Great Restaurant

The $50 three course dinner was excellent. The wine list is great. The service, superb and the flavours are naturally what you come to expect from the French, beautiful. Perfect for a romantic dinner for two.

We dined tonight for their special valentines dinner, the food was outstanding, the little extras that they threw in were special and so tasty. The service as always was sensational, nothing is ever a problem and drinks came out so fast.

This was not the first time I have eaten at this restaurant and it is consistently good. Food always great, good selection of wine,... More

My first visit to C'est Bon was in late 2014, as a local it is so great to see the excellent service. The food was amazingly mouth watering. C'est will be a regular dining experience for me.

Usually visit this restaurant for lunch, but went for dinner for the first time in years. Well what a great French experience. We shared the escargot, will not make that mistake again, next time a dozen each definitely.

Earlier that evening we surfed the restaurant's website and chose our entrees, main courses and desserts. The restaurant offers air conditioned dining indoors an al fresco dining on an undercover verandah. Given the heat & humidity we opted to dine indoors.... More
