It Rains Fishes
It Rains Fishes is a modern restaurant with a beautiful view over the Caribbean Sea and ideally located on the boulevard in the center of Kralendijk. Since October 2017 owners Huub de Groot and Shaina Offerman have completely renovated the restaurant, with a new kitchen, stylish decor and renewed menu. It Rains Fishes actually consists of three parts, the restaurant section, the Chef’s Table and a lounge setting where you can enjoy the view while enjoying a drink, wine or tropical cocktail.
Fishing is still a big part of Bonairian culture. There are a few fishing boats in front of It Rains Fishes that depart almost daily in the early morning to go fishing. The catch for the restaurant is cleaned immediately after returning. Depending on the daily catch, many of these fish can be found on the menu. Apart from locally caught fish, fresh fish is also flown in from countries such as the Netherlands, America and Canada.
Fresh Fish Market
For those who prefer to buy the fish themselves and prepare it at home, that’s possible too. The restaurant has a Fresh Fish Market where fresh local fish and seafood is sold.
