Slow service

Filet Mignon was average. Service on the night we were there was extremely slow. Restaurant definitely not busy, so not sure what happened. Waiter/waitress did not seem very welcoming. Piano bar great!!! Not sure we will return on our next visit to Aruba.

We ate here twice during our stay at the Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa. Both meals were wonderful. The filet was cooked to perfection and the lobster tail was excellent also. As for the service, it could not have been better. Alexander took great care of us both nights. We found out to late but they also have outside setting.... More

Most anyone would have the expectation that a $40+ t bone steak at a French steakhouse would be exceptional...well it wasn't. It was dry and tasteless. Not even the best cut of meat. I would equate this steak to one served at a ponderosa steakhouse for less than $20. The Caesar salad has very little if any part cheese and... More

We have been going to this restaurant for 25 years. Its wonderful. for a nice dinner. They have an early bird special if you're in by 6:55pm. Salad or soup, entree and desert. I think its $35. Well worth it. Get the pan fried Grouper. Its wonderful.

We stayed at Manchebo on the all-inclusive plan and ate dinner at the French Steakhouse three times and at the Sushi Bar twice. Each meal was great, atmosphere is good, service was friendly and outstanding. Very casual, shorts and polo is totally acceptable. I highly recommend this place. Also, the Sushi Bar was super.

We spend a couple of weeks in January in Aruba and always make it a point to dine at the French Steakhouse near the Alhambra casino. The food and service are excellent. I don't know if this is new but this was our first year that I noticed they offer a early bird special between 5-7pm. The early bird offers... More

Revisited a great restaurant. We had the "local" menu of Keshi Yena (fabulous appetizer, with filet and chicken breast as the main course. The chicken was moist and cooked to perfection. The filet mignon was prepared perfectly. The apple strudele as good as we remembered. The service was also fantastic
