This restaurant is right on the main drag in the center of town. The food is excellent. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Large outdoor space with some indoor seating as well. We sat next to their wall of spice plants that the staff regularly harvested for the meals they were preparing. If you are looking for fine dining,... More

When we eat out at Bonaire, we would normally pick a TripAdvisor-good restaurant and leave there about $40 per person. Appetite can easily cost double that. However, if you can afford it, it's worth a try, especially their 'surprise menu'. I would recommend 'surprise with wine', as each dish would be accompanied by matching wine, and you don't have to...

Beautiful dining experience with a lovely courtyard, excellent service, and delicious food! I went with my mom and we did the surprise menu where they bring you a dish that the chef prepared and you have no idea what you are going to get. A great way to truly experience the local cuisine. They can also do this menu with... More

My wife and I had dinner here last evening. Very lovely courtyard type seating. It felt comfortable and cozy. This is a resturaunt for a "Nice Night Out" Good food, nice presentation, proper wait staff timing. Try to visit when "Michele" is singing. This will make your evening perfect.

First, the open air courtyard in the back is such a pleasant place to dine. They have kept the tables openly spaced and the result is a sense of air and privacy not available in many of the more cramped locations on Bonaire. Service was appropriately warm and attentive without being invasive. We recommend the Chef's Surprise. You can request... More

We stopped in for lunch right at noon when they opened and the place was empty. They sat us in a beautiful, breezy, shaded courtyard. The ambiance was very nice and the music was relaxing. Our sandwiches were fantastic. The flavours were well balanced and portions generous. They prices were fantastic as well.

We tried the "3 Course Surprise Menu" and it was the worst thing ever. Raw fish smelled which should have been our sign to run but we were failed by Trip Advisor and the reviews… My husband got the 3 glass wines as well and each and every time we had to like tackle a person to get them to... More

My husband and I had dinner at Appetite last night. We did the surprise menu, 4 courses. We had bread with olive tapenade (not part of the courses). Course #1 was Bouillabaisse. #2 was Smoked duck, and it was delicious. Neither of us had had much duck before, and it was nicely done. #3 was tenderloin, and #4 was a... More

We walked into Appetite without a reservation & the staff told us that they were booked. However, the lady behind the bar suggested that if it was okay with us, we could eat at the bar so that is what we did. What a great meal. My wife started with the soup of the day which was an asparagus soup... More
