“Dine with the waves”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

There is something magical about this place. Is it the sight of happy waves gushing towards you? Is it the soothing shelter of the palm trees gently swaying in the breeze? Or is it the food that makes your heart mellow?
Tucked in quiet nook of Sinquerim, a shy, undiscovered beauty, this restaurant is the perfect place for an evening out. As the sonorous music fills your heart with longing, you feel at one with nature. The chef expertly whips up local specialities with a touch of global finesse. The owners Joe and his staff are friendly, not overbearing or indulgent. They keep their distance, but still make you feel warmly welcomed. You can relax, fold or unfold yourself at your leisure. Watch the sun melt into the distant waters, as Taj Fort Aguada stands in silhouette like a grand lady. In the glow of the twinkling fairy lights, watch little children pick up sea shells and dig their feet into the sand.

Now, did I say that this place is magical?

“peaceful and relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

We found Bon Appetit by accident and what a find. Delightful gardens overlooking the sea. We visited most days usually for breakfast and lunch, A good varied menu, reasonably priced. You can use the comfy sunbeds available or sit in the shade of the palm trees. No hassle of beach sellers, just peace and quite - perfect.

“Beach side mirage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

This restaurant feels almost like a mirage as you walk down a dirt road through what feels like a private residence into a candle/ christmas light lit outdoor dining area directly over looking the ocean. I dined by myself but had made two new friends, Joe the owner and Mary the server, by the time my meal was finished. Their hospitality was absolutely wonderful and the ambiance even more so. After a long hot day of travel nothing could top my experience of sipping a cold glass of wine and eating the local kingfish tandoor with the warm ocean breeze blowing in my hair. Blood pressure does not exist at Bon Appetit!
