Bambu, Kralendijk, Bonaire

17 Kaya C.E.B. Hellmund
Tel: 599 717 4166's insider take:

Local gastronomes seek out this breezy bistro beside Bonaire's South Pier. Though the port-red colonial-era home is decorated with a mash-up of African and Asian artwork and urns, the food is French-Belgian. Don't miss the salad of bacon-wrapped Bonairean goat cheese with walnuts, tomatoes, and a mild honey dressing; micron-thin slices of tuna carpaccio with asparagus and vanilla sauce; or pan-fried grouper filet with a tomato-and-wine sauce Duglere. With just 60 al fresco seats, reservations are a must, even on weeknights.

Open Wednesday through Monday 5 to 10 pm.
