“Location...Location...Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

The same beef, prepaerd as well, is half the price. But Sebastian (the old Richards) has the location...directly ON the water...not across the street from the water or in town. And for that location, they can charge more...and do. Excellent place for special occasions and the food was lovely

“Excellent location and food”

We had a wonderful romantic evening with food prepared by a chef who just loves his work. Just remember you bug spray and relax with the sunset views.

“Wow - experience was so good, we went again!”

An intimate setting for two or 14 (our group). Appetizer of goat cheese with sliced pears was a delight. Main course of pan seared Wahoo over glazed carrots was superb. The chef leaves the kitchen door open and welcomes visitors. Loved it.

“Sebastian's Offers First-Rate Dining on Bonaire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

I had the opportunity to enjoy another great dinner at Sebastian's, located in the prior premises of Richard's Restaurant, on Bonaire.

First of all, the location is excellent. The restaurant has been totally remodeled, and it is beautiful in shades of cream and white with subdued lighting. One can enjoy the great bar, cozy nooks, or dining under the roof, on the deck, or--for very private and romantic dining--on the pier.

All my meals here have been excellent. Sebastian's menu is constantly changing, because he uses only what is fresh or in season. In my opinion, he is a master at combining tastes and textures that one might not normally see; one of my favorite appetizers served is the warm local goat cheese, served over thin pear slices and baby spinach, with a balsamic vinegar reduction.

I had two friends visiting the island, and they wanted to check out Sebastian's, so off we went. All three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I had a pasta in an olive oil and herb dressing with octopus, while one friend enjoyed a pasta with gorgonzola sauce, and another chose a second appetizer (beef carpaccio) for her main course. The portions were so ample, that one took half of her entrée home, and all three of us were too full to order dessert.

However, I have enjoyed dessert before at Sebastian's. My favorites are his home-made tiramisu and his Belgian chocolate mousse. I have also had spoons of his crème brulee as well as the fresh mango-vanilla parfait. What I like about Sebastian's desserts is they are all very light, which after a meal makes it the perfect ending.

All in all, I can easily recommend Sebastian's for those who want ambiance and fine dining on Bonaire. And I found pricing to be normal for similar restaurants on Bonaire.

“Such a beautiful view for dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

What used to be Richard's is now Sebastians. We were so happy it re-opened as it is one of the best views on the island for outdoor dining. They let us bring our 2 dogs and eat out at the gazebo over the water. It was fantastic. This was our last night in Bonaire after 3 weeks and a perfect ending to a perfect trip!
