Worth EVERY penny!

The chef formerly worked in NY at the Waldorf and it is evident in the preparation and presentation of the dinner entree. The restaurant atmosphere is semi -romantic and the chef takes his food seriously. We tried the freshly caught Barracuda for the first time in fish tacos and it was delicious... read more

Wil and his wife were running the restaurant with one other server. Very personable service. Wil came out to check on our meal personally. Great shrimp salad. Conch fritters were also excellent. Fantastic margarita. Overall great food and good value with excellent service.

We have had dinner quite a few times at this great garden restaurant. It is not located on the sea side but the garden is very romantic and has little pretty lights. Our son catches lion fish and once cleaned we asked Wil to prepare them for us. What a great idea this was! Lightly battered with sone veggies and... More

This restaurant is not right on the shore, but worth going! The staff was great and the menu too. The choice isn't huge but tasty and also good for vegetarians. I would go there again!

We chose this place with our group. All we heard about was the smoked marlin which was excellent. We had a large group not a problem for this place. Bring bug spray because you are outside. For apps our table had the Pork Taco's, Mushrooms and Marlin, which they smoke there. The tacos had a little too much BBQ sauce... More

The food and service at Wil's was absolutely wonderful. Everything we ordered from drinks and appetizers to desserts and coffee were well prepared , tasted delicious and were professionally served. I brought home some of the specially blended rubs and sauces that the chef prepares to be able to continue enjoying the taste.

Excellent food but wish there were a couple more fish selections. Chef Will greeted the table and even took our order (we ate early when there wasn't a crowd). The bread was out of this world and he should open for lunch serving sandwiches. Appetizer, entree and dessert were all great. Crab mac and cheese was really good but extremely... More

There's no questioning the quality and taste of the food here; it is delicious. The portions are decent by Bonaire standards, but like Bonaire standards for the nicer restaurants, on the small side. The problem is the service...hardly the "always smiling and cheerful" nature that manifests, again, most of the nicer restaurants. I guess if I can get the same... More

Great food - very well prepared and seasoned. Attention from the Chef was the best part. He came out - saw that I only ate about a third (that's all I ever eat) and was honestly concerned that it was the food. I explained but his honest concern was refreshing.

My husband & I dined here on a recent trip to Bonaire. The staff at Bellafonte Hotel recommended this restaurant to us on one of the evenings. We were seated in a beautiful courtyard were the evening just felt magical. The food was delicious, just caught that afternoon & the service was perfect.
