Our group of 12 enjoyed a variety of meals. All of them were wonderful. Make sure you get the deserts!

This Restaurant has a new name and it has a new owner. It is called Sebastian's. The owner moved to Bonaire about 6months ago from Germany.

Here was an icon for years. Most of our friends and family would enjoy the atmosphere and good food every year we came to visti Bonaire. The end of an era. The food was good and many a time we would sit at the Bar with Richard and tell stories. Sorry to see you go.

Richard greeting us and our friends and then talked to us the entire night. Things were fine until he made a joke about clubbing seals - I then joked back about I was a PETA person and then the abuse started.

My wife and I were recently in Bonaire for a couple of glorious weeks and had the pleasure of dining at Richard's where the couple we were with had been previously. Richard does have this figured out, especially with everyone having a dietary need, want or desire. The menu has two or three choices of fresh fish and then several... More
