Another mostly delicious dinner

We are fans of Mona Lisa and usually try to visit at least once per trip. We were pleased to be able to go on this occasion, as the restaurant had just opened again following closure for holiday. I chose the set menu of tuna sashimi, followed by filet mignon in cognac sauce (I told them to hold... read more

Mona Lisa is Bonaire's other great restaurant (Capriccio is the first), with superb Continental food. The meat are quite good (rare on Bonaire) and the side dishes, served family style, abundant and tasty. Though I do not recommend eating reef fish like barracuda for environmental reasons, their fish offerings are excellent. And be sure to eat the shrimp bisque, a... More

The very strange decor does not help the ambience nor the food. I cannot say the food was anymore than just okay and doable. The price is a little high compared to other local restaurants.

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

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

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
