Review of Breeze 'n Bites

Breeze 'n Bites
Ranked #38 of 139 Restaurants in Kralendijk
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$ 15 - US$ 25
Description: Breezes N' Bites is located on the waterfront at Den Laman Condominiums. The restaurant is run by Dick Bos, a name that is easily recognized by many long-time Bonaire visitors. From the early 1960's through the year 2000, the property that is now the location of Den Laman Condominiums was occupied by a single building that housed the very popular Den Laman Restaurant. Dick was the head chef during many of those years, and a main factor for the restaurants popularity. After a 15 year hiatus, during which he ran restaurants in Holland and Spain, he has returned to Den Laman, his beloved island of Bonaire and the location that inspired his culinary talents. Our Caribbean inspired menu changes brought to you by our talented chef changes daily according to what is freshly available. It offers steaks, chicken and vegetarian choices all expertly prepared and artfully presented. Of course, fish is the star of the show!! Supporting our local fisherman, we are able to provide the freshest seafood items available. Breezes N' Bites serves lunch from 11:30 am - 3:00 pm and dinner from 5:30 - 9:30 pm every day except Wednesday.

Had two average breakfasts and one very food dinner so far, chicken Florentine and a burger. Both nicely cooked and had good accompaniments. Service was attentive and the view is quite lovely. Full bar available and menu has good selection.

Great place to enjoy a relatively simple but tasty meal right at the ocean. We’ve been here several times and the staff was always very friendly and we felt at home right away. I would definitely recommend the fish soup which makes a great starter.

Look, to be fair, the wait staff was great. They were pleasant and had nice personalities. They checked on us often to ensure we were ok. However, the food took FOREVER. It was over an hour before the food made its way to the table. It appeared as if there were three people in the kitchen and they all looked busy. It did seem as if they were working one table at a time. One table would be complete and then they would look at the next ticket. At least, that is how it appeared and was likely not the case.

We ordered a local stew and a vegetarian ravioli. The meat in the stew seemed a little fatty and the ravioli was a store bought rendition that was not worth the hour wait...The sauce was minimal also. The cheese plate, we also ordered, was nothing more than a couple of crackers and three or four little bite size pieces of various cheeses with some soggy rye bread.

Overall, the atmosphere was nice and comfortable. It is right on the water allowing for some nice background noise of the water and a pleasant breeze. The staff was nice and courteous. The food, on the other hand, was not worth waiting the exorbitant time we had to wait.

I listed this as mid-range due to the fact that island dining prices can be a little higher than expected.

The service at this restaurant is very, very slow. There were 4 of us at the table and it took almost 2 hours to get our dinner. They ignore tourists and serve the locals first even if they arrive after them. They messed up the order as well. Rude staff didn't care about their customers.
Would not recommend unless you have 2-3 hours to sit and wait.
