“Love this Place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Great food, nice decor. The owners are always there and are really friendly. Sometimes she even waits on our table. Love the preseco... One of my favorites in bonaire, can't wait to go in March.

“Great food, voracious insects”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

The food was fantastic, but all five of us were eaten alive by flying insects... 10 to 15 bites each that left red welts that we still have five days later. Not sure why it was such a problem... we ate at It Rains Fishes which is just down the beach from At Sea the prior day at the same time and didn't have any problem.

“Great but is it #1?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Everything here is 5 star, but make sure you hit Appetite too. To me they are a tie. They are slightly different, which is good, but both great. Compare the chocolate sampler desserts to see what i mean.
The only drawback i can see is having an outdoor table on the edge during rainy season. LOL
I made my reservation the same day but i'm a solo traveler and everyone on the island knows each other so when i said the competition sent me over that may have helped.

“Excellent in many ways, but . . .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

We heard many great things about this restaurant, so maybe our expectations were too high. Reservations are a must. They offer daily seafood specials – three choices the night we were there, and we had been eating each of those are other fine restaurants all week. Other than the specials, the selections were much more limited than we expected. Cuisine was a bit too “French” for us with a complimentary liver patet, veal cheeks, and other items that just didn’t “do it” for us. Service was good, but not great. Still a fine restaurant – perhaps we would have been more impressed if we had tried one of their specials earlier during our stay.

“Give your tastebuds a real treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Without repeating what almost everybody else has already posted here, let me just say that this place is a cut above the rest in Kralendijk and that a Michelin star (for some dishes even two of them) would be well deserved. While being somewhat more expensive than most other foodie places in Bonaire, the prices are by no means stratospheric. Without being extremely extensive, the wine list has a few more selections than other restaurants on the island. We went there on two occasions and were more than happy with everything. As bookings were already essential a day ahead during our stay at the beginning of the season, I suggest that, during peak season, you reserve a table well ahead.
