Great food and drinks with very friendly service. The menu was very diverse, from classic French cuisine to burgers and beautifully prepared fresh local fish. There is a wonderful vegan ratatouille that I highly recommend to my fellow vegans who find it hard to dine out when on an island that primarily offers fish dishes! We dined at Bistro De... More

We waited for 1.5 hours for food. The food was not very nice. There were no condiments. The service was terrible. And at the end of the debacle were asked if we paid or not.

This is the second time we have eaten here. Food was great. Slow pace, but we expect this for an island. Onion soup was fantastic. Our main courses were great. Apple tarts seemed to be made a while before we got there, they were a bit rubbery. But overall excellent food. Felt it was quite odd that the server wanted... More

On the flight down to Bonaire from Houston, a passenger, who had been coming to Bonaire for 15 years recommend this Bistro. The chef, with a 2 star Michelin rating (he said), prepared great foods. Even the Dive Master, Wednesday night hamburger special was good. Service during July was good, people very friendly and again the food very good...we dined... More

Bistro De Paris is a perfect evening! The ambiance of the harbor makes it unique, very special. Breezes help cool when seated outside. The service was excellent. Just the right amount of attention, but not intrusive. Food was superb. The fresh fish was amazing! The lamb equally superb. Sauces did not overwhelm, but accented. The mini desserts were all great... More

The owner is charming and the food is very good. The setting is beautiful and the night we visited there was an excellent Jazz ensemble of superb musicians that stood up to any NYC Jazz club. Not what we expected in a restaurant in Bonaire. I had the Barracuda and it was very good, my daughter had the lamb special... More

Our son caught some Lion Fish today while SCUBA diving, and one of our fellow divers recommended we take them to Bistro De Paris to be prepared for dinner. We followed their advice, thinking we would probably need to order something else. We were very pleasantly surprised by the food, service, and ambiance. It's Tuesday, so it was Jazz night,... More

Hopefully we just went on a bad night, but if this is the norm, I would not go again. We were given our water when we first sat down, but no menus. We waited for several minutes and had to get a waitress to eventually bring them to us. Our food was OK once it did arrive. I ordered the... More

Wish we went earlier in our trip because we would have gone more often. Every bit as good as the other top restaurants in Bonaire, with ceviche made 3 ways- all fantastic, and then we had grilled fish with pumpkin risotto and spinach/asparagus- perfect plating and delicious. The desserts were great- we had a lemon mousse and tres leches- both... More

I am convinced this was the best meal and service for the price paid on our trip. We stopped in at lunch after a couple dives. We were going to eat at Eden cause we had some beach chairs. But the menu seemed so unappetizing (for lunch-Spice was not open). So we headed next door actually on an Eden staff... More
