Fabulous croissants and amazing choc au pans. Fresh from oven, drove back from Queenstown for another one, they were that good. Great coffee also!

Simple ambiance, with real French food. We have been about 6 times over the last few years, it being our main reason to return to Arrowtown. Superb lunch: Small helpings of excellent quality, and priced OK for that. If you like French rural family restaurants then you will love this. A good chance to have snails again. Not for hungry...

We have had the pleasure of dining here on a number of occassions and never been disappointed! We now make a point of visiting here whenever we visit Arrowtown. On our last visit we had Caramalised Apple Crepe and a Chestnut Spread Crepe and they were both devine (in fact he couldn't eat all his apple crepe). The atmosphere was... More

The most consistent and best coffee in Arrowtown. And there is nothing better than a warm Pain au chocolat fresh out of the oven.

We really enjoyed our meal. The menu was full and very good. Between us we enjoyed vegie soup, chicken casserole, scallop and shrimp mournay, and pancake. All very tasty. Friendly, efficient service. A French restaurant that is genuinely French, unpretentious and reasonably priced is rare in NZ - we highly recommend

We ate at Bonjour twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner. Both times, the food was great, the ambience was nice and the service was prompt, courteous and friendly. This place is taken right out of rural France, and dropped into Arrowtown. Highly recommend it, the crepes are to die for, and the dinner duck confit is perfect! A... More

Had the pleasure of endulging in the best Crepe I have had in some years at the Bonjour Cafe in Arrowtown this week. For under NZ$20 we (my wife and I) enjoyed a most delicious Crepe and two coffees. [Had I known how great the Crepes were I would have ordered us one each.] Bonjour Cafe are the real 'french'... More

We went for a late breakfast on a Monday. The service was excellent, staff were all suitably french and spoke good english. The food was unfortunate... It was a cold day, our plates were cold, the poached eggs were put straight on a cold plate, the baguette was sliced thinly and tasted a little stale, the croissant was cold as... More

We visited Bonjour on an evening and left feeling very disappointed as well as hungry, following our 2 course dinner. I ordered the Lamb Shanks (plural) for main at a not cheap $29. When I was served one small shank and a few potato croquettes I was left bewildered. For me the food was of a child sized portion, not... More

I was very pleasantly surprised. The location and appearance had led me to expect less high quality that we got. The staff are French and the cooking is excellent. The furnishings are "cafe".
