“A Great Dining Experience In Aruba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful dinner at Ike's Bistro. The atmosphere was beautiful
and the food was delicious and very nicely presented. Our server, Stephanie, was very attentive and gave us excellent service.
Our table was by the pool.... just lovely. Truly a beautful setting.

We ordered the Filets, which were excellent, as well at the Ahi Tuna, th Sea Bass and the Salmon. We liked the salmon the least, but the other fishes were excellent.

Also had some excellent salads and some yummy desserts,
But the hit of the night was the White Gaspacho (sp??) soup! It was so
good that one of us ordered 2 bowls!!! It was really great!!

There were 6 of us at this meal and we ALL were very happy with our
meals and this restaurant.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We have tried Ikes bistro twice now in the last 6 months. the first time I had risotto and it was very salty, so they took it off of our check.
The second time we went for Lobster night, my sister and I both had Surf & Turf, the lobster tail was very small and the whole meal was cold. The service was quite slow so I can only assume that the chef prepared it and it was a while before they brought it to the table.
The gave us our sweet free of charge.
However I would rather pay full price for a good meal than get reductions on the check. As I have gone there to eat a good meal not get the check reduced.
Won't be going back to Ikes sorry Bill and after you had told us how great the Lobster night would be.

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We were staying at Casa del Mar and wanted to find a restaurant close by. We hit the jackpot. Ike's is located in the Mancebo Beach Hotel. It was refreshing to find a menu that did not have the standard fish, steaks etc. Many of the dishes had a Mediterranean flair with an Aruban touch. Every course was delicious. Our waiter was helpful and attentive. My wife and I ate pool side and watched as the evening colors faded to dark. It was a lovely evening and we will certainly return to Ike's.
