    We enjoyed the set price lunch and French wine with our friend who recommended it to us. The food was excellent as was the service. We would love to return.

    Good little French restaurant. Beef tartare was divine. The mains could have had a bit more flavour. Steak and the FOD. Overall a very pleasant experience.

    The croquettes of the day was amazing. I could have had it a main. The slow cook lamb shoulder was so tender. I wish I had room for cheese! Can’t wait to go back. Merci Bon Ap

    I always enjoy the food, wine and service at Bon Ap'. I will always come back when I want to feel transported to somewhere in France. The menu is uncomplicated and authentic and I enjoy the selection of wines available.

    Really good food, GF options carefully selected for two of our party of seven. Helpful and excellent service. We love Bon Ap, but it was a little noisy. Lovely Burgundy bubbles, enjoyable evening.

    Lovely little place serving French classics in a modern manner without being trite. Could be nice to see some regional specialities that aren't so famous in the future. We ate very well and were stuffed by the time we left. Snails were lovely in garlic and parsley. Mussels in cider and cream were delightful and ample bread was provided to soak up the gorgeous juices. The gnocchi Parisienne were silken with ample spinach to cut through the richness. I'd never had steak tartare and loved it- won't be everyone's think obviously but I'd recommend getting the smaller serve no matter how keen you are- it was a heck of a lot of meat!
