“Excellent surpise diner”

We had a lovely diner tonight @ Appetite thanks for tonight's Chefs Harry & Vincent. A part of the desert had a surprising twist. Must be the chefs secret. We'll be back.

“Great place and ambiance but a bit overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

On the streetside you can not see the nice patio at the back. There it is great dining al fresco. A nice starter, good fish and a small but varied wine list from which you can order all by the glass. Nice staff so really nothing to complain about. But still: it lacks a 'wow' factor and is somewhat overpriced. But that is a general problem on bonaire.

“Best food on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

I am on vacation with my girlfriend for ten days and after being six days already on the island, we discovered for sure the best restaurant on Bonaire. Even though we still got four days left, I am sure no restaurant will be able to top this one.
We had a 4-course chef's selection, and we were really amazed by the quality and the presentation. The chef really knows how to combine different kind of tastes in a way I almost have never experienced before. Wether you like fish or meat, both you can really enjoy at this place.
My girlfriend and me are not vegetarian and I can not really judge this side of the restaurant, but I did see what one of our neighbors got and that plate also really looked delicious.
The service is good and very friendly and even though it was quite busy everything arrived in time and we got enough attention from our waitress. She had answers to all our questions and the wine we had was just delicious.
So if you are on Bonaire and you are searching for a relaxed atmosphere with really delicious food and a good service, you gotta visit Appetite Bonaire.

“Once upon a time this was a good restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

When we last visited Bonaire in 2011 this was, possibly, the best restaurant on the island. Dinner there this evening was a disaster. After being seated we ordered the 4-course chef's selection and a bottle of wine. The first course was served after about 30 minutes but there was no sign of the wine. We had finished the first course before we could attract the attention of the waitress and ask about the wine. She had forgotten and ten minutes later it was served. An hour and a half after arriving the second course was served. These two courses were something of "a curate;s egg" - good in parts, but with no real cohesion. Two hours after arriving and with no sign of the third course we asked for the bill, explaining that the service was terrible. We were presented with a bill for the full amount of the meal. We told the waitress that this was unacceptable and we would only pay for what we had eaten. She came back a couple of minutes later and said that we need only pay for the wine. Her explanation was that one of the chefs was ill and this had caused problems in the kitchen. We told her that was OK but that it would have made sense to explain this upon arrival so that we could choose whether to stay or accept the long delays in service. We had enjoyed meals here in 2011 but after this evening we will not return.

“special meal on bonaire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

So far this has been our best meal on Bonaire by far. The food was imaginative, delicious and fun. We are seasoned travelers who have very high standards. The regular chef was off and the sous chef was in charge. He really delivered for us. The service was great, the atmosphere sophisticated, all in all we were pleasantly surprised. Appetite would be a great restaurant in any city or country.
