Bonito was recommended to us from all of our friends who have been to St Barths. While the view of Gustavia is indeed pretty and the restaurant more than accommodated our last minute request of sitting somewhere near the view, I found it adequate instead of amazing. Pros: the speciality drinks are as amazing and tasty and super fun to... More

I hate starting restaurant reviews mentioning the room and not the food, but that's kind of what you remember here...great room, great views...that and the sight of the steamed scallop presentation. Food was good, not great...service was the same and you're paying top dollar so you would hope for more. Go for the view, and accept the food for what... More

Wow. The food was fantastic; one of the two best meal we had on the island. Drinks were also great, the rhum (rum) old fashion they had was a great change of pace from the typical whiskey old fashion. We won't be back to Gustavia without visiting Bonito. Get a reservation! We visited in low season and when we called... More

You have to visit this restaurant!!! The food was great , the view is the best in St Barths at night from a restaurant. The staff is auper friendly. They have a small living room where you can smoke , or have a fre drinks after dinner. Besides, the place is gorgeous!!!!

Bonito overlooks Gustavia and has huge views with warm breezes. The staff is extremely welcoming they have always been professional, happy, and accommodating. Plan to go wearing a cocktail dress, St. Barth's cool casual, but no jacket is needed (though some wear one). Food is beyond amazing I have no idea how the island gets such high quality ingredients but... More

This place is another of my favorites on the isalnd. It is not cheap like most restaurants on theisland are not inexpensive. The setting is very beautiful but also fun. They play music but serve great food. Most people recommend this place. I am sure therer are many reviews.

I really cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. Every detail imaginable has been thought out and planned. Bonito sits along a steeper road but there is valet. The service from the moment you sit down till you leave is efficient but not rushed. The servers will make recommendations and if you happen to get up to visit the... More

Bonito is another fabulous restaurant in St. Barth. My husband and I loved the atmosphere and the food is spectacular. Gorgeous views, especially as the sun goes down. Another restaurant we would definitely go to again!!
