As everyone else has said, the food is excellent and the hosts are incredibly generous. We were on the Caribbean Princess and had stopped on Curacao for the day. My husband and I had decided we wanted to have a special dinner off the ship one night, and we couldn't have been more pleased. After the meal was over, the owner of the restaurant actually drove us back to the port so we didn't have to pay a taxi. On the way he gave us a quick tour of some of the historical areas of the island. If we return to Curacao, we'll definitely get reservations for the Wine Cellar.

Twice we dined at The Wine Cellar and it was definitely worth it. The food was excellent both times and we got fantastic service from the owners as well as staff. The walls are covered with wonderful art that gives you plenty to talk about over dinner. Loved it!

The food is amazing. Beef carpaccio is definitely recommended and the local fish with mango sauce is very tasty. I love the restaurant. We had a great time and therefore it's highly recommended. The staff is very friendly as well. Keep up the good work guys!!!!

We had a wonderful valentines dinner at The Wine Cellar. The owner, his son, and two waitresses made sure things were moving and we were taken care of throughout the meal. They bent over backwards as I was allergic to fish and am not a lover of goose pate, their appetizer options for this special valentines meal. Although they did not have to, they took the price off the dinner which was a full course price, and apologized profusely. Hey, I know I am difficult to feed, but this was over the top and very generous.

By the way, my wife thought the pate was great.

We then had a delicious pumpkin and sweet potato soup, lamb chop, and filet mignon. All were cooked perfectly, presented in a colorful and balanced way, and tasted excellent. Service throughout was attentive, and our water glasses after a day on/in the water were filled no less than 15 times. Then desert came, a cream cake with fresh strawberries and ice cream, just perfect.

All this at an affordable premium rate, under $100usd per person with wine.

We can't think of anything we would change (except have a boring appetizer for me?), and we are very tough graders. If you are in Curaçao and want a ine dining experience, I strongly recommend the wine cellar.

So glad that The Wine Cellar is still in operation. We ate there several years ago and had a wonderful french meal. Baguettes like the homeland, escargot was wonderful and of course had to use the bread to take care of the remaining sauce that accompanied them. The flourless chocolate cake we had for dessert was worth the additional calories. All and all a great experience. One worth repeating.
