We had the surprise menu. It was fantastic, wonderful tastes, interesting wine pairings. Nothing too much trouble for Pierre when one of our party was allergic to shell fish. Highlights include the enthusiastic service, funky light fittings(!) watching the calm kitchen prepare the fantastic food. Save space for dessert - this should have received a standing ovation!

Justifiably recommended by our B&B, this up market restaurant ticked all the boxes and more. The environment is modern, staff well trained and efficient, the menu and wine list extensive and the food just superb. The attention to detail of the masterpieces of food that the chefs produce is of the highest French quality. A wonderful dining experience.

We arrived early as the first guests. That meant really good service and time for explaining.
The building was very nice with several rooms and nice colours.

Our meal was outstanding. A starter with prawns - oh, so good! And a beef for main also delicious not to mention the desert of chocolate. That was to die for!

We wish we could go back also this evening!
Our waitress so attentive and friendly - wish I remembered her name.

We would recommend Le Bon Vivand to anyone!

I love this place. Tucked into a house off the main street with nice indoor and outdoor seating, the food is amazing and creative and the service is super friendly. Highly recommended!

Very nice meal - in fact excellent meal - had to go back for seconds and not disappointed

The sample starter to die for - stay away from the sample desert!! I tried it and they had to push me out on a wheel chair - enough carbs to keep a small twon going for a week

Took friends back and all very happy -

Not sure why this is not better supported as in summer a lovely garden to sit in - interior a bit stark for me but the food makes up for it.

staff friendly and attentive
