We love this restaurant so much that we have begun a tradition of eating there on the night of our arrival as well as the night before our departure. The service is superb and the food is consistently above average. Our favorites include the weiner schnitzel and the rack of lamb, both amazing! Their signature white chocolate mouse dessert is...

My mother and I came here on vacation. The service was excellent. My mother had the lobster bisque and fillet. Her exact words...better than Ruth's Chris on both accounts!!! Coming from her that means a lot. I had the escargot and whole rack of lamb. Yes, snails. Honestly, the shallot and butter sauce they cook it in was succulent and... More

We were a party of 11 and we went the day after Christmas. From appetizers to dessert there were no left overs! The rib eye as well as the filet mignon were excellent. Everything is prepared first class, as well as the service. We decided to go back the last night in Aruba.

I was hoping to be blown away by this place, but I wasn't. It was good, just not great like some other restaurants we've visited in Aruba. The staff was friendly and everything arrived quickly. My wife and I shared a salad to start, which was very fresh. For dinner, I had the Wiener Schnitzel which in hindsight maybe wasn't... More

I didn't travel to Aruba thinking that I'd enjoy an old-school Euro-centric dining experience but that's what the Chalet Suisse had to offer. It succeeded! The service was top rate: attentive and helpful but not intrusive. The interior decor is a bit dated but gave off a cozy vibe with its light colored wood tones. The menu provided a nice... More

This place is number one in atmosphere and excellence of service and food. The place was packed every table full. It showed me that Chalet Suisse has their act together. Service was impeccable, filling drinks, removing empty plates. Four or five service people/managers asking constantly if everything was ok. Food came quickly and was delicious & nice size portions. Server... More

Unfortunately the first 10 years we traveled to Aruba we did not go to Chalet Suisse. When we finally did go there we were pleasantly surprised and have subsequently visited this wonderful restaurant at least once during our stays. The food is consistently good, the service always impeccable. We have eaten here with one other couple, and many times with... More

We almost didn't go here because the look didn't fit into the island vibe. We were staying in a condo across the street. Both our taxi driver from the airport and the security guard highly recommended Chalet Suisse. After a very busy day of sightseeing we decided we only had the energy for this place. Boy were we in for... More

First the staff seem to connect with the customers, over the almost 30 years chalet Suisse seems to establish long relationships with dinners. a short check-in Facebook post generated several how's "Benny". I have seen the same faces on staff for years. That in itself is a statement! Secondly the plates are hot and the food is "Lekker" (tasty) too... More
