At Sea- in dining heaven

My family and I have dined with Chef Rick and his wife, Kim, for many years. They started off in an unassuming location with only a handful of tables. Service was intimate and the setting was magical. The noticeable aspect of dining was Chef Rick’s creative plating and flawless presentation. Over time, Chef Rick and Kim wanted to grow so purchased a magnificent ocean view spot on the outskirts of sleepy Kralendijk. I have had the privilege of many dinners but recently, was blown away by a 5 course surprise tasting menu.

Chef Rick invited my boyfriend and I to sample his new menu paired with some amazing wines. The 5 courses were truly sublime. Chef Rick was keenly aware of my dietary preferences (non meat eater) and a lighter fare.

We were seated in a corner high top near the bar. The place is bustling but the focus is on food. The waitstaff are supportive and efficient and seem to always know what you need and when. I was never searching around for the next course or water.

The food came at a slow but steady pace. Each course was presented in an artful way.  Flavors were undeniably some of the best I have experienced in 15 years living and dining on Bonaire. Each course tantalized our taste buds.

Wine flowed with each course. I loved the Saint Clemente Chardonnay. Seth loved his Malbec. Each course was paired perfectly with a wine well suited to compliment the food flavors.

Jay Frans is the man behind the bar. His skill and finesse is apparent and his charm enhances the bar experience. We enjoyed watching him craft some creative cocktails. For those enjoying a bar experience, At Sea has a cozy spot for you!
