We spent New Years Eve at Wil's and somehow this restaurtant just keeps getting better and better. What they know, which other restaurants on the island dont, is how many tables they can handle without sacrificing service and quality. Best meal and service on the island, without a doubt. Always fresh and new. Wil is the best chef on Bonaire,... More

Wil's is absolutely outstanding! It's my first review but, trust me, take the chance and you won't be disappointed. The ambiance creates the perfect island setting and the food is to die for. My husband and I loved it and I hope you will too!

Our meal was not only good, it was creative. We ordered the drink of the day--it was called a ginger snap and invented by them--it was excellent. They smoke the marlin in house, we had the smoked marlin appetizer; it was sliced paper thin and delicious. Fettuccini shrimp was very good, packed with flavor yet delicate. We even had some...

Had Thanksgiving meal here. I had pork tenderloin and my wife had grilled wahoo. Both were excellent. But what really curled our toes was the smoked marlin appetizer. It was out of this world. Wil and his wife were wonderful to talk with. Also really enjoyed the artwork. Wear you insect repellent.

What a great find! The owner is the chef and his wife works the front room. There was a special menu for Christmas Eve. We had a wide variety of starters and everyone really enjoyed. I had the goat cheese with a honey sauce, it was delicious. Others had veal, crab muffins and house smoked blue marlin. For dinner I... More

We enjoyed our first meal at Wil's so much, we went back for a second one the following night. I am a chef, and I value quality food and service - and loved that Wil had a changing menu based on the freshest products he could get. The food was delicious. I had read reviews about the smoked marlin and... More

We recently spent a week on Bonaire and Wil's was one of the high points. Wil's has everything you expect in a quality restaurant - great food, service, atmosphere, and value. The smoked marlin appetizer and yellow fin tuna entre were outstanding. The mini-dessert sampler was a real treat. The interesting menu makes you want to come back for more.
