We had my husband's 50th birthday at Cafe Bon Bon... I can not describe how amazing everything about this place is... the location, the venue itself and most importantly the staff. Marie-Louise makes you feel special every second and chef Tijn goes the extra mile with his food. The ultimate breakfast venue, lunch venue and selective nights for dinner. We have been to all three on other occassions as well and highly, highly recommend this outstanding venue.

Great restaurant, great food beautifully plated with good flavours, peaceful atmosphere, great decor and very friendly staff. The only thing that was not up to scratch was the service. We will definitely return with friends.

I have joined Cafe BonBon several times for breakfast and lunch and had Top Dollar meals every time.

Went with the family for lunch and from the time of booking on the phone, we were treated with kindness and warmth. The place is beautiful - grounds and restaurant are picturesque with lots of attention to detail. When it threatened to become a bit chilly/windy outside, without our asking, the manageress offered us a table inside if we'd have wanted to move. The service all round was excellent - friendly and warm. Another thoughtful gesture was to bring the children's meal ahead of the adults - again without our having requested.
The meal was delightful - well prepared and beautifully presented. A wonderful combination of flavours. Fresh ingredients.
All round this was an excellent experience and we will be sure to return.

The restaurant had been built up to be a very good experience and it was apart from the service. We went in the evening and the other personal experiences were of lunch. It appeared that we were a cover too far and when the wine is set down too far from the table and we had to get up to retrieve it and finally had to go to the waitress to ask for a dessert order to be taken at 10.30 when we got there at 8 o'clock something was very wrong. We are very unlikely to go there again and found the Grill Room far better and much more friendly. Shame as the venue is very good.
