Sushi
Omakase” which means "I'll leave it to you" (from Japanese "to entrust") In American English, 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 next to Ike's Bistro at the Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa and features an illuminated bar, comfortable seating, boutique feel and ambiance.

Had the Omakase menu, where chef determines what is served. The quality of the food was top notch and served by a friendly staff.

We are late for the restaurant, an hour before they closed. We did all sushi. They were out of a few things, but what they did have was pretty good. We went after finding it on Open Table, so we did not have the all-inclusive as we were staying somewhere else. It was good for an AL, but overall was just okay. The service was outstanding and the environment was very cool.

Delicious! We ordered the chef’s tasting menu. It was perfect and the chef came to our table many times to talk about the courses and to make sure we were enjoying the preparation of the food. We loved it! Our server, Jason, was a lot of fun and took care of us well.

Hello, the one thing that my wife and myself are complete opposites, when it comes to sushi, she enjoys everything cooked and I enjoy traditional raw sushi. We sat at the sushi bar with our chef Jonathan who suggested that we start with the miso soup that was seasoned perfectly ,then my wife had a fried rice dish with a surf and turf sushi roll which was cooked to perfection. I went for the traditional raw salmon, tuna and shrimp Roll, with fresh ginger and wasabi that was so delicious. We left with a beautiful dining experience, check it out if you have a chance ,it’s well worth it... thanks again, Jonathan.

a day agoNEW
To begin.. most of the food was delicious and the atmosphere was nice... but that's about the only positive things I have to say. We started by ordering 2 soups and the fried dumpling appetizer and then 2 orders of sushi. After finishing the sushi, we decided we wanted some more so we order two more rolls. About 20 minutes later, I saw them set one of them on the counter to be brought out, about 25 minutes after that, they had the other ready and tried to bring them to our table. So we had been waiting for 45+ minutes on this order of 2 rolls, and one of them had been sitting out for about a half hour. We politely declined these roles as we decided we were done at this point. We had also went without a drink refill for nearly 45 minutes at this time as well.
The restaurant wasn't busy.. there was another guy who went and told the waiter he had been waiting 1.5 hours on food and was leaving.

Had the service been good, we would likely go back another time or two.. but I highly doubt that we will.

Best part: the outside garden was private and perfect. Although nothing extraordinary, the sushi was good, but not worth the price. Felt like we could have gotten the same dishes for 1/2 the price outside of the resort area. Worst part: not exaggerating, it took exactly TWO HOURS for one small appetizer and three maki rolls to make it to our table. We missed the sunset and a walk home on the beach (beach curfew is 7pm currently) for our last night in Aruba. Total bummer.

Voor de tweede keer het Omakase menu, deze was hetzelfde als twee weken terug maar dit was geenszins storend - perfecte hoeveelheid eten, rustige omgeving, goede snelheid opdienen, en genoten van een prima Zinfandel ernaast!
Ik verwacht zomaar dat we dit nog een derde keer keer gaan doen binnenkort ;)

We ordered what chef chose, the combination for $55 which requires 2 people. It could have been a bit more special or unusual. It was simply crab salad, soup, roll sand desert. All quality food but nothing we could not have ordered ourselves.

Long waits in service. Our waiter had too many tables to properly serve. One sushi chef was overwhelmed but doing best she could under the circumstances. Ambiance and decor lacking. With so many good dining choices in Aruba, this will be in the bottom of my future list

I have frequented Aruba for many many years and have enjoyed so many restaurant.. fine dining and casual to little local homes in the walls.. but HAVE NEVER had such a negative experience as I’ve had with restaurants a Manchebo!
This particular evening was a special night for my husband & me.. and we requested while making the reservation to sit outside as I’d seen other diners eat sushi out in Ike’s the week before.
Our appetizers came and were delicious and service was fine at that point. Then time passed, and the waiter came to us to say our sushi would take a bit longer. That was fine as we figured our order was lost and everyone makes mistakes. Then 45 minutes passed and i caught the waiters attention “Still Checkinggg” was the response.
When it was 60 minutes, we were irritated and my husband went inside to inquire.
The manager came outside and instead of apologizing, she stated..and get ready fir this..”It was HER FAULT (meaning me ) because she wanted to sit outside!” !!!! 😳😳😳
Welll... all she had to say was was sorry for the mixup.. but THAT was so uncalled for and unprofessional!
Then.. there’s more... We asked for the bill and good thing I examined it... they double charged us on two different appetizers! !
I had her remove and was not happy about paying the automatic 15% service charge 😡
WORST EXPERIENCE EVER IN A RESTAURANT !!
DO NOT GO TO IKE’S OR OMAKASE
