The Dock

During our visit last Wednesday with group of 6 we had a great experience. The service was great with eye for detail which you not often get. Just as service should be. Food was great and tasty as well. The Tuna sashimi, beef tataki, red snapper, tenderloin and pasta. All was good seared and prepared. Enjoy a great bottle of wine and have a good time. Do go for a quick bite but take Bonaire time for the meal here. Price are at higher end but not too expensive.

The most romantic sophisticated place on Bonaire to have dinner. The quiet. The soft lap of the water. The sophisticated cocktails. The attentiveness of the staff. The murmur of Dutch conversation. The cloth napkins. The plating. The delicious red snapper. The garnishes. The sweet square of apple cake. The pleasant warmth of the coffee.

Nice food. Although they suggested some bread with olives and ham and it turned out to be 23 dollar just for this starter! We def didn’t expected that. In the evening very nice waitresses. We came for lunch and had a very grumpy and rude waitress that day.

Service is very slow. Only got a drink menu to start. Took a while to get a food menu and then have my order taken. 1 hour total to get food. Tenderloin pasta was good, but slightly bland. Cheesecake dessert was tasty. The best item of the night was the chocolate Frappuccino. Prices are a bit expensive for the quality and quantity of food.

The chocolate Frappuccino is a 10 out of 10. I ordered the ribeye steak, medium rare, but it was more on the medium side. I know Caribbean time is much slower than normal, but The Dock takes it to another level. I had a reservation at 5:30 PM. I received the drinks menu immediately, but I didn’t get the dinner menu until 5:40 PM. Additionally, I didn’t get my dinner until 6:30 PM. The servers were friendly though. Lastly, one particularly annoying thing about this restaurant is it is situated beside a pool and children would jump into it and splash all over the dinners. Not a pleasant dining experience for all customers.

my personal favorite dinner restaurant in Bonaire. perfectly walks the line between fine dining and casual. Chicken Satay and the Tenderloin with the Truffle sauce are my go-tos.

Beautifully decorated for Christmas. Great service. Only tried the Christmas dinner, it was mass produced. Not tasty. Lobster bisque was not creamy. Main couse tiny portion of fish and potato gratin was not cooked all the way and had no cheese. I would avoid the special event menu as someone else did not like their BBQ night..creme Brule was nice. Drinks were nice.

A bit hard to find at the end of a long hallway, but definitely worth a visit. Good quality food and lovely view over the harbor.We got the Japanese salad with tune which was basic but tasted amazing.

The place is REALLY pretty. Very romantic if you wanna go with your partner. And the food was also great. But the service was lacking. It's very slow and not coordinated. We came first and yet two other tables got their food before us. (Let me not even mention that they were white folks) and we were melanin locals. But I'm not a problematic person but it happened too many times that night. Others were served before us. We asked for check and there is no one to be served yet it takes sooooo long to bring one check... they ask how was the night I say... mehhh ongeveer... she don't even ask or care what was wrong. But it was my first time having dinner there. So I will go again and give it a second chance and see if it will happen again. Or if it was just an unlucky night...

A very fast service compared with other restaurants on the island, very good food .our waitress I believe she was in a bad mood:) her smile was turning in a smirk every time..her English was not at the level of simple ordering food,we had to repeat 2,3 times what we want. Sorry, as you can see in my journey of trips I do not complain,I am not one of those..

We went for dinner to this super cute place last night. Started of with really good cocktails and then had even more better food.The surf & turf was completely on point and those shrimps were to die for 🤤 they nailed the pasta too. It was so tasty we forgot to take pictures.If I could service would get 6 stars. Attentive, friendly but not hovering over the table all the time. Since we couldn’t get a taxi they gave us a ride back to our hotel. Don’t expect that though - I guess it’s not on the menu 😉
