I've visited bijou for a few years now and love it. It has a great vibe and staff are very friendly. We usually go for breakfast is say it is the best breakfast in Edinburgh. The food is always delicious, not greasy at all and very reasonably priced. Love the place

This is one of my many trips here. Great mix of classic and modern touches in the food, nice to see that it's all kept very seasonal and changes often. They also do a great breakfast!

The short version: So to sum it up. Shouty owner, feel like we were taken in even though he knew he could serve us in time, didn't live up to the reviews and the food wasn't good The long version: Called ahead to check there and was a table for 2. He told us they were busy and asked if... More
