Lunches were about $15 a plate. Enjoyed the goat stew, and sampled the different sides. The let us have smaller portions of most of the sides. Instead of just fries or rice and beans, I had both of those, plus fried yucca, and the grey purple loaf(I forget the name). Also, came with a few plantains and a small salad.... More

So local, so bizarre. Don't mind the dogs or the general chaos of it all. Just grab the very, very cold beer and whatever they are serving and catch the wave. A great place to loll away the afternoon when you just want to get away from it all.

a fitting destination after a very picturesque drive to Rincon. Great food, try the goat stew! Staff is friendly and location is great.

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

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
