Vsited in August 2013, great meal and great atmosphere. The rack of Lamb was the best I have ever eaten. The menu leans toward the pricey, which tends to be true through out Curacao. The owners son spent a lot of time at our table with great conversation, really a homey touch. They offer a free shuttle service back to your hotel upon request, great to save $20 on the cab. A fine night out, just bring the big wallet!

If you're someone who is typically skeptical of restaurants with stellar reviews, then fear not, The Wine Cellar will not disappoint.

Anton, one of the owners, made this culinary experience memorable from start to finish. It certainly was a treat to receive personalized attention from Anton, learning both about our food and the history of his family's restaurant.

The duck liver pâté appetizer is sinful and delicious. Just when I thought nothing in the world could be more amazing, the beef tenderloin topped with foie gras rocked my world with every bite. I typically enjoy sharing with my wife, but it's hard to let go of even a tiny morsel when each one is so cherished.

Crêpes Suzette prepared table side concluded our magnificent meal, perhaps the best we've ever enjoyed. Our standard of culinary excellence has been raised to a new level, thanks to Anton and his entire staff.

Most comfortable and relaxed atmosphere from all of the places we went during our vacation. Great place for couples and special occasions (so try to change out of your beachwear). After dinner, we were pleasantly surprised that an employee escorted us to our car.

Highly recommend as other places tended to miss on at least one mark. Five of us, with wine and dessert, came to $221.

The good:
- very attentive, friendly service
- intimate atmosphere ( collections of paintings on wall, ranging from hotel room watercolours to interesting impressionists )
- we all had fish, grilled to perfection, moist and juicy. Vegetables were fresh and crunchy

The bad
- a tad overpriced

Went toThe Wine Cellar to celebrate my 50th Birthday with friends. One of the best meals ever!!! Had to say it the the highlight of our trip to Curacao. Travelled with my husband and 2 other couples. Excellent host/owner who will pick you up and drop you at your hotel. Our waitress was great.
