“The best burgers on Bonaire for sure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

At the kiteboarding beach you can get the best burgers of the island. Fresh meat and other ingredients, you can get a drink and sit on the terrace and watch the kiteboarders. Good food for a good price! We are definitely returning.

“Best burgers in Bonaire!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

It was sad that Cactus Blue restaurant closed as it was one of our favourite restaurants on the island however the innovative Hagen opened a burger bar on the beach :-) Hurrah! The burgers are just so delicious and freshly made while you wait. Hagen puts his special mix of spices and sauce on the burger and hey presto - you will feel left wanting more. It's also worth trying the lion fish burgers. They too are tasty and the texture and flavour of the fish is very delicate. Don't bother having burgers anywhere else!

“Great, cheap eats!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I stopped by to see if they had the Lionfish burger when passing through one day and chatted with the owner for a little bit. Really nice guy and also gave some advice on some nearby nice dive sites to check out. He did not have any Lionfish but I had the chicken burger and my wife had the kite burger. Both were delicious and prepared fresh right as you order. It's probably one of the cheapest burgers you can find on the island but it is definitely the best I had all week. Stop by and grab some good food and watch the kite surfers for lunch.

“Hagen has a neat spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The Lionfish burgers are really good. You can get you a sandwich while on a surface interval. Not too pricey.

“Good burger's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Its nice to have somewhere to go and find food whilst being so far south. This excellent little burger/beer/drinks van caters to the resident kite surfers and passing divers. We really like the food, it was tasty and good value and the proprietor was charming, engaging and entertaining. Definately worth going to for lunch when you are in the area!
