“What a surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

We saw an ad in a St. Maarten magazine for Le Chalet Suisse and thought it looked really interesting. We found the location on the map and drove by to see where it was. From the outside it is very unimpressive and we almost did not even try it. Just for the sake of adventure we did. Oh my goodness!!! What a wonderful and delightful surprise! Inside is a cozy interior with a wonderful ambience and the food and service were the best. Gwen helped us to decide on the Raclette with dried meats and potatoes. We started with salads and escargot. Then Gwen brought the main course and showed us how to melt and scrape the melted Raclette onto the plates of meat and potatoes. We finished off the meal with home made ice cream and sorbet. Amazing! We were able to use our Visa for the meal but needed to use cash for the gratuity. This is a wonderful place to spend an evening enjoying some delightful food and service.

“Extraordinary Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Just returned from one of the most enjoyable and tasty meals I have had on St. Martin and I have been coming here for 25 years. The fondue was excellent as was the meat fondue. We were then given some racelette which was amazing (another table sent some over) The chocolate fondue and the ice creams and sorbets were a great way to end the meal. Then the check came, $158 for 3 people including a bottle of wine, beer and water. A true buy on this island. The only reason I would urge you not to go is so that it won't be too busy when I return next year. Treat yourself to a great meal and a pleasant dining experience. The service was extremely friendly and helpful.
