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.

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
