Clientele was a mix of residents and tourists, and we sequenced our dining schedule to be there on one of the weekend days when Bobbajen's is open. I usually judge a BBQ place by their rubs and sauce, and by the selection of outboard sauces...More

Been to Bobbejan's many times and each time it has been just as good as the last. The food is basic, the staff friendly and the atmosphere reminiscent of every Caribbean cafe you have ever seen or eaten in. While nothing on Bonaire is cheap,...More

If you don't know where it is, you'll miss it. Excellent ribs and salad. Casual seating and a fair priced meal.
