Always warmly greeted. Although indoor dining only, the atmosphere in the dining areas is nice. Wife had appetizer as main entree and waiter didn't blink. shared salad and it came split so we didn't have to. Service excellent but not intrusive. Not rushed, as we enjoyed a glass of wine before ordering.

If you like chicken dry as the Sahara and waiters disturbing you all the time asking if the food was fine and filling up the ice water glass every two minutes, this is the place for you. Personally, I found the service very disturbing. Good service is when you don't notice it. At this place, parts of the food we... More

We had the steak dinner 4 course special for $31 from 5-6:30 pm only. The steak melted in your mouth it was so good. The service was excellent but we felt like the waiters where watching us like a hawk because no sooner we finished with a course they were right there taking the plates away and I felt like... More

My wife and I love the Chalet, their food is great and the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Chalet and Barefoot are our 2 favorite places to eat in Aruba and both are a MUST visit. We started off with Linguini Mediterrane for an appetizer and it was delicious. Their sauce is very very good. Our main course was... More

this is one of our favorite restaurants in Aruba. The food is consistently amazing and the service is always attentive. Their steaks cooked to perfection! We have been there at least five times and they never disappoint. This is a must for any restaurant lover!

I know people love MJ and other restaurants in Aruba, but year after year and trip after trip this is my favorite restaurant on the Island. My favorite Weinerschnitzel and Chicken Pastry appetizer. Though I tried someone's rack of lamb and it was amazing. I might convert to that next trip. On the specials menu they have a white chocolate... More

We went based on recommendations and were disappointed My wife ordered the lamb chops and although the were good they only gave her a small portion for the high price they charge We felt rushed as our reservations were for 7:00 PM and we were finished dinner at 7:25 Will not return as the hype is not justified

May not be inexpensive, however you can always count on a great meal. We always visit twice during our stay.

There are so many really good restaurants in Aruba, but only a relatively few great ones. After being greeted by Benny with a joke, we sat at table 9. The service and attention throughout the meal was enjoyable and was exceeded only by the quality and presentation of the food. Salmon, strip steak and chateaubriand for two with their accompaniments... More
