Having been here for on and off for past 10 years, two years ago, the food became bad, and service even worse. However deciding to give it a last chance, found the same menu, but food cooked perfect, very hot and well served. New smiling waiters are more attentive, and helpful, and make it a pleasant dining experience

i know Bijou restaurant since the last 20 years and earlier it used to be one of the best food outlets in negombo.
recently my wife and me were there and got very dissapointed.quick handling was never a topic in Bijou's..but this time we waited more than 1 hour for the food,the service extremly slow and the waiters very rude and unfriendly.it took almost 30 min.to take the order and the mullet we got served i suppose was longer in the freezer than in the ocean.the boiled vegetable as a sidedish was completley overcooked and preheated in the microwave.
we complained to the owner and she tried with artificial friendlyness to compensate us with a free espresso.we also noticed that Bijou's is the most expensivest restaurant on negombo beach.in future we will avoid this restaurant.

My wife and family recently visited this restaurant and found the service to be excellent. My wife wanted fried rice with chicken, but wanted lots of chicken. So the restaurant only offered, chicken with boiled rice or chicken fried rice which is a side dish. The waiter said for me to order the chicken with rice and he will make it with vegetable fried rice, without any extra charge.

The food came, chicken Maryland was out of this world and my wife had loads of chicken and a very generous rice portion.

They also gave us free access to the wifi which came in usefull, as hotel where we were staying charge 1000LKR a day for Wifi code.

We will definitely visit again!
