Fine Italian fare, made-to-order freshness, superb presentation with a celebrated wine selection -that’s Capriccio in Bonaire. This premier, seaside restaurant located just outside town is a must on every Italian connoisseur’s list.
Before visiting the island you can view their many finely made lunch and dinner menu options by checking out their website. Capriccio’s bread, pasta, ice cream and desserts all are homemade and delicious. They serve many distinctly Italian dishes, some with an added Bonaire flair. You will also find many salad and pizza choices..
Their amazing wine selection, also available to view online, has been honored by Wine Spectator Magazine for many years.
Capriccio is owned by a husband and wife team, both born in Italy. Husband, Andrea Magni was the youngest chef in Italy to get a Michelin Star. Wife Lorella Lucia Scandaletti, after working for some of the most prestigious restaurants in Los Angeles, returned to her native Italy. Their first vacation was to the island of Bonaire, and now it is their dream and home … and all of us get to enjoy their dream with them.
After dinner, stroll down town along the water front, all the while enjoying the Bonaire breeze
We find an advanced reservation is always a smart choice.
Ingridients Restaurant, located in the Buddy Dive Resort is a treat for all Bonaire visitors. We enjoy everything about Ingridients – the food, the view, the atmosphere, the service – just absolutely wonderful. The restaurant overlooks the sea with a breathtaking view of the sunset.
And yes, that is spelled correctly, the restaurant was named for its owner, Ingrid.
As posted on their website, Ingridients uses locally produced fresh ingredients with dishes inherent to the Mediterranean cuisine, using the basic principles of French, Spanish and Italian cooking. Their chefs are constantly experimenting with new flavors and texture combinations by selecting only the freshest seasonal produce. Their menu changes seasonally with many daily specials.
We enjoy dining with the entire family at Ingridients Restaurant.
Located in the Buddy Dive resort, directly adjacent to the Buddy Dive bar and restaurant, affords a lot of flexibility. Our children are older, and at times have decided to visit the more relaxed restaurant at Buddy Dive while Steve & I enjoy a couples evening. Buddy Dive has a great bar with a fantastic daily happy hour. The 5 of us enjoy cocktails and mocktails. The kids stay and enjoy the restaurant and pool while Steve and I walk over to the finer dining experience offered a few feet away.
