Dining Updates

May 25, 2012

I just had a whirlwind week of dining bliss. I had some friends on island so I was sort of a tourist indulging on at some favorite locations as well as revisiting a few spots I have missed over the years. 


My neighbor treated me to Mother’s Day lunch at Kontiki. This is one of my favorite Bonaire lunch spots with stellar views of Lac Bay. We enjoyed the fresh fish being served that day. The hit was the fresh Mahi Mahi in a mango sauce. Of course the freshly made Pina Colada hit the spot. 



I had a lovely dessert later at Gio’s Gelato on Kaya Grandi. Honestly, this is as good as it gets. The selection is staggering including pistachio and tiramisu. If you are craving something sweet and delicious, look no more. 


My friend invited me to girl’s night at La Barca. I had frequented this oceanview restaurant a few years back and returned last week for an amazing dinner. This al fresco spot offers homemade pasta and fresh fish. I spoke to the chef and asked him to create a pasta seafood dish. He wowed me with an amazing puntanesca style concoction. It was sublime. I cannot wait to return. 


As mentioned in a previous post, Patrice from Bistro de Paris has moved his location to the marina side venue at Harbour Village. My friend and I dined at Zazu, the lovely bar on side. Patrice has created an amazing menu for those wishing to enjoy a lighter fare. I sampled the Vietnamese Spring Rolls and the Brie and Spinach Crepe. Both were amazing and delectable. As we dined, the local fisherman came in with two lovely fresh Mahi Mahi. This is a not to miss spot. I highly recommend the Ti Punch. 




I am pleased to offer free on island Concierge to all of my discerning guests. Allow the opportunity to reserve your table today and soon, embarking on Bonaire’s dining bliss.
