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.

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
