The food here is so bad I got a salad to start and my granny recommended me not to eat it because it smelt funky. Next I got the bijou burger and it was as dry as a leather boot it was bland and burnt I'd recommend not to come here anywhere but here we came her for a confirmation... More

We went for a family dinner just the seven of us. We opted for the early bird which was €22 for two course but the only negative I'll say is that there is a supplement charge of some sort on nearly all dishes so wish they'd just up there early bird price and stick to it. Very comfy chairs, friendly... More

A warm welcome was followed by a very enjoyable 2 course lunch, which by Dublin standards was reasonably priced. The set price lunch offered good variety and catered for most tastes. Service was very friendly and attentive.

We booked a table for Saturday night and arrived early thinking we would start the night with a cocktail in their highly publicised terrace bar but our table was ready and so we were shown to it. The restaurant was buzzing and service was quick, so quick I was still actually chewing when our plates were cleaned away after the... More

Hi Emer, I am glad you guys enjoyed our food, but I am truly sorry you didn't get the chance to taste our cocktails on the terrace. It's a pity that a lack of attention from the staff ruined your whole experience. I would love to have you back so that you give a chance to make it right and... More

Came here for a late lunch with my mother in law who was celebrating her 91st birthday. We had her 90th birthday in their private room located on the first floor which was an amazing evening. That review is here somewhere. Always great food served here with friendly staff. Excellent value. Can't go wrong, though my guest was also here... More

Dropped in after a late trip to Dublin on recommendation from my concierge. Although they were very busy, they managed to find a lovely table in good time. Service was friendly, timely and professional. Ordered the chicken in chorizo broth, and it was divine, great flavour balance, perfect for a late night meal. Great wine selection too, with helpful information... More

We are in Bijou few times a year, but most like to go for a Sunday brunch. Great atmosphere, not too busy, lovely waiting staff, talented chefs and dishes to die for, to include french toasts and bread and butter pudding.

I visited "Bijou" to try their new early bird menu offer and could not be happier with my choice. Food was great, atmosphere - cozy and service - attentive and friendly. Waitress helped me picked the wine, answer all the questions I had about the dishes and kept my glass full all night. It was one of the best restaurant... More

Having really enjoyed the Bijou deli, I was excited to try the restaurant. We were disappointed to find that service was slow and unfriendly at times, and that the food was nice but very overpriced for what it was. We also felt rushed out of our table and that we were an inconvenience to the staff at a time when... More
