For an island with limited resources, Bonaire has earned a reputation for having some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean. Island chefs continue to place high in annual regional and international competitions.
Local “snacks” serve dishes that are considered to be traditional. Menus are mostly fresh stews, soups and fried treats. Of course, fresh fish is also featured. While Bonaire has a few “brand name” fast food outlets, each establishment adds its own “local” flare.
The more upscale restaurants generally have extensive wine lists and very creative menus.
From chic to home cooking, Bonaire has it all. Visitors can choose from many different ethnic offerings. Indonesian, Chinese, Surinam, Continental, French, Italian…the list goes on! Diners can expect to pay moderate prices much in line with a medium city in the US, South America or Europe.
