We opted for the fresh catch of the day, salad, and another side. Everything was absolutely delicious and we were lucky enough to enjoy fresh fish all 7 of... More

My husband arranged to have Philip prepare a special surprise anniversary dinner on Mar 2, 2017. What an amazing experience. Philip set a beautiful table outside and the wine selections were excellent. We started with the roasted zucchini and curry soup. Simply amazing! Next course was smoke wahoo with capers and wasabi mayonnaise. Again, a perfectly prepared dish. Our main... More

Half way thru our stay on Bonaire, we had arranged for Philip Joukes to come into our villa and prepare a fantastic dinner. We were given a choice of a three or five course meal (we chose the the three) with the additional option of Philip choosing the wine (we opted for choosing our own). We were served an appetizer...

You must book at least one dinner. You will not regret it. Everything was excellent, from the presentation to the portions. Philip takes care of everything. We booked a four course meal for four adults. My favorite was the lobster bisque.

On our trip to Bonaire we stayed in the amazing "villa Lareef", a luxurious villa designed by Piet Boon. We rented this villa from Pure Villas and they advised us booking Private Chef Philip. Did not know what to expect but as the service and qualitystandard of Pure Villas was unseen we were confident to book Private Chef Philip. Glad... More

Philip and his staff provide a delicious and beautiful meal while you are in a rental house on vacation in Bonaire. We visit Bonaire every year and we have been enjoying the Philip dining experience for about five years now. He will plan the menu with you so you are able to get the meal you desire. The food is...

After a week of diving dinner at the villa with Chef Philip was an incredibly relaxing way to end our trip. I split the review into 2 parts, FOOD and INTERACTION for your convenience. FOOD: Knowing we had an early flight the next morning, we had arranged to have Philip prepare a 5 course meal in the comfort of our... More

We're a bit late in writing this. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at our apartment in Den Laman. The food and service were both remarkable. I have to give a special shout to his mushroom soup--you won't be the same after you try it. Thanks Philip for an amazing dinner.
