Meet the owners
The duo is well known on the island with a broad hospitality history. Louis came to Bonaire in 2012, never really a studious person, he started working at a very young age and took on every job, busy from early morning till late at night. On the island he started working at Spice Beach Club and later Sebastian’s Restaurant, when he took a hospitality break and worked at Digicel and in the construction sector. But Louis was pulled back into hospitality and helped out at Hillside and finally ended up as a co-owner of The Dock restaurant.
Frank, who came to the island in 2013, met Louis on his second day on island at the bar of Spice and the two later became neighbors and friends. Frank never liked school and even though he successfully finished a study to “ensure” good job opportunities in his future, he always wanted to become a cook and did so.
On Bonaire he started up the kitchen of Cuba Compagnie, worked at the restaurant, At Sea, on Curacao at the Madero Beach Club, followed up again on Bonaire with Hillside and finally united with Louis, friend and business partner at The Dock.
