We picked this restaurant because it was something different. Food comes out uncooked and served on a searing brick. We both had shrimp and lobster. It was an interesting experience and we were pleased with our meal. If you are looking for a unique dining experience give it a try.

Breakfast was good and reasonably priced. Dinner was better and cooking your meal on the warm stone, unique and delicious. Directly on the street so people watching while eating is a must. The food is worth a visit.

I used to like it here. The food was terrible this time with salt being the main flavor. The music was so loud and the sound system awful. I was nice when they had live music. Dinner music should be low enough that you can hear each other speak.

Food wasn't bad but service is ridiculous Takes forever to get your meal That's our only complaint I guess it's ok if you aren't starving

We dined at Le Petit Cafe for the first time during our recent visit to Aruba. The staff was very cordial, responsive, and professional. The table side cooking on a hot stone was unique. The food was good and we enjoyed the open air dining. For our first visit it was very nice.

Had the steak grilled on the stone. It was so good. Staff was great. They did a nice job with presentation and showed you how to continue cooking on the stone as you cut your food. Will go back.

Everything tasted like a strong spice cooked into the stone. I ordered fish and my husband ordered steak, but the tasted the same. The spice was overwhelming and not good. Very disappointing!

This is a unique experience, with a very well seasoned steak and lobster tail presented on a oven hot lava stone so that you cook the steak to your desired degree of doneness. It can be tricky and not recommended for children as the stone is relatively small for the steak and stays hot, but worth the effort. Steak is... More

Traveling with my 6 year old daughter, we tried Le Petit for our last meal on the island. We were seated right away and our meals came out in normal time. Our drinks were never refilled and after I finished my baked potato with our meals on the table for at least 30 minutes, staff came around with all of... More
