I am surprised this restaurant has such high ratings. As soon as we were seated the waitress asked us to place our order without any time to review the menu. The tablecloth was so thin you could see through it. The prices were pretty high but the food was just average at best. My wife and I had the feeling we should not stay a minute longer after finishing our meal because the staff wanted the table for another customer. You don't have to worry about asking for the check at the Chalet Suisse; it is all but served with the meal. Actually, I think we were in the Chalet Suisse about 30 minutes from the time we were seated for dinner to the time we left. So, if it's warp speed service you are after, this is your restaurant in Aruba.

Came in with my family, party of 5! We got seated right away. We got served water and asked for a bottle of wine. The server that opened the wine had never heard of rules opening a bottle of wine. After that service went downhill. Had to wait 20minutes before we could order. When the food came it was nothing special. Rib steak meat was blend, no flavor. My wife’s filet mignon was burned.. nobody came by to check on the food. Not going back here that’s for sure.

Everything about Chalet Suisse was excellent. Our host Mr. Benny was very nice and friendly and our waiter Mr. Humphrey was just as nice and attentive. Menu consisted of a variety of excellent choices. Needless to say the food was extraordinary. Can't wait to go back when we are there next year,
