My friends have owned Capriccio’s since as long as I have been traveling or living on Bonaire. They moved from their location next to City Cafe and have settled where Blue Moon used to be on Kaya Charles Helmund near the cruise ship/Don Andres dock. The building is massive and quite modern. The outdoor setting has several private booths I highly recommend. There is a small bar for two to pick up take out and perhaps have a drink. Inside the walls are lined with large wine racks. I believe Lola has the best wine list on island and if not the ABC islands. The room is brightly lit with modern fixtures. The ceilings are high. This does create a rather lively dining environment when the room is full as it was last night. There is also a boutique with assorted Italian gourmet items.

The servers are the same. The menu remains the same. Capriccio’s features homemade pasta which in my opinion is sublime. The bread is always outstanding, the bruscetta full of fresh tomatoes,extra virgin oil oil and lovely fresh shaved garlic. My friends (from Italy) and I ordered pasta. I had the shrimp and pasta which was garlicky and delicious. A small house salad accompanies the meal. My friend ordered a bottle of Torcicoda Primitivo (Twist the Tail). It was full bodied perfect to a rich savory pasta.

The table had expressos, I passed. I enjoyed my dining experience with great friends. I wish Lola, Andrea and Mauro the best in their new venue. It’s quite lavish and special.

Jamaican Food at Kishikishi

November 21, 2011

Kishi Kishi Lunch Cafe is an oasis out in the kunuku not far from windy Lac Bay. Dianne and Georgie have hired an amazing staff to create some lovely healthy menus. I was at Kishi Kishi twice this past summer and had lovely Jamaican fare. Before or after, stop in the lovely butterfly farm. It is a tranquil setting perfect to enjoy nature.

Bistro De Paris – Delightful French Bliss

November 21, 2011

Patrice Rannou opened Bistro de Paris in 2004 down the street from my former home. When my daughter was finished school work, we would walk down and have a lovely lunch . My favorite was the lovely salads, she loved their panini’s. Patrice always welcomed us with open arms and still does today. My discerning clients always make a stop to Bistro. One of my VIP windsurf pros, Mike Burns, swears that the lamb shank is the best anywhere.

Sometimes I prepare dinner at home and head over later in the evening to savour some wine and dessert. Patrice’s Tarte Tartin is divine. Maggie loves his mousse. One can dine al fresco or inside in AC comfort. Wherever you sit, Patrice will offer a casual and relaxed experience with delicious cuisine. To book your table call 717 7070 or arrange your entire vacation with me and utilize my free Concierge Services. I can be reached at

Davy Scheffers, H3111 packs up his gear, throws a few board shorts into a bag and moves to Bonaire for his annual winter pilgrimage. Davy is hard core and holds back for nothing. This photo was taken in the mangroves of pristine Lac Bay. The mangroves are perfect for flat water freestyle practice. It’s serene as well. Most pros head that way to train while others like to blast in the crystal clear blue out front of the shops.
