Excellent food - maybe a slight slip in standard of service

The food was really good as would be expected in a Michelin star restaurant and we had great fun enjoying the flight wines which accompanied the 9 courses. However, the service in our opinion had slipped slightly from the last time we visited especially around the description and processes used in... read more

Went last night for a lovely meal on our last night. Opted for the 8 course tasting menu with wine flight. The food was excellent and served at the right pace by very knowledgable staff, the wine was a great accompaniment. Lovely outdoor seating area with great view. No one course stood out which was a shame considering it is... More

It is easy to see why this venue has been awarded a Michelin Star. From the time you arrive you know this is a very professional operation. No it is not cheap but I think the cost is fully justified. We were advised to order the seven course tasting menu. Absolutely super!!! Some of the courses are obviously quite small... More

4 of us had the 9 course tasting menu with one of us having the paired wine tasting. We were given plenty of information about each course and what to expect. Even our autistic son managed to eat an enjoy all of the courses. The flavours on every course were sublime, only one course stood out to be not to... More

We wanted to take my business partner and his wife from Belgium out somewhere special on their last evening in Spain as they always treat us so well when we visit them and picked Bon Amb after a couple of previous visits. Since our last visit, the menu has expanded to include three different tasting menus, which all feature the... More

The service was impeccable and the venue wonderful - the food was tasty but with minuscule portions ,we have had tasting menus before and always left feeling fed,not here. Maybe we chose wrong maybe not but we wont be going back and with a bill in... More

Food was ok but a little bland. Service was poor. Well below the standard we expected and have had at this restaurant previously. Wrong dish presented to one of our guests. Had to ask twice for water. Lack of attentive service bordering on indifference.

We had the 8 course gastronomic menu with matched wine for each dish. It was all faultless, but just not really that exciting. Nothing wrong, the food was beautifully cooked, presented and the matched wines and even the one beer were fine. But I guess I was hoping for more than fine. One of those moments when the wine and...

We went to celebrate a significant family birthday so chose what we hoped would match the event. The location is superb and the customer service excellent. The food , however , did not match the quality of the environment. We had the Montego tasting menu which lacked variety, each course seemed to have the same construction , namely fish in... More
