We loved the quaintness of this restaurant. The food was great. The food was a little rushed and min selection on wines (and no beer).

Bisou came highly recommended by our AirBnB host in Harpers Ferry and lived up to our expectations. The soup, salad, and entry were all notable. I may return to Harpers Ferry simply to try more items on their menu.

Staying in Harpers Ferry found this place online. You have to email the Chef/Owner to get reservations. We had a fantastic appetizer, salads and the entrees were delicious. Wine list was reasonably priced as well. Definitely will be going back when I'm in town again.

Located in a charming 1790's stone house in historic Harpers Ferry-Bolivar, Our Menu is seasonally changed to offer classic New Orleans Cajun & Creole French cuisine. We focus on, fresh, delicious, local food in a friendly and casual atmosphere. While holding true to our South Louisiana Heritage, we also have developed gluten free and allergy sensitive versions of most items. Owner & Executive Chef Kevin Plunkett, a New Orleans Native and Classically trained French Chef, is passionate about sustainability and supporting local producers whenever possible. Together with his wife Amanda, they have made a commitment to transform a little slice of West Virginia into Cajun Country with a dash of South Louisiana Hospitality and traditional New Orleans fare.
