Wow lovely place, immaculate and fantastic service. Mozzarella and tomato salad so fresh and delicious. Burger homemade and very tasty. Shrimp madness was full of flavor and lovely Pino Grigio to wash it down. Fab place!!

Our resort recommended and made reservations for our visit. My husband had the fish stew and enjoyed the flavors. The portion size was smaller than he expected. I had the tempura shrimp- 4 nice sized shrimp that we over battered and soggy- absolutely no crunch, plated with an anemic slice of tomato and wasabi sauce. The side of a baked... More

Unimpressed is the word that comes to mind. Blackened fish sandwich lacked any real seasoning. Plating for the catch of the day was not done well. Or should I say for the order. If you get rice it comes in a separate stainless cup. Why not plate it with the fish?. Also had a chutney sauce with diced vegetable pieces.,... More

The food was good. It has very high reviews. We just thought the food at "Ingridients" at our resort Buddy Dive was much better. Nice setting downtown over looking the water on Boulevard.

I have been visiting Bonaire for over a decade. It rains fishes has been one of our favorites over the years. This trip it was first on our list. Since our last visit a few years back, the menu has changed. I found it very limited. I had the wahoo with butter and lemon. Portion was small and very dry.... More

The location is perfect to view a beautiful sunset. Close to the water. They were out of a couple of the choices we were looking forward to that night. I had the scallops which were awesome. The portions were small and it was more expensive than some of the other area restaurants for what you got. A few people in... More

View and location are the best for downtown Kralendijk. Food is nice but quite pricey. Catch of the day was a nice piece of Barracuda but was overcooked. Starter I had the local prawns but 16USD for 5 prawns is too much for this place. Lunchdeals are very good however.

Seemed like the portions were small compared to the price. Very good food though. Nice view of the harbor while eating.

The food and the atmosphere are incredible! The catch of the day was Barracuda and Red Snapper, delicious! We ate here between Christmas and New Years so we got to hear and watch some fireworks. This is a very popular place, so make reservations!
