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

Always enjoy dining at LG's. The atmosphere is nice and our favorite and best waiter Andrey always welcomes us on our return. The food is very tasty and the filet mignon is cooked to order. Desserts are yummy as well!

We visit lots of Marriott properties all over the world. The meal at LG Smith was the best we have ever had at a Marriott property and the best meal we have had in aruba so far. The "early bird" special from 5:30 to 7 offers a good variety of three courses with wine and service for $79. The atmosphere... More

This is the first time dining at this restaurant and I wasn't all that impressed. The atmosphere is nice with windows looking down on the main strip through Oranjestad but the food was lacking. My steak was ordered medium and came out very rare, completely red in the middle. My wife's lobster meal was good but just average. Our server... More
