Ordered the ribs, tasted awful and dry... Paid and left after a few bites. Go to Van Der Tweels and get smoked chicken from the Chicken guy and a salad instead. This place needs an overhaul..

We enjoyed the food. Small open air place, yet covered. No AC, but not needed at all on windy Bonaire. They seem to only be open during the weekends. Locals order a ton of food for take aways. So a testament that it will surely...More

We always get bbq at this place the first and last night of our trip. The fish, chicken satay and ribs are yummy! Good for eating there or take out! Gluten free as well:)

the ribs are melt in your mouth delicious. I look forward to stopping at Bobbejan's every visit. Have to limit myself to just the ribs and fries, though I want to order everything.
