Need help finding a place that serves Lion Fish as entree.

Greetings,

We would really like to try Lion Fish during our stay at Bonaire. I read it somewhere that Lion Fish can be a nuissance as well as they are sometimes caught and served at restaurants or diners, etc.

Anyone know of a place (or places) on Bonaire that serve Lion Fish on a regular basis --- and or at least periodic basis and if so, what days?

Thanks for your help - it is appreciated!

The Cactus Blue food truck at Kite Beach (Atlantis dive site) serves lionfish burgers. If you have Facebook, follow his page as he posts when he has them or is out of lionfish. And if you like regular burgers, it's certainly worth the trip for a Kite burger.

I also believe Pasa Bon pizza has lionfish pizza.

I'm sure other restaurants serve it, just can't recall specifically.

Pasa Bon Pizza uses lionfish on their fish pizza. Bistro de Paris sometimes has it on the menu.

we had it at Bistro de Paris, it was delicious! Pasa Bon Pizza was out when we were there but that's ok with me, I don't want fish on pizza anyway. The sushi place is looking to use it in some of their rolls. The problem is that not just anyone can hunt them (to protect the reefs) and if supply is low, it won't be on the menu. Do try and have some, it really is a delicious fish. And they're more than just a nuisance, they are a real threat to Caribbean reefs so it's really good that people are realizing how tasty they are.
