Escape the festive hustle and bustle and relax with a warm welcome and a cold glass of champagne at The Bon Vivant. Our festive menus celebrate the best of local, seasonal produce enhanced by our cocktails and perfect wine pairings created by our award-winning bartenders.
With lunch available from 12-5pm and dinner from 5 till 10pm we are sure to be able to create the perfect experience for you.
We offer a regularly changing menu, which includes an eclectic range of dishes promoting regional and locally sourced produce.
Our bar bites allow people to pick and choose tapas style, trying all of what our menu offers.
With their great product knowledge our staff can guide our customers in their culinary decisions.
We have an ever-changing cocktail list, a broad and accessible champagne list, a comprehensive wine list and a gantry stocked full of classic and rare spirits.
We take a unique approach to our wine list by offering all 44 wines by the 175ml glass, 500ml carafe or by the bottle. We conduct blind tastings with the customers, promoting smaller boutique wines and more unheard of varietals.
The Bon Vivant was opened in August 2008 by Stuart McCluskey with an idea to create an environment that was similar to those found on the continent; where dining is often informal and casual yet of a very high standard.
Our food philosophy is a selection of simple but well executed dishes that focus on flavour and quality produce. We do as the Europeans do, eat small but with thought.
Whether you fancy a bottle of Champagne, a pint, or a wee dram with friends, The Bon Vivant aims to cater for all tastes.
We are open 12pm – 1am. – Food served daily 12pm – 10pm.
