This traditional restaurant is always an amazing experience. The food is superb each and every visit. We love the maitre d' Benny and the drink lady. We have been visiting this place in vacation every year for 15 years and have never been disappointed.

Went to Chalet Suisse twice during our week in Aruba. Delicious food, friendly and attentive staff. Everyone works together and makes the entire dinner run seamlessly.

A couple with a glass of wine can spend between USD100 and USD150. Be sure to make a reservation. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Expect to pay about $50/pp if you have an appetizer and entrée-maybe even a glass of wine. Chalet Suisse food is not fabulous but the atmosphere is lovely and you will enjoy yourself. I make sure that I visit every year... More
