We visited twice in our fortnight on Bonaire, saving our second visit for the last night of our holiday. As you may expect, we ate fish both times, although they do serve meat and vegetarian dishes too. Between the two visits, we had Wahu, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda and the warm mixed fish starter to share. All of this was delicious... More

Very nice colonial setting near the harbour. Old building with special led lights behind the bar, this gives a special atmosphere. You must come here for the fresh fish, so take any fish from the menu and you are fine. The setting, food and service are alle very good and this makes the moderate prices even more interesting.

We started with the Red Pepper soup and each had the wahoo and dorado. Both fish served with the lemon butter. Very fresh and well prepared and paired well with the French Rose we selected. Great setting and views.

I'm not gonna lie, we had such a wonderful first dinner here that we went back the next night to have dinner again. The meals were delicious and I strongly recommende the pepper soup and anything that's made with fish. The staff is courteous and attentive and you can't beat the view.

I would recommend this dining experience. Most of the fine dining on Bonaire is reasonable priced. It Rains Fishes is no exception. Good food resonable priced. I would recommend a reservation.

Make sure to order an appetizer first or you may be hungry after your dinner. :( Portions are on the small side but the food is very good. Went with a large group and were well taken care of. Make reservations and give yourself time to find a parking spot before hand.
