I don't hand out 5 bubbles all willy-nilly; this restaurant earned every bit of every bubble!! We came for lunch and had the patê plate and chicken salad on a baguette. Lunch was so delicious that we made the 30 minute drive again for dinner! We both had filet mignon au poivre and it was as delicious as I expected.... More

Great food but expensive and sold with the real old style French attitude, as in: You are just the client, what matters to me is the food. Grumpy owner can be outright unpleasant, almost like a Prairie Home companion skit on French restaurants. That said, the chef is a real pro, his pastries are just like in France and delicious...

Good food and nice ambiance like being in Provence. Nice selection of French wines and an opportunity to practice your French while you are there.

I've always loved the pasteries at La Bonne Bouche, I've been coming here since they first opened even before their expansion. I always bring my out of town guests here for lunch, it's really like a little bit of France, the decore, the owners, the plates and the great food especially the pasteries! They never disappoint. Great coffee too!

We decided to splurge for our wedding anniversary and it was well worth it. This is a charming little French restaurant in downtown Lake Worth, Our hosts were most gracious and welcoming. The escargot was absolutely the best ever, presented in a crock with wonderful oil and mushrooms and garlic. The entrees of crab and duck were equally enticing. The... More

This is the most charming little French restaurant, with a beautiful outdoor garden. Service is lovely. One small problem - really disappointing, poorly prepared food. I had the quiche - which didn't seem fresh and had absolutely no flavor. My husband had the salad nicoise which was the worst he's had, despite the fact that this is a real French... More

We took my mother here when we visited her in Lake Worth in May. The waitress and the chef were both welcoming. The waitress described some of the dishes and the chef owner also came to our table to explain how he prepares the dishes and to suggest a wine to accompany our meal. My mom had the onion soup...

This place started out as a bakery and coffee shop. Owner operated (Eric is French, his wife is American, the daughter also works here now), it has managed to become one of Lake Worth's best kept secrets: a real French bistro. There are tables both indoors and outdoors. All the French classics are available here. Also excellent salads, quiches, selection... More

The restaurant is just average. I lived in France for 4 years and I was excited to have french fare instead I got french attitude and not so good food.

Description
La Bonne Bouche started out 15 years ago as a little French lunch and pastry shop with only 5 tables. They' ve become a charming French bistro serving wonderful dinners on their flower covered terrace with music on the weekends and still serving those delicious lunches and pastry. The dinner menu is short but changes daily and special orders are welcomed. The lunch menu is simple and fresh- salads, sandwiches on their own baguette, soups and quiches and you'll always find a special du jour. Lots of French ambience complete with gruff French chef. Bon Appetit!
