During our week in Bonaire, we ate at Wil’s, At Sea, Appetite and Chez Madeleine. All great restaurants, but Wil’s was by far our favorite. Wil and his wife, Sue, focus on high quality food in a small, romantic setting. Only four people work there to serve about a dozen tables, including Wil and Sue. The tables are in a... More

We went to have dinner with the four of us on a Wednesday evening without reservation. We were friendly welcomed and there was a table available for us. Our order for drinks were taken quickly and the menu made us quiet for a few minutes. All dishes looked delicious. Wil came out of the kitchen to personally take our orders.... More

It is strange to rank a food cart and restaurant of this calibre both as five star but tripadvisor is a bit how is food in this class of place vs what you expect. This was not Michelin star but more in that vein. Price was good for quality level. This is the best meal we've had in to weeks... More

We had dinner at Wil's Tropical Grill, in the garden. Food is good and Wil personally makes sure that you feel at home. He is the chef, but also serves some courses or takes the order. I had his signature smoked marlin as a starter (great taste!) and we had fish as a main course, well prepared. Including wine, we... More

Very cozy, courtyard setting. Was worried about bug issues but they had it all figured out with repellants and sprays so no issues there. Great menu offerings & very accommodating to our friends that had food allergies. Wonderful signature cocktails too. Everyone in our party really enjoyed their meals here.

Great restaurant with delicious food and friendly service. Fresh fish and creative menus. Don't miss it. Use bug spray before you go if you don't want to feed the mosquitoes while you eat. That is the only draw back and not a problem if you go prepared.

Tried this restaurant for the first time this year and it will not be the last. Loved the garden setting, the attentive service and most of all the incredible food. You do have to be mindful of the mozzies - this is an outdoor site! Attention to detail in presentation and quality of ingredients sets this place apart.

This restaurant is a gem. This is a tough act to follow: amazing attention to detail that spans friendly service, delicious menu, and ambience. This is one of the best restaurants we ever came across. Professionalism and knowledge at its best. Prices are very reasonable for a world-class quality. Wishing owners further continued success!

Our group had the opportunity to sample several different restaurants while we had an extended holiday at Kralendijk, Bonaire. I was given this restaurant as a recommendation by two of my friends who had been here prior to our visit. We made it a point to make reservations and try Wil's prior to our leaving. We were a party of... More

This is a AWSOME place to eat. I was on Bonaire in 2006, 2009 and now 2 weeks ago my daughter and I were there to dive. This is one of the BEST places on Bonaire. We went back a couple of times for the brownie lava cake. Its the BEST!!!!!! You won't be disappointed at this place.
