A Bonaire Must for lunch

After your northern dives (1000 steps, Tolo, Karpata), drive round into Rincon and stop at Rose Inn for the "coldiest beer," the best goat stew ever, and lots of Island attitude. Almost always playing is a local Rincon band (recorded music).

It was our second stay on bonaire - and the second visit at Rose Inn. Actually, we went there twice this time. We had baked bananas rice and a local speciality made from black beans and chickpeas and an perfectly prepared fried fish with vegetables and french fries. Both meals were excellent. Bring some time with you and enjoy the... More

What a great place! we have been threatening to stop here for years, and this year we finally did. Why we didnt come sooner is my only question. True to advertising they DO have the 'coldiest' beer I've found anywhere on the island. And their Goat Stew is to die for. All dishes are very filling, rice and beans and... More

Off the beaten path but went for lunch. It was so worth the car ride. Loved the fact that there is no menu and that Mom will wait on your table and tell you what is offered that day. Our lunches were so yummy that we cleaned every plate. Wonderful flavors and sauces. We would have gone back another day... More

After almost five years, being back on the Island, we visited again Rose Inn in Rincon for lunch. We remembered a cosy outside place with an outside kitchen, a relaxed atmosphere and many birds, amongst which a number of troupials. It is still all there, except the birds.... If you want a very relaxing lunch in an authentic Caribbean atmosphere... More

My wife and I stopped by today on our way around the island, I would disagree with the bad reviews. We each had a dinner and 2 beers and our bill was $35, the prices are pretty much the same on all of the island this was no different. I had the stewed goat, I love goat and eat it... More

We had a great lunch here enroute Washington Slagbaai Park. Limited options. We were offered fish, pork, or goat. We ordered the curried fish stew (fresh tuna) with rice and beans (or fries) and a salad. I tried their hot sauce to jazz it up more...good, but very hot!! :-) Huge lunch. Shady patio setting. Yes a little more $... More
