During our stay in Negombo, every day we had been to this wonderful restaurant.
Beautiful interior, clean, well-mannered and friendly staff.
Great fish and grilled pepper steak.
Charming hostess.

“excellent fillet steaks”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Ambience isn't great here and the decor very dated and heavy. It could certainly do with a revamp or at least a coat of paint. The menu is essentially Western with a good selection of dishes. Have dined here over several years and the food is always good. The fillet steaks in particular are as good as I have ever eaten served with a variety of different sauces and can be highly recomended. Fried bananas with honey and ice cream make a fiiting end to a meal.

“Warm and welcoming”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Dolly, the owner of the restaurant, has the personal touch. She goes out of her way to chat to all guests and make them welcome. She also keeps a sharp eye on the waiting staff to ensure that they maintain a good standard of service. We both ordered the seafood platter and found it enjoyable, but somewhat disappointing, as the lobster was overcooked to the point of dryness. This was a pity, as otherwise everything was good. The dish came with chips and a truly delicious coleslaw. We ended with Dolly's exquisite lemon cake and ice cream, which was also well worth tasting.

“Best Filetsteak and Schnitzel we`ve ever had!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

In opposite of the Topaz Beach Hotel you find this charming restaurant ( swiss owner ). The staff was very friendly and helpful. After all the rice and curry we were happy to see this fantastic menu ( low budget ). We ordered the lobster and prawncocktail as starter, which was delicious. Then we`ve had the filetsteak with rösti and the schnitzel. I think that was the best Steak I´ve ever had!!! And the Schnitzel was perfect. I am german, so I know what I´m talking :-)
The time we were there the owner was abroad, but the staff is doing a very good job. They must be well trained by the owner.
Whenever we will be back to Sri Lanka, we come again and we can highly recommend this restaurant

“Delicious European food!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Having eaten a lot of Sri Lankan food during our trip we were craving something different so tried Bijou. Both the meals we ordered were excellent! Authentic flavour, tender meat, good-sized servings and absolutely delicious. Hihgly recommended!
