Very good BBQ

Quiet local atmosphere & good food were highly by previous divers, so had to try it out. Staff did a great job accommodating our large group.

Good food, great service and very reasonable prices. Loved coleslaw and best French fries ever. Steak was tender. Could have used steak sauce though.

BobbeJan's is only open on the weekend and is very busy. We ate outside on the patio and after dark there are twinkling lights and it is a very festive little place filled with locals. I had chicken satay with peanut sauce and my husband had delicious pork chops. We had a very nice time. Wait staff attentive. If we... More

Last night on the island and followed a group that have been here often. Portions were huge and very tasty. My wife ordered the fish - also very good. Would definitely come back.

Food was above average for BBQ but service lacks. Had better ribs at Joe's Grillhouse. Nice atmosphere and probably would go back..

Don't expect something fancy, it's just good food, nothing special, ribs do have nice taste but don't fall of the bone, sate skewers are little, fries and coleslaw are perfect. Service is ok.

My first night in Bonaire I decided to go take a walk and look for a place to eat. On the main road going into town I smelled a wonderful BBQ aroma and I couldnt resist. I went into Bobbejans and immediately had a good feeling. It kinda felt like a

We have liked this place in the past, but were disappointed this year. Our food was a little overcooked and not very tasty, relying mostly on a cloyingly sweet bar-b-q sauce.

They are doing something right, that's for sure: we were going there everyday when they are open! Just can't have enough of Bobbejan's ribs. Takeaway and sitting on the sea front is the best idea for dinner. Enjoy folks!

Good food, not great. But good for a casual, not elaborate dinner. Service and price are good. Ribs are tasty. Fish is fresh and simple. Both recommended.
