A fine dining experience while stille feeling casual. The staff was very friendly and open for questions and small talk. The food was amazing and so were the cocktails. Great for a care-free night out. Picture is of the duck breast.

We had the opportunity to visit Joe's on our last night in Bonaire. I cannot say enough about the amazing food and the wonderful service. From the oysters, Cesar salad, and amazing Grouper special.. It was all delicious and perfectly paired with good choice of wine. We were fortunate to have an after dinner drink of their house liquor. The food was amazing but their service set them apart from other restaurants on the island. I highly recommend you try this place out.

Loved this place. We were a very large group, and the waitress (co-owner) handled us not only flawlessly but with a great deal of humor that had us in stitches. The vegetarian options were a little bit on the bland side, but still delicious.

I love ordering Joe's steak. It's always delicious. The chef likes to cook on the rare side so if you want medium-rare order medium.

A good restaurant for sit-down dining. Full bar and menu. Parking is free and easy. My wahoo special was excellent. Dining is Al fresco or under a roof open to the road. Try their Yess liquor for dessert.

Welcome at Joe’s Restaurant!

Joe’s started in 2012 as a Grill House but over the past few years we can say that we became a restaurant with a broad international menu including many delicious dishes, offering great service in combination with high quality dishes at affordable prices.

Enjoy the casual and friendly atmosphere at Joe’s while having a tasty meal together with a good glass of wine, a beer or a Caribbean cocktail. Joe’s Restaurant is one of the few restaurants with a kids corner where the children can play and have fun.

The restaurant is open five days a week.

Additional Info

Our Broad Selection of Beers
“As owner and chef I can really enjoy a good beer. Besides the regular beers, I have designed a beer menu that includes a tasty treat for everyone. From a soft and fresh 2% beer to a strong 11% beer. Beers from different country’s like Belgium, Holland and even a beer from Bonaire. Ask your waiter for the beer menu! Beer belongs in her own glass. Not only because it looks nice, but more important because of the taste. That’s the reason we try to serve every beer in her own glass. Not into beer? Take a look at our wine menu or maybe start with one of our Gin & Tonics.” Bart Tholen – Owner & Chef at Joe’s Bonaire

Yess! Our Own Liquor
Yess! coffee liquor contains 21% alcohol and has a sweet, fruity and spicy taste with tones of fruit, caramel and black pepper. It is produced locally on the island of Bonaire and exclusively available at Joe’s Restaurant for $22.50 per bottle.
