We had our wee works Christmas do here. Ridiculously delicious food, a beautiful three course meal at a very reasonable price. The hospitality was second to none, well selected music, top notch servic...e and generally just loved the overall vibe of the place. All our colleagues commented that it was a great selection of venue for our party. Will definitely be back for more! Thanks for a great time :) See More

We opted from the specials board, steak and cod, cooked to perfection, exceeded our expectations by a mile. The chef knows the taste business! The banofee pie was lovely as was the cheeseboard and the... chutney was delicious. Relaxed atmosphere, nice friendly service, highly recommend. See More

Visited yesterday with friends what a fantastic wee place, food outstanding and lovely staff. Shoulder massages were an unexpected bonus. Will definitely be back after your refurb. Happy New Year to you all.

I love this place and return regularly. Last night had pigeon for the first time and it was yum. Love the way that the menu is constantly changing and breakfast is spectacular.

A great find, casual eating, just on/off Leith Links, variety of items on menu and a lot of out of the ordinary options. Will be delighted to return!

Always coming here with people from work for a wee coffee. Very nice staff ( esp the ginger girl ;)) , a wee bit of kinda steam punk interior design and matchable music � !
Highly recommended!

We had the pleasure of dinning at Bijou Bistro with friends on Saturday night and the Seabass with roast garlic and onion tatin, samphire and spring onion dish, simply put was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! To the ...wonderful crew, thank you for your warm smiles, fantastic attentive service and top-notch food over the bank holiday weekend. We've eaten around the world but one thing always rings true. You know you've found a gem-of-a-local when you get food envy just looking at other people's plates and...when it's fully booked every weekend. I suspect culinary awards are coming your way in the very near future too ~ kind regards, two Kiwi's See More

I honestly cannot recommend this place any higher. fantastic food, great service, what more do you need? Heres a good example; a few years back we were invited to a posh christmas do at a very large c...ountry house with award winning restaurant, two days later we had the same crowd down to ours for our christmas meal at Bijou. Several people said that the Bijou meal knocked the other one out of the park. nuff said :-) See More

Year between visits and be welcomed like an old friend? Lovely atmosphere. Staff are exceptional, service friendly and personal yet unobtrusive and food excellent, honest st...raightforward and well prepared. I don't really want to share in case I can't get a table next time ! See More
And so it begins!!

Not usually one for posting rants - however - just put our shiny glass bin out on the pavement in preparation for being picked up and some guy stripped it down and did this to it for some scrap metal - that’s one thing but upon repatriation of said bin to me some lovely passer by had a go at ME for being shirty with the metal thieving toe rag - hash tag flattened bin - bijou has been open regardless the weather and biffa and their glass collection or lack thereof can go swivel - gotta make u laugh - love leith

Ok - sorry for the radio silence from bijou but opening tonight was probably a bit premature from a building snags point of view BUT.. Ali pulled off a blinder and having a soft opening was the best - many thanks to all who came tonight - was a superb evening!...... however the awesome builders need to finish off so let’s just go for evening service until Wednesday - so 5pm opening saturday, Sunday and Monday - closed Tuesday and 10am Wednesday and so on - woohooooo

Hello folks! It’s getting close! We reopen on Saturday!!! Here a wee teaser of the menus - some fettling still to be done!

Hello folks - I would post a picture but honestly it looks like a bomb went off - however, we are taking bookings as of the 17th of feb - also, if you are a wee bit flexible - we are having a jolly on the night of the 16th but places are limited - Ali will have polished his menu up real soon and it’s full of old school and old favourites - so keep an eye out and hope to hear from you all soon!!! - bookings are best made on here or emailing me at or just pop your head in if you see me at the ‘building site’

This chef knows no bounds in destruction!
