Nice island food, fresh local fish.

This is a good place to eat on Bonaire. Almost always fresh local fish. I recommend getting their signature fish soup.

Great meal! Great staff! This must be one of your stops for dinner while on the island! We had French onion soup...delish! For an entree we had the daily catch of the day- Rainbow Runner. It was cooked perfectly. Was to stuffed for desert but what I saw at other tables, I bet it was good. There is also a... More

While there isn't a huge variety, what we both chose was delicious. The wahoo was cooked perfectly, as was the ribeye. The ribeye had a very tasty red wine reduction with carmelized onions. The scalloped potatoes were also amazing. My favorite part was the dessert though. I had the mango cheesecake with strawberry sorbet...it was sublime! It was actually the... More

This was our third visit to Mona Lisa and we have been pleased every time. We called ahead for a table outside (if it were not available we would have chosen another night). We have had the same server each time (Monique – I think she handles all the outdoor tables and she's been there a long time). She has... More

We saw that Mona Lisa was generally busy so we decided to give it a try. When we sat down, our waitress brought us our menus and we placed our drink order. As soon as we opened our dinner menus, we were appalled to see the prices. Every restaurant that we had been to so far had reasonable prices but... More

I have been to several restaurants on the island and was very impressed by the food at this place. Had the schnitzel which was 9/10 in my book (and I have have been to Austria and Germany several times where they know how to do this dish, so that says something). Beware that the price point for this place is... More

Mona Lisa has been here for decades (and strangely enough, the menu appears unchanged). We didn't even intend to dine here, but found our first choice closed and the specials board lured us in. There are only 2-3 tables outside, though the entire place is more or less open to the street. Inside, it is a bit dark with low... More

We went to this restuarant base on the reviews. The catch of the day was wahoo and tuna. We decided to go with the tuna. The tuna wasn't bad, but wasn't really good either. I'm no chef, but the tuna was about two inches thick. It may have been better if wasnt so thick. I would try this restaurant again... More

Excellent food. Good service and helpful wait staff. A cut above some of the other restaurants we visited. More vegetarian options would have made it even better!
