“Romantic little spot...”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Sjalotte is a romantic spot with beautiful gardens. The food was good and the presentation very nice. Be sure to wear mosquito spray as it is outdoors...same as most places on Curacao. We would come back to this place.

“great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We ate dinner here twice because it was close to our hotel (Hilton) and the food was really good. Excellent food and service. Nice garden-like atmosphere.

“Private Group Dinner/Special Occasion”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

My husband and I selected Sjalotte to host a private dinner buffet for ourselves and 70 guests when we visited the island for our destination wedding. We selected Sjalotte based on previous trip advisor reviews and due to the fact that working with the staff to plan the event (over email) was a pleasant experience. We communicated for several months prior to our arrival, and met in person once we arrived on the island.

Sjalotte is located directly across the street from the Marriott where we were staying so it was perfect for us and our guests as it was less than a 5 min walk. We selected a barbecue dinner buffet and bar option for our guests. The dinner was held outside on the patio next to the pool. The hotel had set up tables/chairs with candles along the pool. The food was wonderful - several salads (bean, vegetable, couscous), breads, meats on the grill, pastas, not to mention wonderful desserts, were spread on a buffet next to the pool area. Our guests had so many compliments about the food and venue. The bar staff was quick to serve our guests so there was never a wait a the bar. Everyone at Sjalotte was friendly and so helpful. If you find yourself in a similar situation--wanting to plan an group event-- I would definitely recommend Sjalotte. Everything turned out better than we had hoped for. If we visit Curacao again, we will definitely eat at Sjalotte.

“Moskito trap”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Located opposite of the Marriott Beach Resort, the restaurant of the Floris Hotel can be an alternative for people tired of the limited choice in Mariott.
The restaurant is located in a nicely decorated inner patio, but there lies the problem: It' s hot and humid and despite a few ventilators you will be sweating soon, worse if you do not wear long trousers, socks, shirts with long sleeves you will be yourself dinner for hundresd of little barely visible moskitos. The service was quick, but we were the only people there in the beginning of the evening, the choice is limited, can be seen online at the hotel's website, the quality was average, and so were the prices, we ended a little above 100 dollars for one pizza, one fish plate and one chicken plate with a little wine. So nothing really bad, but we do not really recommend either, if you go choose moskitoproof clothing

Thank you guzui for sharing your experiences with us.

Every day we are giving a 100% for making the best out of your dinner. As you write you where visiting in August this year, this is the hottest period of the year. Most of the spots in the restaurant are ventilated, and next to outside dining we also have a section with air-conditioning. Most of the time we also provide mosquito spray if they approach you. As of September this tear we renewed and expended our menu. This is viewable on our website and facebook page https://www.facebook.com/restaurantsjalotte

Please let us know when you will visiting Curacao again, so we can make up the experience.

Kind regards,

Team Sjalotte
