With friends some of the specials tried an absolute NOT disappointed. Scrimps, Wahoo, veggie and desert were all great! good wines, with super food! After our last visit(5 years ago) we were very pleased that Will has not forgotten how to cook, laugh and be present. Good local food is served in a nice surrounding . Another great dinner.

After hearing good things about Wil's we made an early dinner reservation and were glad that we did! The menu is short, but had fantastic food. Wil's is tucked in downtown Kralendijk - but it has an open air seating area. We will definitely return on our next trip!!

We had a lovely meal here during our March 2015 visit to Bonaire. This family run operation has all the makings of a labor of love. The food is carefully prepared by Will and his wife Sue works the floor. The menu changes and we were lucky to catch a night with lots of vegetarian options, but Sue assured us... More

Ate dinner at Wil's last night and had a delicious meal. The setting was very nice. Making reservations was very easy on line with a quick response. Sue and Wil were engaging and pleasant. Service was good. Both of us had appetizers and fish dinners which were delicious. The drinks and dessert yummy. Will definitely be back when return to... More

Has access to the same (limited) ingredients as everyone else, but does a little more with them. Being a chef is obviously Wil's metier, rather than being simply a job. He's knowledgeable, au courant, and passionate about what he's doing. His wife runs the front of the house; the two are friendly and engaging. Beautiful space in sort of a... More

We try to spread ourselves around when on vacation but we had to go here twice. It is great. Nice atmosphere and main service is by the owners. Excellent kitchen with well prepared well balanced menu always evolving. Good wine list too. Note all tables are outdoor in a nice courtyard which we liked. Prices comparable with those on the...

The restaurants are all working with the same limited ingredients on Bonaire. This guy takes things to a higher level than the rest. The taste of his food proves the time and attention he's putting into the work. He's doing things like smoking fish for a week to get it just right. Amazing effort and impressive results. Don't miss Wil's.

As usual Wil’s was very good. We popped in without a reservation and were able to get a table (when we tried this on a latter visit they were full). Sue, Wil’s wife and hostess, was not there as she was running a booth at a special event in the square. I though the service was not quite as sharp... More

We recently went for dinner at Wil's as we really like the atmosphere of the place. The service was overall very good, the starters were very nice, but one of us ordered the pork loin wrapped in bacon which came charred on the sides and raw in the centre. It was inedible! When Wil toured the tables to check on... More
