Casual Dining Bonaire - Dining Bonaire FYI

According to Wikipedia “A casual dining restaurant is a restaurant that serves moderately-priced food in a casual atmosphere. Except for buffet-style restaurants, casual dining restaurants typically provide table service.”

Without a doubt most restaurants on this website are categorised as casual dining. Of course not without a reason. Bonaire and casual dining are a great mix. The island itself is very casual with a relaxed, Caribbean, unhurried, and friendly atmosphere. People love to go out for breakfast, lunch or dinner and experience the same.

The Hillside Restaurant and Apartments are a quiet gem on Bonaire.Some friends told us about the weekly specials at the Hillside Restaurant on Bonaire. Although we have been visiting Bonaire frequently for a couple of years and living here full time for four months, we had not visited the Hillside Restaurant.We went for the "curry shrimp" special on Thursday night. The food was very good and the price was reasonable. There are other weekly specials, we're told, like Tuna Tuesdays.The restaurant and the apartments (which are rented daily/weekly to people visiting bonaire) is located in an area of Bonaire called "Laguna Hills". The restaurant and bar is located in front of the apartments. The bar overlooks the pool and a spectacular view over the West coast of Bonaire.

Great food and good service. The meat was very tasty and was brought out raw thinly sliced along with a cast iron grill pan. The side of rice and tomato salsa were also very tasty. There was loud live music which made it hard to talk to others at the table but I know that’s how it always is so I’m not docking any stars for that. I didn’t try the pizza but I it looked like there were some incredibly creative options. Don’t expect any Italian style pizza though.

It was good. But way overpriced. Brazilian meat combo was decent, juicy, fun to make at your table on hot grill. Disappointed the lionfish and shrimp pizza, the size of a dinner plate, was $38. It really is WAY over priced when lionfish is local and pizza is small for one person. Pizza place just down the street has lionfish pizza for more reasonable price.

When you dine here, you feel like family! The owners allowed us a peek through the kitchen to see how their one of a kind pizza is cooked. It was wonderful! Then, we feasted on perfectly marinated beef cooked on a grill at our table. Divine!

Bistro de Paris is located next to the Harbor Village Marina, with an attractive view of the boats. We often go to Bistro De Paris for their Wednesday "burger night". They have great burgers for a very reasonable price. The owner is very involved with the restaurant and works to make sure his customers have a great time.

Sebastian’s Restaurant

01:03 06 Jul 18
Just had a fantastic evening here with my wife. The views are wonderful with the waves crashing on the rocks just below the tables. A school of fish was periodically jumping and skimming across the water to escape some unseen predator. The food and drinks were excellent, as was the service. It may be a bit pricey for bonaire but for about 100 dollars we ate an ap, two main dishes and desert as well as 4 drinks and a bottle of water. That is pretty cheap for the quality of food and atmosphere.

My wife and I first visited Sebastian's during Bonaire's "Restaurant Week". The location is gorgeous. The restaurant deck is built out over the reef and we were able to watch the sun go down. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We have since returned to Sebastian's and each time was very enjoyable.

To me, the name Joe's Grillhouse suggested a place that served ribs and other grilled meats. In fact, Joe's is much more. They have excellent fish, tuna sashimi and other dishes are served at "fine dining" restaurants with fancier names.I had both the sashimi and the baby back pork ribs, which were prepared in the "dry rub" style. Two of my fellow diners had the fish of the day, which was fantastic and another one had the steak. My friend pronounced Joe's steak as one of the best steak he had ever eaten.Joe's great food is complemented by a large selection of craft beers, many from the Netherlands. I can unreservedly recommend that you "Eat at Joe's". You'll have a great time.

Some of the best food on the island in an upscale setting. Wasn't thrilled that when paying the check we noticed we were charged $5.00 for the extra bread that we ordered at the table. Two small loafs of bread for 6 people doesn't go very far and another loaf or two should be happily provided complimentary to large groups. At a minimum the extra charge should be disclosed when the bread was ordered to prevent surprises. Otherwise, this review would have been 5 stars.

If you value local sustainable food and local fis to....it is not in this restaurant for you....it is all frozen and shipped in. Therefore my 3 star rating. Also watch out for food allergies. Salad listed said hazelnuts but it came with Walnuts .....a death sentence for my husband without medical help

Expensive, meager portions and so so quality. Got the v catch of the day, tuna. Served sliced to hide the small amount of fish, a few veggies came with it, but no dric or starch of any kind. Tuna tasted old. Cost $30. Others in our party were similarly unimpressed.Breakfast here is will done, although resort priced, which moved it from 2 to 3 stars for me.

Rum Runners is the restaurant at Captain Don's Habitat Resource. The restaurant is located on a large concrete patio that is right above the ocean. My wife says that she thinks that they have the best hamburgers on the Island. They have a variety of other dishes, ranging from pizza to fajitas. The prices are reasonable and the service is friendly. This is a great place to go when you're in the mood for a good, simple, reasonably priced meal.

Pizza is stone cooked and thin. It was hard and overcooked twice. Moderately high in cost without added value. Restaurant separate from resort so you have to have separate credit card imprint, mc or visa to have account there. Can pay final bill with am ex. Many places on island not taking AMX.

This was our favorite place in bonaire by far! The food was amazing. The owner is really friendly and know how to pair beers well. The head chef was great as well! He personalized the meals to our dietary requests and even let us try some things off the menu. All the food was amazing. It was the type of place that I usually would have stuck with one thing because I liked it so much, but knew that no matter what I got, it was going to be good. We took home a great red wine (uno) from him for a great price and they even gave us a bottle opener to go with it because we didn’t have one. If you go to Bonaire, this is a must.

The Hillside Restaurant and Apartments are a quiet gem on Bonaire.Some friends told us about the weekly specials at the Hillside Restaurant on Bonaire. Although we have been visiting Bonaire frequently for a couple of years and living here full time for four months, we had not visited the Hillside Restaurant.We went for the "curry shrimp" special on Thursday night. The food was very good and the price was reasonable. There are other weekly specials, we're told, like Tuna Tuesdays.The restaurant and the apartments (which are rented daily/weekly to people visiting bonaire) is located in an area of Bonaire called "Laguna Hills". The restaurant and bar is located in front of the apartments. The bar overlooks the pool and a spectacular view over the West coast of Bonaire.

Food was good. I had the guinea foul. The sauce was good and the cut was tender. Portion sizes lacked. The foul comes with a small portion veggies but that's it. Be you definitely needed a side. Wasn't really sure about the size differences between the small sharing portion and the larger portion for the veggy ceviche and salads. You do get a great beef tar tar that was delicious as part of all the meals . Overall, it was good. Their fish options were okay but lacked a local feel especially for a place called it rains fishes. Wish they would have more sustainable fish options as well as lion fish.

It Rains Fishes came highly recommended from several people that have been going to Bonaire for a long time. The restaurant sits overlooking the water in an open air, newly renovated building. Beautiful view! The food, mostly fresh sea food, was fantastic! This restaurant lives up to its billing!

Nice food, cosy atmosphere and a great2 view to the sea which is next door... Staff is friendly. The choice of fish was however a little disappointing on that day (only tuna).

This was a great meal. Very small portions and pricey, but great food, perfect service, and a very upscale atmosphere. A good place for a fancy dinner.

Nice place, friendly personal, some good dishes like the sashimi from fresh tuna. Fish salad is on the small side, you could say little overpriced.

The service was outstanding. The waitress was so lively and hilarious but sadly the fish of the day was plainly cooked and the rest of the meal although good was not great. However, the filet mignon was wonderful and the restaurant gave us an appetizer on the house of salmon mousse (I thought was delicious but the other members of my party had different views). Overall, happy I ate here and would recommend to a friend 🙂

We enjoyed multiple lunches and a dinner here during our stay on the island. I would reccommend making reservations ahead of time if you are able. If not, the staff is friendly and you can sit at the bar sipping on delicious mojitos until a table opens up.The lobster risotto was out of this world and the seafood pasta was outstanding. Even the mini hamburgers were delicious if that's what you're in the mood for.If you're of legal drinking age and looking for an adult beverage, I'd reccommend the banana collada or mojito.

We like going there for lunch! It is lovely to see the boats come and to enjoy the soft wind. The food is always nice! We like the dutch specialty Dutch kroketten. They have slow but fun services. The girls always laugh and smile!

This is a great restaurant right on the water. Beautiful views and delicious fresh sea food. I had the catch of the day, which was red snapper and it was very good. It was literally caught this morning and brought from the boat 10 minutes before I ordered. Being from Colorado, I do not ever get sea food that fresh, so it was quite the treat.

We saw all the good reviews for It Rains Fishes and were looking forward to dinner. The food wasn't bad, but definitely on the high side for prices and the quality could be found at other places. We had try to go on the Fish Market night, but we missed it being too late. We were also surprised as the fish market was actually directed at European imports rather than local stuff (though that's on the menu all the time). The service was ok and the view was nice for sunsets, but the food was not memorable.

The bar of Islander is on the beach front and walking distance from the pier. The internet speed is great and a coke cost US$3. They also serve a herb water for $1. Overallgood place to sit down leisurely and check emails. Good for cruise passengers. Lots of outdoor sitting. The only downside is when the tropical storm passes by. Make sure you choose your seat wisely if you spot a storm or rain cloud approaching.

The Islander is a new restaurant and entertainment center for people of all ages on Bonaire. It is located in the center of Kralendijk

The food was good, the service was ok, the location and view were excellent. We ordered the fried rice with fish, squid and shrimp, the ahi tuna salad, and two appetizers. The waiter forgot the appetizers, but the two main dishes that came were good. The best thing about this restaurant/bar is the location. There is no other restaurant on a pier in the ocean in town. The pier extends about 100 feet into the ocean and is surrounded by docked sailboats. Lights light up the water underneath the dock. Great ambience for dinner particularly at night.

My wife and I have been going to Karels Beach Bar since we first started coming to Bonaire.Karels is built on a pier over the water. As you can see from the photo below, taken from the right side of the restaurant, Karels has a great view over the water.Airlines don't provide much in the way of food these days, so when our friends come to Bonaire, Karels is the first place we visit to feed our hungry friends.Karels has a great menu that rangers from great burgers, to salads to local seafood dishes.For sports fans, Karels has a large screen sports bar in a pavilion near the front of the restaurant. You can get a bucket of beers and watch your favorite game (cable is very expensive on Bonaire, so this is a great resource if you've got to see "the game").

My 27yo son and I stopped for lunch at Foodies after a morning exploring Lac Baai. We were greeted warmly; afforded a comfortable wicker seat on the porch with a view East to the Bay. Our experience was nothing short of incredible - far exceeding our expectation. We went with the fresh catch - tuna. You can see from the picture that the preparation and creativity are both exceptional, as was the service throughout our relaxing lunch. Food: exceptionalService: exceptional
