It Rains Fishes

The food is great here by big city standards. But you must sit up on the concrete part not down on the tables right by the road (only relevant if you are a party of 2). This is because the service is bad on the lower tables and excellent on the upper tables. Also, by the way, you will see trucks parked on the ocean side of the street on the sidewalk but police tow from there so don't park there.

Yummy Oysters, great service and delicious 3 course menu! I kicked off with an Ice Tea Cocktail, which is personally disliked, but a great sauvignon made up for it! Food 5 stars, Service 5 stars, even though the little cocktail mistake still hits the fiver for me, keep it up!

We had the most amazing dinner . Our waitress, Britney "B" was the best waitress I think we have ever had . The food was just perfect. We had dinner there the last night we were on the island it sure was the perfect evening thanks to Rains Fishes and "B" .We have had dinner there every time we visit the Island , NEVER disappointed, its a must do.. Cheers, The Hawkins.

We walked down the Malecon to this place and were pleasantly surprised. Excellent mojitos and some tasty dishes. Most impressed by the way Ricardo was handling his many, many tables. Greeted every table with smiles and jokes, took orders, delivered drinks and food with alacrity. The guy was a one-man show, and we said as much. Kudos, Ricardo!

Yummy food. Just everything we all ate we really liked. But we booked a couple of months in advance for our anniversary and where quite surprised they did nothing like even a flower from the many out front. Or a cute desert. I have never had that happen before and this was our 36 year anniversary. The waiter did a great job but no mention of the fact we where there for our anniversary. That was a fail.

The patio dining vibe exceeded the quite good food; the place has an upbeat energy and scene-y vibe.

Food here was excellent, I’d even go so far as saying it was the best meal we had whilst on Bonaire. Staff was friendly and attentive as well as being very accommodating to my keto eating preference.

Had the lunch special here. Really great location and great prices for lunch. Dinner looks promising as a courses meal, but we didn't try it.

We had a great night out here. Food came out appropriately hot or cold, and a reasonable amount of time for a group of 10. Our waitress did an excellent job with our orders, everything was correct and tasted great. Good value, good drinks. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice restaurant.

We ordered the 3 course menu with cerviche, and tuna sashimi as starters ; tuna 3 way and catch of the day as main course and Lucian icecream cake as dessert. It is overall a good meal. Especially the tuna and icecream cake were a delight.

Service is very European which to us yanks feels slow. But if you relax and enjoy the experience the food is excellent. Even the beef tenderloin at a seafood place was outstanding!

Visited this restaurant with colleagues. Decided to go for their three-course meal. I had the carpaccio as a starter. The meat was just a tad too soft in my opinion, but taste and presentation was ok.For mains I picked the catch of the day, which was red snapper. Loved the sauce, and the fish filet was cooked well, but it still contained a few leftover pieces of fish bone.And for dessert I chose the brownie cake with chocolate sauce, which was quite delicious.Overall a pleasant visit, with very courteous and professional staff.

It Rains Fishes is a modern restaurant with a beautiful view over the Caribbean Sea and ideally located on the boulevard in the center of Kralendijk. Since October 2017 owners Huub de Groot and Shaina Offerman have completely renovated the restaurant, with a new kitchen, stylish decor and renewed menu. It Rains Fishes actually consists of three parts, the restaurant section, the Chef’s Table and a lounge setting where you can enjoy the view while enjoying a drink, wine or tropical cocktail.

Fresh fish
Fishing is still a big part of Bonairian culture. There are a few fishing boats in front of It Rains Fishes that depart almost daily in the early morning to go fishing. The catch for the restaurant is cleaned immediately after returning. Depending on the daily catch, many of these fish can be found on the menu. Apart from locally caught fish, fresh fish is also flown in from countries such as the Netherlands, America and Canada.

Fresh Fish Market
For those who prefer to buy the fish themselves and prepare it at home, that’s possible too. The restaurant has a Fresh Fish Market where fresh local fish and seafood is sold.

For more information feel free to email us at info@itrainsfishesbonaire.com.
