Not the greatest fish in the world for sure! the prices are pretty expensive and sometimes you can taste the fish is not fresh or that it was frozen Location is great and the service is nice

The atmosphere and the fish were great. I had risotto served with my fish that was over the top yummy. I really like the open air feeling of the restaurant. Service was good, and the drinks from the bar were very good.

This is our favorite restaurant on the island for the food and excellent service. The restaurant is waterfront with a tremendous view of the sunset.

It rains fishes remains a consistent favourite on Bonaire. Lunch burger is magic. Mix drinks a treat. Wine by the glass is reasonably priced and ice cold (white). Food is good if not spectacular. Salads are excellent. Deserts less so. The best thing is the space and the staff which are peer less on the island and keeps us coming... More

We had dinner once and came back twice for lunch at It Rains Fishes, because it is just a nice place with good food. At night, the restaurant is fully booked, but for lunch it is less crowded. Dinner was good with a variety of fish (but also non-fish if you like) and for lunch we had a delicious Japanese... More

Went for lunch, spendy but good quality. The staff service was slow and unprofessional, but that's normal in Bonaire

We loved this place so much on our last visit that we returned again this time. Great to say that the food, wine and service remains excellent. the restaurant also has a great location on the boulevard overlook the sea. My only criticism would be that we booked a table - at the time, there were no other reservations for... More

We were a party of nine and every single one of our entrees came out at different times. Our table was being cleaned from one end while our party at the other end was still waiting for entrees. For such a higher end restaurant you would think the owners would higher wait staff with experience especially with larger groups. The... More

The staff is very efficient and roundly (mostly dutch). We started with the ceviche which was very good (not as good as the one offered by Bistrot de Paris) and enjoyed a snapper entree with a great bottle of Chiliean sauvignon blanc. This was of the priciest dining options on the island but well worth the trip. Note: the tap... More
