Cramped, warm beer, unclean glass and nothing special about the food. How can this be rated as it is? What is wrong with people. I suffered claustrophobia in this place to be with friends. Worse still was the spending of the next day on the toilet. Never order the special (clearly microwaved up from an earlier mass production). Thumbs down.

Another dishonest review from somebody who probably never stepped a foot in our place and who just try to denigrate the top rated restaurant with sick and poor arguments, for reasons we don't know... It's boring, unpleasant, unfair, but also part of the game and finally no big deal... Indeed, smart people will keep things in perspective. ;-) More

Really had a fantastic experience : very very good food (réal French), fresh product, amazing service .. the owner is very gentle, kind.. You feel they care a lot. It's sometimes difficult to find a good restaurant in Davao or in Philippines. This one is super great, you can't be deceived .. Quiche Lorraine is the real one, French dressing... More

We lived in Davao City for more than 2 years and Bon Appetit! was by far our favorite restaurant. The atmosphere was great, the staff was friendly and the food was absolutely amazing. We were never disappointed!

I frequently visit Davao and as such, I've practically visited every good restaurant there is in the province. When my friends and I visited recently, we wanted something different so we checked TripAdvisor and saw Bon Appetit! as the number one restaurant so we decided to give it a try. Bon Appetit! is a small French restaurant tucked in a... More

Food is divine. Steak was wonderful (order it at least medium rare, for the love of manon). Do not expect large servings for the price. You can cross-order burgers from Burger Chef next door, which I also did (they have the same owner, I was told). Tried the apple tart for dessert - couldn't taste the tartness, though. Service is...

Mrs Gruntfuddock and i were desperate for some decent food in Davao, as unfortunately ( maybe due to to much american influence) the food here is disgusting. So, we were over the moon with Bon Appetite when we visited. Eve, the host was a would guy with good knowledge of the food (cooked by his lovely wife, who you can... More

After a quick search for places nearby and open on Sundays we decided to give bon appetit a try. The owner walked us through his menu with great passion. We planned to have a light lunch but ended up staying for hours, enjoying superb wines, top dishes, and one of the best apple tarts ever with homemade ice cream. A... More

We went to Bon Appetit on a warm Wednesday night. The taxi driver didn't know the place and we had to guide him using google maps. It is a small place with some tables outside - one of which we chose . The place was probably half full. We received a friendly greeting from the waitress which then set the... More

What can I possibly add that hasn't already been said numerous times? Not too much really. I reviewed this again because it really is and deserves to be the number one restaurant in Davao. Yves and his lovely bride work very hard to make sure that their food is not compromised by adding some Filipino Sugar Flavor to their dishes.... More
