Great food and venue

This is a superb little restaurant overlooking the harbour. An excellent range of food wines and good service. I am just sorry when I was here at the start of this month it was not open for Sunday lunch which it is during Bank Holidays and Ramsgate week.

You simply have to taste it to believe how well this chef infuses French flavours into classic English dishes. Rustic atmosphere and fantastic view overlooking the harbour. Don't miss this dining experience if you're visiting Ramsgate.

Dropped in for an evening meal. Warmly greeted and free bread and dips appetiser. We had chicken and cod dishes which were both very good. Did not strike us as particularly French, we'd say generally wide breadth of food. The cod for example was served with a tomato salsa spicy sauce and had a nice onion bhaji (I think) with... More

Food excellent, service very friendly and welcoming, lunch is very reasonable and even in the evening value for money takes some beating. If you have a special evening coming up - this is the best food and value for money restaurant in Ramsgate - the only place to take the bank manager & impress !

This is my second visit to Bon Appetit and it was as good as the first time. It's rare to find a proper French restaurant any more. Most restaurants seem to be a mixture of various European types of cuisine. But this is the real thing. They change the menu frequently, and there is always a good choice. This time... More

I organised a business meal for colleagues and needed somewhere that would suit all tastes. The menu was small but carried a great variety of dishes; each of us at the table had something different. The wine list was extensive and well chosen and the house wines we chose were an excellent Pinot Grigio and a full bodied Malbec that... More

Went for lunch today, and it was fantastic. I had steak - sounds simple, but totally rocked it with haggis, swede & carrot crush and mash with leek & whisky jus. Definitely need to work my way through the menu!
