I only have good things to say to this restaurant. First, the service is just five star! The owners will really approach you and ask how are you finding their food and give recommendations upon ordering. My friend and I had a good chat with the owner couple at the beginning, during and even after our dinner.😊 It was lovely.... More

We celebrated our departure from Davao with a family reunion at Bon appetit. Food and service were excellent, Yves and Rosalie charming and discreet at the same time. Dishes are inspired from our grand mothers' traditional recipes and made up with local fresh ingredients sourced in the mountains behind Davao. "Delicieux" and highly recommendable, bravo !

Ate at your restaurant when I was there in January. Trip advisor blocks me from actually writing the review I intended. The brief and friendlier version- your good is average, you treat your staff badly making anyone with a conscious uncomfortable I'll never eat there again.

Cher Monsieur, Our management is demanding as we want our staff to do there best to meet the needs of our patrons and to try to reach the standards of a French restaurant. According to the previous reviews that I invite you to read, it works pretty good... If it happens sometimes that the service is not fast our efficient... More

Cozy brasserie serving traditional French fare... stared off with Charcuterie platter, vegetable soup and steak tartare, Chicken fricase... charcuterie platter offered two types of ham - each was yummy and distinct from each other; vegetable soup was a thicker cream based offering of flavor and body; steak tartare was by the owner himself for me - Yves and sublime... my...

We took the team out to this restaurant. A warning, is this a French restaurant run by husband and wife who are French. This means the food looks and tastes "French" and like all French people, the dessert is as important as the rest of the meal. I loved every bit of the experience

We came short in money and tried to eat everything that will fit our budget. We thought that because we chose the low cost food we will not be satisfied but we were wrong. Every food we ate is perfection. You can taste the passion of the person who cooked it. It's a very fun experience.

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
