Dined here on our last night at Santa Barbara resort. Hostess gave false information about nut content of breads (she said the banana bread didn't have nuts, told us to "cut it open and check". Waiter knew the ingredients, though. Appetizer of fried mixed seafood was such an odd presentation, basically a cereal bowl full of fried tiny scallops, etc. Sauce tasted like plain mayo. Others at my table thought their meals were just ok (risotto, beef, seafood stew). I had pork loin, was awful. I asked for it cooked through but it was so dry and over cooked. The chutney on top had a heavy Indian spice that made it inedible, it was so strong. My 18 yo so ordered a second alcoholic beverage. We, his parents, said "no". The waiter heard this. He brought the drink anyway and gave a laugh as he put it down in front of my son. Who does that??

Restaurant is right beside the Caribbean Sea with an open concept. Can be windy in patio area though. Lots of room between tables - perfect for a nice quiet dinner. Varied menu covers all the basics with a daily 2 for 1 fish and meat selection. The red snapper and beef tenderloin were excellent choices. Beef tenderloin was perfectly done to exactly how we like it. Very good wine list with prices from $36 USD and up with numerous glass selections at $8 USD. We had the same server for the 3 times we ate at The Shore - she was excellent, remembering our names and drinks each time and went out of her way to make sure our 2 for 1 fish selection was available the next day even though not on the menu. This restaurant is high recommended and you should make reservations. The restaurant is closed Mon and Tue.

Shore was a perfect spot for my birthday dinner, and we enjoyed every moment of it! We were seated quickly, and our servers were friendly and went out of their way to make it a very special evening. They even unexpectedly brought a delicious slice of cake for dessert, complete with a birthday song and a sparkler! Thank you for a wonderful evening!

My biggest issue were these nasty beetle flying around. Not little beetles but big ugly bugs. Worst part is there were dead ones all over the floor on the patio and dining area. We can’t control Mother Nature , at least pick up after her. Especially at a restaurant

Had a table outside as reserved. The waiter was attentive and drinks were high quality and delicious. Both my girlfriend’s dish, the red snapper was very good and the curaçao seafood stew which I had was to die for and I eat it down to the last drop. I am sure dessert would have been delicious but were too full to give it a try. It was a good value given the prices for most items at the resorts other restaurants.

Was told it was one of the nicest restaurants on the island but the food quality and presentation was FAR from good, mediocre at best. Ordered a steak filet which came on a bed of canned kidney beans, canned corn & undercooked chopped potato’s. The only thing great about the restaurant was the view of the sunset. Extremely over priced for what you get and will never go back there again on my next visits to Curaçao

Absolutely horrendous. We had 2 extra guests so as soon as we arrived and told them they gave us a very hard time as if they wanted us to leave instead of trying to accommodate 2 extra people. They sat us in a table of 8 and from there it just kept getting worse. Horrible attitude beginning from the hostess, the waitress to the manager that told us he couldn’t divide our bill in three cards. This is our fifth time in Curasao. We love the island and the people. This restaurant experience was the first time we have ever felt unwelcome with the horrible service and attitude. We are guests of Santa Barbara Hotel so this bad experience reflects very poorly on the overall hotel. This restaurant needs to hire good service oriented people and the manager should be either replaced or taught how to properly serve guests and take a hospitality class.

Shores was Awesome. We were greeted by 2 lovely ladies who seated us right by the ocean for an incredible view. Service was impeccable she treated us like royalty and the food was to die for. We had spicy prawn appetizer, red snapper and a grilled chicken salad...delicious!!! We were celebrating our anniversary and they surprised us with a delicious chocolate cake wishing us a happy anniversary. I love this restaurant and will be looking into staying at the resort on our next visit!!!

Wonderful food, outstanding service! We are going back 4/4 nights while in wonderful Curacao. Lobster was stellar, and their unique take on creme brûlée was the best I have ever had. Beautiful ambiance, top 3 best views for a dinner reservation. 12/10 would recommend overall.

The restaurant gives a classic impression but the menu is full of complex combinations. You dont always get what you expect. The staff has a very prominent position, a bit too much. Lights on the sid of the terrace are blinding, needs attention.

Unfortunately the service was slow due to a large party. We were going to order dessert, but asked for the cheque instead because of delay to take our order. The food was excellent and the service accounts for a lower rating.

Stayed at the resort and ate at their restaurant and dined on a Sunday night so maybe not their best service which was the main complaint. The red snapper entree was great but otherwise can’t say much for the food and the bar staff was not able to make classic drinks not on the menu due to not having the ingredients. Also ate at their breakfast buffet which was not nearly as good as their other restaurant, Medi which was amazing!

Went for New Year’s Eve dinner and I just think this could or moved faster and better explain the bill. It never stated if it was USD or in the Curacao currency. The food was amazing though!!!! Would eat there again regardless.

I simply searched on Trip Advisor for this place and was so pleasantly surprised. It is located within the top notch Santa Barbara Resort. I had plans to propose to my girlfriend and the staff carried off the plan flawlessly on short notice. Our server and the Maitre D' were excellent and helpful. They are included in the attached pics.

great view. beautiful interior design. the staff is arrogant. The food - nothing special ...
They debited from the card + 20% of the total bill. The bill was at $ 185. I gave the card for payment and some cash as a cheeps , and they debited my card by $ 222 ?!?!? We did not understand such unacceptable approach !

Food was hit and miss. A bit pricey. Don’t get the crab ravioli. Weird flavor. Not fresh. Get the red snapper. My wife had the rock lobster. Pretty good. The dessert was the star. Creme Brûlée. Honestly, if you live in any big city, you’ve had better food top to bottom. However, you’re in Cuacao and you can’t beat the view!

This restaurant was very poor. The worst dinner overall during a six day stay. Service was poor. There are no assistants or bussers to pour water or take plates away. Servers are over extended and do not check the table for drink refills. Waited over an hour for main course and the lamb chops and fish came out cold as if they were cooked and sat waiting to be served. A terrible dinner experience and the restaurant knew it and removed the entree’s from the bill. Highly overrated place. Go to The Wine Cellar in town.
