This was our 3rd year to visit Bonaire & we excited about getting a Kite Burger, but the new owner changed it. There wasn't the special seasoning. She added BBQ sauce which overpowered the hamburger & was really messy. Probably would not go back. If...More

Stopped here after several locals recommended this place and they were right! Delicious lionfish burgers-excellent hamburgers too. Would definitely recommend stopping here for lunch between dives.

This place has an outstanding lionfish burger. It's kind of a big deal because lionfish are an invasive species on the reef, so each burger you buy helps clean up the reef. If you are a diver, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Getting...More

This time we finally got to try the lion fish burgers. We found the food truck just a walk away from our hotel. Fresh fish, grilled on the spot and a nice spicy sauce. Can't go wrong. Quick lunch. We picked up lunch twice. Would...More
