It is difficult to find fresh fish in Bonaire. Grocery stores carry almost exclusively frozen (and unfrozen) fish. This restaurant serves (and also sells) fresh fish . The atmosphere is very nice, just across the street from the water. The fish was excellent, and so the wine. Service was very good. I suggest reserving in advance to get a table... More

Wonderful atmosphere, right on water. Clean, up to date, above average help. Our waitress was cheerful and very helpful. Food was prepared exactly as we ordered. Husband had fresh fish and I had the steak, all was excellent.

I am currently on Bonaire for business. I visited this restaurant for a meeting over dinner. We had ordered the catch of the day which consisted of several daily caught fish. We both went for the Red Snapper. The staff was very warm and the food was served in a timely manner. Also the wine was of good quality. I... More

Service, spotless, lots of serving dishes and amenities with the bread basket. Good ceviche and fresh fresh fish we bought tuna loins from the fish market as well. Our last night we chose here to go out with a bang!

Seafood seafood seafood! If it's not your thing I suggest you pass. Decent portions and reasonable prices. Food was good. I had the wahoo and my husband the tuna. They say the creole seasoning is the best they offer it everywhere on the island, but tastes like glorified tomato sauce everywhere we had it.

Great dinner. Great service. Fresh EVERYTHING. Perfect location. Walked from the Divi. Went late with no reservations and got a nice waterfront table. Would definitely go back.

We were so glad we returned to this marvelous restaurant. It is surely among the best on Bonaire. I had perfectly grilled barracuda, a favorite fish perfectly prepared. And their mango sherbet, made with only mango and sugar, is a real treat, much better than I expected. The setting, across a small road from a marine, is lovely.

Even though we hadn't reserved ahead of time, we were able to walk in, although I think we got lucky. While there wasn't a separate gluten free menu, I had a lot of choices and the wait staff was very attentive to the gluten free restriction. As always, I would just double check, but I certainly felt they knew what... More

We were one of the first guests of the evening. We did not have a reservation, Although there were several tables without reservations, we could not change our assigned table to one of those which we would have preferred. Ordering was a real chore, as my husband had to explain several times that he did not want the fish duo,... More
