For $10 you get a huge plate of food. Place is packed and from what I understand often a line up. They are not open everyday so make sure you check hours of operation before you go. The ribs were so good done to perfection. Lots of people doing take-a-way. There is a sit down area too.

Sampler (chicken sate, ribs, chicken pieces) and rib dinner both with fries (actually only needed one with fries - they gave... More

Great, finger-licking, sweet - just a few words to describe their ribs. As a long time grill-master and lover of all things BBQ, I can say that these folks know how to do it. Enjoy them with their homemade fruit punch (which would also have been great with some rum I suspect)...

We were in Bonaire this summer and surprisingly on the one night I didn't fancy cooking it was suggested that we have a take-out from Bobbejans - which is what I hoped we would do. The first time I had a Bobbejans was 4 years ago and I can still take the great flavours.. So this time we ordered a... More

This is my first time in Bonaire, but the friends I'm with have been here several times and this place was highly recommended by all of them!! We ate there our first night here last week and it was delicious!! For the celebration of my scuba certification we will be going again this evening!! This is an authentic must try!!!

This place was right next door to our apartment so we ate here several times although they were only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Terrific ribs and slaw!

Food is good - ambience is OK - a restaurant frequented by people in our dive group. We go there once each visit, and it's a decent meal.

On a side street off the main town center, this place is a great spot for take-away. It's only open on weekend evenings and only for a few hours, but the food is delicious and worth plugging it into a dining schedule. I've never had a bad or under cooked piece of anything there, and the sumptuous flavors are known... More

Bobbejan is one of my favorite restaurants onze Bonaire. The number of items on their menu is small. But the dishes they have on the Menu are very good. I only go there for the ribs. These ribs, in my opinion are the best of the Island. It is possible to take out but Ik always prefer to sit in... More
