We were walking home from dinner and got sucked in by this really great guitarist and ended up Having either food or takeout baked goods the whole week. Great staff that really cares. If they used fresh herbs, red onion, crisped potatoes and capers they could take it up a notch and really fly!

Norwegian breakfast, good coffee for early 7am risers. very good staff. They are also open late after the Flamingo Resort restaurant closes. Their salad and pizza late in the evening was very appreciated. The Billy Folly Road is a challenge with automobiles scrapping bottom immediately next to their outdoor seating.

My husband and I were staying in the Flamingo Beach Villas, so it was just a short walk to Bon Appetit. We ordered pizza for lunch and had enough to take a couple of slices back to the room for another day. Another day we ate dinner there. Again the portions were large. My husband ordered pasta and I ordered... More

This spot had been recommended by several repeat staying guests at the Flamingo. Just around the corned and very convenient. Charming spot, nice street atmosphere. Food was ok. We made reservations with a sharp looking server and although he was working the night we dined, he did not serve us. Our server spoke little English and that was the least... More

Bon Appetite is our go to spot when in Saint Martin. We stay across the street at Simpson Bay so its very convient. We love their morning breakfasts, pastries, and pizza. We find ourselves here a few times on our trips for dinner al fresco with live music and martinis or wine. The seafood pasta is incredible. Two of us... More

We breakfast at Bon Appetit. While the food was passable, the service was lousy. We ended up with much of the table in the sun and it took 15 minutes and waving a server down before we were acknowledged; then, another 20 minutes to get food. As marginal as this trip was, upstairs is even worse--barely edible food and even... More

After looking at what looked like an interesting menu, we were a bit disappointed with the food. Starters, we had onion soup and mussels in white wine. Neither of them stood out as being anything special. I then had the Chicken Cordon Blue which was not that good at all, though I must say the mashed potatoes that came with... More

The food is excellent but the service is really drawn out and a few times, I felt like we were forgotten. Do not go here with a large group.
