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

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.

Disapointed this time

Two years ago I ordered Lobster Thermador. It was excellent. When my wife and I ordered it in April 2014, we were very disappointed as the lobster was hard and tasteless. We did not complain as we were with another couple who were delighted with their entrees. We wished we had ordered something else. We will return as we love the restaurant. It was just a bad choice on our part.

Switerland & Pine Trees near the Aruban Beach

The Chalet Suisse was #1 on our list of restaurants to dine at in Aruba. And what a marvelous dining experience we enjoyed! With the impeccably dressed staff and the spacious & charming restaurant, the atmosphere was one of old country grace. The meal was a relaxing production! From the French Onion & Pea Soups, to the salads, then the Beef Stroganoff, followed by desserts, every bite was delicious & savored. The wines were lovely. And the martini was icy perfection. This restaurant is a gem that must be visited!!!

Another fine meal

We had another wonderful meal at Chalet Suisse and appreciated the warm hospitality from all the employees as well as delicious meals for both of us. I ordered the filet mignon, which was excellent. My wife had the chicken cordon bleu, which she also enjoyed along with the asparagus au gratin. We had coffees and desserts-all quite tasty. Thanks for another great evening at one of Aruba's finest, and friendly, dining establishments. We'll be back!

Best meal of our trip!

Just got back from vacation today. We had some great meals during our stay, but Chalet Suisse was by far our best dining experience. Everyone's appetizer, entree, and dessert was thoroughly enjoyed. The rack of lamb exceeded the hype ...every piece was cooked perfectly and was absolutely delicious. Service was great too, Benny the manager is awesome, all class. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
