We always spotted a full crowd at this restaurant and decided to check it out. A cute older couple dining on the balcony convinced us this was a place to visit - "we come here every time we're on Bonaire - for the past thirty years!" And now it will be a big part of our future visits to Bonaire... More

This is a small restaurant with a good local menu, and a small, but tasty menu. One tip, The tables closer to the street can be more comfortable, as the whole thing is open, and there is no air conditioning. We liked it so much, we came back again on our two week stay on Bonaire.

The food was average (especially for the price) - my husband and I each had a steak. The sauce was good and the au gratin potatoes were ok. The service was fair - she was pleasant, but our water glasses were always empty, and we were not informed until we went to pay that the credit card machine was not... More

This is always one of our top two when visiting Bonaire. The service is excellent, friendly, attentive, timely. The owner/chef is welcoming and gives attention to preparation. I always get the vienerschnitzel which paired with mushroom sauce and fries is the best truly I have ever had! Lamb was excellent, starters large and very tasty. Wine selection good and priced...

We loved the quaint European ambiance of this place and the interesting menu selections (like Wahoo carpaccio!) It was expensive but we ate at our condo most of the time and it was our big night out! I stuck with seafood but they also have steaks - our 13 year old son had the weiner schnitzel and said it was... More

We went to Mona Lisa Friday night and had a wonderful meal. One of the special entrees was tuna steak. I'm really glad I ordered it. The tuna was cooked perfectly (rare), so tender I could cut it wit my fork or regular knife and delicious. The soy ginger sauce was a nice complement. And the friendly service was excellent.

Although undoutably a good restaurant I feel that located on a street with traffic there is nothing attractive about this restaurant. We sat down and took a look at the menu. Now they have now star no special quality certificate so we were quite naturally shocked at the prices! We are used to 5-star hotels and corresponding prices but Mona... More

We saved our last night Friday for Mona Lisa one of our favorite restaurants in Kralendijk, Bonaire. We have had great luck there with food and drinks and love that they are welcoming and have great food. My wife had the fish of the day, snapper and I had the shrimp dinner. Food was great and service was very personal.... More

This is a great place to eat. You can either choose to have a "barhap" (which is a daily changing meal for a good price) or choose a-la-carte. The menu has been like it is for a long time and that's what I like about Mona Lisa. You'll know you'll get a very delicious meal, the quality is always the... More

Although a challenge sometimes to reserve a table, the effort is well worth it when you enjoy the carefully prepared, well-presented and delectable food. The wait staff is experienced and attentive. The offerings choice, seasoned with a deft hand, clearly the product of patience, practice and classical culinary training. This is send-you-plate-back squeaky-clean-because-you-can't-believe-how-good-it-tastes food not to be hurried. I hesitate... More
