Food was good, not outstanding and the prices were a little steep for the restaurants we visited. We both had the Filet Mignon ($26 for the 6 oz; $36 for the 10 oz) and they were fine. It seemed that for an upscale steak house they would have better flavoring in their steaks. I used the sauce that came with... More

I have been visiting Aruba for so many years, starting back in 1991. I have always include a visit to this restaurant and enjoyed the experience. That was until this last time! Very disappointing. I found the wine selection, and pricing unacceptable. I only eat steak about twice a year and this meal is one of them , but will... More

This was the first time that we tried LG Smith and we were underwhelmed. The restaurant has a pretentious vibe with nothing to back it up. The food didn't have much taste and the waiter took a long time to take our order, refill drinks, etc. The atmosphere is good, but the service and food are just average at best.... More

This is one of the most expensive restaurants in Oranjestad, with a very luxurious interior. Unfortunately, besides that interior and good steaks it has little to offer. At the start, the waiter introduced himself to us, but then we have hardly seen him. We are served by three different persons, making a messy impression. The starters were very moderate. The... More

I did not like the dessert. However, the steak was great as well as the salad I had with it. We took advantage of the spa and dinner package they had at the time in Sept 2014.

Had a really nice dinner with great atmosphere. Service was spot on and steaks were delish. Can't believe it took so long for us to visit. We will be back next year.

Restaurant has an early bird special that you must ask for if seated before 7:00. $ 79.00 USD including Service Charge for a couple includes choice of glass of wine/beer with meal, soup/salad, main course & desert. Steaks are speciality and are excellent in quality and presentation. A great choice while on the island!

Always dine at LG's when in Aruba. The food (petite filet mignon) is excellent and always cooked to perfection. The desserts are delectable. The atmosphere is fantastic. And of course we alway check to see when "Andrey" our waiter is working. We wouldn't miss seeing him. He is such a pleasure to have take care of you and remembers us... More
