge, which was 1200rs, they decided not to give our 1500rs change back. We had to... More

If you look at this place from the outside you will not be impressed by this Swiss restaurant but don't be fooled as it has superb steaks and pork but when you go here you want to get something different everytime. You will not be disappointed..

Food here is pretty good though not fantastic. Local devilled children v tasty but served with a big pile of boring white rice. Veggie gratins are good. Kids menu ok. Problem was only one waiter on duty who struggled in the heat to keep up. Toilets are very scuzzy. These need serious attention. No sign of Swiss owner. Wondering if... More

Had second thoughts before coming here first over other happening places but happened to be a very a good place where you can have a tummy full! What I learnt from local friends is food you find here got authentic taste ( which is true) and many other famous places had taste lit bit of local .

A place I know and visit occasionally for the last 12 years. Bijou, owned by a Swiss lady named Dolly, is located on the beach road in Negombo. You can choose to sit outside (2 small and 1 big table) or inside the restaurant which is facilitated with ceiling fans. The place is maintained in a tidy condition. The food... More
