Excelent service!! Super nice waitress and owners! Great food at a sophisticated and cozy ambiance. All dishes were delicious, perfectly prepared and super well presented. BEST mojito we had on the island. Fair price!

Went here with our party of 7 people. They were ready for us and knew who we were when we arrived. The table was set beautifully, and the atmosphere was both luxurious and comfortable. We received wonderful, friendly, and attentive service all night long from several different staff members. Wine and food recommendations were spot on, and our waiter even... More

On our last night in Curacao, we decided to go out for an elegant, romantic dinner at the Wine Cellar. WOW! the food was amazing. The service was very attentive. The proprietor came out in the middle of dinner to chat with us for a few minutes. He told us that they have been in business for 42 years. The... More

The food is superb and the service outstanding. We went twice in a week. The fishes and the shrimps worth the visit. There is also a nice wine list. Not too expensive for the food and service delivered. It exceeded our espectations.

We stayed in Curacao for a dive trip. Wanting to celebrate our trip on the last night, we chose The Wine Cellar. The evening exceeded our expectations. The Sole and the Filet Chateaubriand were superb and the wine selection is very nice. Yes, the meal was one of the best ever! It was met with a great atmosphere, service, and... More

This place was recommended by our hotel. Food was good but expensive. Quiet setting. Small place. Pretty formal dining.

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
