This restaurant is listed on Trip Advisor as Eli’s Deli, and I have NO IDEA WHY! All of the signage says “Elle’s Deli,” so this is going to remain a mystery to me.
This is a very casual place, affordable by Bonaire standards, with sandwiches generally ranging from $10-14. The interior of the restaurant was quite hot, so we took a table outside which was shaded with a nice breeze.
I ordered the goat cheese, nuts, and honey sandwich on a whole-grain baguette.
This was very nice and light, not too filling, since I didn’t eat the whole sandwich, which was enormous! The goat cheese was fluffy and creamy, and the honey was just enough to add a subtle sweetness, without being overpowering. The sliced almonds added a nice crunch and texture. On a side note, I told the lady behind the counter that I’d like “a soda,” thinking that I’d go get a canned soda, but not wanting to decide exactly which one yet since I hadn’t seen them. When I went to the case, I chose a root beer, but she pointed out to me that this wasn’t soda water. I tried explaining that “soda” is generic in the US for “pop” or even “Coke,” but it was a funny language confusion moment.
My husband ordered the tuna melt, also on a whole wheat baguette.
He liked the bread a lot; sometimes baguettes are so hard that they can cut the inside of the mouth, but this one was soft. The tuna salad was good, not outstanding, but good. It was a nice, light meal in the midst of a lot of diving. His drink was a Bitter Lemon, which I liked the taste of very much, but which was too acidic for me to drink since we would be diving again that afternoon.
