We've dined at Wil's approximately six times in the past year during multiple trips to Bonaire. It is easily one of the best restaurants (if not THE best) on an island known for great restaurants. The menu at Wil's changes daily based on availability and freshness. Wil's dishes are skillfully crafted and also inventive. He is a talented chef, and... More

Its hard to say because there are several excellent restaurants on the island. The smoked barracuda appraiser was wonderful. We had a grilled Wahoo served over a mixed salad with couscous.

We just got back from a delightful evening at Wil's with some windsurfing friends. I initially called another local, well known, restaurant for reservations about noon yesterday and it went to a generic voice mail, so called Wil's and Sue answered quickly and took the information. Turns out that 6 more windsurfing friends also made reservations for the same night... More

Had dinner a couple of nights ago. Food was simply delicious ..... Some had beef and others had fish - excellent from start to finish. Did their best to control the mosquitoes .... coils & trying out a new material that looks like a dish of sand on the floor near our table. We booked a table for 6 but... More

Sue forgets they are in the HOSPITALITY industry no matter how you slice and dice it. I've read reviews over the years about HER attitude ( never Wil's so I can't speak to that) and always thought maybe an off day. Today at the local "craft fair" as the cruise ship is in, she is peddling Wil's new hot sauces.... More

My husband and I visit Wil's very time we come to the island and are never disappointed. We went without a reservation but I strongly encourage that you make one ahead of time. We got lucky and were able to get a table before it got too busy. Wil and his wife really made our experience enjoyable. From the wondeful... More

Good, friendly service and enjoyed our main courses. Particularly enjoyed the dessert which consisted of 5 tiny portions of different desserts. Very popular with Americans.

We had a wonderful dinner at Wil's. My companion had beef tenderloin, and I had blue marlin dip and a goat cheese tart. Wish I had had more space in my stomach to eat more! The outside patio area is really striking, so try to eat outside under the trees.

We always look forward to eating at Wils while on Bonaire. I tried the passion fruit daiquiri and the mamacita punch, both were refreshing and frozen. We had smoked marlin dip and it was worth the trip back during week 2! Wil prepared his wahoo differently week to week and I had the beef tenderloin the 2nd visit and the... More
