“Slow service ,good food,high prices”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We dined at Bon Bon for my wife's birthday and it was our 2nd visit,but our first at the new location. While the location is much better than the old one,the service has definitely been going into slow drive.We had to wait for exactly 90 (!) minutes for the first food to appear at our table.That's just too long,especially in view of the fact that the restaurant was not that busy.
That speed was going to last throughout the evening and while I like a slow dinner,6 hours for 5 courses was just too long. In addition to that the waiters had an attitude (and that was not because we were foreigners,there was also a belgian with us who let them know it) .
In defence ,the food was very good and innovative,but the high price,the waiters and the slow service will have me look for another place to spend my hard earned money next time!

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Since they moved to WSP we come here on a regular basis and always take the 5 course menu. Service is amazingly friendly and helpful but the best part is the food. Just outstanding mix of local Belgian and international incridients. A great place to eat out.

“Good night out”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We had heard a lot about Bonbon and had wanted to go for a long time but you need a reservation way ahead of time. We took the menu ,the selection and the food was excellent the dishes were well presented and very tasty everything was perfect but because the chef choose for you what you eat sometime what you eat is not what you would have chosen. My wife loved every dishes but i am not a big fan of scallops and oysters. The main course was remarkable and the dessert also. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed an the service was very attentive
Definitely worth trying

“surpasses high expectations”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

BonBon is like no other restaurant. The inventiveness, commitment to excellent ingredients and skill of the chef, Christoph Hardiquest, leads to an experience unparalleled in any other restaurant. From the "greetings from the kitchen" course to the unexpected visit of the "little sweets" trolley, it's one delight after another. Even the most sophisticated palate will savor and be puzzled by the extraordinary and delicious combinations. Sure it's expensive. It's genius.
