Bijou has very good food, but make sure you make a reservation. It's a very popular restaurant, expecially pre-theater.

This has to be one of our favorite restaurants in Stratford. Food is excellent but even better is the wonderful service and ambiance. We felt very taken care of and came back a second time on this trip.
