Constantly good!

We have been visiting this place on each trip since we came first to Bonaire about 15 years ago and it has always been very good. While there is a lot of change going on on the island, this is a reliable place for a great dinner. Not too fancy, but delicious food and good service - island style... read more

Mona Lisa is a must while visiting or living in Bonaire. The catch of the day is always a sure bet. Always fresh and prepared perfectly. Service is great. We go often and have never been disappointed.

We stumbled on this place by accident! The tuna sashimi was absolutely stellar! We also had smoked wahoo-- great! The next time we went, we had the tuna as appetizer and lobster stuffed red snapper. I don't know how to describe the taste, except for-- holy cow! It melted in my mouth with a burst of flavor that I can't... More

We own a vacation home on Bonaire, so we eat in lots of restaurants there. This great local spot, right downtown amid the shops, has a bar where, to quote Cheers, "everybody knows your name." Local folks stop in after work and it's lively. The restaurant has excellent food, and the servers are friendly, helpful and know the menu. Six... More

Service was excellent and easy. We had no reservation but they managed to find a table to us. We both took catch of the day, he got last barracuda and I got mahimahi. Sauce was delicious, really smooth. Cheesecake was good also, but fish was topnotch.

Our party of seven had good food and service. Consequently We ate there twice with no criticism from my less food conscious friends.We additionally were serenaded by the locals on the street for a little additional local flavor.

We walked around the center looking for a restaurant that looked appealing. We walked by Mona Lisa and saw their Specials for the evening "Fresh Tuna Sashimi with Wasabi" and thought "Yummmm". So we made our decision and went in. As it turned out - the Special was really an appetizer. With that new knowledge we decided we were not... More

We were fortunate enough to get an outside table on a warm night around 7:30 pm. I had a large cold beer while waiting for our dinner. We received a basket of warm bread with 2 spreads - garlic butter and a tomato based sauce. We both ordered the specials off the chalk board, with my wife having the seared... More
