Have visited on prior trips, and the Mona Lisa remains my favorite Bonaire eatery - a bit expensive, but the food, ambience and service are top notch. My husband has a food allergy which can often be a challenge - the staff at Mona Lisa were, as always, helpful and supportive.

Good place to eat in Bonaire. The atmosphere is very informal, the staff quite efficient and the food is good although limited to some specific plates (meat).

My family and I traveled to Bonaire a number of times between 1991 and 2000, but this was our first time back (2014). We were so happy to see that Mona Lisa was still in business. The food is OUTSTANDING and only wish we had more time to go back again and again!

Go there for a catch of the day or a delicious rib eye... everytning is good ... it is in the main street of Kralendijk. It can be warm inside , so make a reservation outside on the terrace ( only a few tables...). Prices are average. Good wine.

Visited twice, tried baracuda the first visit (you usually cannot go wrong with the catch of the day), very tasty, well prepared. Second time I did try out the special menu, appetizer was great (tuna sasimi), main course was ok, desert was an absolute delight (mango cheesecake). Overall good food, not great, but very good.

This is my second review after having had a total of 3 meals in this restaurant. The food here is superb. The service was a tad slower this time, but who cares when you're in Bonaire? My brother and I love seafood and we think we know when it's properly prepared. This last visit, the special was snook with red... More

One of the best restaurants on the island. The food is consistently excellent, very fresh and great service. We love the red snapper, French onion soup and the barracuda. Never have we been disappointed.
