used to be a great place before flying out of Maun but has now closed up. Klaus the owner for many years has moved on to pastures new at Tamalakane Lodge and I wish him well.

We had quite a wait till our flight left. The airport staff suggested we go to this café and wait there and they would come over and tell us when we could board the plane! So different to any other airport and even more as the airport is an international one! The coffee was hot but the eats were only... More

I love sitting at Bon Arrivee and watching people coming and going around the airport. To me this is so very much a part of Maun. There is not that much that can be said about the food or the service, but nothing beats the atmosphere of this place and spending some time with family/friends in Maun. By the way,... More

I was so excited to share a meal with my family at this restaurant. It was going to be one of our highlights of our stay in Maun, I thought. I was bitterly disappointed. My kids chose to eat the "hot dog" which we discovered was not a hot dog. We sat inside because the outside tables were full. It... More

The food isn't anything to write home about and the prices are on the high side for what you get but the location is very good.

If you have a bit of time before your flight out of Maun or to the delta, grab something at Bon.... Its unique and you get to see a little bit of the locals passing by:)

Meals are OK, interesting but not for the connoisseur. The Menu is a collectors item with an Aviation theme.

If you can cope with the heat, sit outside and watch Maun pass by. The location just across from the airport makes it a great place that attracts all types of tourists and locals. The food is average, the service a little slow but the atmosphere makes up for it.

I have visited this restaurant many many times. The service can be slow, but hey that's Maun. The occasional donkey might be seen to walk on by but it is still a good place to bide time waiting for a connecting flight. Dinners there are also pretty good.
