We took the macaron making class and had a really great time! The owner and staff were really friendly, the atmosphere was great, and most importantly the final product was delicious! I would definitely recommend this to others and will very likely be returning for other classes.

This tour was an awesome experience! Richard was an excellent guide! Not only did we discover some new eats in the Market, but Richard made the tour very interesting with historic and product information on the different restaurants. We also enjoyed getting to know this new Canadian resident and shower him with Canadian kindness.

Wonderful afternoon on the "Taste of the Byward Market" today 9/9/2022. Our tour guide was Richard (his debut tour!). He was accompanied by Stephanie of C'est Bon. Both were lovely and friendly individuals. We were part of a group of seven and made to feel very comfortable and relaxed. It was an interesting and tasty tour and enjoyed everything we tried. We love Ottawa and this was a good value as food tours go! Thank you Richard. We hope to return for another tour or cooking class someday.

An absolute gem of an establishment! I took the "bread basics" class and had a blast making whole wheat, focaccia, and brioche buns. Maria was a wonderful and fun teacher, the instruction was clear, and the bread was delicious. Loved the enthusiasm and all of the extra helpful tips! Will definitely take more classes here.

Our daughters have taken many classes at C’est Bon over the last few years (during their tween/teen years) and they’ve loved every minute!! I love these classes/camps for them because they actually learn skills (knife skills, etc.) and proper cooking techniques. They come home with risotto, merengue, pho, you name it!!! I was specifically looking for a class that would offer more than the standard: “make your own pizza using a microwave” and we definitely found it with C’est Bon. Highly highly recommend!!! Oh and the girls get a kick out of Chef George’s jokes too 🙂

Fantastic experience for my 12 year old son who enjoys cooking. This was the best culinary camp experience in the city! Thank you so much for organizing such a wonderful experience for my son.

We did the Lower Byward market tour. Flavia, our guide, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The food stops were all excellent and our little group really enjoyed ourselves. A great experience if you want to learn more about the Byward market area and do something a little different. Go hungry and don't bother booking dinner out.... you will be full!
