My wife and I got some tickets through the Aruba Gastronimc Association to use a 3 restaurants. It's a decent deal and recommend you look into it. We tried Le Petit Cafe and it was a very interesting experience.
It's a french style restaurant that used egyptian hot stone cooking for Caribbean food. Hope you followed that. There's a bit of an identity crisis at this restaurant. (We watch too much Restaurant Impossible).
However, the food was good! I got a mixed seafood platter and my wife got steak. When our food was a the right temperature on our plates, it was great. However, you eat off the hot stone the entire meal. For my wife's steak, it cooked the entire time. So it started rare and went all the way to well done as she progressed through the meal. Same thing with my lobster. It was good when it was at temperature, but then it got overcooked and rubbery.
They have something going, I just don't know what it is. They need to do more table side presentation, cook the food on the hot stone, but removed it when it's at the temperature you want. Especially with the steaks.
If you're on a long trip like we were, I say stop by and give it a try, because it's incredibly unique.
