Really good,

I really like this little spot. We stopped here for a quiet dinner after a long day of traveling and it was exactly what we needed. The service was quick and the food was great. We stopped again on the morning of our departure. It's a perfect brunch spot.

Enjoy a fabulous breakfast at this quaint spot. I had the eggs benedict, which they serve on a fresh baked croissant. The hollandaise was creamy and amazing and the croissant was perfectly buttery and flaky. Paired with a mimosa, this was a lovely breakfast. They also had chocolate croissant french toast, which we didn't try but sounded amazing for anyone... More

We don’t typically eat so close to the resorts – and Bon Appetit is just behind Diamond’s Flamingo Beach and Simpson Bay Resort - since our goal is to explore the local culinary scene. But an early vegetarian dinner (see stop #7) left us hankering for more food at the culinary witching hour for the island: 10:00. The waiter was... More

We had a quick breakfast on the terrace before our boat tour. We had coffee and ham/cheese/egg crepes, which came quickly (which was good since we were in a rush). Nice little spot, would return.

Nice little outdoor restaurant in Simpson Bay Area. Easy walking distance from our hotel and a very nice breakfast menu. Excellent and quick service that made for a really good experience.

Located at Simpson Bay this restaurant is a nice place to enjoy a delicious meal with music at dinner. The guitarist was really good and sang and played throughout the evening. The atmosphere is quite relaxed and unhurried and lends itself to lingering over good conversation. The Chicken Cordon Bleu was exceptionally good. The crepes are a must try. The... More

Tucked away in Pelican Key is Bon Appetit. This generally French restaurant serves up delicious dinner. On this occasion I ordered a rib eye, and it was cooked to perfection! Each section allowed a choice of sauces for the meat. In my case, the green peppercorn sauce was excellent! The fries are hand cut potatoes cooked to a crispy finish!

We love this place!!! We stayed in a villa nearby and came here every day for the most delicious pastries we've ever had. Seriously. We also dined here one evening and the food was fantastic with wonderful attentive service. There was a live musician, candles, and a quaint atmosphere. I would highly recommend it!!!
