Bijou has both a prix-fixe menu and a la carte, with excellent choices on both. However, when the restaurant is full, the kitchen seems unable to prepare meals in an reasonable time for a pre-theatre client. We barely made the curtain time without having dessert....More

This was a return visit for us and it didn't disappoint. Food was extremely high quality and locally sourced. The trout was superbly flavoured. The best appetizer was outstanding. We plan to return next year.
