Had only an app and entree however both were more that expected for the island. Usually the food is ok at best in the restaurants in town but this place served very good fresh seafood well prepared in a friendly place. The Shrimp curry was excellent Shrimp perfectly cooked and the rice served with the dish was also perfect. This... More

Really nice meal at Wils. We ate out every night in Kralendijk and thought Wils was the pick of the bunch.

We have been travelling to Bonaire for many years and always have dinner at Wil's restaurant at least twice... We call it Sue and Wil's as Sue is the secret engine behind the place. Wil is the back office and Sue the front office :-) The fresh fish is the best, but being on an island where the fishermen only... More

We loved Wil's so much that we dined here twice during our two week stay. We first learned about Wil's when it was enthusiastically recommended by a couple we met on one of our early boat dives. Before making the first reservation I read reviews and decided it was worth a visit. We were warmly greeted by Sue upon arrival... More

We had been trying to get to Wil's based on Tripadvisor reviews, but with no website, no facebook page, and we didn't have a local phone, it was impossible to make a reservation. We kept stopping by but it seemed that every other day the restaurant was closed. Our very last night, we finally found it open and of course... More

Ate here earlier this week and was lucky enough to have lion fish ceviche on the menu. Great take on the dish by this place and probably the best i've ever had. After that I had the squash soup and the seared tuna- both were great and would recommend. This place doesn't play it safe with ingredients and applies a... More

I'll keep this short. I am picky when it comes to dining. Will's was hands down the best we had in Bonaire. We found several others that were good. Several that were mediocre and one that was bad. In our 10 days on the islands, eating out for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Will's was hands down, the best. Excellent chef... More

This was our favorite place to eat on the whole Island. The smoked blue marlin is legendary. You miss something if didn't try it. Wil is a chef by heart and you taste it. He worked in many top places before and he really loves food. We felt not as guests but as old friends. Sue and Wil had both... More

This restaurant had excellent service and top quality food. I highly recommend the smoked Marlin. I guarantee you haven't had anything like it. Not to be likened to smoked salmon. They smoke it themselves. They also serve very interesting and tasty drinks. My favorite was the Carribean Cowboy. Yummy! I had 3. My favorite dish there was the Red Snapper.... More
