We went here at the urging of my baby boomer parents, who have come to Aruba and eaten here time and time again. This is when I should have said, "ok, let me do the searching on Trip Advisor for tonight's dinner", but I relented and went. Was it a mistake? Well, this restaurant can be summed up in... read more

I may have already reviewed this. Very disappointed in the service. We had a party of 10 and were assigned a #.The waitress called us bye 3 and yelled across the table. Never returned to see if we wanted a second drink. The food was excellent but not over abundant for the price.

Been going there for 20+ years. Always consistent. Excellent food and service. Expensive. Same servers and staff there for years.

we arrived at Chalet Suisse around 5:30pm. The offered a 3 course early bird special for $33 which included an appetizer, entree, dessert & coffee. An order of the much talked about beef stroganoff & an early bird special. The stroganoff was plated at the table, a huge portion with tons of fall apart beef tenderloin, better than I thought...

I have always wanted to try Chalet Suisse as it came highly recommended by friends and family. First, the lighting is poor - too dim. Unfortunately, it was an off day for the staff which was a bad first impression. They took our order on tablets which delayed ordering process as they tapped/clicked away. The food was good but I...

This is no doubt one of our favorite restaurants in Aruba, proven by the fact that we ate there twice this visit! From the moment you enter the restaurant and are told "Welcome home" by Benny, you know that this will be a delightful dining experience. The servers are attentive and friendly. I love the wiener schnitzel and my husband... More

We went to Chalet Suisse because of the reviews on line and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent. The food was hot and excellent. The inside is so pretty with lots of wood and seemed very authentic with it's design. We will return on our next visit to Aruba.

Enjoyed our first visit so much, we went back again! The food and the service are out of this world! We enjoyed shrimp scampi, beef stroganoff, and the AMAZING chocolate fondue dessert. Friends of ours had the rack of lamb and a grouper special and everyone enjoyed their meals! Be careful - if you order a salad ask for dressing... More

Our visit to the Chalet Suisse was delightful as usual. Benny escorted us to our requested table. After catching up with him we placed our order with Pedro, our excellent server .We each had an order of their superior escargots, followed by Macadamia encrusted Grouper. We ended our meal with their homemade ice cream. This was another wonderful meal in... More
