Tasty!!

Bonito was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. The restaurant is not the easiest restaurant to find, but when you do, they offer Valet Parking. They service was great, as was the ambience, I wouldnt call thre food great, but it very good.

Great setting with a view over the harbour, great food and service. A little pricy with the drinks but worth it. Don't be in a hurry - dinner should not be hurried and its easy to spend 3 hours (of very well spent time)

The food was A+, The staff was slightly arrogant. Once we dropped 100 euro at the bar we were magically given a fantastic table with an excellent view (as opposed to where we were told we were going to be sitting). I caught the (male) bartender hitting on my fiancee twice (winking and making gestures) which I found somewhat irritating... More

The food at Bonito is lovely - especially the ceviche bar run by Roy (who is from Peru) You can't beat the location with great views over Gustavia - especially pretty at night The cocktail bar is great boasting the only mixologist on the island Definitely a place to visit in St Barths

I was thrilled to dine at Bonito considering all of the great reviews that I read and heard about from friends. Although Bonito has an amazing view of Gustavia and has a warm and inviting atmosphere, I was extremely disappointed by the food and service. Several tables around us waited over an hour for their food to arrive. One family... More

The food, service and atmosphere are not to be missed! The restaurant has a perfect view of Gustavia and the ocean, the food is perfectly seasoned, cooked and presented! I cannot wait to return!

The food was ok, but it took 45 minutes from when we finished our appetizers to get our entrees. They were nice, but the place was not very full, and they were very disorganized. However, I'd give it another chance.

Great terrace but hard to get a table on it. Our concierge of tale Toiny got it but at 9 pm only and we had to wait a little before the table was set. Staff is friendly but obviously very busy.

Reserved well in advance for or anniversary. Came here the day before and asked for a special table and flowers but when we arrived I did not only get a bad table but no flowers. No extra attention. Nothing. We ordered bellinis but got prosecco for 20€ a glass. What a joke. While we were still drinking and enjoying those... More

Food was excellent if maybe a bit salty. Bartender made us some very nice Negronis before dinner. The staff is very nice and service attentive & adept. Lovely dining room with a definite scene happening. Overall a great evening. Can't wait to go back!
