Despite the negative critics we visited the place on a Saturday night. Based on this single visit we can only say that the staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was nice and the location is an absolute bonus. We will definitely come back.

An absolute MUST when visiting Bonaire. We found this restaurant by accident. What a marvelous find! Our food was sensational and our waiter Hensley was so attentive and personable. He interacted with our 7 year old and made him feel welcome. The food was so exception our little one asked Hensley “can i eat here for my birthday” ? Incredible. Thank you Hensley for welcoming us to Bonaire and sharing your native hospitality.

A great find on the nicest beach. Just a shack with a bar, a cooler and a small kitchen. Great local food. No menu. Just whatever the family has cooked, you can buy some. Loved the experience. Such friendly people.

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").

Filet mignon and fresh adult beverages on the seaside. Service was amazing, food and drinks even better. Make a reservation online, fills up fast. Great music too!

Nice spot to sit by the water. Very cool to watch fish at night with the light shining into the water!

Very good Ceviche: big cubes of fresh fish! Our Seafood Platter for two came with fish and shrimps with a good seasoning of coconut milk. Try it!
