Bijou by name..... Bijou by size.....small and intimate. The food is good and affordable. Be warned though there are only possibly 6 tables and booking during the evening is a must.

Hiding in the open Bijou Bistro offers those in the Leith Links (and those willing to travel) a great wee spot to enjoy anything from a light bite to a mighty meal...

Just around the corner from where I live is this lovely little bistro. I love to go there for a good old Sunday breakfast which is always delicious and full of flavour. The restaurant has such a cosy and relaxing feel to it that it is great for any occasion weather it be a catch up with some friends over a coffee or a romantic meal with the other half. They have seasonal menus too so there is always something different to choose from and you can tell that the chef obviously takes pride in his dishes as each one is plated to perfection and doesn't look like it has just been shoved on the plate like some places. If your ever in the leith links area give this place a try - you won't be disappointed.

Had a lovely meal here. Moules Marniere starter with fresh home made bread, belly of pork then chocolate fondant with ice cream, all utterly delicious. Great service and value too.

Staying in the neighborhood, looking for a close by cafe, found a gem! Walked in 1/2 hour before opening and allowed to stay and dry off and have glasses of wine. Great mushroom soup of the day as well as fried bass with sauce modification. Really enjoyed my timeshare chatting with locals and staff! Accessible bathrooms.

Brilliant wee restaurant. Friendly, warm atmosphere, and fabulous food. Been here a few times with family and it never disappoints. Thank you again!

Incredible. Easily some of the best food I’ve ever tasted, and the most splendid atmosphere to eat it in. We stopped in for a cheeky wine in the afternoon and the owner, James, came right over and made us feel at home. So much so we had to come back later for dinner! We took his recommendations on what to get and wished we could have more. The chef, Eddie, needs his own cookbook; the photos I’ve posted won’t do it justice. So much flavour, and care, and passion. You must go here if visiting Edinburgh!! The other great thing is how much James makes every guest feel like family. Another table actually kept checking in with us as well because they wanted to make sure we loved the place as much as they did. So sweet!!

Great wee cafe and bistro. Very friendly staff made me very welcome when I had an hour and a half to kill at 5pm on a wet Thursday. Great homemade carrot cake and a pot of tea were happily provided. They're open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and all times between with the chef on duty until 8:30 pm but no hassle if you want to take your time and stay until 11pm. Must return for dinner one night!

The best breakfast we've ever had, not kidding! Fabulous service, comfy, relaxed, what a place. No wonder Bijou has been going since 2006, folk must love it. I'd move to the area if I could, just to become a regular! Thank you to the fabulous staff, you made an ordinary day extraordinary!

Enjoyed my large bacon roll and hot cappuccino there today. Friendly staff ( and loved the 'pull the chain' cistern in the toilets!)

I often tell myself that I should visit Bijou more often. The cosy Bistro is far from me and I must traverse Granton, Leith, the Links, and Restalrig but the trek is worthwhile. Always worth it. Bijou serves everything from plum desserts to chicken burgers. Bijou Bistro sounds French, but I'm not sure the menu is overwhelmingly Franco-centric. Tip: Always check the specials board. It's not a huge menu but are enough starters, mains, and tantalising desserts to talk about and pick something you like. Three or four course alternatives reassure me of good quality and minimum food waste. I'm confident you'll find something you like. I've risked trying to fit my solo-eating self a table on the weekend, only to find that the Bistro is booked out, which is also a good omen. So, if possible, book. The Bistro's popularity shows that locals like it. Even when packed, it feels inviting, like an oasis between neighbourhoods. Bijou serves good meals without fuss, elitism, or drama and it's an easy venue for me to recommend.

Lovely place to pop into after some recreation on Leith Links. We were there between 10 and 12 so had an egg roll and a bacon roll. As the menu states, the rolls were huge. Also delicious coffee. And ever so friendly staff.

Went to Bijou Bistro during my stay in Leith and had to go back a few days later as I couldn’t stop thinking about the meal I had, it was that good! Wonderful staff - so friendly and helpful to me being new in town! Highly recommend 🙂
