Stone service was different..

My husband had a meal with the stone service and I had to keep reminding him that his meal was still cooking as he ate. If you like any of your protein on the rare or medium side you need to be aware that you have to move it off the stone. Interesting and different dining experience.

We were here for breakfast, and it was really average. We ordered the pancakes, and an american breakfast and we were not impressed. We had way better breakfast experience at other places for the same price.

The concept of serving meat on a hot stone is a great one. There's no reason to complain about over/under cooked beef. I enjoyed the experience and though the food was good, it was nothing amazing

The meat is cooked and served on stones at your table. I ordered the catch of the day, Mahi Mahi. The menu stated the dish was served with a salad and rice, baked potato, or fries? I asked if the rice was plain and he offered Caribbean rice. When I tried to order a cucumber salad, he said it came... More

Not as good as I remembered. I have been going to Aruba on and off for the past twenty years. This time we should have known, the moment the server came out and said,"sorry, but we have to chill the wine". That was our first red flag...., The second flag came when we finally received our food and the baked... More

Our group hadn't experienced "stone cooking," and the host, Martin, convinced us to give Le Petit a try...and we're very glad we did! What an awesome experience!!

We ordered grouper, steak, and shrimp, received our cooking instructions, and THOROUGHLY... More

This is a cook your own steak on a stone restaurant. I had the shrimp and tenderloin it was amazing. I won't get the cook your own grouper but lobster, shrimp and steak is the way to go! Yes the steak is hot and yes you can burn your food but it is a cool experience
