Even though all we had was a quiet afternoon lunch on a sunny day with few other punters around, we were served up a full a la carte meal. The food was impeccably cooked and presented. The mixed desert plate comes highly recommended, but to be shared! I did feel the quail starter was a bit substantial for a starter, but how bad a complaint is that really?! Its honest, top quality food, and, despite the very reasonable price of 65 euro for two three course meals and drinks, is better than many European Michelin star restaurants you could eat in.

Lovely venue, great service but the WORST springbok I have ever endured.. Our starter, a mixed platter, was well presented, creative and tasty, but unfortunately the springbok left a bad taste in our mouths. Our expectations were high, based on this restaurant's fine reputation, but we left feeling let down.

Le Bon Vivant provided a fancy atmosphere with some very good food. The prices were pretty reasonable as well. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and we would recommend this restaurant to others. It wasn't the best meal we had but it was definitely very good.

We had the tasting menu with wine paring and absolutely loved it! Beautiful food, beautifully presented. Staff very friendly and chef Pierre Hendriks came round to greet all the guests at the end. Excellent value for money and certainly would pay at least double+ for anything as good quality in UK.
