For a long time now, bijou has been considered one of the better dining experiences in town. Great food, great service and the perfect atmosphere for a quiet or romantic night out. Make sure to call ahead for a reservation, especially during the theatre season. Dinner for 2 with drinks will run from $90-150,but worth every cent.

We loved Bijou last year, after scrambling for a place to eat and randomly finding this place, and decided to have dinner here again during our annual Stratford trip. Bijou is 2 for 2! Farm-to-table food, creative but accessible menu, delicious from apps to desserts, fantastic bartender, consistent quality, and just a fun and personable team. What more could you... More

Our family if 5 enjoyed an amazing meal at the Bijou restaurant in Stratford in mid August 2016. All meals are fresh and offer ingredients that are grown locally. For a reasonable price you get an appetizer, an entrée and a dessert. Everyone raved about their meal. The staff also makes a point of giving you time to enjoy your... More

We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this restaurant and will be returning in a few weeks with a group of people for a special evening. It is not a large space however the service and quality more than make up for it not being a "grand" looking seating. From the moment we sat down we felt we were treated as "special"... More

We had been to Bijou a handful of times over the years. Our last visit (prior to this one) left us underwhelmed. After a few years away and hearing about a new owner, we decided to give Bijou a try once again. We are so glad that we did! The interior was spruced up, and in was nice to be... More

Located on Wellington St. behind city hall very close to the Avon and Studio theatres. Seats 18 in front and 5 at the bar. The back room is rather austere, also has a nice little private dining room that could seat 6 comfortably. Have a look at the 2 costume drawings from days gone by. Nice wine list with knowledgeable... More

This was a high quality restaurant that serves a three course fixed price menu. The courses are an appetizer, main course and dessert. Drinks are extra. There are options available for all tastes: vegetarian, poultry, fish and meat. All ingredients are local.
