We had an emergency vacay. Best way to explain is we didn't need a vacation but due to circumstances, were forced to have one. Our first night after 24 hours of travel, we climbed up the hill to BonAp and were pleasantly surprised they were still serving at 9pm. And, yum. We had appetizers and Caribbean punch and were hooked. Chris, Yoyo, Andrew, Romaine were awesome in a way that made you feel you've been patronizing the place for years. The food was all exceptionally delicious and what exceptional value. If you' re lucky, Ted can be paying some pretty dang awesome tunes to round off your evening. All in all, you can't go wrong here. My ONLY complaint is only high end bottles of champagne ($90+). We quickly became acclimated to vacay.

This little place located between the Pelican and the Flamingo resorts was a real surprise. We had had breakfast here our first morning, and it was so good that we ended up eating dinner here twice as well. The tuna was prepared perfectly, and the rice and vegetables complemented it perfectly. We never expected to have such good food right under our noses!

We have never been to a restaurant that refuses to serve us tap water with ice. I asked the owner if he could make an exception for us and he said no because then others would want tap water too. We were forced to buy bottled water. What a turn off. Pretty pretentious. After that, he went around the restaurant asking guests how they were enjoying their food, but didn't ask us once. My boyfriend ordered a steak recommended by the owner and it was below par. Also ordered a pizza and they forgot the goat cheese. Pizza was pretty bland. Most of the food can be ordered elsewhere. We told the owner about the mistakes with our orders and he did discount our bill. Never apologized though. Again, pretty douchey. Won't go back.

The overall feeling is that you are sitting along a Parisan street at an outdoor cafe. Staff is very attentive and food delicious!

This restaurant has both outside and inside tables, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our recent experience were two family dinners (we liked our first one so well we went back the next day). Each evening there was a fresh sheet in addition to a nice (though not huge) menu. All the dishes we had over the course of two nights were excellent, in the best French cooking tradition, with a bit of Asian flare added. Service was excellent. Highly recommend this place.
Also try their bakery in the early morning, at 8 am the apple turnovers and croissants are still warm and without doubt the best we have ever tasted.
