“Lovely restaurant inside the Manchebo Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We ate here a couple of times because it was recommended to us by a few folk..It is indoors and is very pleasant there. We had wonderful food and service by the staff. We were able to use our dine around vouchers and considered it well priced for the quality of food we ate, had we been paying that instance. My husband claimed the Dutch steak dish was fabulous. The bottles of wine are not too overpriced either.

“Best thing was the piano player.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This place was disappointing. We ended our vacation in Aruba and, unfortunately, had booked this restaurant for our last night. Our waiter (Harold) was extremely nice, and we reallly enjoyed the piano music. However, the food was not up to our expectations at all. My husband had the shrimp which he said was OK, but my catch of the day (grouper) was not. The whole meal, in my opinion, was rather tasteless. We would not be returning here on our next visit, as there are many good choices on this island.

“Rack of lamb, yes, steak, no”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

My wife had the rack of lamb. They were very tender and tasty. I had the T-bone steak. Not so good. We went there because of the name "Steakhouse". One expects a steakhouse to have great steak. Not this place. We usually go to Chalet Suisse where the steak has always been excellent. Guess where we will be going the next time we want steak. I gave it an "average" because of the lamb, not the steak.

“Love the atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Make sure you get reservations if you go later than 7, because it fills up. I loved the chicken skewers, the dutch steak, the chocolate mousse and the calamari.
