Great place

I'm not a frequent traveler or a connoisseur but this place is a very nice one for taking the family for an special occasion. Owner is very nice and kind and keeps an eye on the staff for providing great service and better food.

The food is good, the place is nice, and it is not overpriced. One thing is certain, it will not surprise you. We order the shrimp, the duck, dove -sole and the red snnaper. All tasted good, in fair portions, but we expected more for being the #1 in Curazao. The menu itself didnt have anything appealing that made our... More

Nice cozy restaurant. I had the beef tenderloin and my boyfriend had the fish. Our food was cooked perfectly. The wine selection was good without being overbearing. The service was very professional. The food presentation was pretty. The lobster bisque soup and Cesar salad were excellent.

A very small stuffy restaurant. However, the food was fantastic and I'll admit one of the best meals I've had in the Caribbean. The service was good. The foie gras was very nice and the Angus Prime Beef 'Filet Chateaubriand Béarnaise' was amazing. We also opted for the Crepes Suzette which a must try.

We met Nico and his family while we were dining, they were gracious and thoroughly enjoying their passion for food. It reflects in the dishes, as they were all superb and perfectly presented. The service was prompt and meticulous. All in all a fantastic experience.

We dined at The Wine Cellar this past week based on TripAdvisor assessment as the best restaurant on the island of Curacao. Based on our dinner that is an understatement. We travel widely and I put the food and the service at the top of list but the time spent with us by the owner was a true highlight. The... More
