Stopped on the way around island after diving. Beer was cold, had stewed goat with rice and beans. Very good.

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

We tried to eat here for lunch but the only three items being served - beef stew, goat stew, iguana stew - all had onions and I can't eat them. We had some cold drinks and moved on. The staff was friendly enough and the location was nice, just didn't work out.

Ok, that maybe is local place but most people inside were tourists. Price of food was really too high, 20$/person. Meal was ok, but just ok. Good but nothing special. You get better meal cheaper almost everywhere in Bonaire, so that place is not worth of visit.

Although a lot of visitors had no problem (the goat stew was good) I had fish and food poisoning from it. Inquieries on the island led to the conclusion that locals avoid it as they know it is dirty and at times serve old and deep frozen food. Although staff and setting is nice you'd better avoid this or at... More

If we knew how good Rose Inn was, we would've stopped here more often than just on our last day (well, we tried earlier but they don't do dinner). It's situated in the "other town" of Rincon, which in itself makes a nice sight, and is definitely a unique place in a nice garden with only outdoor seating. The goat... More
