“Splendid sea side view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

The Wahoo (catch of the day) was tasty, a decent portion and well served. Our waiter was very attentive and kept refilling our glasses with chilled water.
The view over the sea was just great.. Super atmosphere.
Certainly a restaurant to visit.

“Secret worth sharing...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Staying next door to Captain Don's at Buddy Dive Resort for our Christmas holiday, we decided to visit the resort for a pizza dinner. We were seated at Rum Runners and had the bartender as our personal server. Although we were not guests, he offered us free welcome rum punches and catered to our small party. We had yummy pizza alongside great cocktails. Because of the proximity to the oceanfront, we took a post-dinner stroll on the dock to watch the night divers at play. What an enjoyable, lovely visit! We would definitely recommend others to stop by for great service and a relaxed atmosphere.

The duck was exceptional! Good portions, good variety of dishes and good atmosphere. Made an effort to control mosquitoes.

“Best Sunsets On Bonaire”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Rum Runners is situated directly on the cliff facing southwest for wonderful sunsets. The whole feel is very "islandy" and tropical. The bar is also right on the water and fun to sit and chat or watch the bay. Food and service were always better than average to very good. We were here 4 times on a 2 week stay on the island.

“Perfect locale and solidly good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

We recently spent ten days at Captain Don's Habitat and had three dinners at the Rum Runners restaurant. We were a group of five adults and ordered the catch of the day at each sitting along with regular menu items, ranging from great cheese burgers to the vegetarian salads. Everything was hot or cold as it should have been, tasty and nicely presented. Service was polite as well as fun with the staff interacting and joking with us. One very busy night without reservations, the manager set up an extra table to accommodate our group. The view from the restaurant is the best on the island and the food was consistently good, breakfast being the exception. Pizzas from the wood fired oven are perfect for take-out or dining on the terrace. Drinks are good and prices fair. It is one of our favorite places on Bonaire.
