Curbside dining. Excellent lobster bisque. Fresh seafood platter, Fresh bread not bad either. Unfortunately, no local beer.

We ordered the fish soup and the lobster bisque, as well as the catch of the day (snapper). All were wonderful and delicious. Our waitress, Nicole, was very kind and super with being so busy with many tables. They also had a Henk Rozendaal painting hanging in the dining area, love his work. Great place to have a wonderful dining... More

I have been to Bonaire for 3 scuba trips and while shopping during the day would see this restaurant and give it little thought. What a mistake! Went with my husband and another couple, sat outside and had one the the most amazing meals ever! The wahoo was a generous portion and prepared to perfection. Loved the potatoes and Monique... More

Make a reservation and ask for an outside table - usually too hot inside. I had a steak that was very good with vegetables that were also very fresh. Service was prompt and friendly. Drinks were ample. I will eat here again.

Bonaire is a special island and Mona Lisa, a special restaurant that has wonderful food and a delightful Dutch-Bonairian atmosphere. We often end up dining &/or sipping a night cap there multiple times a week when we are there.

We finally found Mona Lisa open and chose a streetside table to take advantage if the breeze during our October visit to Bonaire (no a/c). The specials of the day and menu were tempting in their own ways and the wine list was great. We savored our tuna tartar appetizer and our wahoo dinners melted in our mouths. So glad... More

I was diving with four friends on bonaire and we checked out all the nice restaurants on the Island. The starter (Onion Soup) was fantastic, also the main course (Yellow-Fin Tuna Steak) was one of the best I've ever eaten. Very friendly staff and nice little restaurant in the center of Kralendijk/Bonaire.

Dodging heaving rain we found ourselves at Mona Lisa for an early evening supper on a Tuesday night. We were the only couple in the restaurant (18:15) it soon filled up to full capacity by 19:30. The menu choice was relatively small with around 6 options of fish + meat. The rare sirloin streak was well cooked, rested and garnished... More
