I really enjoyed this restaurant. It is elegantly decorated with a French influence. I must say I loved the purse stool too! I had a fantastic meal here, with a lobster bisque to start and venison for my main course which was cooked perfectly. The bread brought to your table is delicious, I had the warm smoked bacon bread and... More

My wife and I had been looking forward to trying the Tapas bar at Bon Appetit for a while after hearing mainly good reports. On the evening we booked we arrived and received a good welcome from the waiting and bar staff. Drinks were served in a timely manner.

Most Dubliners will know that Bon Appetit is one of Dublin's Michelin starred establishments. Recently, however, cheer Oliver Dunne has decided to take the focus away from this aspect of the business and concentrate on the downstairs room, which has remained consistently popular. What a great decision this has proved to be! My wife and I ate here to celebrate... More

We like to eat in top restaurants from time to time, and given that we live close to Malahide we wanted to try Bon Appetit, both upstairs in the Michellin starred restaurant, and downstairs in the Bistro. Our first time upstairs was not a good experience – we weren’t happy with the service, the ambiance, or the food. We didn’t... More

I treated my mam to champagne afternoon tea here and it was just unbelievably gorgeous. It was definitely up there with some of the 5 star hotels in Dublin. The staff were so attentive without being annoying. Loved it so much I've just bought another voucher to go back and have afternoon tea again.

I really enjoyed eating here. Gluten free options were readily available and there were a lot of options. The service was good and our servers were all very helpful. Slightly annoying how we went for Sunday lunch and the traditional sunday lunch came with a 5 euro supplement. But overall, a positive experience

Don't expect the star to remain. Went to the brasserie for lunch to find out it was now the main restaurant. The food is good for the price, but if you're going for the Michelin experience it no longer has it.
