“Amazing food”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We went to this restaurant for dinner and it was amazing! The wait staff was quick, friendly and funny. We had the grilled plate (a mix of ribeye, flank and grilled pork) with blue cheese sauce and it was great. We are staying here a week and this was the best meal of the week.

“EXCELLENT!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

This restaurant is close to the Villas at Simpson Bay. You can call food orders in and pick them up, or you can eat there. The food is excellent and is ready in a timely manner. Geno was wonderful and very helpful with placing orders.

“This was the best food I had on the island!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

This was the best food that I had on the island! The value was good and serving sizes were large. Due yourself a favor and get the French Onion Soup & Escargot.

The downside was the service was slow and the scenery was not that great. But, the great food made up for it!

“4-times in one week - yes, we loved it!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Bon Appetit is extremely convenient if you are staying at Simpson Bay Resort and Marina. Convenience only gets you so far for my stomach though... the food was excellent! The service was incredible too. We went twice for breakfast, once for lunch, once for dinner. At dinner there was a guitarist performing and it added to the great ambiance. Over the course of our four visits we tried a lot of different dishes and all were great. My husband is still talking about the delicious bacon!

“Must Try!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We ate last night at Bon Appetit, and it was the second time we ate there during our stay in St. Maarten.

Our server was Ludo, who waited on us the previous time. He is excellent, and has a wonderful sense of humor. We started with the beef carpaccio appetizer. We had never tried this before. The dish was rich, flavorful, yet did not leave us too full for dinner. Good thing, because it was excellent.

My husband ordered the snapper with a lemon butter sauce - which was fabulous. I know - I had it the first time we were here. I ordered the pork tenderloin with a mustard sauce. It was the best I've ever had. You could taste the mustard, but it did not overpower the sauce. It was a perfect accompaniment to the mashed potatoes and vegetables. It was far more than I could eat, and I was thrilled to take the remainder back to the condo with me. The presentation of each course we ordered was beautiful.

They have entertainment, and last night (Friday), Mason played. He is an excellent guitarist, and has a wide repetoire of songs. He did quite a few requests. This just added to the ambiance of sitting outside, having a glass of wine, and enjoying a fantastic meal with great service.

This place is off the main road in Simpson Bay (Welfare Road), but well worth a visit. We are just sorry we are leaving tomorrow, or else we'd be back again! They do serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
