We decided to make reservations at L'Amuse after reading the many positive reviews it received on Trip Advisor. We were very glad we did!
We were greeted warmly and sat outside on the patio, in very comfortable tufted velvet chairs.
The patio was comfortable and had a nice breeze to ward off any insect predators.
The waitress/sous chef informed us that they did not utilize menus in the evening, and so she proceeded to tell us the "specials," this format allows them to use the freshest, local ingredients available. Although we could have ordered one of the tempting "special" dishes alone, we opted to put our appetites in the chef's hands and chose a 3 course menu, prepared and chosen by the chef. The waitress made sure to ask us if we had any particular food dislikes or food allergies.
Our first course included prosciutto, parma ham, and another cured meat, olives, garlic/olive oil shrimp skewers (FANTASTIC), a fried beef dish, and local mussels with a delicious homemade mustard sauce, and a special curried "cole slaw." The subsequent courses included a pasta dish, beef tenderloin, and fish and scallops. We were so full, there was unfortunately no room for dessert!
I would recommend L'Amuse to anyone visiting (or living on) Bonaire who wants a unique and delicious meal experience!
I know they offer breakfast, brunch, and lunch options as well, that menu looked delicious!
Be prepared for "island time"-service is very friendly, but not overly fast.
The restaurant serves wine, but does not have a wine list-you will receive whatever they have on hand. Essentially, you choose between white, red, or sparkling wine. We chose a white, and what we were served was a Chilean wine, and we did end up enjoying the bottle very much.
