Gnocci are delicious!

Great view, wonderful service, and delicious gnocci make this one of our favourites on Bonaire. The server made a fantastic red wine sangria.

The Italian restaurant does not exist anymore. The place is closed and the only Italian thing left is a little flag.

Although we can't comment on the entire menu since we always order fish when on island, this little place seems unappreciated! Huge mista salad, dressed as you see fit, along with reasonably priced wine. Homemade bread. I can't seem to order anything except the fish pasta--memorable favors! I ask for a little hot sauce, too, and the dish never disappoints.... More

Really enjoyed a dinner party I attended at La Barca. The food was delicious and the service, friendly and attentive.

Booked a reservation at La Barca (after discovering that Carpaccio is closed on Tuesday) based on the many recent, great ratings. Clearly something has changed at this restaurant since those reviews. We started with salads, which were simple but fine. The entrees, however, were generally inedible. Two of us had gnocchi, which were hand made but not by someone who... More

Went here in June, 2011, and had a wonderful meal! My partner surprised me in June, 2013 with a surprise birthday for a group of 20 of us. And we went back a few nights later for more. The dining is superb, and the food was excellent as always. Loved the attention to detail in the preparation. I'm still amazed... More

12 of us had gone to La Barca to celebrate a friends birthday. (Happy Birthday Andrea!!) We had called ahead and asked for a large table to be arranged and a surprise birthday cake with candles. They had said they would be happy to help us celebrate. The food was delicious and the service was great. Everyone loved it. The... More

This place is all outdoor seating with the kitchen being on an old dry docked boat. We enjoyed a great sunset as it is on the water in downtown. Service was good and the food was also good. My partner ordered the mahi-mahi and just as we were ordering, a man pulled up and brought out two fresh-caught mahi-mahi. Doesn't... More

We walked by this place during the day, and thought it was so cool we resolved to come eat there at night. The restaurant has small tables under fairy lights in the front overlooking the water, and a huge blue and white boat is built into the front of the house - it is a unique sight, and makes for...
