We had a lovely time the host sat us at a table outside the food was amazing my only negative comment would be our waitress she came across quite rude for the money we spent I’d expect a more friendly service. All other staff were fantastic so i was happy to pay the service charge. We didn’t let it spoil our meal.

We frequently dine out at Buon Apps and always have a lovely evening, it’s a bit more expensive but worth it for the location beside the river, great food, team and atmosphere. This is the first visit since Covid and we felt the restaurant implemented the recommended guidance extremely well and we felt very safe with the measures the restaurant team have in place. This was evident at from the initial booking enquiry as they were keen to insure minimal mixing of households as there were 9 of us in our party. Thanks for a great experience and we will be back soon.

We really enjoyed our anniversary meal out at Buon Apps. It was our first visit. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was really tasty. The social distancing, one way systems and cleanliness made us feel at ease. Thank you for making our evening special. We shall definitely return.

Can't fault the service and atmosphere but the food and drink is far too expensive. £25 for a mediocre bottle of wine is way over the to. I had prawns and smoked salmon for starters and the prawns were tasteless. The bill for two came to over £110.00. Outrageous

Lovely food and setting but you do pay the highest of premiums for it.

Thank you for leaving a review Michael. I’m pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit. I note your comment about "... premiums ...'. All I would say is that to operate a restaurant like Buon Apps - the beautiful building, the quality interiors, the well-tended garden terrace - these all cost money to provide. There are indeed cheaper places to eat, but I would argue that when looked at in the round, the experience as a whole does not equal that offered at Buon Apps. I hope we’ll see you again soon. Grazie, Alessandro.

Had a lovely lunch outside overlooking the river. It was my first meal out since lockdown restrictions eased and the systems the restaurant has in place made me feel safe, without spoiling the dining experience. Excellent all round.

During lockdown we did enjoy collecting and consuming ready meals and subsequently taking an occasional al fresco morning coffee but it was a delight to return to the restaurant for a birthday celebration meal! Throughout the Covid crisis we have exercised caution in where we have chosen to visit based on our need to feel secure. We trust Alex, Elena and the team hence our decision to eat our first meal out since late March at Buon Apps. The effort and attention to detail that must have gone in to reopening must have been a real challenging. Thank you Buon Apps we’ll continue to keep the faith and will see you again soon.
