we had the best meal while we were on the island at Will's. This was my fifth trip to Bonaire, and we had not tried Will's until this trip. It will be at the top of my list on the next trip. The fish, beef and drinks were fantastic and well worth the price.

the title says it all. the food is nothing to rave about. ordered a few appetizers one main course and there was just nothing to write home about. the owners are nice. but the major problem is mosquitos. they have the mosquito coils burning, but the smell from the coils interferes with the enjoyment of the food.

We stopped in for dinner and had some great fresh food. We had dumplings as an appetizer- probably our favourite dish of the night. For mains we had fish and pork. Both were very nice. We had two great desserts as well. The atmosphere is laid back and the staff for helpful.

We discovered Wil's on our first trip to Bonaire in 2012 and ended up eating there twice because we enjoyed the food and atmosphere so much. The fried barracuda which had just been delivered by the fisherman 30 minutes before we arrived was amazing! Wil's was our first stop for dinner on the day we arrived and he didn't disappoint!...

The food was beautiful and service was exceptional. Relaxed atmosphere, well priced, great cocktails. Menu was a little limited but what we had was tasty. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend here.

This was a great find on Bonaire and like "Between two Buns" was a restaurant we had to dine at more than once during our stay. The owners - Wil & Sue make you feel like family and the menu is testament to Wil's passion for being a chef. They also make a line of hot sauces, rubs and marinades... More

We've been going to Wil's for years and it's a favorite. The menu changes frequently, depending on what's available. It's a delightful setting in an old house. Wil comes out to speak to you. The Trop Grill Margarita is the best on the island, and there are a lot of good Margarita's on Bonaire. Can't say enough good things about... More

We had no reservation, we just walked in, we were greeted and they showed us our table. The dining room is lovely. It's under a roof of trees in a cosy little garden with lot's of small lights and a wonderfull attention to details. You can tell that the owners take care of this place. We ordered a few drinks...

We ate out a lot in Bonaire and Will's was, by far, the best and most rewarding experience. Will really cares about what he cooks and it shows! We had some lovely spiced and lime soaked ceviche and yucca fries to start, accompanied by some excellent quality but reasonablybpriced white wine. His wine list is short but very well chosen...

Well after looking at the good reviews on here I decided to give Wil's a shot. I walked in and immediately had a good vibe. I didnt have a reservation and got lucky because the place doesnt seat many people.I was greeted by Sue, who is Wil's wife, and immediately ordered. There menu changes daily which is something that I... More
