Try one of their brunch options with croissants and crepes, the best ever. It's just like being in France except the staff are so much friendlier.

We're from the states, visiting beautiful New Zealand and didn't have French food on the mind when we stumbled on this little find. We travel to France often, LOVE France actually. So when we saw how many people were eating here for lunch and how authentic the menu looked in the window, we were sold! Bonjour does NOT disappoint. In fact, I'd safely say their food was better than many bistros we've been to in France. The people were French and cared very much about the presentation of our meal, the wine or cider to serve with it, every detail. Why? Because they're French! : ) We had another couple sitting next to us who had driven from there home many miles away just because they love this restaurant too. In fact, we ended up closing down the restaurant with a very long lunch just sitting and talking with the other couple and of course the family that owned the restaurant just let us linger. It really was just like being in France, and my gallette, my husband's steak and frites, and our crème brulee, AND the French wine and cider we had.... perfect. Merci Bonjour. Tres bien!!!!

We loved this place so much that we travelled from Queenstown to Arrowtown on two different occasions just to go here.
The waiter greatest us with 'bonjour' and we soon realized he was actually French, as were many of the other staff. They either had on the back of their shirts 'I'm French' or 'I'm not French' which was quite quirky.
The decor and atmosphere definitely made you feel like you were in Paris, and the menu was also traditionally French. From escargot to Crepes to cheeses and everything in between. Each time we had a huge breakfast with pastries and we were left feeling very full and satisfied. It's hard to put into words how wonderful this place is. Just do yourself a favour and visit this lovely little place!!

Amid expensive fine dining food in Queenstown and Arrowtown, Bonjour is a fabulous good value find, serving exquisite French Food at appropriate prices. Service was helpful, meals arrived promptly and were delicious, choice was sufficient to satisfy 4 people with quite different tastes. Bonjour is a small restaurant on a side street in the front section of a shop run by the proprietors who have been in this shop for many years. Very France. We wish that Bonjour was in our neighbourhood in Sydney.

Called in for lunch today and requested the salad starter as a main. A large bowl of very tasty salad with dressing arrived, ample for a very enjoyable lunch.
