Monique, server extraordinaire, waited on us in 2008 and to our surprise is still here. She goes out of her way to accommodate you. tuna, wahoo or other fresh fish are Offered grilled or with creativ sauces...I had truffle sauce! They have a potato Au gratin for the table which rocks. Reasonable prices for such quality.

We have been patronizing Mona Lisa for about two decades and NEVER have been disappointed. Its continental cuisine always is excellent. The menu is simple, but has sufficient variety to satisfy a wide range of tastes. Fresh local catch always is available. Service is prompt, efficient, and courteous. Wines are excellent and modestly priced. Dining is indoors or out, but... More

Hubby and I enjoy trying new restaurants but also like returning to old favorites. We lucked in to a table near the door (better ventillation as we are non-smokers), ordered the catch of the day (wahoo and barracuda) and had an excellent meal. The fish was lightly covered in a bleu cheese sauce. Scalloped potatoes and bread with garlic and... More

This restaurant was downtown in the touristy cruise boat area. But we went there at the recommendation of locals. We were glad we did. We had an excellent meal, primarily steaks. We would return.

Not sure where the others were going but this is far from the best in Bonaire. It is located at the main street so is very accessible. The wine list is not very complete compared to some others in the area. The food portions are miniscule and the meals are extremely overpriced. The food is tasty but definitely not worth... More

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.
