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

The beer was good, but unfortunately this is the only positive point ! We ordered some ribs, that were served very quickly . Too quicly, because they were almost cold in the middle. For 11$, as shown on the picture in Tripadvisor, that would have...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.

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).
