We enjoyed a short walk to Bon Appetit from where we were staying. We only had breakfast there which was good. Wouldn't say it was the best breakfast we had there.

We have eaten here before and I think this is a great restaurant. This time we had fried calamari sticks for an appetizer and a mushroom and cheese pizza. The pizza was just okay. The restaurant is near the Hollywood Casino right across from the Flamingo Beach and Simpson Bay resorts. It is worth trying their menu if you are... More

Bon Appetit is a quaint little bistro. We ate dinner there twice during our week. Both times the food was very good and the atmosphere was fun. Live music was enjoyable and really complimented the outside dining.

Went there on a Saturday early in the morning.. personnel clearly was not fully awake yet even thought they were watching some sport matches. Overpriced, non flavoured omelet and incredibly bad espresso. Won't be repeating.

The staff and food was great. The stairs were a bit steep if you wanted to walk up to the bar, otherwise wait for someone to come.

Lunch in the upstairs bar is quite casual but the food, which includes some of the dinner items (example: escargot) is just great! The fried potatoes are really great so long as you don't try to think of them as American French Fries. Drinks are reasonably price (wine, sangria, beer) and the background music is good. Engage with the bartender... More

I love this place, we went twice first time I got the mixed meats with freshly cut steak fries! My wife got the mussels and wow it was delicious! Second time we went at night and shared the chicken cordon bleu, it's really big so if your not to hungry it's perfect to share. Great spot to go to if... More

Bon Appetit set up the hill from the main road in Simpson Bay, next to the Flamingo Beach Resort. The food is good ( breakfast, lunch or dinner) provides for a nice meal with drinks. The atmosphere is nice outside and with the remodel inside is an added experience. The location is central for all visiting surrounding resorts and casino.... More
