Great partial out door setting, seafood is outstanding and drinks are great. Try the "Ginger Snap" cocktail, great twist on a mojito. Tuna was awesome and service/atmosphere very nice.

There were only four other tables in restaurant so not sure what was going on! Ventilation was bad and I was drenching by the time we... More

Ok - not speechless. A great place to kick back for a relaxing evening dinner. Really enjoyed the Marlin dip. Never had it prepared like that and it was incredible. Have been going to the restaurant for years and never even thought to leave a review until now. Always fresh, well prepared, you will love it! Don't forget the sauces... More

My husband and I have been coming to Bonaire for the last 7 years and always make time to have dinner at Wil's. The dinner is never rushed which gives you time to enjoy the food and company. Wil and his wife Sue are wonderful hosts. We were early for our reservations but sat at the bar to have a... More

My husband and I always visit Wills while in Bonaire. They always have fresh fish and great tenderloin. The owner makes his own special sauces and spices that he also sells at the restaurant, and in town. If you come to Wills you are in for a treat!! P.S. Don't forget dessert it's always so good!!!

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
