Our first time at Chalet Suisse. The food was outstanding as was the service! The restaurant has great ambiance. Our reservations were at 7:00 pm and we were immediately seated. No crying or annoying children made for a great night out. We ordered the chateaubriand for two - it was a awesome piece of beef. Our bill with cocktails came... More

We come here every year when we visit Aruba. Food is always great. Drinks are good too. Very busy, must make reservations.

We wanted to have at least one really fancy dinner while we were in Aruba for our honeymoon. This place definitely fit the bill! Not only was the food excellent, the service was so impeccable that we left an additional tip on top of the already added service charge. Everyone was so attentive and the food recommendations were absolutely yummy.... More

This was our first time, but will certainly not be our last. The service is impeccable, and the food is delicious! If you want a bit of romance, request a table by the window for an ocean view. The restaurant accommodates large parties easily, as well. Order the chateaubriand!

Wow--what an amazing experience. Everyone makes you feel at home from the time you walk in the door right up until the time you leave. I highly recommend the chateaubriand!!! If you can score a table by the window, you will not be disappointed in the view.

From the outside the restaurant is a little dark but once inside it is very pleasant. You are greeted with a "welcome home" from the maitre'd Benny. He has been a fixture on the island for close to 40 years. Most of the waiters and eaitresses have been working there for years. The service is top notch. Your water glass... More

We were in Aruba seven nights, and went here one of the first nights, and returned for a second night after another restaurant was closed unexpectedly. We really liked the food. I got the broiled seafood, which was fresh and wonderful, and a nice salad.... My partner found the service a little too pushy and prodding ... likes to take... More

This is one of our favorites and we make a point of going there at least two times in our 10 day stay. Little bit more formal, thought we did wear shorts, and capris, no jackets are required. Food is excellent.
