The food and service at Wil's is one of the best on the island. The owners are very friendly and come to your table and chat and make an effort to get to know their guests. The food, of course, is phenomenal! I tried the red curry shrimp this year and was not disappointed. Make sure to take home their... More

We first visited Wil's on our 2nd trip to Bonaire in 2013. We fell in love with the food and visited two nights in a row. We missed them on our third trip, as they were taking their vacation. When we once again returned for our 4th Bonaire week, we quickly made our way to Wil's - and were rewarded... More

It was a great evening with the best food on Bonaire. The appertizer cheesecake with shrimp and chorizo was divine, the best tuna in town as maincourse and the finish with Wil's surprise makes my dinner fantastic. Thanks again for the great time!!

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
