we stayed at the hotel and had the 5 course dinner one night. pretty decent food and great presentation. however, some of our dishes came too cold for my taste. this place would have gotten 4 stars if the food would have been hot.

This restaurant was in our hotel and as such we enjoyed a few meals here. The food was all very good; however, the service is painfully slow. On a positive note the chef and staff were considerate enough to prepare a vegetarian meal option for my husband as their fixed menu didn't have one - so don't be afraid to... More

I absolutely loved this restaurant. My family and extended friends ate dinner here after their happy hour on a Friday night (for which their bartenders were all awesome and had super cute "let me spoil you" shirts). It wasn't too crowded, had a beautiful atmosphere, music, lighting, light breeze, etc. Lucky for me, I live in Australia and I've removed... More

We ate here because it was in our hotel. Service was lousy even for "island time" mentality. The food was expensive as expected, but had a lot to be desired - not good. We will not eat there again.

If quality of food is more important than quantity, then you will enjoy dinner at Sjalotte. Choices on the menu were very limited, but I really enjoyed each course. The food was original and with a Caribbean twist. Staff was friendly and attentive, which is a perk on Curacao.

The main doors with the Sjalotte name on the canopy takes you to the pool. If you go to the Floris Suites entrance it is easier to find the restaurant. The service was good and the food was outstanding. It is a pre-fixed 3-course menu. The smoked banana soup to the beef chauteubriand. For dessert make sure you ask for... More

Mixed views on this one… It’s a very ambitious place with high goals but doesn’t really reach them. It’s a really charming and romantic atmosphere and the service was very cozy and warm. White tablecloth, good napkins, great breadbasket… The ideal place for a romantic dinner with the wife. Only to be slightly let down by the music being plaid... More

very unique place. It is set in the court of a small hotel. Service can make the difference and this place has it., The wait staff is attentive but not too much. The menu is small with a 3 course meal so it is small but we found meals that we enjoyed. They were well prepared and we enjoyed them... More
