“Had an enjoyable time!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

My folks and I had a dinner here in May. I'd asked for a daiquiri from the bar, and they don't have them. That was my greatest disappointment. Very limited bar options. A frosty cool drink while eating and enjoying a sunset would have been perfect. I had wine instead. (whine).

They had a dish where they scrape along inside a partly hollowed and huge (nearly a foot high and I can't say how wide around) wheel of Parmesan. They pour minced truffle and pasta inside, and a kind of alcohol that briefly flames. It's a very pretty presentation and a good tasting dish. We enjoyed all our food there. It got very busy/packed after 7. We saw a good sunset too there.

Our resort was next door to this property, and pretty convenient to walk to (along the road, there's no oceanside access point). All in all, it was a lovely time, thank you.

“Great location”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Arriving our first night we took advantage of rum runners being so close to our resort we strolled up and fortunately got a table. The food was of good quality but it was a bit pricey for what it was. The location being directly on the water with night lighting was delightful to see the tarpon swimming so close to shore.

“Superb ambience , great service and good food”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We went to Rum Runners on several occasions while in Bonaire . The location and ambience are typically Caribbean , beautiful sunsets , and the ocean front part of the restaurant is well lit and you can watch the huge Tarpon feed on the old carcasses from the the restaurant . Food is very good ,especially the pizza and fish

“When you can't go anywhere else...”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

They keep trying, and they keep hitting a wall. Nothing wrong with Rum Runners, and if you're staying at Captain Don's, you'll eat there a lot (all your breakfasts and many of your lunches probably) but it gets old fast and the friendly service doesn't really compensate for an overall average experience. At least it's not overpriced...

“Rum Runners - Bonaire”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Within walking distance from our villa, Rum Runners has a beautiful location and a fairly decent menu selection. In the afternoons, though, you can grab lunch and watch the King Lizards sun themselves on the seaside rocks
