We were only here once for just happy hour. Service and drinks were good. We didn't eat while we were here, so not sure about the menu or the food, but a great view of the beach, surf and sunsets.

Ate kebabs here two years in a row. They are quite delicious, You can chose the size of your platter and the type of food on the skewers. The lamb or the prawns are the best. The view allows you to enjoy a perfect sunset.

My partner & I spent 10 days in Raro & the Sunday afternoon we spent at Wilsons was hands down the best. We were probably there for a good 4 hours & racked up a nice hefty bill but so worth it. Amazing. Atmosphere, friendly attentive staff. We sipped yummy cocktails on the beach front, watched the sunset, ate the... More

Love the Castaway film and Wilson basketball setting. We had a sampling of their skewers which were delicious. Fun to eat right on the beach in lay back island fashion.

Watch the sun go down on the beach to the sounds of classical guitar, waited on by friendly, welcoming staff.

Great location to view the sunset even on an overcast evening. Drinks could colder when served, but it was a hot night. We visited on BBQ night, food was plentiful and good, but covered in marinades, so true bbq did not come through. Watch your drinks, when we were getting our food from the buffet the waiters took our not... More

I recently enjoyed dinner and a few drinks at Wilson's Beach bar and enjoyed the amazing sunset. I also enjoyed Thursday Pizza night, which had a large variety of options, along with a cocktail off their extensive cocktail list. Highly recommended!
