Family owned romantic restaurant. Food amazing! Don't waste your time. Eat there first because you may want to go twice.

we went to dinner at The Wine Cellar in August 2015. The food at the restaurant was excellent. We had the lamb, salmon, steak and duck. Each entree was better than the last. But the special feature of this place is Nico the owner , his sons and the staff. Nico arrived at the restaurant while we were waiting for... More

We ate the lamb, scallops, and lobster bisque. It was all very tasty! Service was great. Best dinner we had while in Curacao. Would definitely go back.

While looking for a place to eat after arriving in Willemstad the first night, I found The Wine Cellar. Especially after Cuba, I cannot praise the food enough. The complimentary fresh baked bread with salted butter was a delight to start with, while waiting for the filled mushrooms and the cheesecake, both so good you are lost for words. Is... More

But in the end we tried... More

The staff was attentive and friendly, We had the scallops as an appetizer which we would recommend and the salads as well. Dinners we had the duck and the lamb which were both excellent choices. The deserts you could pick any one of them and you won't go wrong. The Crepes Suzette were made table side and were delicious.

First off: this restaurant delivers good quality service and good quality food! The service does depend heavily on the owner and his sons, the other waiters are of a far lower standard. The food tastes excellent! I had a steak which practically melted on my tongue.. And good wine pairing as well! My grump, passed on to one of the... More
