This was my first visit since pre covid. I had the featherblade beef for my mains and it was delicious as always. A side order of onion rings really complemented the dish. Covid protocols were diligently observed by staff and customers from what we saw while there. The manager and staff were all very attentive in general and again that has always been my experience in the Bijou.

Have found the food in Bijou to generally be pretty average. The basics are good but no better than any average restaurant but I’ve consistently found there is a lack of flavor in their food compared to similarly priced places. Also some of the elements of the dishes are throwbacks to the 90’s and it would seem that they just haven’t innovated and moved on.

Staff were great as always, very polite and attentive, absolutely no issues there. But wobbly old tables that feel cheap and desperately need to be replaced. In general, probably needs to be freshened up.

Overall, the quality of the food does no justify the prices whatsoever. For lunch, two mains, two sides, two coffees and water came to €60. You could get relatively high end food for that in the city centre but I would be confident in being able to get a better quality meal and experience for closer to €40-€45 easily

There was three in our party & we all cleared our plates. Bijou has never let us down.
The service in the courtyard last night was exceptional, best service we have ever had anywhere. Thank you Bijou

For the overall price of the meal the food was of average standard. The waiter was lovely however he was really overwhelmed by the tables upstairs and often forgot different drinks order, they should have additional staff upstairs to help him. We also felt really rushed at times and it was clear by the end that they did not require our table back, if there was a little more patience shown, we would have more than likely had more drinks.
