Excellent, individualized meals! Delicious fresh seafood as well as pasta and meat selections. Yummy desserts if you still have room! Healthy portions. Very friendly owners. Make a reservation as they only take a limited amount of guests per evening.

We went to this restaurant based on the trip advisor reviews. While it is in a lovely location (you go thru the building to an enclosed tree shaded courtyard for dining), the menu leaves something to be desired. It had very few choices but did have conch fritters on the menu which my husband was desiring (did not learn til... More

Food was expensive, but on par for the island. Very good cornmeal-breaded snapper ($24), but conch fritters were more like hushpuppies (5 for $12). Brazilian shrimp and coconut soup tasted like tobasco and hot sauce heated up with very little shrimp or coconut ($12). BEWARE: the most mosquitoes that I've seen in one spot on the island were in this... More

Been coming for years and it is still the best fine dining on Bonaire. Will and Sue are the best and it shows in their food. Treat yourself!

Four of us enjoyed every course this evening. Wil's skill in the kitchen continues to amaze us with every visit. The service is excellent and we will return soon.

We went with a large group on a Tuesday night. The group ordered many different dishes from Mini Ravioli to Shrimp Special to Beef Tenderloin. The Mini Ravioli was in a pesto cream sauce with broccoli and chicken; wow, you talk about tasty, I'd love to have a second helping right now. The shrimp were good but messy to eat,... More

On a return trip to Bonaire, my wife and I had a chance to eat at Wil's again. We ate in the small courtyard, which allowed a nice breeze and a cozy atmosphere. We began with house-smoked marlin. What a delight. I could have had another order of that and called it a night. The rest of the menu had... More

We were a group of six. Our service was wonderful and friendly. The food was excellent and served and plated in a pleasing manner. Wil's specialty - smoked marlin - was wonderful. Everyone should try it. Our meals were good and we ordered two of his dessert surprises. Oh my, to die for - 4 or 5 tasters of delicious... More

This is our fifth visit to Bonaire and our fifth visit to Wil's Restaurant. This place never fails to exceed our expectations... How can they one up themselves every year?

Wil's is a place we come back to every visit to Bonaire. Sue and Wil are always friendly and go out of their way to make our dinner special.
