    Restaurant Spotlight ~~ LG Smith ~~

    Delicious food. Awesome service.

    It is a lovely restaurant, but it seems to me that it lacks "Caribbean ambiance"

    We have not been there in 4 or 5 years.

    Same thing we thought. You think you could be in NYC or Boston or Tulsa when you walk in the door.

    We ended up there one night as our backup. My 1st reaction was that I was a little disappointed because it really felt like a U.S. Steakhouse. I have to say though, the food was fabulous.

    Fantastic wine list. Like a lot of commentators, it didn't feel right in the Caribbean.

    I really appreciate that when you order a side of asparagus or other vegetable you get a fresh decent size portion. When we're in Aruba I'm missing vegetables after a few days. It seems that in many restaurants in Aruba if the menu says served with vegetable it usually isn't much more than a bite or two. I do understand though, with having to have most everything imported.

    I've been going here for the past 3-4 years, love the beef tenderloin melts in your mouth. Don't get me started on the bread basket (lol) yum yum. Service has always been great! The only thing that is a little weird is the sound of the slot machines in the background. This year I am going to try a different restaurant for our special night out as learning from this forum way too many great restaurants we need to try a new one each year!

    If it's a tenderloin you seek... along with a great atmosphere for that special night out. Try Quinta del Carmen, Screaming Eagle or the Sunset Grille.... all have been a hit with us. And, of course, Madame Janette's.
