Excellent Food

We visited based on the high TripAdvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. The wine list was quite varied, both in origin and in price. We saw wines from US$45 to US$900. Can't speak to the upper end of this range, but our US$80 bottle of Bordeaux was very pleasant. Food selection was... read more

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner last week at The Wine Cellar. The owner, Nico was very friendly and the staff was extremely attentive. The server offered us a suggestion on a bottle of wine which was really great! I had the salmon and the owner was able to communicate my gluten allergy to the kitchen. My husband had the tenderloin... More

We sampled quite a few restaurants in Curacao -- including Fishalicious (also very good) and the Baoase Culinary Beach Restaurant (inventive; small plates) -- but the Wine Cellar was definitely the best meal, and overall dining experience, that we had on the island. We had the tuna carpaccio and stuffed mushroom appetizers, and the jumbo shrimp main course -- all... More

Decided to try this restaurant based on the reviews. The restaurant was a nice walk from where we were staying. The food was very good but drinks are very expensive. A gentleman from the restaurant offered to walk us home which we though was a little odd. Would maybe come to this restaurant on future trips but was one of... More

Based on the reviews we decided to try this restaurant one of the evenings we were on the island. Between the four of us we had the filet mignon, wild salmon, and the truffle pasta. All were wonderfully prepared. I would certainly recommend this restaurant (you will need a reservation)--be warned that drinks are extremely expensive tho.

A wonderful french restaurant, a must go to when you are in Curacao. We had a great meal. Anton made us an excellent 4 course meal that was fabulous. Everything we had was delicious. Anton and his Father were wonderful and took good care of us, very friendly. Great staff.

Had a fabulous dinner here. The tuna appetizer, the garden salad, the salmon. The staff (owner, family & others) were wonderful. Terrific wine selection. And then the desserts - small but perfect! It was so wonderful, we went back later in the week.

I read many reviews and decided to go here for our anniversary dinner. I definitely made the right choice. It was a really nice evening for us. The food, service, decoration, and ambience was all very good - OK, Excellent then. It's not a large place but I don't usually like large places. My wife and I had a cozy... More

If you ever visit Curacao don't miss The Wine Cellar. Rated #1 but should be even higher. We had many outstanding meals in Curacao but this blows the rest away.
