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.

Excelent food by the best chef in town. This guy used to work at the Waldorf in New York and is a true chef with a passion for bold flavors. He was a judge at a BBQ competition I hosted in the island and then we went to his place for dinner. The food was carefully selected and it all... More

We had never been to Wil's in the 15 years we've been traveling to Bonaire. It was recommended by my snorkel guide and we were pleasantly surprised! The food is delicious and fresh. The chef came out to show us the blue marlin he had smoked and recommended it as an appetizer. It was delicious! The atmosphere is charming with... More

had the grilled fish (tuna) which was fine. Not the best on the island, but very tasty and cooked as we requested. Conch fritters were fine, but needed the sauces supplied to give them enough taste. All in all, good food, just not super outstanding. Prices were fair and the service was fine.

Coconut martinis??? Yup, that's why we headed to Wil's for our farewell dinner on Bonaire. I must say that the smoked marlin was one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life! The savory fish entree was delicious, too. Oh - and try the dessert sampler...you will not be disappointed!

We had memorable fun evening at Wil's. Beautiful outdoor setting, great service and the ribs were the best! I agree with the other reviewers, the smoked marlin is fantastic. And the desserts are the best I've had on the island. Highly recommend it.
