People, this chef is AWESOME! I had the most delicious lion fish burger here! Cooked to perfection, with perfect sauce as well. The hamburger I had was also extremely delicious. I don’t think I’ve ever had a better one anywhere else.

While coming back from a dive site in Bonaire, we happened upon a food truck that was located by dive site 37. It would have been worth the drive just to get that burger. Thick, juicy and big, it was better than I’ve had in...most restaurants anywhere. Mine was beef, but they also have lion fish (did not try). This was definitely a find, and a great way to spend my surface interval between dives.More

One of our favorites! Cactus Blue is conveniently located near the airport. This was our first stop after a long journey to Bonaire and then again to fuel up again for our flight home. We had the lion fish, a burger, and the beef wrap....Go on the earlier side if you want to try the lion fish as it does run out. Personally, I couldn’t get enough of the beef wrap! Lovely view, nice people, and fantastic food. Shouldn’t be missed!More

I was really excited to try this food truck based on reputation but was very disappointed by the salesman who was really pushy with food products. We wanted lion fish burgers and understand they are based on availability but they should advertise when the product...isn't available on the chalkboard display instead of using it as a lure tactic. People would walk up and ask for the lion fish burger and the man would push "a better option" sale on people. The man INSISTED I try a beef wrap when I really wanted a burger but I went with his advice because he was so pushy in saying I would be missing out if I didn't listen to him. He also was hard to sell homemade bottles of juices and some chocolate cake bite which was essentially a small fudge patty. My dive buddy and I were happy with the food but extremely disappointed with the sales tactics behind it. I really wanted a burger and could have cared less about the juice or chocolate bites. We felt taken advantage of after eating here which was disappointing because this place is so well known. The owner needs to get rid of the person who takes the orders and handles the payments. What a disappointing food experience. We couldn't stop thinking about it for our entire trip, we felt so taken advantage of.More

We stumbled upon them by chance, coming back from a dive at the Salt Pier! We saw the sign for lion fish burgers and since I never had them, decided to try them! We were in for a treat! We had the lion fish burgers...and the hamburger bacon wrap with cheese! What can I say, it was by far, I mean by far the best thing I ate on the island! I don’t mean to say that food is not good on the island! It’s just that their food is freaking unbelievable! The taste, both the fish and the beef cooked with sauces I have not tasted before, the flavors blending to perfection! I mean the whole experience was awesome! Also the fresh juice in beer bottles, was out of this world as well! I would give them 10 stars! Go diving and stop by to get some awesome food from Cactus Blue! Better than 10 star restaurants!More
