Excellent seafood, meh service

The garlic shrimp appetizer was delicious! The fish entrees were also very fresh tasting, and the cocktails were done well. The reason for the four stars was because the server seems annoyed by us, and she took away our bread and sauces before we were finished. We had to ask for more bread, but... read more

We have eaten lunch and dinner here a number of times over our four visits to Bonaire...no more. The food itself is good, but nothing special. The prices are unreasonable (pasta with six shrimp at lunch for $30???). Service is perfectly friendly, but terribly slow. There are many better places to eat on Bonaire...we can't figure out what the attraction... More

We had a perfect diner of mahi mahi and barracuda after a pre-course of sushi and carpaccio. Good service, nice atmosphere and only confusion about the voucher of Oceanfront which said to get pre-course and main-course at Rains Fishes for $ 24,75, but they did not know about this. First they thought it was for free, than full costs and... More

Outdoor, but covered restaurant by the harbor. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Very good seafood but menu varied daily depending on the catch. Ate here twice during the week. Awesome churros for dessert.

There is something nice about sitting in a waterside restaurant with a nice breeze, but none better when being supplied with some of the tastiest treats Bonaire has to offer. We had Sashimi and a caeser salad, perfect on all accounts, presentation, flavour and that special touch that can only be felt when sitting in that idealic setting. So why... More

Four of us went to dinner during our vacation at this restaurant and it was excellent -- again! We had also come here last summer for lunch with all our children but this time it was just the adults for dinner. The service was lovely and our waitress was attentive and fun. Again -- things are not as quick as... More

We went to It Rains Fishes on the recommendation of our hotel staff. The location of the restaurant is fantastic, right on the water. The views, especially the sunset were to die for. The food on the other hand did not measure up to the hype. It was quite good but no so great. In fact it was so unmemorable... More

Very good seafood place. They also serve steaks. There is a fish market open all day to buy fresh fish to cook at home. Make reservations. Great sunset views. An upscale environment but no need to get dressed up.
