Located in the Theatre and Arts District of downtown Sarasota, the Bijou Cafe has been a treasured staple of the Sarasota restaurant scene since its opening in 1986. Diners appreciate the award-winning wine list, outstanding service, and eclectic menu. The menu is inspired by the French and South African heritage of owner Jean-Pierre Knaggs and elevated by Chef Ryan William’s inventive passion for using local ingredients and sustainable seafood.
The Bijou Cafe strives to ensure every guest experience is special, whether the occasion is a romantic date night, celebratory dinner, business luncheon, or happy hour with friends. Private rooms provide an elegant setting for rehearsal dinners, holiday parties, and business seminars.
