We always make a stop to have dinner at the Chophouse when we are in Aruba. Easy walk over from Bucuti and Tara. Restaurant is adhering to all COVID protocols from taking your temperature to contact tracing for all guests. What hasn’t changed is the...service we receive from Harold year after year. The attention and care of service he provides is second to none. He also makes an extraordinary Caesar salad table side. The quality of food is great. On our most recent visit we all enjoyed the soup of the day which was a lobster bisque. Delicious. The filet was prepared perfectly per my order and the porterhouse option is ideal for those that need a solid large steak. Come see Harold and enjoy a perfect meal! We will see you again next year, Harold!More

My boyfriend and I went here multiple times during our stay. The food is amazing. We were obsessed with the shrimp and steak fried rice because not only was it so yummy but it was enough that we could take the leftovers home! I on...the other hand was obsessed with the filet and mushroom risotto. The sushi was also great! FIVE stars for the food. It kept us coming back like I said before. Another FIVE STARS.... JAY the server. First of all let me say he was what made the whole experience so much more special. Our first time going, he waited on us and made it a point for us to take a picture on my phone. Most couples have such a great time and experience that they forget to capture the memories but not jay. He makes sure all of his guests capture that perfect dine in. He was attentive and full of humor. He was also kind enough to tell us what his favorites were on the menu and what we HAD to try. I am in the service industry and if I could hire him back home and make him an employee of mine I would in a heartbeat. He is quite the full circle experience! Thank you so much and we will be back!More

On our recent vacation to Aruba, we dined at the Chophouse at Manchebo for dinner. We were seated poolside with a view of the ocean only steps away. The service was excellent and so was the food. My husband ordered the Churrasco and I ordered...the Beef Stroganoff. Both meals were Delicious!!! On our next vacation to Aruba we will be sure to return to the Chophouse.More

My husband and I travelled to Manchebo Resort for an all inclusive honeymoon. The Chophouse was our favorite menu and restaurant of all. We were amazed with how many people came from outside of the resort to eat this menu, but now, we get why!...The food was exquisite. I am still craving the French Onion soup, amazing steaks, risotto, and so much more. The chef also shared their off menu treats that were amazing. The food and staff will make us come back! Truly have never been more blown away by all inclusive food.More

We stayed at Manchebo recently and dined at Ike Bistro’s for dinner. The food was so fresh and delicious and the staff was top-notch! Very attentive and so pleasant! We had the nightly specials two nights, both grouper dishes prepared differently and each one was...so good! We also ate breakfast at Ike’s, we enjoyed the ambiance and the food was delicious and fresh! We especially enjoyed the smoothies as a healthy way to start our day!More

We had a great dinner with friends at The Chophouse at Manchebo. The food was well prepared and Harold was a great addition as our waiter/comedian. I highly recommend the tomahawk chops and the filets we excellent also. Harold kept things moving right along as...was close by when anything was needed.
