Great!

Great little authentic French cafe in the middle of NZ. How bizarre! Yet charming. French waitresses too. And French goodies on the shelves. Lovely atmosphere. We only stopped for a cuppa and that was good. Also nice to sit outside.

We ate breakfast at this delightful little French Restaurant. The staff all French (or French Kiwi Students) and the food was delicious. More than you could eat. Crepes, very nice, French toast to die for and I am told the Omelette was superb. High recommended.

Very welcoming (French) servers, excellent food. Sit outside and watch the world go by: you could almost be in France.

I had tried snails once before but found them slimy and I was nearly sick. I tried them at bonjour and wanted more. They were tender, not slimy at all and very tasty as was the rest of our meals. staff were friendly and helpful

A little bit of France in NZ. We stopped for breakfast and had the croissant filled with scrambled egg and the baguette breakfast. Good sized servings and very tasty. Very nice change of style from the average breakfasts.

We stopped at Bonjour for lunch. We had the La Poulet Galette and vegetable soup. The food was delicious. The staff that we met are actually French and very friendly - one lovely waitress gave us a french language lesson as we ordered. The atmosphere is relaxed - a great option for dining in Arrowtown.
