I booked Sunday Brunch for 4 people. The restaurant was chilly and not very welcoming when we were brought downstairs to our table. The waitress while friendly was not particularly helpful. One of our party asked for potatoes instead of chips with her fish and the waitress said that she would have to ask the chef as there were no... More

Always know you will enjoy a fabulous meal here. Finally was able to have afternoon tea and it was great. You will not ever be disappointed with the food an Bon Appetit. The one item to note is that it can get quite loud downstairs. Would be nice to install some noise damping tiles. The bar area is not noisy.

We went this evening for special meal out while staying in Malahide for the weekend and were not disappointed.Staff were friendly and attentive and the restaurant had a nice buzz. Food delicious. Good choice and good sized portions. The goats cheese / beetroot starter was really tasty and everything beautifully presented. We hope to be back.

Have been dying to go here for some time. Had actually booked another restaurant but decided to go here instead and we were not disappointed... Firstly it was Thursday and half price cocktails so that was great. A super selection and they were really tasty . We were in the tapas bar. Portions were large and they were extremely tasty....

It has been a while since we dined at Bon Appetit; the last occasion was upstairs in the Tapas Bar which is also worth a visit. Last night we dined in the restaurant downstairs & I am happy to report it did not disappoint. On the starter front the black pudding with poached egg & hollandaise on a crushed pea... More

Delicious food at the tapas bar. Have always been a big fan of bon appetite. Food is excellent quality and is different to the usual tapas selection. Wagyu burger is mouthwatering! Had booked to eat in restaurant but wasn't excited by the changed early bird menu so decided to eat in the reliable tapas bar.
