“Such a beautiful view for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

What used to be Richard's is now Sebastians. We were so happy it re-opened as it is one of the best views on the island for outdoor dining. They let us bring our 2 dogs and eat out at the gazebo over the water. It was fantastic. This was our last night in Bonaire after 3 weeks and a perfect ending to a perfect trip!

“expensive and small portions”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

I went to try it out to see what the old Richard restaurant turned into. Friendly service, waitress goes out of her way to make sure everything is alright. Food was not tasty, portions were way too small. We left hungrier then when we arrived and not to mention expensive!

“"Excellent waterfront spot, but food can be more exquisite".”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

We had dinner at Sebastian's as two couples. The spot is great, direct at the Waterfront, no traffic in between, the service is informal, but to the point, but the food could be better for the pretention and the price. Too salt, too little and not surprising. The wine is good but pricy.
For a direct Waterfront location: excellent, for the food more has to be done.

“Looks can deceive, eat elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Unfortunately this beautyfull restaurant is only that. The price makes you expect a whole lot more than you get. I would recommend to have a drink and enjoy the view but to eat elsewhere, for example atsea, itrainsfishes or wills grill.

“Excellent food and service at a beautiful relaxing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

A lot of restaurants on Bonaire suffer from the fact that when sitting outside you might be disturbed by noisy traffic, especially scooters and motorcycles. Not so at Sebastian's. You sit on the waterfront far away from the street. You can enjoy the sunset in a very relaxing atmosphere. We really missed this place when Richard's closed. Now it is back with excellent food and a really nice attentive service.
