Excellent Food, Very Pricy.

I can only give this restaurant a Very Good rating as the prices are out of line. The food is delicious and you enjoy wonderful views of the harbor. Dinner for two with two drinks and a bottle of wine was $240. Least expensive bottle of wine is $50.

We went here quite a bee times already and it never seems to disappoint! LG is an excellent steak house with only the best cuts of meat and the service is one of the best of Aruba. They also have the most extensive wine list that just screams that whoever made it put a lot of time and effort in... More

We had my daughter's sweet 16 birthday dinner here and the food and staff were amazing. We had a private room and food was cooked perfectly.

Having experienced this restaurant in the past, we were expecting the same great food and service. Unfortunately, both were poor and disappointing. We ordered rib steak and were told a half hour later that our order wasn't placed. Our waiter never came back to our table during this period. When we finally received our meal, it was undercooked and dry.... More

Is a good restaurant for fine dine. It is located indoor in a Crystal Casino. They are specialized in steak. however I dont eat steak, so I asked for chicken and it was super tasty. Very nice for having a dinner with friends or a honeymoon treat.

All five of us went to eat here. Four of us enjoyed what we ordered. I did not enjoy my vegtable dish. Too much salty sauce. Would not order it next time. Would go back on our next visit.

I really did enjoy my meal there. I had the petite filet mignon and it was cooked to my liking. The pricing may be a little higher than most, but the meal was very enjoyable. The service was average, nothing spectacular. My husband had a steak and shrimp dish and he said it was good. His steak was cooked a... More
