Went here tonight on a recommendation. . Where did they get the picture of the food icon? This was an awful restaurant with the worst service and food. Arrived 745pm. Ordered then told sorry no steak. Ordered chicken. Sorry no chicken. One hour later they brought us a small side plate of sauerkraut which was compiled from veg not fresh. Two young waiters serving around 50 people who were only given drinks at speed. It was clear that the staff in kitchen could not cope. I looked in kitchen entrance and can only describe the staff in there as lacking in even basic hygiene ...please read this owners and take heed before someone gets ill. Avoid at your peril!

A must try place if you are in Negambo. Their fondue is great. and the items on the menu is excellent. A meal cost above average but fully worth the price you pay.
We had dinner at Bijou, the place was packed, and the two waiters on duty( just two) were very active. They don't note the order but take on memory. Awesome , didn't make a mistake on a single item. Madushan who served us was excellent. Not a place to have a quick meal , have enough time to enjoy the experience

We went for a meal here on the recommendation of others and ordered a variety of main dishes from the menu.

Service was very slow and took a long time for the food to arrive. Food was disappointing in the meat was very over cooked and the chips greasy.

All in all, a rather disappointing and average meal at best.

Very nice selection of international dishes. Reasonable prices and clean place. I wish though it was on the other side of the street as sitting outside next to the busy, dirty and noisy road is not very nice - when there is a beach 50 metres away. And sitting inside is a bit of a waste when the weather is good. But definitely a recommended place for some good food for reasonable money.
