We were looking for a place to have lunch while we were exploring Bonaire and we saw their sign while cruising in our golf carts. Glad we stopped here. We couldn't have asked for a better place for lunch. The food we ordered was fabulous. Nothing over the top, just great tasting and a decent proportion. One thing to add is the views of the ocean here are perfect. Such a peaceful place to eat and enjoy a drink with friends. Good amount of normal car parking but might be a bit busier on the weekend. Don't bypass this place.

We live on Bonaire and Rum Runners is our go-to restaurant for ourselves and when we have visitors. We tell ourselves whenever we want to remember why we moved here, we eat at Rum Runners. It's directly on the ocean and every table has an ocean view.The food is terrific. Wide variety of dishes, and we think they do the best burgers on the island. You can also get fajitas, great pizza, steaks, chicken, fish and pasta. Prices are reasonable and the staff is terrific. Most of them have been there for years. We're there every Wednesday night, a standing date with our friends.They also do buffet nights, and Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners. There is a separate bar there and their gift shop stays open late. We think they have the best souvenirs on the island and frequently wander in there after dinner. During high season it's smart to make a reservation for dinner. At lunch you can just walk in.

Not much of a fan. The food is pricey but nothing to brag about. Went back for a 2nd time for stone grilled pizza, again, not all that.

Beautifull place to enjoy dinner. Youll sit on a cliff and in the water you will see big fishes in the water!

Good food. The quesadillas were really good! I did have an empty water glass for most of the visit, and nobody came to refill it.

Simply the best bar b que we have had anywhere! Claire, Flores, and the rest of the team have put together an amazing and diverse menu. The ambience is wonderful; outdoor seating overlooking the water with tiki torches. Kelby, at the bar, is not a bartender. He is a culinary genius! He creates unique drinks from scratch that are fantastic! Best drinks our family has had anywhere in the world! If you go to Bonaire, you need to go to Rum Runners!

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.

Great views and a lively bar. Service was quick and friendly. The food was average. We had each of their special menu items: carrots soup, dorado, and steak. Carrots soup was very good, but the steak was rather bland.

Good is great. The sunset views are spectacular. Come for the food, stay for the sunset, stay later for the Tarpon.
