All year we look forward to dining here, and we are never disappointed. This year we ate with friends and were delighted to discover that the size of the group - six of us, as opposed to just my husband and me - made no difference in the quality of service. We were immediately greeted by Benny with the familiar... More

Chalet Suisse has become a family favorite. Fantastic steaks, but don't overlook the chicken or duck. Wonderful service, a bit of old school dining style (captain, waiter, table side service), but the formula works and works well. All meats cooked and seasoned perfectly and the sauces are equally perfect. Dishes we had were Chateaubriand for two, New York Sirloin Steak,... More

We were seated in a window seat with a beautiful view of Eagle Beach. The wine steward was very knowledgeable, she recommended a wonderful Argentinian Malbec and she was totally in charge of the process. Great evening for our last night on Aruba.

This is a very reliable restaurant that we go to every year. We usually, as was the case this year go for the early bird - must be seated by 6:30. They have four dinner choices on it - sirloin steak, wiener schnitzel, stuffed chicken, and grouper. All are excellent. It includes soup or salad, entree, and coffee and dessert.... More

Every visit to Aruba includes dinner at Chalet Suisse. The restaurant exudes old world charm. You are greeted by the Maitre'D Benny, who is always friendly and welcoming. We began with appetizers of arugula and baked goat cheese and Seafood Chalet Suisse (a mixture of lobster, shrimp, scallops and fish baked in a delicious sauce). Entrees were a perfectly broiled...

Service was professional, prompt, courteous and welcoming. Soups were tasty and served piping hot. My dinner was a steak, cooked to perfection. My wife had the grouper and is still talking about how delicious it was. The Irish coffee was a nice ending to the evening. Don't miss this treat. It's more affordable than Aqua Grill and the food was... More
