We've recently moved near Leith Links and have passed Bijou Restaurant several times. Finally got around to booking a table for Sunday breakfast and are really delighted we did.

This is one of my many trips here. Great mix of classic and modern touches in the food, nice to see that it's all kept very seasonal and changes often. They also do a great breakfast!
