It’s hard to believe that it has been fifteen years since It Rains Fishes opened its door in a historic Bonairean home on the oceanfront promenade. The restaurant made their mark on Bonaire cuisine early in their first days, and they haven’t stopped innovating since that time.
The restaurant has gotten a few tweaks in recent months and now is sporting a chic new image. Their fish market has been expanded and now includes local fishes, international fishes, and Dutch fishes. And the best part of the anniversary celebration is the new menu!
Presented like a newspaper, the extensive menu offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as a surprising amount of libations for at the bar or your table.
Just new are the daily specials, where each day offers a new insight into the wealth of meals and beverages which the restaurant can deliver. Tuesdays are now Create Your Own Pasta where you can pick all your own components–meat, fish, chicken, seafood–and then choose your pasta and your vegetables to go with it. There’s a blackboard showing all the different choices, so it’s easy to get exactly what you want!
Wednesdays highlight Dutch fresh fishes, also chosen at the blackboard to show what is available. Thursdays is seafood once again, focusing upon international and local fishes. It’s certainly raining fishes on these days!
Fridays and Saturdays are the days to cozy up to the bar, sit yourself down, and delve into some of the new creations, such as the Fishes Kiss or Teki Loco, but of course, all your favorites, including the classic Martini–shaken OR stirred–can be enjoyed as well.
So, if you haven’t enjoyed a meal at It Rains Fishes in awhile, it’s definitely time to remedy that and taste-test the new menu. To make a reservation, visit their web site by clicking here. (Source: It Rains Fishes Restaurant Bar)
