Excellent food, great service, very nice décor! And you can’t beat the view! A little pricey but not too bad. Will definitely go back next time we’re in Bonaire.

Food and service were excellent. The night we were there they only had Barracuda. They were out of Tuna and all other fish. So, for a place that should have been raining fish.....it actually wasn't! The service was awesome! We had a really fun night...More

We went for dinner and decided to do the Chef’s Specials, 4 course. There were two choices and we each got one and shared. The food was all delicious! Waitstaff was very nice and attentive.

I've never been there at Christmastimes But the restaurant closes on Sundays, and my guess is they would do so on 12/25. If you were planning on a nice dinner out on Christmas Sunday, I'd suggest sending some... More

It Rains Fishes is a modern restaurant with a beautiful view over the Caribbean Sea and ideally located on the boulevard in the center of Kralendijk. Since October 2017 owners Huub de Groot and Shaina Offerman have completely renovated the restaurant, with a new kitchen, stylish decor and renewed menu. It Rains Fishes actually consists of three parts, the restaurant section, the Chef’s Table and a lounge setting where you can enjoy the view while enjoying a drink, wine or tropical cocktail. Fresh fish Fishing is still a big part of Bonairian culture. There are a few fishing boats in front of It Rains Fishes that depart almost daily in the early morning to go fishing. The catch for the restaurant is cleaned immediately after returning. Depending on the daily catch, many of these fish can be found on the menu. Apart from locally caught fish, fresh fish is also flown in from countries such as the Netherlands, America and Canada.
