What does bon appétit mean?
"Bon appetit" means literally "Have a good appetite", otherwise translated from the French to "Enjoy your meal" or very simply "Enjoy!". Bon appetit is used at the beginning of the meal. In good company, the meal should start when everybody is at the table. To let the participants know that no one else is expected, and it is fine to eat, the hostess will usually say "bon appetit", everyone else can say thank you, or repeat "bon appetit", and start eating.
