La Barca in Bonaire - Dutch Caribbean

phelana | May 23, 2012 02:54 AM

We had a girls night out last week in Bonaire. The organizer chose La Barca, a little al fresco spot on the water in Kralendijk. We arrived early as some of the tourist ladies wanted to capture sunset. We left around 9:30 after a lovely leisurely dinner. Beside our table of 11 there was a 4 top. Services was paced slowly. With a one time serving of bread and flowing water and wine, we were content with the pace. It might be unpopular with those needing an in and out dining experience. I know the server from 3 years ago when I frequented the place. With so many great dining options I just stopped going to La Barca particularly after the young Italian owner left. Well, my mistake, the place is back to fantastic with homemade pasta and fresh fish. The house white wine was crisp and fresh. I cannot recall the name but it was not a Pinot Grigio but some white. I chose the homemade pasta with fresh mahi mahi and imported shrimp. The pasta was slightly overcooked but delicious. The fish was fresh and delectable. My bill with pasta and two white wines was 34 as I recall before tip.
