Restaurant is now closed. There are rumors of a renovation and new restaurant in the same location, but nothing definite.
We always looked forward to eating at Richards when we returned to Bonaire. Unfortunately, this Feburary when we went, it was closed. We missed eating there.
Here was an icon for years. Most of our friends and family would enjoy the atmosphere and good food every year we came to visti Bonaire. The end of an era. The food was good and many a time we would sit at the Bar with Richard and tell stories. Sorry to see you go.
