Stone cooking

May 25, 2012 - posted by
This restaurant was a new experience for my wife and I. They actually bring you your entree partially cooked and served on a HOT stone. This allows you to cook it the rest of the way just the way you like it. My wife had seafood food and I had beef. We shared some of each other food. My wife likes beef cooked more that I do so this allowed me to do that. The service was good, the setting was very pleasant and the price was good for Aruba (where most all restaurants are expensive). It is right in the middle of all the nightlife and is located in front of Playa Linda Hotel.

Favorite spot

Apr 21, 2012 - posted by
We enjoyed this spot in downtown area and then two years ago ate at the new location on the beach. We have never been disappointed and the owner was so hospitable and we had our photo taken with him. We are going back in ten days and will be visiting again. The food is outstanding and so special and different than the typical restaurant. If you want a real treat, go to this spot.

We ate here years ago for breakfast and it was OK. Went back two years ago and the food was horrible! We vowed to never go back again.

I wish that I had read Larrys review below before I went to Le Petit Cafe. Not much has changed since His review in 08. Besides the person that sits you down...nobody smiles, looks you in the eye or manages to come back to ask you if you need anything. The portions are very small for the price. The cat is still there. For $31 you would think they could at least give you a salad since you get to cook your own food (on the stone) That is the only cool part about this resturant. In addition since they are one of the resturants on the High Rise Hotel Beach they charge the 15% service charge which according to them is not a tip. Stay away from this resturant unless you want to over pay for small portions and be treated rudely in the process. However, if that is how you want to spend a day of your vacation go for it.

The hostess who sat us was the only person who smiled the whole time we were there. She sat us at a nice table for 2 presented the menu and left. That was too bad as the rest of the evening went downhill very quickly. The server then came to the table and throws the bread basket down and left. No offer for drinks, a good evening, what the specials are, or even a friendly welcome. When the server finally came back I ordered a diet coke and a bottle of wine from the extensive list of (5). The server had no clue what a Pinot Grigio was and had to look at my menu to figure out which of the 5 wines I had ordered. When the wine was delivered it came is a bucket with a handful of ice cubes and lots of water to keep it cool, I had to ask what the fish of the day was or if they had any specials. It was as though the server had no desire to work or even care if we were there or not. It was a true burden for her to be working. It seems like the island has forgotten who really pays for there salary and the jobs that they have. We ordered an appetizer of Calamari which came out very chewy and burnt. The picture on the menu of the calamari was why we ordered them as they looked so good. When the Calamari was delivered I had already finished my diet coke some 20 minutes ago, but of course our waitress was just so busy to see if we needed anything else as the waitress who did not want to me there did not even bother to ask if I would like another because she would have had to walk to the bar to get another and I am sure that would mean she had to work. After we finished the appetizer we had to wait 45 minutes for the main course to arrive. My wife had the Jumbo Shrimp which I might add was very good and cooked to perfection. But before the food came the waitress pulled a bib over each of our heads with out even an excuse me or asking , she just pulled this large bib over each of our heads with no explantions. I of course pulled mine off and wished I had not as the way the food is served on a Hot Rock leaves little room for error while eating, or cutting your food. I ordered Salmon which was tasty but already cooked and was only burning on the Hot Rock as it sat there. Smoke is billowing into your face, and the heat from the rock was very uncomfortable. The food was brought to the table and placed before us and of course the waitress left without a single word. No sauces were brought out and when my wife asked for some the waitress was very upset that she would have to go to the kitchen to bring out some sauce. Well dinner was almost over and I was still eating my French Fries with no ketchup, just a small bowl of frozen fries and served cold when our server reached in front of me and started to clear my plates. I am not talking about just sitting there kind of eating I was actually putting the fries into my mouth as she reached in front of my face and started to clear my table. I thought the restaurant needed us to leave the way our waitress cleared the table so quickly. Of course that was not true as it took us another 30 minutes to even get the waitress to come back over to the table to give us our check and that was only because she was helping another table serve the food near us and my wife had to yell for her to get our check. No offer for coffee or desert, and truthfully we would not have ordered anyway based on how long it took to get shrimp and salmon. I come to Aruba at least once a month over the past year and I can tell you that I will do everything and use everything available to me to keep people away from this restaurant. The service was non existent; the food was ok nothing special as the menu is very limited. I have not felt so unwanted or un-respected in a restaurant since I quit going to St. Maarten. Oh did I mention the cat that walks around your feet while you are trying to eat. Healthy I am sure. If you have over 2 ½ hours to eat a simple dinner and want to be treated like a second class citizen then try Le Petit Café - Play Linda Resort. If you want service and good food I strongly suggest you go elsewhere on the island.

We ate at the advertised ALL YOU CAN EAT BREAKFAST BUFFET. This in itself is a little misleading as there is no buffet. You order from a menu and you can get more of the food if you want. The service was very slow. We had difficulty getting anyone to help us to begin with and then difficult to get anyone to come back and see if we wanted anything else from the "buffet". When we arrived in the morning, the restaurant was not all that clean and it really was not an appealing place to eat. The eggs were not that tasty either, overall the food was not very good. The inexpensive price was the only appealing part but I would have rather paid a little more and had service and a good breakfast! Will never go back there again!!!!!
