Italian in the Tropics?! Yup!

Mona Lisa an Italian gem in Kralendjik, Bonaire. If you have been repetitive diving for days on end followed by dinner focused on seafood Mona Lisa is a great place to get something different.

We went with a group of 9.. the price was equivalent to what you would pay for a sit down restaurant on the island.. no dress code, open air.. but the food was great.. The service good.. I would return in a minute!!!

The food at Mona Lisa was good. But what we really liked was sitting outside on the main street in town - watching the world go by.

We've been coming to Bonaire for 15 years and Mona Lisa is always our favourite and most frequented restaurant. The restaurant itself has a lovely menu. We tend to sit at the bar, though, for more entertainment. Hans is the barkeep, one of the owners, and the most efficient and amazing man- serving drinks to those at the bar, getting... More

This was a nice break away from our Dive Group of 60 for a romantic dinner. Table cloths, candles, bottle of wine, great food and service. The menu is limited and it is a bit pricey, but you are paying for the ambiance. My wife had the Wahoo which was the "catch of the day" and I had the trio... More

Went to Bonaire on a cruise ship. The Cruise Director requested we try and eat at one of the restaurants in Bonaire. Well we tried. All the restaurants had Reserved Signs on all their tables. We asked if they could make room for us. We wanted to have dinner. We went into the bar area of Mona Lisa. Sat at... More

If, like us, you forget to make reservations, and get sat inside you may feel hot, like I did. I had the Filet Mignon and it was cooked to perfection with a pleasant mushroom sauce. Everyone else said they liked their food. Desert--some home made cheese cake concoction was heavenly. All in all service and food were great....I just couldn't... More

Ambiance is good. Place is really charming, especially the bar area: you feel like you're in Europe. The food is tasty, hearty. Good for a big group, and families. Service was a bit slow but the food was worth the wait.
