Super fresh ingredients and a fantastic harbor view combine with a menu that's a bit pricey and service that is friendly but slow.

Great service, nice ambiance, and it's got a water view but, between the four people in our party, we all agreed that the food is really just OK and certainly not worth the price we paid for it.

Excellent (fish) food and service. Good location. Busy though cosy atmosphere. Situated along a sometimes busy road. (especially during the weekend). Mainly older visitors detected. So not for the young ones apparently. They do miss something. The Boneirian who invited us told that this restaurant usually is full-up with guests during the week. Recommended.

The food was very average. My husband had the fish trio, I had the chicken coconut curry. My husbands fish was over cooked and boney. My chicken was OK too much sauce and little bits of chicken supposedly chicken breast but cut up so small you couldn't tell. There were only 2 tables of 2 with 5 or 6 servers... More

It Rains continues to be a favorite in Bonaire. The service is outstanding, the food is fresh and prepared to perfection. I got the trio of fishes so I could try a couple of options that I cannot find in the states- all were great. The Tuna starter was perfect for the two of us to share. Service outstanding the... More

we ate here as a change from our hotel restaurant. considering its name, most of the fish was imported from Europe, with only barracuda as a local offer. seems a bit weird given this restaurants location in the Caribbean. we shared salads to start which were very good, then had ok main courses which came with pretty poor, overcooked vegetables....

I had steak and husband had fish...both very good. Very romantic setting on the main street. This is one of the more expensive places to eat but worth it at least once while visiting.

In what I thought was the off season, we arrived at It Rains Fishes with out a reservation, at about 7pm. Good thing we weren't any later, because we might not have got a table! We had a take on ceviche, which was excellent (but not quite like I remember it in Lima Peru) and the fish soup. The main... More

View of the harbour. The food is nice. A bit too salty for my taste. Service is very good. The restaurant is nicely decorated and has it's own store.

Here you can enjoy a nice dinner in front of the sea. Barracuda was well cooked. We all enjoyed the food and service.
