“Great breakfast, great location”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We ate at Bon Appetite every morning for breakfast except for one when we went to Zee Best and we regretted it. Eggs, coffee, bacon all very good. Almond croissant was outstanding.

“Food was just O.K.”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The resort where we were staying recommended Bon Appetit. The service was just so so and not very friendly at that. The food was overpriced and not as good as many of the other restaurants we had eaten at in St Martin. I ordered an appetizer of salmon and it was the most bland salmon I have ever eaten. They brought us some plain bread with no butter. I probably will not eat here again.

“Very nice meal!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Due to flight delays we only got to the restaurant well after 10pm, after the front desk manager of the hotel recommended this restaurant to us. The waitress said it was no problem to have a bite to eat, despite the late hour. She was wonderful! My husband and I had a lovely cold bear while we were waiting for our food. Pizzas and steak, that meal could not have been any more delicious. We had no dessert but the people next to us did, and it looked wonderful. I think that Creme Brulee looked yummee so I'll have that next time for sure. Great service, nice location close to The Villas at Simpson Bay. I picked up some breakfast there the next morning: lovely croissants and pain aux chocolats, well what else can one expect from a French bakery? I also got a delicious Dutch coffee to go: very strong, very nice! A very nice guy serving the breakfast, so I can highly recommend that too!

“Great Breakfast Spot”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Great spot for breakfast and close to many of the hotels in the Simpson Bay area. Croissants are baked fresh and worth the wait. Prices are also good. I prefer this spot to Zee Best.

“Perfect Island Spot”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Quaint and beautiful little restaurant on the dutch side of St. Maarten. The food was wonderful for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the service was always friendly. If creme brulee is on the menu make sure to save room for desert. Over 7 days we ate at this restaurant 8 times.
