“Excellent end of the year company dinner”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

With a group of 17 people, we were invited to have an end of the year company dinner.
The seating was good in the cosy courtyard (a bit separated from other guests in the restaurant), the suggested menu promising so we were all ready for a great night. We were not disappointed, not at all!
What a great variety of flavors, textures and surpring dishes. The Scroppino made of lemon ice, wodka and Ruccola lettuce (yes, your read this right) was amazing. The duck breast with fois gras was to die for. All dishes came with a selection of great wines. The crew could have been a little bit more generous (read: more alert or paying more attention to empty glasses). The chef/owner and his kitchen crew raised the bar and delivered a fabulous dinner experience

“upscale place with a cool little bar in the bak room”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

The food was very good. You can sit at the bar and watch the chef prepare your dinner or sit in the quaint little court yard in the back.
Nice atmosphere and the menu is OK. They could use a few more items to choose from, but the chefs special for the day- couple of various fish dishes was quite good.
Drinks are of fair price- level with the general town. Most good restaurants are in the 40-50$ range with drinks per person.

“Bonaire turning into a foodie island!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Spectacular food! From the great ambience, attentive staff, fantastic presentation and delicious scrumptious dishes. This is our third time visiting this island, and I think we may have just found the top restaurant in Bonaire! They have GREAT appetizers along with bringing you small tasty bite size dishes they just serve you for free samples. This place will certainly please any food snob.

The funny thing was they forgot to serve my dish with its side. I didn't say anything and chalked it up to maybe the waitress thought it came with it and it did not. Because my main course was so delicious I never said a word. Near the end of the evening the chef ( possible owner) came out and apologized. They realized the error. He offered us a fantastic dessert for free. Just a nice touch and was very appreciated. I am not one to complain but there was nothing you could even ever complain about dining here. I recommend this place for a nice evening out. You won't be upset! Thanks for the great meal and I know we will be back!

“A dream come true”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is probably the best restaurant in Bonaire. The food was impecable and so was the service. The MO for this place is an open menu that lets the chef be creative and use whatever seasonal ingredients are in the kitchen. I do Meatless Mondays and we ordered a 4 course appetizer that included 2 vegetarian dishes. Everything was mind blowingly delicious! This is a must for anyone who likes innovative high quality cuisine.
