While in Bonaire, If you are looking to enjoy a romantic dinner…here is my review of a fantastic restaurant offering an exceptional romantic setting. Karel’s Cappuccino is a scenic restaurant located at the edge of a pier in Kralendijk. It is a romantic setting and brings to mind the feeling of dining in the middle of the ocean.
Owner Karel J.C. Visser has three restaurants in close proximity. Karel’s Beach Bar (adjacent to Capuccino) and across the street, Zeezicht Restaurant.
I ordered a Cavazza merlot from Italy. While my dining partner ordered a goose juice (coconut rum, triple sec, pineapple and lime juice. I snuck a taste of the yummy refreshing blue fruity cocktail. We ordered a house salad and two entrees. One was the special of the evening…Mahi mahi and shrimp was prepared in a delicate garlic sauce…so fresh and delicious. Chantal Seafood kabob was exquisitely presented on a metal skewer dangling vertically. The dish sported grilled shrimp, fish, conch, onion, tomato, and bell pepper.
Although we were quite full our server insisted that we try the special dessert. The sweet sensation included strawberry ice cream topped with a fried wonton drizzled with a tart yet sweet green apple sauce. Kaya J.N.E. Craane #12, Kralendijk, Bonaire; 599 717 8434; http://www.karelsbeachbar.com/
