“Good food, lovely setting”
Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

I had the beef carpaccio as a starter which was very good. The addition of some bruschetta was a nice touch. Sadly my wife's salad was the only disappointment amongst the four of us. What she thought was walnuts turned out to be overlooked pieces of chicken and the sauce was very bland. My linguini and scampi done with a nice kick of chilli was excellent. My wife had the chicken livers which had a love taste and tan to them. The wine list is not very long and not altogether balanced. We will be back in the future as in addition to the good food the restaurant has lovely views over the canals in the marina.

“Oustanding service & cuisine”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

We had the most perfect lunch yesterday with possibly the best & friendliest service ever experienced by Faviela our waitron. I had the Proscuitto pizza which had an excellent crispy thin crust & yummy crema balsamica drizzled over it. Two had the Pork Scallopini which was outstanding & our other friend had one of the specials of the day Scampi with linguini. The setting of this restaurant is world class overlooking the azure waters of the St Francis Bay canals. As locals we will definitely be back.

“Another special evening made very special.”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We have been to Caffe Bijoux before but decided to take friends with us for a special night on the Canals of St Francis Bay.
As before the reception, service and the food wwere outstanding and we could not have asked for better. The prices are reasonable and the presentation top class.
The evening was somewhat spoilt by two groups of extremely noisy diners who did not take other people into account. It was however high-season with many boisterous holiday-makers.
The ambiance and the quality of food will definite see us back to enjoy the more relaxed out-of-season times.

“Lovely addition to St Francis bay”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

We popped in one afternoon in November and received a very warm welcome. The setting is superb, overlooking the canals, and the ambience is exceptional, with a cosy, arty interior and a crisply modern outdoor veranda section. The small menu is of the bistro variet with the emphasis on italian and sushi, and very well priced - particularly the excellent house wine. We think this will be a winner in the christmas season, and deservedly so.
