The menu is a cliché : it offers loads of different meals, and appears a bit messy. Decoration is in bad taste. But you can buy nice cheeses and typical delicatessen.

Nice French atmosphere and food. Good for a sweat or cupa. Staff are friendly and helpful. We only had afternoon tea here, so cant comment on meals, but those that we saw others had looked nice.

We were in Arrowtown for one night so thought we would give Bonjour a try as the menu had a bit of something for everybody. Long story short it was fantastic. We have holiday'd in France for years before moving to New Zealand and this is a truly authentic french dining experience. The Coquilles St Jaques is to die for,... More

Tripped via Arrowtown en route from Queenstown to Franz Josef just to see if brekkie was as good as the reviews said. Good decision! Only a simple ham & cheese croissant but it was delicious and the coffee is excellent. We were the first to arrive soon after they'd opened up. Very friendly welcome, fast service. My friend opted for... More

The food is fantastic, the menu is diverse, the staff are always friendly. The prices are very reasonable. La Raclette is my favourite dish. They even have le chat noir to welcome... More

If you are looking for an authentic French experience with awesome pastries, coffee & certainly the best ham, cheese & tomato omelette in Arrowtown - gooey in the middle but crisp on the edges - this is the place to visit. Off the main street - where portions are tiny & overpriced - Cafe Bonjour is now my favourite breakfast... More

An authentic French Cafe from the staff to the food and the ambiance. You can even have Orangina with their fantastic crepes.

There were four of us out for breakfast. Three breakfasts turned up and I waited, waited, waited some more. Eventually I asked a waitress and it wasn't followed up. I later went inside and asked again. The response was "do you want to leave or carry on waiting" Eventually the THIRD time I asked, the table order was checked (as... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on Bonjour, I remember your visit vividly, it was last Sunday, at our MOTATAPU (New Zealand's iconic off road sporting event) weekend with 4000 participants plus all the supporters. It's not an excuse, but it was a very busy weekend for us, Arrowtown is a little village with... More

A 'must-do' in Arrowtown! Great original French cuisine and excellent service. It's our favourite café and restaurant in New Zealand.
