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

And we liked it too. It's certainly not North Carolina or Texas barbecue but if you're expecting that kind of food in a place like Bonaire, I wouldn't understand that. The amount of food was tremendous. The food was tasty. The service was friendly and it reminded me of Bonaire in the old days. I hope they keep going for... More

Gravy on bbq chicken? Ugh! No thanks! Ribs were only fair! We will not be returning. It's sad when French fries are the best part of your meal!

This is a fairly small place and most of the seating that we saw was outside on a patio surrounded by plants. Weather was pleasant so sitting outside was nice with the stars overhead. Don't expect anything fancy but the food is plentiful and delicious. We had the special which had 3 types of meats all covered in a wonderful... More

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.
