Tapas were good, reasonable size but a little too expensive for their size. Service was very friendly and efficient.

We chose La Guernica because of the setting: ocean front view, sunset and cool decor. The food and service, however, came pale in comparison of the setting. Our waiter was more interested in waving at the passing traffic than tending to us. When I asked him if the Ribs on entree menu are the same as the tapas, he said... More

This is a lovely place with a great view of the water. We ordered the chef's special which was a combo of the three fresh fish tapas. Each was cooked perfectly including the tuna which was cooked rare. Each came with a different sauce on top of which the fish was plated. Service was great and the prices very reasonable.

La Guernica is a very good tapas restaurant. But also the other meals are very good. The staff is very friend;y and take there time for a little conversation. The location is great, right on the boulevard. The prices are good.

I've been to La Guernica twice and really liked it both times. They advice 3-4 tapas per person, but if you are not a big eater, take 2 tapas and share the home made bread. There is a lot of choice, not only in tapas, but also in normal sized dishes. I don't think you have to wait very long... More

La Gurnica is an animated tapas restaurant, we had the chance to enjoy at dinner. A short waiting time (we had no reservations) lovely spent with a cocktail, before eating good tapas dishes spanish style- Good quality of the food, good service, reasonable price. Need to go there again at the first opportunity!

I eat here every year that I come to bonaire and its become a tradition. Very romantic atmosphere along the water, dimly lit, and cozy to share a bottle of wine with an assortment of tapas. This place seems pleasantly able to accommodate you unlike many restaurants along the waterside which require reservations. I have only eaten the tapas here... More

Very accommodating after being turned away from other nearby restaurants without a res. La Guernica was a delightful surprise! Open only for dinner, this mostly open-aired restaurant offers a nice selection of tapas as well as a full menu. Limited selection of wines by the glass but very good nonetheless. If you're looking for "fine-dining" this is not for you,... More

La Guernica is a nice place at the boulevard. It is not a luxurious place, as compared to a few other restaurants. For example, silverware is a bit of a heterogeneous lot, and so are the glasses. Outside seating is a bit cramped and the seats are a bit too uncomfortable for an elaborate dinner but, then again, they close... More

We decided to eat at La Guernica with four people. We had no reservation but we were friendly welcomed and shown to our table. All four of us ordered Tuna in green pepper sauce (one of the specials that night). It came prepared to perfection. We were very impressed with the service and quality of the food. Prices are very...
