Unfortunately the first 10 years we traveled to Aruba we did not go to Chalet Suisse. When we finally did go there we were pleasantly surprised and have subsequently visited this wonderful restaurant at least once during our stays. The food is consistently good, the service always impeccable. We have eaten here with one other couple, and many times with... More

We almost didn't go here because the look didn't fit into the island vibe. We were staying in a condo across the street. Both our taxi driver from the airport and the security guard highly recommended Chalet Suisse. After a very busy day of sightseeing we decided we only had the energy for this place. Boy were we in for... More

First the staff seem to connect with the customers, over the almost 30 years chalet Suisse seems to establish long relationships with dinners. a short check-in Facebook post generated several how's "Benny".

We've eaten from the southern part of the island to the furthest north. Chalet Suisse by far has had the best food and staff. A must place to eat when visiting Aruba

We made reservations online the same day, they responded promptly. The service was top notch, very attractive. The was what I expected with a nice selection of wines. A good mix of island and Swiss features. A little noisy but all in all great experience.

Food was very good, maybe a wee bit pricey and the service was excellent all around. We had separate bar servers that were very attentive and got the drinks out quickly. Wait staff was very friendly and professional as were various other employees that attended to our table. Would definitely return.

If we could choose only one restaurant to eat at in Aruba, this would be the place. We visit every year, and it remains our favorite for outstanding food and service in an elegant, serene setting. It is consistently good. Highly recommend the lamb chops, French onion soup, and chocolate fondue for dessert.
