Made a reservation and requested our room number from our hotel (a different place) when we got there, not sure why that was relevant. The place was empty but they sat us next to the bathrooms. Ordered 3 different types of sushi rolls and all...were mediocre. The sushi rice was like paste rather than light and tasty. The fried rice was extremely overpriced (prob a few bucks to make) and very dry and not tasty. The steak in the rice was small pieces of meat and the dish just salty overall. The beer was over $10 for a bottle that is typically $7. The 15% gratuity fee wasn't for tip! Maybe it is because we are from NYC, but this place is not worth it. Nothing like the spirit of Omikase. Cannot even imagine what that would've been like. We went back to our hotel and had leftover pizza from lunch. We are New Yorkers who have eaten at some of the best Japanese restaurants with fresh Wasabi grated at our table. This place was not even close. Shocked they have the audacity to be so overpriced.More

Another great experience!! We have been visiting this area for many years and have always loved Omakase. The food was exceptional. Creative and so flavorful!!! Mylene is the chef and very attentive. Our waiter Eloi was very friendly and professional making it a relaxing and...fun evening!! The Manchebo Special roll is always a favorite and as good as ever. For our second roll we branched out and tried the Surf and Turf roll. It was amazing. As always the tempura shrimp appetizer was the best we have ever had. We will be back.

Chef Lapinid has taken sushi to a new level. She puts a tremendous amount of love into all she does. My wife and I did the Chef’s Choice and I highly recommend it. Chef will give you a tremendous 4 course meal and each course...is tremendous. There’s a big surprise in her sushi, but you have to try it yourself to get her secret and I promise it is well worth if. Try the Japanese whiskey to go with it, it’s smooth and an easy drink. I can’t rate this place and Chef high enough. Go try it, you won’t be disappointed!More

My husband and I had the pleasure of sitting at Chef Mylene Lapinid Sushi bar on our honeymoon. When we made reservations for Omakase we were unaware that the popular "paella night" was happening at Ike's so we were the only two people at the...bar - lucky us! We chose the Omakase (4-course) option and Chef Lapinid took us on quite the sushi adventure! Everything we tasted was incredibly fresh and flavorful. She also shared with us a little bit about her journey to Manchebo and all of the reasons she loves working there. We loved hearing her story and made us an even bigger fan of Manchebo! It sounds like they really took care of their wonderful staff during the pandemic, kudos! Thank you, Chef, for the delicious meal and fabulous company. We look forward to seeing you again!More

As New Yorkers and sushi lovers, we were a bit hesitant to go after seeing some of these reviews. But it was THE BEST decision we ever made!!!! The sushi was absolutely delicious. The sashimi melted in your mouth. Such fresh fish. Yes, the service...was a bit slow. But you have only 2 waiters working and running between 2 restaurants and a bar. Have some sympathy. The wait didn’t bother us at all. We told them we were celebrating our anniversary and Eloi took care of us right away. We were pleasantly surprised when he waited until we were the last people in the restaurant to bring out an anniversary dessert and ever brought out another one after we finished!!!! The chef even came out and wished us a happy anniversary. We have been to some of the most expensive sushi restaurants in NYC, including Nobu. And this has been the best experience we have ever had. We will definitely come back again. Thank you for the best anniversary ever!!!More

It’s a restaurant of Manchebo resort, we are not staying there, they caught my eyes cuz I found their reviews were good on TripAdvisor, plus you can make a reservation via opentable which makes it easier for me, so I booked them. But since the...first second we told them we were not the hotel guests, the front desk even asked me where we stayed, does it really matter where we stay? And she even asked if we minded sitting by the bar? Hello? We have a minor here 😒 after we sat down, we waited 20 minutes to place the order, it wasn’t busy, 5 tables included us? and they had 2 servers. Since we arrived yesterday, we’ve been having wonderful time, everybody was so nice, Aruba is beautiful, but experience at this restaurant just decreased the nice impressions I have. But it’s okay, we still love Aruba, and we’ll still love to visit again, but just won’t choose this restaurant, I guess they don’t care anyway, cuz we won’t be this hotel’s guests lolMore

Beautiful sushi and sashimi that tastes so fresh you might as well have caught it with your hands that morning. The chef, Mylene, is a rock star. Beautifully prepared dishes and if you’re lucky enough to get a seat at the bar where she creates...each dish, you’re in for a treat. When she informed us she also made the beautiful green tea crème brûlée we had for dessert, we were floored.
