I was diving with four friends on bonaire and we checked out all the nice restaurants on the Island. The starter (Onion Soup) was fantastic, also the main course (Yellow-Fin Tuna Steak) was one of the best I've ever eaten. Very friendly staff and nice little restaurant in the center of Kralendijk/Bonaire.

Dodging heaving rain we found ourselves at Mona Lisa for an early evening supper on a Tuesday night. We were the only couple in the restaurant (18:15) it soon filled up to full capacity by 19:30. The menu choice was relatively small with around 6 options of fish + meat. The rare sirloin streak was well cooked, rested and garnished... More

We had dinner at the here on our most recent trip to Bonaire, the semi-open air seating was great providing an indoor/outdoor experience. The service was impeccible and the lobster bisque was too delicious for words. The Wahoo (catch of the day) with mustard sauce, scalloped potatoes and french onion soup all deserve merit as well. We had no complaints... More

Although we have traveled to Bonaire since 2004, this was the first time we had eaten here. I had the schnitzel and it was so good! The dessert was also delish!!! I had the passion fruit cheesecake and also tried the homemade sorbet that my husband had! Very good!!!

Service was very slow. Actually thought about walking out before the waitress finally showed up to fill our water glasses. Waited even longer for her to bring menus. To add to our dismay it was very hot and stuffy inside the restaurant. The menu is good but over priced. 95 minutes later we received our meal. At that point our... More

Really disappointed. Had high hopes. Monday night, a lot of places are closed. Got a 7pm reservation and were looking forward to it. Appetizer was Tuna Tartare with Foie Grasb and Truffle. Sounds amazing right? TASTELESS! Had 2 bites and told the waitress we didn't like it. The rest of the dishes including fresh catch of the day fish was... More

The food is consistently good otherwise they would not be here for sooo long. Same chef as 12 years ago. Have the Barracuda if it is offered with garlic lime butter - very delicious. My husband had red tail and yellow tail tuna with an asian sauce. Very good too. The Amsterdam salad is tasty. Good wine by the glass... More

Black and Yellowfin Tuna is fantastic as well as the Lobster Bisque. A little pricey, but the taste is worth it. Very convenient right downtown. Great service and friendly waitstaff.

A trip to Bonaire is not complete with a visit to Mona Lisa. They have a very cosy restaurant, but also a nice terrace on the main street. The food is excellent.
