“Good cuisine”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

When you walk in you are welcomed by the friendly staff into the very retro styled restaurant. With wooden model ships perched behind the bar and many countries flags hanging from the wall and the 80's feel seating you think you have gone back in time. Then you sit down and go through their huge menu you are spoilt for choice right across the board except for seafood which is limited to about two dishes.
If you are into steak this is the place for you. Sirloin, T-bone, fillet is all available in its various guises. Being a seafood lover myself I ordered the hake fillet with chips and French salad. It was sublime and the portion was very substantial. I had the gateaux which was excellent too. All in all it was a good night out.

“nice and cosy”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Comparing to all the take aways around this seems to be graet place even though serves nothing specia. Still the food is good and various. You can choose between different size of portions and addings (like bread/pita/toast/tortilla etc). Breakfast menu is nice.
Cafe is good and real (not instant).
Service is nice and qick.
The whole place has a style of old european caffe and it's nice.

“Consistent”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Meals are a good size and well priced. Service is always good, even with a large group. Don't expect 5 star, but for a cheap meal and a night off from cooking you won't be disappointed.

“An excellent eatery”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is a great restaurant which is centrally located in Bulawayo. the premises are good with parking available most of the times i've been there. The staff are very friendly and courteous and go out of their way to please you. I feel this place is rather mature given that Bon Journee has been around since the 50's and that also the staff is experienced and mature.
The food is top notch. Well prepared, variety, full menu. I really love the meals.They also have special meals on the menu for kids so everyone is catered for.
The place also has a bar and serves a variety of alcoholic drinks and cocktails. There is usually people smoking. So if you dont like a bar and grill kind of atmosphere, or if you cant stand cigarette smoke then go in the afternoon or avoid the place altogether.
But the food alone is quite worth it. Normally in the evenings (when there are the most smokers) i order take away. BUt during the day the decision is a no brainer. I eat in.
Definitely consider this place if you are looking for good food in Bulawayo.
