We had the pleasure of eating here twice during our stay in Bonaire, a new restaurant to us after 11 years away. The service is gracious and calm, professional and warm. The food was excellent quality, especially the pork dishes, and portions hearty, prices medium. We love the atmosphere of the modernized Dutch house with the beautiful wooden beams inside,... More

I love to order Joe's Steak which is a very tender 16oz cut. My wife ordered the Schnitzel and loved it. On another visit, we had the tasty smoked blue marlin appetizer. I ordered the Ostrich and was pleasantly surprised how similar it is to beef steak.

Joe's is a great, casual, mostly outdoor gem on Bonaire. A European feeling (you'll never be rushed) and a menu with a wide variety of seafood & meat. We've been twice in the past week and shared the pork spareribs ("Fibrene") and they were magnificent. Call ahead for reservation to score a table out front. This is a kid friendly... More

We asked a few locals where to eat and they recommended Joe's. It was expensive and just "ok" nothing spectacular. I had the tuna special and my Mom had the more European option of stuffed pork. The pork was covered in so much bacon it was inedible...I know, tough to complain about TOO much bacon, alas. The tuna was pretty... More

We love this place! Bart knows his beers, and my husband loves their variety and Bart can figure my husband's new favorite! We remembered the cheese and mushroom appetizer from last year and it didn't disappoint! The meat was so tender in both the chicken satay (delicious Dutch peanut butter sauce) and the stuffed park tenderloin, wrapped in bacon that... More

This restaurant is fabulous! The service was amazing. Our food and drinks were exactly as ordered. Large servings made for great lunch the next day. We sat outside, no problems with mosquitoes or flies. Reservations were made via email the day prior. We will be back!

We sat for an early dinner - they open at 5:30PM. I tried the schnitzel, covered with mushrooms and onions - very good. Others at the table had meat and fish entrees. All good. Service was fast and friendly. As long as there is a breeze it's a comfortable place to dine. We will eat here again.

I brought my wife and kids (11 and 13) here. My wife had $20 fajitas, my daughter had the $20 burger, and my son and I had the $21 ribs. The fajitas were basically a stewed meet in a bowl with fixings on the side. My daughters burger (1/3 if not 1/2 lb) was very salty. The ribs were ok... More
