We had dinner at Bon Appetit and were pleased with our visit. Food was good but we expected a bit more given that the restaurant has one michelin star. Atmosphere was very good and service was also good.

Michelin star restaurants can sometimes be a little stiff and formal. We loved the more casual approach to service this restaurant has! We opted for the surprise 6 course tasting menu which was delicious. Fantastic flavour combinations and presentation and at €50 pp you can't beat it for value at that standard! Upstairs has a great buzz for a pre... More

Have eaten in Bon Appetite on a number of occasions, always 'upstairs' when it was a Michelin star and was never too blown away but service was always excellent. So when 4 of us met in the Tapas Bar there last weekend the last thing I expected to be complaining about was the service. The actual choice of dishes on... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner, based on a recommendation from our hotel. Since it was quite late when we got there, we decided to order a la carte, and keep it light. The bream and hake main courses were very tasty and well-presented, and the sides (potato croquettes and beans) were also delicious. We wrapped up with a... More

I ate here on my own, taking advantage of the mid-week deal of €24.95 for any three tapas dishes and a glass of wine. All three dishes were delicious and rich - how I like it. Good atmosphere and service. Overall, probably amongst the best value meals I have eaten in the greater Dublin area.
