Arrived on time for a 7:15 reservation booked in advance and, in place of a welcome greeting to the restaurant, we were coldly told that they needed our table for a 9 pm seating. It's bad protocol to book tables for fine dining with a <2hr turn, and even worse to tell guests as they arrive that they have a... More

The location is such that the view of Saba and the bay is breathtaking. It's a steep walk so ladies beware! Either get dropped at the door or avoid heels. They do have a sort of unfriendly attitude. Not sure if it's simply because their English is sort of challenged or it's a contrived behavior. Anyway look beyond it. The... More

We toured the Caribbean and this is the best restaurant of them all we have been! It can compete with the best ones in Europe. Great position, great food, great atmosphere. We were lucky to find a table even without the reservation. The bread is hot as every good restaurant shall serve. The only critic is that the bread was... More

Gave this place an average rate because the food is just that! Nothing to write home about. The decor and the service is above average but the food isn't. We ordered the tuna tacos, which were blah. My main course, the sea bass, was over salted. The chef must have been in love! We probably won't be back for dinner.... More

Overpriced, rude service and average to second rate food. Our hotel reserved a table overlooking the harbor - the restaurant had no record of the reservation and we were given a less than optimal table. (Upon returning to our hotel, the concierge confirmed that she had made a reservation as requested). At the onset of our meal, we requested a... More

We expected a special meal when we dined here. I ordered well done steak, something a good chef can prepare without turning the meat into shoe leather. Alas, shoe leather it was. The addition of a sauce that tasted like soy sauce from a grocery store did not improve the meal. Not everyone wants steak tartare! My husband 's meal... More

Bonito simply does not disappoint. The atmosphere is upbeat, fun, kind of loud, and inviting. The food and service are worth every penny. Fantastic seafood, but really everything is good.

What a place! Everything was great, food, drinks, atmosphere, service. The Ibiza pork was the winner for sure, the ribeye for two a close second. Definitely made it into my top 10 list. Will visit again!!
