16 Years never a bad meal

Mar 22, 2016 - posted by
We have been coming to Aruba for 16 years now, Chalet Suisse has always been one of our must do restaurants. Well last night was no different from any other year. I can honestly say that we have never had a bad meal here. It's not uncommon to have a bad meal every then and now at your favorite restaurants, but not here !! Service is always great and the food is just ridiculously great here...... We were actually saying that we should just go twice every trip !!!

Welcome home three

Mar 2, 2016 - posted by
We have been coming here every year for the last 15 years, and we have never been disappointed. Benny welcomes us like family and we are practically carried to our table. The service here is the best on the island, bar none. From the sommelier to the entire staff...it is practically choreographed like a ballet as you are handed each dish efficiently and courteously. Everything we ordered was phenomenal, not to mention reasonably priced. My almond crusted grouper was bigger than the plate! The pro shoot with melon was sliced so thinly you could see through it and it tasted as fabulous as it was delicate. Don't miss this wonderful place.

Food was excellent

I had read the negative reviews after making our reservation for 4. I know every experience can be different. I want to say that our food was excellent. We had four different meals. I had the crab cake appetizer and rack of lamb. Our friends had the seafood platter and schnitzel. My husband had two appetizers, the ravioli and linguini mediterrane. I am glad I had the opportunity to return to the Chalet Suisse.

Bad Lobster

Jan 3, 2016 - posted by
We have been going here for the last 15 years, every year, and really loved it. BUT, this year we found it to be horrible. We ordered lobster tails as we always do. The lobster had no taste and worse yet, we have to cut the meat with a steak knife. The manager would not do anything about it. When we returned to our resort, everybody around the pool said they also had many problems with this place and would never go back. After 15 years, we also are never going back.

Another wonderful experience

We are frequent visitors to Aruba and our favorite place to eat is Chalet Suisse. Over the years we have eaten there at least twice a visit and have never had a bad meal. The rack of lamp is second to none and the steak is tender and juicy!. Service is excellent with water glasses refilled almost instantly. All I can say is try it for yourself and I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Average, at best

Feb 11, 2015 - posted by
Friends have raved about this restaurant in the past, so I decided to give it a try. I was rather disappointed in the taste of my dinner (stuffed haddock), the portion was truly microscopic and I am NOT at all a big eater and believe in portion control, however, this was crazy! Four tiny sized pieces of thin fish rolled with crabmeat, each piece was the size of a sea scollop. No flavor, horrible. The meals are quite expensive for what is plated. The staff is extremely attentive, almost to the point of being annoying. I experienced many fine dining experience while visiting Aruba for a week, but this was not one of them. Save your money and make reservations elsewhere!

Somewhat disappointed

Jan 28, 2015 - posted by
4 of us ate there. Super service almost to the point of being annoying. Waiter recommended the steak. Hyped it up.. The steak was just okay. Certainly not of the quality I had expected. Wait staff seemed like they were rushing us through dinner....overall ,not that impressed that I would consider going back

Quality Food

Sep 28, 2014 - posted by
I have been going to Aruba since 1994. We started out as 2 people. Now there is a group of about 35 who meet in Aruba.
We have had birthdays at this restaurant. The food, service, the ambiance is impeccable. The service is always fine.
The mouth watering food that is always served is beyond explanation. I visit this restaurant at least 2x each year. This is truly an unforgettable dining experience that each visitor to this island should experience.
