While staying on vacation, we used trip advisor to check out some restaurants. As The Wine Cellar rates at the top, it was a must do.....we were not disappointed. We set out on a thursday night, and arrived at 7pm, with no reservation (I would suggest you make one however). I started the evening with the lobster bisque, which has... More

We were a family of four members who recently dined at The Wine Cellar for lunch. We were initially given the tourist menu, but knew to order the chef's surprise menu, as well as some wine. We were very satisfied with the experience. The owner took time to say hello, and we also had a chance to chat with the... More

Supposed to be #1. Not into our estimate. Food is good. Some dishes are excellent. But ambience is really very mediocre. Location is below standard.

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

We had dinner on a Tuesday night in this restaurant. The quality is always good and the restaurant has still the same 'classic' food and atmosphere. I couldn't resist the Crèpe Suzette. Really love it. Friendly service.

What can I say but one of the best island meals ever eaten. The food was cooked to perfection. This place is a must do. The owner greets you with a smile and made you feel at home. Good portions of food. Like I said fabulous. Hey I just tell it like it is.

Once you find this place, you are in for a treat. Family run since 1970, the style and atmosphere is a little old fashioned - but in a good way. The food also comprises old favourites, but they are cooked with such skill and experience that every dish just sings and is absolutely delicious- from the stuffed mushroom starter to... More
