This was rated number 1 by TripAdvisor and rightfully so. We ate here our first evening in Curacao - and it was an incredible dining experience. The owners - the Cornelisse family - bent over backwards to make us feel incredibly welcomed. Nico greeted us shortly after we were seated and welcomed us, 2 of his sons also stopped by... More

We were looking for a good restaurant and this is obviously a recommended one in Willemstad. We checked out the menu and initially weren't going to go because it seemed like a typical french restaurant menu, BUT that is wrong. The food is way better than the descriptions on the menu, which don't do the food justice. The mushrooms with... More

I ate in many different restaurants during my stay in Curacao, and I can say that this one was/is the best on the whole island! The food is absolutely delicious; I had escargot and duck brest, and they were amazing! They have also some very interesting wines! Compared to other places in Curacao, this place can be considered a bit... More

We chose this restaurant, based on TA reviews, for my 40th birthday dinner. Along with some wine, I had the lobster bisque and the chateaubriand. Both dishes were good but not what I would call outstanding. What really stood out at this restaurant was the level of service. The owner and sons came by our table to meet and greet... More

We went to Curacao for our honeymoon and our favorite restaurant was The Wine Cellar. We received great service and spectacular food. The meals are incredibly flavorful and of high quality. We recommend getting the three course menu which was well worth the money. Definitely check out this restaurant while on the island.

We came for dinner at the behest of my better half and her desire to visit one of the better rated french restaurants on the island. We weren't long in discovering why it's one of the better reviewed. The food was exceptional; we enjoyed the 3 course menu recommended by the owner when he stopped by our table to say... More

We went here because of all of the great reviews we read on here and the restaurant was fantastic! The food was amazing and staff was very friendly. We wish we would have gone here earlier on our trip because we definitely would have gone back if we had an extra day. You will be missing out if you don't... More

Girlfriend and I were here last December, we were treated with exceptional service and excellent cuisine. The owner is courteous, welcoming and social. He is assisted by his sons, who will cater to your every need. A must is the tuna carpaccio and the cheese stuffed mushrooms. As a main dish I had poached Norwegian salmon and my girlfriend had...

They picked us up from our hotel and helped us celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. Great time and great food.
