Staying at Manchebo Beach Resort, we decided to dine at Ike's as we had heard excellent reviews from guests. The young and talented chef, Ever De Peria, was highly acclaimed in local literature as presenting a modern twist of Mediterranean and Caribbean style.
Although we did not have reservations, our request to sit poolside was quickly granted. The pool is nicely lit and lends to a beautiful and romantic atmosphere. Our waiter, Shane, was very attentive and explained the specials for the evening. He was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and explained everything thoroughly. We decided on the "Catch of the Day" which was grouper and the "Home-made Pasta" which was fettuccini and shrimp. Both entrees were cooked perfectly and were excellent.
The atmosphere was made more romantic by the sounds of Lucio playing the saxophone, a nice addition to a wonderful dining experience. Our leisurely dinner by the pool, dancing to the sounds of Lucio made for the perfect evening.
We are looking forward to returning to Ike's Bistro on our next trip to Aruba!
