Restaurant At Sea Bonaire Reviews
Elegant, luxury restaurant in Kralendijk, Bonaire Apr 20, 2012
This restaurant is a little outside of the town center of Kralendijk, at a beautiful and pleasant location along Kaya Hellmund, just southy of the Cruise terminal. Eating outside is very pleasant, even though they have a (non-smoking) dining area inside as well. Outside there are low tables, three higher, bar-type of tables, and a very nice bar.
The cuisine is international with a local touch, usually with three fish suggestions as the daily catch, and quite an interesting choice of meat dishes and even vegetarian. The wine menu is great too, and even the house wines are quite good (i.e. the Pinot Grigio). The welcome is very friendly by the owners, and the staff are professional and attentive.
The carpaccio starter was a little bit lacking fantasy, however the barracuda was simply great. What is very nice is that they serve little extra's like olives, bread with lemon butter and tapenade, and a delicious amuse.
The restaurant has been chosen as nr. 1 on Bonaire based on more than 70 Tripadvisor reviews, and even though this is no more than an indication these days (Tripadvisor reviews do not seem all as honest and reliable as they once were), it is easily understandable that "At Sea" has achieved this high rank. Without reservation it is pure luck if you find a table.
The style and setting is "smartly elegant", so you should keep this in mind. It is a bit of a "higher end" restaurant, and while the atmosphere is pleasant, this is not one of the more relaxed, simple and laid back eateries of which there are so many at Bonaire.
