It improves with every visit ! The food is creatively prepared by Wil. What a chef! This time, we had appetisers of marinated mushrooms, sounds pretty ordinary, but 'wow', they were fabulous. If they are on the menu when you go, try them. We also had the smoked marlin starter, which is a standard at Wil's, then wahoo with salsa.... More

Wil and his wife Sue let every time we visit the restaurant surprise us. today our favourite entree was the home smoked Blue Marlin and the Steamed Buns. The maincourse with the fresh seared Tuna with Asian Veggie Salad kept our mouth melting. the dessert Wil's surprise is the best part at the end of a wonderfull experience.

It was the first time that we visited Will's Restaurant and it was a very nice experience. All the appetizers were delicious especially the steamed buns. Really wanted to try their smoked marlin but they didn't have it at the time. That means another visit is a must.

This restaurant is phenomenal. The meals are carefully thoughout, very tasty, and beautifully presented. Since Bonaire is an island, the menu changes based on what is available that Wil wants/can prepare. Our trip included an Old Amsterdam cheese course that was unbelievable (if you're a cheese aficionado). His take on hummus includes dukka, a spice I'd not heard of before,... More

The wife of the chef was a wonderful host and all her staff very attentive. She was great in helping us choose a wonderfully prepared meal and suggestion wine to go with it. Recommend reservations or going very early. Attention to every detail down to providing mosquito deterrent as needed. Such a nice location, outdoors but somewhat private from street... More

The chef makes great, thoughtful dishes. Menu varies depending on what is fresh and available. The smoked marlin and blue cheese/spinach dip appetizers were delicious. Was pretty expensive for what you get, but that seems to be pretty typical for Bonaire.

My wife & I returned for another meal a Wil's while diving in Bonaire. We've been here other times & Wil's is consistently very good. The menu is somewhat limited, but still very good. The wine list is pretty good, but limited. The apps were good & we enjoyed a nice black olive & tomato tapenade. I had a beef... More

Rain forced our dining experience inside but the ambiance and food were exceptional nonetheless. A must do on any trip to Bonaire.

When you find a great place to eat like this on Bonaire, it's a rarity and should be recognized. Fantastic service, atmosphere, food (all the way around), and value. I will definitely come here again. And again.
