    Totally amazing experience. Food delicious. Service from Maria exceptional. One little thing you could do is have some mist sprayers to keep it slightly cooler. Wonderful experience. Thanks

    Passion, energy and natural charm from the husband-wife team at Bistro BonBon. There's really nothing better than great food in an intimate setting with lots of personal touches.

    What a lovely evening.. This was the best meal of our trip by far. The "icing on the cake" was the piano playing of Alfio,it made a good evening great..
