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.

We make a point to eat at Bobbejan's at least once a weekend when we are on Bonaire. We get the Sampler and split it since portions are generous. Unfortunately, they are only open Friday though Sunday nights. The pork shops are delicious.

Not sure what everyone raves about but the ribs were small with very little tough meat. Sauce was nothing special either. Fries were generic store fries. No plans to go back again

Open just 3 days a week, so it's a must eat! My favorite; just plain ribs, just because they are the best on the Island (and beyond).

We went here for ribs based on the rave reviews folks on the island were giving us. Bobbejan's is only open on the weekends, and is not a very large place, though we did get seated quickly. The ribs were OK, but not the fall...More

I usually go straight from the airport to Bobbejan's when I arrive. Excellent fish dinners. Large tasty portions. Nearly always crowded, so go early or be prepared to wait. I usually phone ahead and order takeout. The staff are pretty good at estimating the time...More

We have been eating here as our first and last meal on the island for over 10+ years and it is always the best! They have other great stuff on the menu, but we always go for the ribs and fries, oh and cold beer...More
