    Our first visit to the restaurant - we went there based on a recommendation and were not disappointed. It was quiet (just before the Covid-19 lockdown) but the service and the food were not affected. Attentive waiter who explained the menu well. The food was delicious - differently presented, tasty and well prices - and we are keen to return to try out the lunch menu and enjoy other parts of the venue which all looked very appealing. Would feel very comfortable to recommend Bistro BonBon to others
