The Bon Pavilion
Beautiful restaurant with a small but very interesting menu - different choices to tempt the palate. We were also offered specials of the night. The choices we made were mouth-watering and not choices that you would find in many other places. The staff were very helpful, informative and friendly to make our night a time to remember.
In all, a restaurant well worth visiting in the atrea.
Great food and cocktails. Servings were generous, friendly professional service.
Excellent menu including large wine selection. Absolutely delicious dinner with superb service! Can’t wait to go again !
Beautiful restaurant, caters well for those with children/babies, excellent food and wonderful staff. Perfect spot to celebrate a special occasion.
Service was great staff were helpful and accommodating food was awesome will definitely return
The team already remember us on a Tuesday and are attentive and helpful.
Came here to celebrate my first anniversary with my partner and we were not disappointed. Was lovely to see the place well attended on a Tuesday night too. The food was amazing. The cocktails were amazing. The price is a little bit higher than other places in the area but well worth the higher price tag. Love coming here.
Great food thanks to the chef, very enjoyable range of cocktails, great friendly service.
Everything was just wonderful as usual. Could not fault anything.
Our meals were luke warm and I had Alaskan Crab pasta was a little tasteless, wine is grossly overpriced we are in Gosford.
Food was great, had the lamb shoulder n duck potatoes , just wonderful combination. Yep had dessert has well, staff was attentive, big group made which made it very noisy. Otherwise wld recommend n defs going back again. It’s good to have fine dining so local. Thanks
2 expensive for what the meals are
It is a restaurant that should be in Terrigal not bogans gosford
Love this place - recommend it to everyone. Our waitress was fabulous.
A bit noisy and inappropriate music considering the average guest age. Food is good just not a fan of chips with mussels would rather have a bread option. Had to really look to have a refill for drinks and chips.
Amazing food, beautiful environment and great service by the lovely staff!
This was my 2nd time at The Bon. My girlfriend and I caught up for dinner and had the Monday night Vegan choice. It was delicious and so full of flavor. The waitstaff where friendly and accommodating. No question was annoying and they had an answer straight away.
I can’t wait to have another excuse to go back and dine here.
Great place to celebrate a special night. I would highly recommend
Alright but a bit pricey for Gosford not many vegetarian options
Always awesome! Staff rock!!
We were there for a special occasion and we would of loved to order dessert however the kitchen was closed and we weren’t informed. Our mains were cleared before 10pm which is the close time stated on the their website and when we asked for the dessert menu we were informed the kitchen is closed and it wasn’t even 10pm. If your going to close early it is your duty to inform your diners if they would like to order anything else before closing the kitchen.
Food took a very long time to come out and people that were seated well after we ordered received their meals much closer
We bought visitors here from California and had a beautiful lunch, they loved everything!
We had an awesome night. Special mention to our waitress, Molly who was outstanding
It was excellent service the food was great had a cracking time will go back again
Another outstanding meal at the Bon Pavilion. Entrees, mains and wine were impeccable. The Petuna Ocean Trout was cooked to perfection and with its delicious accompaniments was the highlight of the night. Well done Chefs.
The food was OK but nothing special, given the prices we were definitely expecting something better, it was no better than the local pub
Awesome place for dinner or a drink! The service was second to none, with funny, charismatic, friendly waiters and waitress who knew the menu and could recommend a great dish and the specials. Absoloutley loved it, will definitely be returning for some more food drinks and fun!
Service always starts so well, personal, professional and attentive, and then finishes so poorly (which is probably the main reason for this review) . For example, we would have ordered dessert however after asking for the menus we waited 15 minutes and then decided we were too full (breaking a fundamental principle of running a successful restaurant). When we booked through OpenTable we mentioned a special birthday of which dessert is an important moment. This was never mentioned.
For some reason the wait staff change midway through your service, which could be the source of the problem. The Bon would get more out of diners if they mastered the art of the server connection with customers.
The favourite menu item for the kids - Mac and Cheese had significantly changed in portion size and is now served in a small pan shaped dish instead of the deep bowl. Typically the kids cant get through this dish, on this occasion, it was gone in 5 mins. When we provided the feedback at the end, our second server was a little argumentative.
Finally, $2.50 for half a slice of sour dough continues to bother me. What happened to the good old days of bread for the table. I wouldn't mind paying if the bread were amazing, however there is nothing special about it. Bon Pavillion started with so much promise and is now becoming an arrogant and lazy version of a formerly great restaurant...and in such a short space of time.
Traveling through Gosford on a very rainy birthday weekend, we were so happy to find this gem. Great service, the food was delicious, and the space is quite something with it's large space and huge circular staircase. We loved the menu options, from the unique to the simplest, like the roasted chicken. Can't ignore the duck fat potatoes. Great addition to the weekend.
The service was great as soon as we arrived. All the staff were very friendly. The recomendations were 100%.
The food was soooo good. Value for money was very good. I would have given 5 stars for everything except it took too long to be able to settle the account.
Can not fault this restaurant everything was perfect!
The overall experience was fairly good, I think the food and drinks were excellent but not good value for money, the wait staff were generally very attentive
