Description: It Rains Fishes is a modern restaurant with a beautiful view over the Caribbean Sea and ideally located on the boulevard in the center of Kralendijk. Since October 2017 owners Huub de Groot and Shaina Offerman have completely renovated the restaurant, with a new kitchen, stylish decor and renewed menu. It Rains Fishes actually consists of three parts, the restaurant section, the Chef’s Table and a lounge setting where you can enjoy the view while enjoying a drink, wine or tropical cocktail. Fresh fish Fishing is still a big part of Bonairian culture. There are a few fishing boats in front of It Rains Fishes that depart almost daily in the early morning to go fishing. The catch for the restaurant is cleaned immediately after returning. Depending on the daily catch, many of these fish can be found on the menu. Apart from locally caught fish, fresh fish is also flown in from countries such as the Netherlands, America and Canada.

The restaurant is right across from the waterfront, with nice view of the ocean and Klein Bonaire. The cocktail was excellent, the lighting soft but bright enough so one could actually read the menu, the food good, and the atmosphere relaxed. The super friendly manager, Michael, let us try to local cactus tequila for free and was very observant and congenial throughout the evening. A pleasant experience!

Solid choice and I would recommend. Location is great, food is good (but short of great), service had some misses but was still pretty good. I would probably eat here again on my next trip to Bonaire, but it is not a "must".

We took a shore excursion on a recent cruise and came across this wonderful restaurant. We ate fresh Wahoo that was grilled to perfection. Our waitress, Aime, was very helpfull and attentive. I have nothing bad to say about our experience.

After showing up without a reservation, the staff went out of their way to get us a table; a romantic spot for two.

The service was GREAT, as was the meal. We will be back!

Stopped in for Lunch and had a very tasty Shaved meat sandwich and Jordan had the catch of the day special, which that day was grilled Amberjack, she shared a bite with me and it was really good. My meat sandwich was also very good.
