The Bijou Café is a Sarasota Original that has set the standard for fine dining in the heart of the Theatre and Arts District since 1986. The chef brings his passion for farm fresh food and locally caught fish to new culinary heights in the Bijou kitchen. Bijou is Sarasota's No. 1 choice for power lunches and intimate fine dining. In 2004, the Zagat Survey named The Bijou Café as Sarasota’s highest-rated restaurant and one of the top three restaurant on the whole of Florida’s West Coast.
Since 1990, The Bijou Café has annually garnered the prestigious Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for our outstanding wine selections from the USA, France and around the world-including one of the most extensive selections of South African wine available in Florida.
