We had meals here twice - one time to pick up a pizza and the other we managed to hit the buffet night. The pizza is great - especially if you like thin crust. We found it better than the other highly rated pizza diner. We are not crazy about buffets but we didn't feel like driving around for another... More

We always stay at Captain Don's Habitat and Rum Runners is a part of that. It is good food, Nicely located by the sea and really Nice staff. If we ever book a different Hotel we will for sure Go back to Rum Runners

We have visited Bonaire for many years and always make time for pizza night at Rum Runners. They have the best atmosphere and ingredients, so delicious!

The atmosphere is great. The restaurant sits atop a waterside cliff so the view is fantastic. The service is slow but the fish dinner is very tasty. $26 for a single full fish dinner was typical. I'd recommend this restaurant for its atmosphere and fish if one has time to wait for the food to arrive.

We eat at Rum Runners several times on each trip to Bonaire. It is a beautiful, seaside location and the food is very good and reasonably priced. We'll be back!!!

We had a reservation and on arrival our table was pointed out to us. Several people who arrived after us were given water and bread promptly. Some were ordering before we received water. After 30 minutes we left and went to a restaurant where we knew the service was good. Funny thing is for 30 minutes no one bothered to... More

We sat at the water's edge and ordered pizzas, apps and beer. One friend ordered a salmon dish and was VERY disappointed; he said it was overcooked, dried out and tasteless (and it was pretty expensive - $30.00 usd). I had a lamb appetizer and a Cesar salad as I wasn't terribly hungry, and it was really, really good. My... More

I have been going to Rum runners for 15 years. We have always enjoyed the dining there. Two weeks ago we were there. The waiter dropped a pizza in my lap ruining my pants. He apologized but said he hit my elbow, that is true. He did. This event got everybody’s attention including the manger that was on duty behind... More

Dear Greg, Thank you for taking your time to wright your findings. You are right indeed I am not happy with how this was handled! As you know that this is not how things normally go at Rum Runners. I looked into the matter and unfortunately it was case of "I thought you to care of that". We discussed the... More

If you're looking for a good pizza in a few good drinks try rum runners. Their pizza oven amitts and wonderful aroma of pizza baking while you look out over the ocean. The staff is very attentive and their prices are very reasonable.

The ocean side setting makes the atmosphere for us. The food was less wonderful. I had the steamed scollops and salmon filet. Each were steamed in baskets with veggies with the scallops stacked on the second level. The scallops were over-cooked and rubbery - the salmon was tasteless. The veggies were tasteless/bland as well. The other's in our party of... More
