Dunedin, Florida – July 10, 2019 – Dunedin’s only waterfront restaurant, Bon Appétit, announced today it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence for the fifth consecutive year. The achievement celebrates ‘consistent excellence’ – a motto deeply rooted in the Bon Appétit culture for over forty-three years. The Certificate of Excellence award is earned through great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year.

“Our mission is simple, exceed our customers’ expectations every time they dine with us. A big part of our strategy, to make sure we’re on the right track, is to review our TripAdvisor reviews with the entire team. We make note of what we do right, and we use each opportunity as a chance to improve. Over the last five years, we’ve received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award, so it’s very exciting to see our efforts are working and now we’ve been entered into the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame as well,” said Bon Appétit Restaurant Manager, Christian Schrangl.

“TripAdvisor is excited to announce the recipients of the 2019 Certificate of Excellence, which for nearly a decade has celebrated businesses that have consistently received positive ratings from travelers and diners on the world’s largest travel platform,” said Neela Pal, Vice President of Brand, TripAdvisor. “This recognition allows us to publicly recognize businesses that are actively taking into account customer feedback to help travelers confidently experience the most highly reviewed places to eat, stay, and explore.”

The Certificate of Excellence accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
