A French culinary gem in Davao

I ate at Bon Appetit! three times during my 2 weeks in Davao, so that should tell you quite a bit about it. On my first visit, the owner greeted us at the door, then proceeded to go over the specials one by one in great detail, providing a helpful explanation of each item. One of the specials was... read more

Hello everyone, i wish to start by mentioning it was a delight to be welcomed at Bon Appetit. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner and his beautiful family and they made us feel at home in many ways, as they do to all who visit! The food and service was top notch. The choices are excellent! I can't... More

There are not many good or very good foreign restaurants in Davao City. One is for sure: BON APPETITE belongs to the very good ones. Very good value for your money. Cozy atmosphere. And, it always works, if an owner greets his guests personally.

I was inspired to sign up for Trip Advisor just to review Bon Appetit, always the highlight of my frequent trips to Davao City. I was delighted to find that they were ranked #1 (as of early 2015) in the Davao restos category-- this is entirely appropriate as it currently is the best place in Davao hands down. Bon appetit...

I came in off the TripAdvisor rating and was treated to a great meal. The owner came by each table to say hi to the guests....nice touch. I will be back in the Davao area in a few weeks & will definitely head to Bon Appetit with a friend.

Nice atmosphere and terrific food. Very friendly, attentive and personal service. Great French food. Analogous to dining in a bistro in Paris. (But friendlier to Americans!) Hard to find but well worth it every time.

Upon entering, I quickly observed that the place was small. I had quite a hard time transferring from one table to another. But nevertheless, it was little to consider compared to the tasty food that they serve. The French owner at that time was really nice to welcome and chit chat with us. My friends and I loved the pastas... More

Intimate place as not many seats, incredible menu so French, very reasonable prices for outstanding food... Quantity is just perfect balance between much enough and diet, just perfect. Food quality is amazing especially in Davao... Yves the owner is very accessible and make the experience even better. Highly recommended place for a romantic diner, a French experience, a business lunch,... More

Contrary to everyone's belief that french cuisine are expensive, this one's not. With a little over 500 pesos, 2 people can get a full mean out of it. The service is superb. The staff anticipates what you need and are prompt to your request. Definitely a must try when your in davao.
