Best Food on Bonaire

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... read more

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

Make a reservation! Wil and his wife Susan serve up a very tasty meal in an intimate setting. Their craft cocktails were also fantastic. Service is attentive. This is one of the better restaurants in Bonaire. (As with any outdoor dining in Bonaire, bring mosquito repellent.)

Wil's was recommended to us by others attending the same conference last week. These folks had been to the island for many years and considered Wil's one of the best. Not disappointed. I don't understand some of the other reviewer comments. Our experience was excellent! We were greeted kindly and seated outside. The staff brought mosquito repellant to the table... More

Not on the beach, so there is not much of view. Seating is outside when the weather is good, but tables are moved inside if needed. Well prepared with often a continental twist to the sauces and presentation. The outside seating has high walls, so there is no breeze and like all outside dining with no breeze you should be...

We had heard that Will's was great so we tried it. Well... a bit off a disappointment. The personnel was not very helpful and interested, the setting was not very nice. There was a strong smell off mosquito coils and citronella candles. The prices were very compared to what they served. Also the wine was $8,-- for a small glass.... More

Wil's is off the water where all the new restauranrs are building but a real gem. We ate here in 2008 and I believe they maintained their consistently. The seared tuna salad had a zippy dressing and yummy. The Mahi our friends ate had a creatuve sauce. Great prices for fresh fish. Keep up the good work!!
