“Mediocre Food with Poor Service”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

The people who work here seem nice enough but the service levels were lacking at both lunch and dinner. The pizza ordered at a slow time at a time when the restaurant was nearly empty took about 45 minutes and the pizza was not worth the wait unless you like heavy cheese and a soggy crust. Dinner was very expensive with average quality. Service, however, was very slow and did not appear at our table for most of the meal. I do not recommend Bon Appetit.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We tried to go to the Hideaway, which was recommended to us by several people, but it is closed on Sundays. We ended trying Bon Appetite and were very happy with our selection - food was excellent, wine was reasonable price, they had outdoor seating and live music which was just the right volume. Had the shrimp and scallop skewer with lobster and crab sauce and it was fantastic. Highly recommended for casual dining out.

“Best onion soup ever!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

This restaurant was within walking distance of our apartment so we dined there a couple of evenings. It was lovely sitting outside with live music playing as we ate. The onion soup is to die for couldn't eat anything else after it we had to take the rest of our meal out!

“French 5 star dining on the Dutch side”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

This restaurant was only yards from our apartment. We had breakfast here twice and dinner 3 times in a 10 day break. The food was superb, french style with a Caribbean twist. The escargot starter I had on our first night was the best I have ever tasted, even in good quality restaurants in France. We were always made to feel welcome, and the staff were friendly and attentive. We sometimes had to wait for a table, so best to book in advance. A discreet guitarist providing background music in the evenings provided the ambience that made a good experience great.
