Went for lunch.I had the hamburger and it was OK.My buddy had the pulled pork sandwich and it was terrible.Pork was refrigerator cold in middle, dry,stringy and tasteless.Bun was stale and crumbled on touch. We were here twice a year ago and the food was serviceable so we returned for the view.Not anymore.

Food is expensive, service was slow. Menu choices were limited and aside from the pizza and calamari most of the food was just so-so. Took over two hours for a simple dinner. Breakfast is served buffet style, seat yourself, serve yourself. Breakfast items were frequently "sold" out before all guests were served. Restaurant requires a separate account setup in addition...

the food was decent although a little pricey. Drinks were also good but not stand out. The view was outstanding and very romantic-there is a multi level stone terrace that gives several tables a lot of privacy. you can eat to the sound of waves hitting the rocks below. lovely at sunset. They did have a vegetarian option which was... More

I stayed two weeks at neighbouring Hamlet Oasis Villas and having Rum Runners just steps away was very convenient. Morning breakfast buffet was scrumptious. The personalized customized omelets were delicious. The drinks at the bar were tasty, expertly mixed and the surprise gift with each drink was welcomed throughout my two week visit (I now have a collection). I enjoyed... More

We went to Rum Runners twice during our visit. New Year's Eve they had a buffett that was excellent. The next time we were there we had pizza. The pizza is excellent and very different with all the varieties. The service was a little slow but our waiter was fantastic. He joked with us about the wait time. It is... More

We came to eat here on our last night, sadly, because had we come earlier we would have had at least another dinner or two. The location of the restaurant can't be beat, with gorgeous views of the ocean and the water lit up at night to watch all the huge tarpon swimming around and night divers coming in and... More

Great location on the water. Service is slow and small drink menu. We went for lunch and the place was very quiet. Came back for dinner another day and they had a BBQ for dive groups and we couldn't get in.

We go to Rum Runners every time we are in Bonaire. The setting right on the water is very nice. The experienced wait staff make things run smooth and the chef continues to deliver a good meal, My husband had a giant baby back rib dinner and I had chicken sate. My sister and my son both had beef burgers... More

Enjoyed a few dinners with drinks and food, love the humour of the staff and despite the amount of people we had our food fresh within acceptable time. Drinks are very nice and tasty.

Spent another great week in Bonaire. Had dinner here several times. Food is great. Atmosphere is great. Sunsets are the perfect million dollar view.
