I had the ribeye, my partner the Wahoo (local fish). The preperation of the fish and meat was good... More

Mona Lisa's is charming and clean and in spite of being old, was nicely maintained and pleasant. It is very warm this time of year and we should have made a reservation to sit outside. I'm told they are closed Saturday and Sunday so it was not surprisingly busy on a Friday night. There is no air conditioning, so the... More

My review covers from March 2015-September 2016. The owner (who catches his own fish) will serve you the most beautiful, thickest, and freshest cut of fish on the island....every time (tuna, mahi, wahoo). This is a warm, welcoming place, where people care to know your name. There's virtually no turn-over in the waitstaff, so you can tell they love their... More

Mona Lisa has been open for many years and during that time, the menu has never changed! That's not a bad thing, that just means that they got it right first time. There are daily specials as well as bar hapjes. Located on Kaya Grande, Bonaire's main shopping street, Mona Lisa has a welcoming and popular bar as well as... More

Only a few tables on their streetside patio but that's where you'll want to be as you'll benefit from the breeze. It can get warm inside even with the restaurant being mostly open to the street. Street noise is moderate. We were expecting an Italian restaurant but that isn't what this is. There were a lot of meat centric options... More

I had a fish platter and my partner had the schnitzel. I really enjoyed the local fish and the schnitzel was ok but my partner found it a little too pricy. Despite of that we had a really nice evening. The staff is very friendly. The restaurant is located in a street where you can admire all the local youngsters... More

While there is no ocean view, we sat on the sidewalk and enjoyed a fantastic meal with the quickest service of any restaurant on the island. We enjoyed the fresh barracuda catch and Italian dishes. Service was family friendly and warm. An excellent choice.

We were lucky enough to stop here for a cold drink while doing some shopping on a very hot afternoon. We sat at the bar with a local gentlemen who as we were leaving told us to make sure we came back for dinner. He continued to tell us Mona Lisa had the best food on the island. With this... More

Nice restaurant with plenty of seats in and outside. We had chicken sate wich is probably the best in the world. As a desert i had a Hans Coffee. Tell the waitress you saw it on tripadvisor. Overall a place i will return to more often.
