Nice dinner!

We were staying at this resort, Manchebo, so it was a no-brainer to try this restaurant. It was not disappointing! The staff was very attentive and paced our dinner nicely. We had the fried calamari for an app - very good. I ordered the Shrimp and Scallops dish - very yummy. My hubby had the... read more

We ate here on the recommendation of someone from home who said we had to go there for the best steaks. We were not disappointed. The steaks were very tender and the rest of the meal delicious as well. The staff was very attentive and the service excellent.

We've been to Aruba 5 times and we always go to the French Steakhouse. The food is delicious, the staff attentive, and the ambiance relaxing. We've had both steak and seafood - both outstanding. We first went there because it is within walking distance from the hotel where we stay, but we continue to return each time we're in Aruba!

I can't believe that in the 26 years that we've been coming to Aruba that we haven't tried this restaurant before. The atmosphere was wonderful and we really enjoyed our table by the window. From our appetizers to dessert we couldn't have asked for any better food. My filet mignon was so tender I could almost cut it with my... More

Located in a hotel right by the Alahambra casino, the food was amazing, we had steak and lobster at reasonable prices, the service was quick and friendly, and they helped get you a cab when you were ready.
