Some delicately prepared and creatively presented food in an island not so well known for high end cooking. The beef served chateaubriand style and graced by a light bearnaise was exquisite. Wines are evidently hard to acquire in Curacao, and the listing was somewhat spare. Almost seemed to be missing a page it was so light in the California reds,... More

The food was fantastic. Grouper was fresh and prepared perfectly. Stuffed mushrooms are to die for. The place is small and looks like someone's house. Make reservations, this place is well known by the locals and the hotels recommend it.

We both enjoyed the Wine Cellar very much. Nico, the owner and Chef, really makes you feel welcome as does the rest of the staff. The most important part about any restaurant is the food of course and the Wine Cellar will certainly please even the most discriminating palate. We travel all over the world and know great food and... More

My family has taken me to the Wine Celler in previous years and we always had a great time. This year the service was very poor. Our wine glasses were empty for long periods of time and no one came to the table to ask if we needed or wanted anything. The absence of Nico and Anton was felt by... More

Thank you Judi for your review. I am looking into the matter, which is very serious to us, but wish you could let me know the day of your visit, by email, to see who of the staff was absent, and to learn why your glasses stayed empty that night. Indeed, I sometimes, for other commitments, cannot be present, but... More

We had the pleasure of dining at the Wine Cellar on 1/5/15. All four of our appetizers and meals were outstanding. Best meal during our 8 day vacation! The service from this family run business was friendly and attentive and the food was delicious! Nice wine list too. Great meal. A "must-do" when visiting beautiful Curacao.

Has been one of my favorite restaurants but very disturbing that menu say taxes included but 9% tax is added on to bill. Prices have increased considerably. Never expected this from the owners.

Thank you for your review and we do appreciate your concern on the sales-tax issue. The fact is that the menu clearly states that prices exclude 9% sales tax, but indeed the wine-list does include the 9% sales-tax. So on your bill the menu items have the same price, but a bottle of wine, say for $50, will be listed... More

This family run restaurant is by far the best meal you will find while in Curacao...if not all of the Caribbean. We are foodies from New York and found everything about this establishment flawless. So much so we went back on our final night for a second round. We ordered pretty much exactly the same dishes and again we had... More

My husband and I have been here several times during our visits to Curaçao and I must say, they exceed my expectations every time we return. We were able to get a reservation for our group of 4 on New Years Eve and were very graciously welcomed by various staff members despite the fact that were entirely full and thus... More
