I don't usually leave reviews but in this case I simply had to -- the food and service were that good! Loved every bite of my starter, main and dessert, they were absolutely amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food and a friendly atmosphere.

Great restaurant with excellent service and a really good choice of food & wine I had mussels to start and it was a huge potion and really tasty the monkfish had for a main was also excellent. The restaurant is great but quite small so you do need to book

Four of us enjoyed a lovely mid week meal. The restaurant is not large adding a more intimate feel. Staff were very friendly and the food we had was very nice. I had the wood pigeon for starter (special board) and duck for main both of which were lovely. The pigeon had a good game taste to it and cooked... More

This little restaurant is a real gem! Booking is a must as the restaurant has very limited space, however don't let that fool you, the food is absolutely amazing. Portion size is very decent and the quality of food is that you would expect from top end restaurants. Presentation and value for money is high, this little restaurant will not... More

Always very good food, excellent choices across the menus on the board and on the specials board, always so well presented on the plate. Very good house wines + a very good wine list. We and our friends always enjoy eating in Bon Appetit because it's small and cozy. We have eaten there since Mark first opened the restaurant and... More

What a little gem to find in this small area. Fantastically cozy atmosphere, with knowledgeable and happy to help staff, not forgetting the awesome view. It... More

We visited on a Saturday evening. The earliest we could get a table was 8.15pm. I was surprised at how small the place is. However very cosy and has a great view of the harbour. We were really impressed with the menu and even more when the food arrived, it was fantastic. The staff are friendly but unobtrusive. We would... More
