We enjoyed our dinner at Julian's. They have a limited menu with a fixed price. We got the Mahi mahi and the Shrimp alfredo, and both were very tasty. I thought the fish was simple, but exceptionally good, especially for the price, which also includes a drink and dessert! Compared to many other pricey dinner options around town, we were... More

This was our favorite place to eat hands down. The food is good and is the best value we found. The ocean view cafe offers 8 tables that are almost always full, but they are very good at moving people through so the longest we waited was about 20 minutes. The menu is simple and small, but there are enough... More

Having a low budget when traveling is quite common. Julian's offers a $11 lunch option that includes a meal, drink and desserts. You can choose between different mains and the dessert depends on the day. All in all, it was all very delicious while having an excellent view on the crystal clear water in front of you.

A small standard menu, for a single price. Lots of local folks, good food, good service. The fish sandwich was very good after a morning of diving.

We visited Julian's following a recommendation by Bonaire's native islanders. We were impressed. Small, open air and unpretentious terrasse. One price menu at 11.00 for a non alchoolic beverage, entree and desert. We sampled the mahi mahi and garlic shrimps. Superb! Cooked to perfection, simply presented with salad and rice, and supported by a tasty but not overwhelming sauce. Familial... More

Although Julian's has a limited menu, you will not leave hungry! The service was excellent (Julian's brother was amazing and pleasant!). Large quantities with a good variety (steak, fish, shrimp, or pasta). Dinner included the meal, salad, a soft drink, and dessert for a low fixed price. Beer and wine are also available. They are not open daily, so be... More

The same menu for lunch and dinner (but with different desserts) but it is good simple food, excellently prepared (they are also the kitchen for the up-market and much pricier restaurant of the other side of the road). The staff are very friendly and the service was both prompt and efficient. We chose the fresh fish every time!!

They were out of shrimp pasta due to a shipment that did not come in for the pasta. I saw it a few days before... More

Greeted by the owner with: Familia! Small place with a small menu. Open air restaurant. No pretense, just laid back. To my surprise he remembered how my friend wanted her plate; more salad and less fries. The grilled garlic scrimp was delicious, the fries was hot and fresh, the salad was refreshing. If you want to eat cheap and clean,... More

The owners are warm and friendly and have a nice assortment of food for daily specials. The fish off the boat were being carried by us to the kitchen. Can't beat the price on the daily specials.
