Phone: (00599) 717-1684

Since we first envisioned “Ingridients” we wanted it to be different, to be far from clichés and common places, we wanted it to be unique and personal, like us, like you. We’ve been in the tourism industry for decades; and in that time we’ve had the chance of visiting hundreds of restaurants, but only a handful of them did earn a place in our minds and hearts. Our food is based on the Mediterranean cuisine and uses the basic principles of the French, Spanish and Italian cuisine. Next to that we use our local produce and serve all this next to the magical blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. We wanted to create a space of comfort and luxury, of fresh elegance; a place for you to dine different. We tried to put our personal experience in everything, from the food, the decoration, and yes, the name. Hopefully we’ll earn a place in your good memories. That’s it, this is us, this is Ingridients, this is our home, please let it be your home as well. Enjoy!

Welcome at Cuba Compagnie on Bonaire!

The friendliness of the people, the warm atmosphere, erotic dancing, the stirring music, the beautiful buildings and the special cars have had Cuba stealing our hearts during the holidays that we celebrated on the largest of all Caribbean islands. We wanted to let the atmspheres of Cuba come back in our venue on Bonaire, so the people would feel at home right away. We are proud that we succeeded in doing that, measured by the reactions of our guests! In Cuba you still find very little smartphones, tablets and laptops today, so people are really engaged with each other and not with their phones. Luckily also at Cuba Compagnie Bonaire we see very few people more liking Facebook than the views on the beautiful Caribbean Sea in our front yard. We see that Cuba Compagnie is a place to meet, to talk, to laugh and to dance. Celebrating life in Cuba is rule number one, and so it is with us at Cuba Compagnie: VIVA CUBA!!
