I went to dinner at the French Steakhouse based on another recommendation on trip advisor. It did not disappoint. Harold was as charming and helpful as previously described and my husband and I had a wonderful filet mignon dinner.

This is the first trip to the French Steakhouse for me but not for my husband - he said it was exactly as he remembered, great ambiance, food and service. I agree. The service was top notch. Harold was our amazing waiter, host, care-taker. The food (steak of course) was delicious. We sat outside (make sure when you make reservations... More

Excellent staff and the restaurant itself (and outdoor garden) are very nice. However, for the price, the food just wasn't good enough. They charge the same prices as other places on the island which are excellent, however, the French Steakhouse's food quality was only average. Our food was lukewarm and our steaks underseasoned. If you're staying at Manchebo and don't... More

The food was good and your good a good meal for your money. The night we went it was very busy so our service was not great. We had to wait a long time for our desert and then bill but overall a good place to go

we did the early bird special and I enjoyed my grouper entree. Harold gave the suggestion on how it could be prepared and I loved it. The restaurant was very pretty and I got some lovely photos. This restaurant was recommended to us by another couple who was staying at the Divi Golf Village like we were and we were... More

We both thought the atmosphere was relatively nice. The service started out kind of slow, but improved during the meal. We both had the filet mignon and were not impressed with our steaks. They were a bit tough -- not good for a steakhouse. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bad place and perhaps other items on the menu... More

I have been going to Aruba for 16 years (week 8 timeshare at Casa del Mar next door) and always visit the French Steakhouse at least once. The food is always delicious and the servers are friendly and very accommodating. If you are in Aruba put this on your list of places to try for dinner.

The steak was just ok. Service was good. Should have known something was up when we were the only patrons in the place on Friday night at 8:00.
