Starter Great, My wife had carbonara ok I ordered the mix grill, (£30 expected more) and it appeared the waiter asumed that was the fish (I had the specials menu in hand and was unaware of the fish option) as a result we waited 40 + minutes for the main course. I had chocolate cheesecake which was disappointing.

Buon Apps is in a beautiful setting and a very attractively appointed restaurant. The staff were welcoming and efficient and very helpful in taking on board my dislike of chilli. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed in the food. My husband and I both had chicken in different guises but both were described as "escalopes". However, the chicken was actually in pieces not a thin escalope and my husband's dish was extremely dry and tasteless. My dish was served with the majority of the chicken and sauce on top of the saute potatoes, making them soggy which was a pity, as they were actually very nice. The sauce also missing seasoning. It all lacked a bit of wow factor. We would probably give Buon Apps another go, as maybe we just hit an off day and perhaps the fact that we had to eat at 1.30 pm meant the kitchen was getting a bit back endish!

Really enjoyed our evening. The staff were very attentive and the restaurant had a busy bustling atmosphere. The food we picked was very nice and I would recommend the rhubarb gin and sambuca cocktail! The drinks are a little pricey but as a treat it is worth it!

This restaurant is set in a lovely location, the food is amazing, never been able to make It to dessert yet always full after the main. The staff are the most friendly I've met in the industry and when you bring all of this together it is 100% worth 5 stars.

Service is always excellent. Our Main Course took quite a long time to arrive but the waiter did keep apologising. We opted for the Valentine Menu, but was disappointed with the food and did not think it represented good value for money. The Meat sharer was nice but not worth £28 and the Tomahawk steak was very disappointing, very grizzly and certainly not worth £60. We always enjoy our experience at Buon Apps but always feel slightly let down by the quality of food versus the price charged.

I would have given you five stars for service except there was a delay in clearing our main course at which stage we were ready to pay the bill. Overall the meal was excellent, and it says it all that we have booked again for this Thursday. Could we have one of the two seater tables overlooking the river. Many thanks.
