This restaurant is magnificent. Never have I seem such a great service in my life! The staff is always near you, making sure everything is perfect. The food is very well made and the impressive thing is that it is does not cost more than the average restaurant. They do not have a very extensive wine list as one would... More

This was the highest price we paid for a meal and the food was just above average. The interior is romantic and cozy, but there is not view. They do provide transport back to your resort which is nice. It didn't live up to the #1 ranking.

This was the best restaurant we at at in Curaçao. The Chateaubriand Bearnaise was to die for, the lamb was amazing, and the duck positively mouth-watering. Even the chicken my wife ordered, which we thought would be a nominal dish, turned out to be the best chicken any of us have ever had. Great wine pairings, too, and the crepes... More

We chose The Wine Cellar over Kome and were not disappointed with the food, the staff, the ambiance, and the wine. The owner and his sons were attentive to our needs and selected a creamy chardonnay to compliment our escargot and then a full bodied South African Syrah for our entree of tenderloin, oven roasted potatoes, asparagus, and mouth watering...

During our stay at the marriott emerald casino beach resort we had the bellman, bartender, and two cab drivers recommended the wine cellar. We ate there 4/9/14. Having traveled to numerous destinations inside the us and outside the us and having had dinner at restaurants at each I must say that the meals we had at this establishment was absolutely... More

We chose to dine here as our last, special dinner in Curacao. Our meals were fine, but definitely not on par with what we enjoyed at Kome and Batavia. They provide transportation back to your lodgings, which is convenient.

My girlfriend and I loved our memorable meal there. The owner and his sons matched the wine perfectly and catered to my vegetarian wishes. My truffle dish was fantastic. I would go back.

We picked Wine Cellar for the end-of-vacation dinner, based on very good TripAdvisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed. This is a classy place, with superb food and excellent service. Yes, it's expensive, but in my opinion, it's worth it. We paid about $100 for two appetizers and a main course, with wine, everything was just perfect, and we were so... More

After all, according to you, a three stars (average) review means it is a good restaurant. You also mentioned the very good service and the very good food for which we are grateful.... More

When we visited a second time this evening after a four year absence, The Wine Cellar maintained its reputation as a top choice dining destination. Classically elegant French-influenced selections include smaller light options, beautifully plated and formally served in an immaculate setting. The best of our choices included silky, subtly seasoned creamy pumpkin soup, a generously large appetizer of escargot,... More
