This place was spectacular, I had the stuffed grouper and its stuffed with crab and its to die for, melts in your mouth!! The desserts are very good and they give you an abundance of choices including a chocolate fondue, which is pricey!! If you are looking for a top of the line experience, go to this place!!!

Went to Chalet Suisse twice during our time in Aruba. They had an early bird special although priced a bit high was worth it. Service was very good.

This restaurant stands well above the norm for dining in Aruba. They are a fine dining restaurant in every respect from the decor, cuisine, and attitude of both the manager Rudolph Ratzenbach to the staff. Every aspect of the dining experience is above the norm. During the so called high season (December thru February) reservations are almost a must. Out... More

I liked everything. We have eaten here every trip to Aruba. The food is excellent as well as the service. Nothing negative to say.

I made a reservation at Chalet Suisse for two people at 7:00PM. A taxi ride from the Ritz Carlton to the restaurant is around 10 -11 dollars. Once we arrived, we were greatly warmly by Benny and he graciously escorted us to a window side table with a gorgeous view of the sunset. Since it was white asparagus season, we... More

As we are usually in Aruba when CS is closed for holiday, we haven't dined here in 10 years. We were so glad we had the opportunity to eat here again. The service was attentive and friendly and the meals were all very good. This is a large place but the organization of staff and quality of the food makes... More

Benny always greets us and welcome us back to Aruba. As always the food is excellent along with the service. I had the Filet Mignon and the lamb was excellent.

We ended up at Chalet Suisse by mistake, and ended up having one of the best meals of our vacation. We obviously didn't have a reservation, but the host couldn't have been nicer and sat us at a table immediately. The service was fantastic. I ordered the Swiss dish (who's name I can't remember nor could I pronounce) which was... More

Food was excellent, best filet mignon I have ever had. Definitely go for a nice date night! Don't forget to split a dessert, the cheesecake is huge.
