Four of us stopped for lunch on a lazy Saturday. The gloom turned to sun, the tide came in and made spray against the harbour walls - a fantastic scene for a meal. The food didn't disappoint. Each dish had more than usual depth of flavour. Cod was locally sourced, chips were a revelation, fish pie emphasised the sea and not the potato. Chocolate/coffee creme brûlée and rich brownie with crisp crust both offered subtle variations on familiar dishes. A find.

What can I say about Bon appetit . Food was great with plenty of depth of flavour.great service good atmosphere. But most of all you can tell that the chef has a passion for food that just comes naturally . The really nice thing is that you are not pounced upon by a waiter intent on feeding you as quick as possible so that he can brush you away as fast as crumbs off the table so that he can turn it round and get the next person on the roller coaster . No , here at Bon appetite you are treated gently and are not rushed because let's face it the food is too good to rush. What a find this little unassuming restaurant is I would urge you to find it and give it a go.

we were treated to a Sunday lunch at this place,we had a baby and had booked. It took over an hour for our food to arrive and after asking twice why we did not have any food the only reason was we did not order a starter ,by the time the food arrived the baby was too tired to eat it and I was past it ,but expected it to be good ,sadly it tasted like it had been under the keep warmer the whole time we waited . i had heard good reports about the place £10 for a below average roast £5.50 glass of house wine, no service very dissapointed

This place is a real gem. Great staff, great good and a lovely view. French style cuisine cooked with love. You will not be disappointed. The steak on haggis is a treat and try and have a sweet as they are to die for.

We arrived in Ramsgate about 1830 on a Sunday searching for a good fish and seafood restaurant. We had come across Bon Appetite on the web so were expecting good food and service. We were not disappointed with any aspect of the evening. The menu was imaginative with lots of fresh fish and seafood from the local fishmonger alongside meat and vegetarian dishes. Service was friendly, discrete and unhurried.

I had the squid followed by the fish creole which was spicy but delicious with every item cooked and presented beautifully. My wife had the garlic tiger tail sizzler followed by a plate of sea bass in bouillabaisse which was also beautiful in appearance and very tasty. A well chilled bottle of Fernlands Savignon Blanc was a good accompaniment to the food. We shared a pear tart tatin which was a lovely sweet end to the meal. Unfortunately there was no decaffinated espresso available.

At just under £90 this was not a cheap evening meal but it was worth every penny and I do not hesitate in recommending Bon Appetite to anyone wanting good tasting quality food. If you want the same quality cheaper then pay a visit during lunchtime.
