Been coming here for years and the food never disappoints. The menu is different but amazing. If you like to try unique dishes I highly recommend eating here. I had the Cesar salad and shrimp raviolis.

My husband and I are vacationing in Aruba. We decided to try Wilhelmina’s based on a recommendation from our hotel. From the moment we arrived everyone was welcoming and helpful. The outdoor area is lush with plantings and makes you feel relaxed. The wait staff...are attentive and friendly. The food selection was very good. We both had local fish that was prepared differently. We loved the meal and would highly recommend giving Wilhelmina’s a try.More

It was our first time at Wilhelmina and we will be back. Food and service were both excellent. Highly recommend requesting a table in the garden – it’s a beautiful, enclosed patio. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and attentive. We loved the complimentary...“starter” of celery root soup – not something we’ve had before but it was delicious. We got the Gamberetti Pasta (good – nothing crazy) and the catch of the day (barracuda) in preparation #2 which was phenomenally prepared. This was our favorite meal in Aruba of the 4 dinner restaurants we tried.More

Okay, WOW! This is by far the best restaurant I’ve ever had in the world, let alone Aruba. The food in EXQUISITE. SO DELICIOUS. The staff is beyond kind and caring. If you come to Aruba and don’t come here, you will regret it!

First time at Wilhelmina’s and it was excellent. We dined outdoors in a beautiful enclosed patio with music playing and a nice breeze flowing. From the moment we entered the restaurant the staff was very attentive and cordial. We enjoyed a wonderful mustard soup, catch...of the day, Gambaretti pasta and an ice cream dessert that were all delicious. We will definitely be back.More

We have been going to Wilhelmina’s for a few years now to celebrate our anniversary and I cannot imagine any place better! The atmosphere is amazing with the open air indoor experience. The service is excellent with a very attentive but not intrusive wait staff....It is truly amazing how year after year the food is beyond perfect. The celery root soup, which they give you a little taste of, is fantastic, as is the lobster bisque. The shrimp ravioli is delicious and I enjoyed throughly my salad. It’s the entrees that truly make this one of, if not the best, restaurant on the island. The filet is tender enough to cut with a fork and the flavor is incredible, year after year. The catch of the day is prepared your choice of two ways. This time I had “catch-1” and was delighted with my choice. It was a beautiful piece of fish with a few shrimp on the side and the sauce was delicious. It was hard to leave without dessert so we each ordered but took most of it home. I must note that the added touch of a champagne toast to celebrate our anniversary did not go unnoticed. We cannot rave enough about Wilhelmina’s and will surely be celebrating our anniversary here again!More

We just spent six days in Aruba and had our last dinner (me and my wife) at Wilhelmina. The food was exceptional. And the ambiance was gorgeous. We loved our meal so much that when the check came, we gave our credit card and left...before we could sign (we totally forgot). I emailed the restaurant today to check in on whether my card was left there and apologized for not leaving a tip (and offered a generous one!) They wrote back right away saying that yes we did in fact leave our card there and they would destroy it. They wouldn't accept a tip and just hoped we would come back for our next visit. What a class act. An exceptional dinner and wonderful overall experience. Everyone should visit Wilhelmina!More

Exceptional food and service! From the appetizer (fish cakes) to our main courses (daily fish, Indonesian pork) to dessert (cheesecake, dame Blanche ice cream) everything was phenomenal. In addition to the exceptional food, our server Chivrano was one of the best servers we’ve experienced anywhere...in the world and we travel and eat at fine dining quite often!! What a lovely restaurant! It has moved to our top spot on Aruba fine dining!More

Dinner at Wilheminas in Aruba was superb. The atmosphere beautiful. We started with drinks, Watermelon cooler and a Tiki Royale. We shared a delicious appetizer, shrimp ravioli. I tried Gamberetti Pasta, which was similar to classic shrimp scampi but creamier and very flavorful. My husband...tried Indonesian Pork with noodles. The pork was very tender. Dessert was creme brulee for me and chocolate cake with ganache for my hubby. Our waitress and assistant were excellent. Thank you Kawitha and Dana for such a wonderful experience.More
