Had afternoon tea at Bon Appetit today. Amazing service, such a friendly welcome from the staff. The food was full of flavour and just enough so that you could finish it comfortably but still be full. Will definitely be back

This was my second visit here, this time to the Brasserie, but i had been to the Michelin starred restaurant previously.

The food was just fabulous, here's what we had- Starters- Caramelized red onion tart, ricotta cheese, caramelized pine nuts, sweet red peppers. Slow... More

The Lamb dish was sweet and really tasty but my favorite was the starter of fresh Tuna with Avocado mouse, The meal was well paced, loved the... More

The sea trout was very nice but didn't have the look of a great dish. The mains were Hake and also steak , two dishes that were pleasing but... More

Nice choices on the menu too (I had the 3-course dinner menu). Service was friendly and efficient, but not intrusive. Raphael in particular was wonderful, he was very friendly and helpful with wine choices. Good service can... More
