About
"Omakase" means "I'll leave it to you" (from Japanese "to entrust"). The expression is used at sushi restaurants to leave the selection to the chef. The Chef will present a series of plates, beginning with the lightest and proceeding to heavier, richer dishes. When ordering Omakase, expect the Chef to be innovative and surprising in the selection of dishes. Ordering from the menu is available as well. Located inside the French Steakhouse Restaurant at the Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa this sushi bar features an illuminated bar, comfortable seating, boutique feel and ambiance. We prefer Cashless payments due to the Covid-19 pandemic

We picked Omakase special for 2 people which "lets chef choose". It included miso soup, crab salad, rolls and desert. IT was a lot of fresh good food, but I normally hope for something more unsual and suprizing, this special had nothing we could not...order ourselves. Atmosphere was pleasant, despite Covid curfew we did not feel rushed even though we had 8:15 reservation. Service was very good.More

We were able to get an 8:00 reservation on the same day we wanted to eat there. We stayed next door at Bucuti and took the lit pathway into the restaurant. Our server Stephanie was wonderful and very attentive. She recommended the Sake and when...I wanted the real crab vs. the imitation crab in the crab roll she said no problem and it was very fresh and delicious. My husband had the Yellowtail Sushi and he said it tasted like butter and so fresh. This was a great decision after a relaxing day in the sun for something light and fresh.More

This was my first time eating at this restaurant. I enjoyed it very much! The sushi’s are amazing. The Miara Maki roll was the bomb... our waiter Jordany recommended it and we enjoyed it very much. Ebitem maki, garden maki and Manchebo special maki were...also very delicious. And please ask for the Yakisoba when you taste it you can’t get enough. We had a very great service from Jordany he is very nice and friendly and knows what to recommend from the menu. He also asked at first if anyone has some sort of food allergy so he can know about it. You don’t get asked very often if you have allergies. Last but not least ask for e Mango flavored Caipirinha ;)More

We had a short trip while in Aruba and after talking to some people, we realized we needed to find a way to fit Omakase into our plans. We decided to head over there for a pre-dinner as we already had dinner reservations. After an...amazing crab salad appetizer we had the Miara Maki roll with a glass of Cava. All of it was fantastic and I wish we would have eaten there again to try more.More
