“AMAZING lion fish sandwich...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

During our recent week of diving in Bonaire we were told a must stop and eat site was Cactus Blue and to have the lion fish sandwich. We tried 3days in a row but were always too late...the sign read "SOLD OUT". Finally on our last day we planned our dives around the arrival of the truck and were finally satisfied. AMAZING lion fish sandwich for sure!! But, the service was also fantastic and the scenic area furnished with comfy bean bag chairs made this an unforgettable experience.
Can't wait to return!! Thanks for the great food, in depth diving chat and warm hospitality!!
We'll be back.
Matt & Sadie G.

“Lion Fish Sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

My husband and I stopped here to get a lion fish sandwich. I'd read about them before we left Pennsylvania. It is a very mild fish. VERY good.... We were surprised he still had some available because we were there late in the afternoon.

“Great lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

We were too late to enjoy a lionfish burger (but hope to make it next week) but the Spicy Kite burger & Veggie Wrap were enjoyed with a few Bright's, sitting on beanbag chairs, at the side of the beach. Island living at it's best!

“A place we'll never forget and the lionfish sandwich will shock you!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Without a doubt the best place on Bonaire! Hagen the sole employee is a real joy to visit with while he prepares your food. I love the dining room which by the way is a bean bags on the beach! My only complaint was we had to leave the island to come home....
My wife & I ate there 5 times in the 8-days we were on Bonaire!

“Never thought I would give a catering truck a great review. But, here goes......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

If you want to try a lion fish burger, GET THERE EARLY. But if you get there late the burgers are still great. Pull up, place your order and get a great spot on the water or in the shade. Picnic style dining. A great spot to deco between dives!
