Classy place with a semi French touch. Gone there every time we are in Aruba. Rack of lamb is a must. Done perfectly and served perfectly. aothe dishes good too. Try desserts. you will not be dissapointed. PS Splitting the rack will satisfy most.

Been to Aruba 15 times and never miss going to Chalet Suisse. Benny's "Welcome home" greeting is just that. The service is impeccable and the food is outstanding.

No, no specific dress code. I was wearing nice "dress" shorts and a nice polo. No jacket or long pants required.
