A Dinner Table Mouthful! How to Say 'Bon Appétit' in 15 Languages Across Europe

 

The French phrase, “Bon appétit,” is often used as a substitute for the lack of an English phrase of the same meaning. While you might hear, “Enjoy your meal,” Bon appétit is one of the most common ways of greeting someone before they chow down.
