Description: Kite City is the combination of a Food Truck, bean bags and great location, spiced by nice music, good service and tasty fresh food in a very casual package. We get the freshest fish locally and from Venezuela, shop daily for veggies meat and other products and from a food truck like to create some great nice comfort food. We just have to say, we do it with passion - we are not a Fast Food Truck - and reason we have chosen Bonaire and a beach side is exactly to increase that passion and satisfaction level. If you come to Bonaire to relax....Don't stress the chef here, instead...Let us surprise you and bring you down to our relaxation level. Check us on Facebook.

“great fish burgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

It doesn’t look like much with dishes coming from a portable food trailer, but don’t let looks deceive you. The tuna and mahi mahi burger were wonderful with fresh ingredients and a yummy sauce. There’s a big awning with bean bag chairs, music, and TV so it’s a great little set up right on the beach.

“An absolute MUST on Bonaire!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

I want to start off by saying that somewhere really has to impress me for me to write a review. Kite City is our new fav on Bonaire. The food and service are unmatched. My only regret is we didn't find this place earlier in our trip. The only thing that matches the quality of their food is their service. We started off with a tuna burger which was probably the best tuna I have ever eaten. We were so impressed we went back 2 days later and had another tuna burger and the sashimi plate. It was unreal how good it was. It had several different varieties of tuna, wahoo, and ceviche. The guys did a great job explaining how each was served and you can tell they take a lot of pride in their food. They also provide these great bean bag chairs and tables right on the sand overlooking the water. They put together a different playlist of music everyday and post it on their Facebook page in case you want to check it out later. What more could you ask for? We stopped and talked to the guys each day and they would tell you all about the menus and let you try different creations they were working on. These guys know the island exceptionally well and gave some great advice on dive sites and activities to check out. I HIGHLY recommend you eat early in your trip because you will return several times before you leave! Check out their Facebook page as well for updates on their daily menus and music. They also post some amazing pics of the island. Don't miss out Kite City!

“good food, good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

located on a beach near the airport this Food truck provides great fresh fish (caught that morning) prepared either as sashimi or cooked. delicous food served by nice people. their prices are reasonable but do not expect to get a cheap meal just because they are cooking in a food truck (you pay for quality). We ate here a large number of times between dives and found each visit to be a joy.

“Great fresh food with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Within the week that we were in Bonaire, my family and I visited this food truck 4 times and were never disappointed. By the end of the week the men working the truck knew what we wanted and made our fish platters with what we liked and remembered to bring my brother his curry ketchup for their fantastic fries. The last 3 visits we had them make us a large fish platter to share with whatever the catch was that day and it was all fantastic, yesterday we ordered as the fisherman was delivered the fish we were about to eat!
Service was great but is not a fast meal despite it being a food truck so be patient and enjoy the view. They serve their food on nice plates to you while you sit on their beanbags at the beach by tables watching the ocean, it serves as a very nice break between dives.
Overall I would highly recommend eating here and I know that on my next trip down to Bonaire, eating here will be one of the first things I do!

“Excellent food in an amazing enviroment!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

A great place to hang out, with excellent food, relaxed music and enthousiastic staff. Especially worth mentioning: the wahoo ceviche and sashimi prepared by chef Jasper. Imagine this, combined with fresh watermelon juice, a white sandy beach, and a beautiful sunset, and it is enjoying paradise to the max.

I can only say: don't miss Kite City when you visit Bonaire!
