It was my first visit to Bijou. Had the venison croquettes, short ribs and pineapple tart. Portions were perfect. The amuse bouche with preserved lemon was delish. The price was more than reasonable. Will definitely be back.

Bijou just topped my list of the best restaurants in Stratford. The food and service was absolutely fantastic! They grow the vast majority of their vegetables themselves and pick them daily. You can taste the difference in the freshness, especially within their salads, but also...More

We come here frequently, and simply have never had less than a memorable meal. The staff is friendly and attentive, the menu is creative, there's a lovely wine list...we just love it, and recommend it to everyone. The prix-fixe offers real value, as well.

No dress code. Eclectic range of diners. All welcome.
I have some food allergies (gluten, dairy and added sugar) and I do not eat meat (I do eat fish and seafood). Your menu doesn't look very promising to me. Would you be able to accommodate these dietary restrictions?
