“Yummy pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

After a long flight from the Netherlands to Bonaire we decided to have a simple pizza and some salade. The pizza at Rumrunners are prepared in a real Italian pizza oven and because of this one of the best we had since a long time, just fresh, not too thick and with fresh ingredients.
The staff was very helpfull and fast with the order.
Downside of Rumrunners is that they a re a bit too pricy.
Pro is the waterfront setting.

“Driest burgers ever”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

Met friends here for lunch in between dives. Service was fine but all 4 burgers were very overcooked, rolls were dry and when one was returned because it had onions (after a specific request for no onions) they were only scraped off, leaving the taste behind. Water glasses were never refilled.

“Nice view, that's about it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

This restaurant offers a beautiful view of the ocean, but we thought it was overpriced and the bartender was not friendly at all.

“OK for Pizza, stay away from the bar and anything else.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2011

Great location, once you managed to attract service personal and you order a pizza the place is ok. Anything else (catch of the day or steak) is boiled to death, although we had instructed the waiter to get the fish/steak medium rare, the ordered pineapple/chilli sauce never made it to our table, and we had to sit next to a stinking oil lamp (so had other customers as well).
Getting the check took ages.
But the "highlight" is certainly the bar service, snails would be faster and more responsive and more friendly as well. Paying for drinks is even more difficult, bartenders simply ignore customers. With other words, go somewhere else (Buddy's, Carel's bar)
