“Great little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Great bistro food and byob for 2.50. Portions interestingly sized can get 1, 2, or 3 pieces so have everything as starter or main.

“Wish we could have stayed longer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Feeling cold waiting for the Edinburgh Moonwalk to start we chanced upon Bijou on Saturday evening. James provided us with a cheery smile, witty banter and carry out coffees. He was so friendly we returned after we finished at 3.45 a.m. and his Mum had just baked muffins so I took one home for my husband. He said it was easily the best muffin he's ever had! Would had like to have been around longer to try the tempting menu and will definitely visit the next time we're in Edinburgh

“Exactly what we wanted!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

My fiance and I went to Bijou for Saturday morning brunch. The place was buzzing but the staff were very friendly and attentive. We both had eggs royale, which were delicious - really good value too. Looked at the menu for lunch and evening meals and would love to go back to try more of the dishes! Would thoroughly recommend this gem of a place!
