We ate at L.G. Smith's most nights and really enjoyed the three-course meal. The portions were perfectly sized and we loved the variety. The wine was great, and the dessert (apple pie a la mode) was even better. I loved the views from the restaurant as well; if you sit near the windows you can watch cruise ships come in... More

We were expecting something very delicious and felt it was just hotel banquet food at best. I wouldn't go back, although the staff were very friendly.

We decided to try this restaurant since we were in Orangestad and had a good meal here 5 years ago on our last visit to Aruba. The décor is unchanged with a modern, simple look to it. The hostess, Heidi, prepared a table to us near the window (the restaurant overlooks the main street, LG Smith, and the water.) I... More

We visited L.G. Smiths as we were taking part in the AGA Dine-Around package. The restaurant is based upstairs in the Renaissance hotel mall, next to the Crystal Casino, and overlooks the main road in Oranjestad. For those dining on the Dine-Around package, there's a special menu - though it offers very good value compared to some of the others... More

We did a massage and dinner package. Although there were only two items to choose from for entrees, they were awesome. Perfect execution in kitchen, service was very good. This is a slower pace restaurant, so don't hurry it New York. Slow down a little and enjoy the island.

LG Smith Steakhouse is probably the most advertised restaurant in Aruba......too bad the food and service does no live up to the hype. The décor had me scratching my head with cafeteria chairs with slip covers..is that nouvelle euro décor????? The lobster thermidor was marginal at beat (the lobster seemed like it was cooked last July), but the tenderloin was... More

Good morning, Brian Z. Thank you for your visit and for your comments. We must agree that our design firm missed the mark a bit in our recent renovation. Coincidentally, 40 new chairs arrived Friday and were immediately put into place (you will notice the sharp improvement immediately ;-). Most concerning is the lobster thermidor issue which was discussed Saturday... More
