“Easy Late Night Dinners, Good Food Good Price!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We found this place to have reliably yummy food with a pretty good selection. Portions were generous and costs were low. Service was good to very good and you can’t beat the Oceanside location with tarpon in sight hunting for their dinner while you enjoy yours. We especially enjoyed their BBQ Chicken Pizza and the spinach mushroom appetizer (great fresh fried tortillas chips). The lava cake, and the burger was also very good and would order all of the above again. The staff here is very friendly and accommodating too, we were worried since we were not guests of the resort, but they always made us feel welcome.

“What's the hype?”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

We heard from many fellow-divers that Rum Runners is The place to have pizza on Bonaire. Well, we stopped there twice. Pizza is rather standard, nothing outstanding to report. The rest of the menu, or the Monday night buffet are also average. The service is below average and sl-o-o-ow. Te big reason to go there is to meet Captain Don and listen to Dee Scarr's Touch the See lecture on Monday night. Tat will make the pizza feel better.

“Had an enjoyable time!”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

My folks and I had a dinner here in May. I'd asked for a daiquiri from the bar, and they don't have them. That was my greatest disappointment. Very limited bar options. A frosty cool drink while eating and enjoying a sunset would have been perfect. I had wine instead. (whine).

They had a dish where they scrape along inside a partly hollowed and huge (nearly a foot high and I can't say how wide around) wheel of Parmesan. They pour minced truffle and pasta inside, and a kind of alcohol that briefly flames. It's a very pretty presentation and a good tasting dish. We enjoyed all our food there. It got very busy/packed after 7. We saw a good sunset too there.

Our resort was next door to this property, and pretty convenient to walk to (along the road, there's no oceanside access point). All in all, it was a lovely time, thank you.

“Great location”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Arriving our first night we took advantage of rum runners being so close to our resort we strolled up and fortunately got a table. The food was of good quality but it was a bit pricey for what it was. The location being directly on the water with night lighting was delightful to see the tarpon swimming so close to shore.
