Good choice for dinner

Saturday night and high season so we were happy to get a reservation at this popular restaurant. Food was good. Prices high ( 22 euros for one drink!). Nice views and great atmosphere.

Now don't get me wrong. I'll pay big money for a 'great view, great food and expensive prices." As example Tuesday lunch at Le Gaiac at Toiny is worth every penny north of $350 for lunch, wine etc. But Bonito fails for the following reasons. The service is haphazard. The food, though attractively presented lacks culinary expertise. And the prices... More

We had our wedding reception here two years ago - 118 people fit great in the space-amazing and excellent service. Nicolas the manager did a great job w all the details. The food was fantastic and the drinks were superb. It's just lovely all around:)

For the third year in a row when we've come to St Bart's for the winter we've found Bonito to be the place we go to when we want the best. The cerviche, or roast pig, aree served in a glittering setting with the view of Gustavia spead out below. The service is usually s good as the view. If... More

Well, as everybody already knows, this is a great location over Gustavia harbour, with maybe the best view, great design of the restaurant, the bar and the chill out space. But the service is not up to it. Up and down but never to the normal level. Good food, a lot of ceviches, nice meat. Now the best in this... More

Attitude from a receptionist that was so snotty that it could freeze the entrails off a rabbit..... I almost cancelled my dinner booking here after reading below about alleged poor service as we really were not that hungry. However, a superb general manager at another restaurant we enjoy, so recommended this restaurant that he insisted on calling them up to... More

Great ceviches, almost better to make a meal out of starters and just enjoy the atmosphere overlooking the harbor. Very good though pricey wine list.

Bonita is located on a hill overlooking Gustavia Harbor. There is a wonderful breeze and the atmosphere is inviting and lovely. The food is excellent and it was hard to choose what to dine on. The service was equal and it is a lovely place to wind down from the day and just enjoy the sun setting in Gustavia.

The ambiance is great. Service and food are very good. Best to go during day-light, but night is beautiful too.

Just left Bonito. 6 for dinner. Ambience is a 10. Food a 7-8 but pricey. Not crazy for St. Barts. Our issue was the service. Had a reservation for 7:30p. Restuarant was maybe 1/4 full. It was as if we were not there. Got forgotten. Our guess is we got treated as Americans. Then they asked if we were giving... More
