This place is beautiful with great views. It is expensive but the place is always packed and jamming. The food is good and the service is good to. I recommend this place

We have eaten at Bonito on previous visits to St. Barth's and always had a lovely experience. We got lost getting to the restaurant so arrived 20 minutes late for our reservation. Rather than understanding the host barked at us that "yes, you are very late and we have another reservation so you must be done in 90 minutes". We... More

Had dinner here with my husband and some friends. We had a great time. The food was delicious and the view was stunning. The only problem was the service was a bit slow and our wine glasses often sat empty until we could flag someone down. Overall it was a good dinner.

This was the best dining experience we had in St Barts, other than at our hotel (Taino), although we were generally disappointed in all food on the island. The food here was good quality and well prepared. The service was great and it is a very chic, relaxing setting.

Everything about Bonito is "Top Shelf !!" A wide array of fabulous selections and the best view of Gustavia Harbor. Service staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. We've been to most of the island's spots and Bonito tops them all.

Best of the best - great service and food, fantastic scene and great views. Wahoo Ceviche was over the top, as was bucatini. Loved it and will be back.

Can food be so delicious that it doesn't matter how bad the service is? Bonito might say yes. It was our most enjoyable food experience on St. Barts (truffle risotto, lobster risotto, wahoo ceviche appetizers, etc.) but was overshadowed by a general feeling of being rushed through dinner, pushed incessantly towards more expensive wines on the list, and generally bad...

We were on a cruise and made a dinner reservation here - a very popular place - and we got tired of shopping and decided to see if they could take us early - they were totally accommodating. They sat us where we asked. The food was wonderful - very interesting selection and it was all terrific. The service was... More

We went to Bonito a few weeks ago for dinner. The service was very friendly and attentive. I had the Mahi special with truffle and it did not disappoint. My husband had another fish dish with mango in it and he loved it. For dessert we had a warm apple tart which was outstanding. It was like nothing I have... More
