We've visited Aruba for 20+ years & never disappointed with Chalet Suisse on Eagle Beach. Even as 1st-time diners we were greeted warmly & treated like "regulars" by staff. Lovely atmosphere, impeccable service & meals to savor and share! Check out the website & menu before arrival & you won't be disappointed. Negative reviews are an anomaly! Seafood & lamb... More

We dined here last night for dinner and really enjoyed the chateaubriand and chocolate cake for dessert! Service and food were both excellent! Highly recommended while in Aruba- it was the best dinner we've had here!

When we are in Aruba for Thanksgiving, this is always where we go to celebrate the holiday. This year was no different and we were not disappointed. The same wait staff is hear year after year and I think some have been there since they opened in 1998. We had the Chateaubriand and it was cooked to perfection and better... More

I've been coming to Aruba for over 10 years but this was our first trip to chalet Suisse. Not sure what took us so long to try this staple. The service was outstanding and so was the food. Seemed unique and it didn't feel like we were in Aruba with the all inside seating, but that I guess is the... More
