After reading about Cactus Blue on Tripadvisor, we had to try it. Unfortunately, there was no lion fish, but we'd heard the burgers were to die for. Well...Cactus Blue lived up to the hype. Not only is the food truck adorably decorated, the owner is very friendly and knowledgeable about island facts, and the food was amazing. Definitely one of... More

We went early to try the lionfish sandwich, but Hagen didn't have any. The six of us ordered the Kite burger which we loved! We will go there several times next year. You had to eat sitting on a rock or standing, but we didn't care. We dove twice then stopped by to watch Hagen cook our burgers and for... More

The setting just make the experience even better. Sitting on the beach in a bean bag chair eating one of the best burgers I have ever had is something special. Get the spicy one for a better flavor and remember to bring your own beer for an added kick. After a day of diving it doesn't get much better. You... More

We came here one day for a rather late lunch and we had a burger here which was really good. We decided to come back the very next day earlier so we could try the Lionfish burger we heard so much about but he didn't have a big catch that day and was already out. We ended up having the... More

After all the amazing reviews (and our major love of food trucks) we made a point of seeking out Cactus Blue at our first opportunity to snag these apparently delicious lion fish burgers. One word - disappointed. The fellow running the truck wasn't friendly - a bit gruff - and I actually found the lion fish burger rather bland. It... More

Quirky little trailer near Windsock with a very nice and personable chef and delicious food. The lion fish sandwich was great. A friend got the burger with jalapeños. She loved it.

Must to visit !! Easy relax and the best burger on the Island. Taste and enjoy. Home made burgers also for vegetarian. Unfortunately, he is not open every day and only during lunchtime !! We come back good food after a kitesurf morning !!

We organised a goodbye party for a co-worker who decided to leave our beautiful Bonaire and move back to the Netherlands. To treat him with a relaxed beach BBQ on one of the nicest location on Bonaire, we contacted Chef Hagen at Cactus Blue on the Beach. He was immediately enthusiastic and promised to arrange a prIvate beach BBQ for... More

This guy is awesome. So friendly. Great food. We found ourselves short on cash and he even let us come back the next day to pay him for the food we ate. Burgers (lion fish and meat) were terrific.

After a 2 hour Kiteboarding lesson in the ocean my favorite lunch is a Kite Burger and an Amstel Bright. My favorite Lunch on the Island by far. Have not tried the Lion Fish burger and probably never will !!!!!! Yes there is out door seating !!! And very Scenic !!!
