First off - we didn't stay at this resort and getting a reservation wasn't an issue. When I say impeccable service and food!! My husband who is vegan couldn't stop raving about this restaurant. From their appetizers, entrees and desserts he was in vegan heaven!...Trust me - any dietary needs they have something for everyone! Carlos & Mackayla were extremely helpful and the best servers there- make sure you look for them! Do yourself a favor and just GO!! FYI - it's cashless .More

Wow and amazing are what describe Ike's. Me and my wife's visited over new years 2022 and we were greeted with beautiful live music, great ambiance and a pool side view. We had the pleasure of being served by our delightful server named Stephanie. Stephanie...was the best sever in Aruba during our stay. She gave the perfect suggestions for food and drinks. My wife is vegan and this place had many options that were to die for from appetizers, to main entry and even desserts. My wife was suggested the lentil steak dish and it was so good we had to visit Ike's twice to taste it again. Chef Jonathan selections are a must have as his plating/presentation and flavors of Aruba were exquisite. When in Aruba vegan or not IKe's is a must visit. We will definitely visit Ike's again on our next visit to Aruba.More

Food was delicious, presentation was appealing. Setting was great--a covered patio overlooking the pool and beach. They had vegan options too. Live steel drum music to set the atmosphere. Expensive, but not overly so. Good service. Definitely recommended for a quiet evening out pampering yourself.More

Dined in the garden area where you could order off two different menus. Both loaded with wonderful options. Our server, Harold, was wonderful and attentive. We were a party of 3 and all of us enjoyed our meals. As an added surprise the chef that...evening sent over a sample appetizer and at the end of the meal we received complimentary limoncello. Between the beautiful atmosphere, the delicious meal and Harold, it was a lovely evening. Make sure to ask for Harold if you dine here. You won't be disappointed.More

Literally the BEST food we had during our vacation, we were so blown away. We had no idea that this place existed because it never popped up during our restaurant research. When you view it on Google Maps, it just says seafood restaurant. That alone...wouldn’t get me to click on it because we are vegetarian. But my husband opened up the menu anyway and thankfully we did because they have a full vegan selection, and gluten free options. We immediately made reservations and I’m so happy we did. Harold was our waiter and he was so friendly and welcoming. We had the Buffalo cauliflower appetizer, which was delicious. I had the Stuffed Corn Chips + Avocado and my Husband had the Truffle Porcini Risotto & Crispy Tofu. To 👏🏼 DIE 👏🏼 for 👏🏼 MUST GO! We will be back!More

Staying here with friends for a birthday celebration. Had a first night meal at Ike's once we arrived after a hellish travel day. Jason was our waiter and immediately realized we were tired and grumpy. His cheerful, fun demeanor immediately lightened up the mood and...helped end our very long (travel delays, canceled flight) arrival day end in a high note. The menu is so diverse and accommodating of any tastes and the atmosphere is peaceful and calm open air over looking the pool. Highly recommend.More

The food and service at Ike's is simply outstanding. We dined there two times but would have been happy going back every night. The pool-side dining experience was excellent we ordered a 3-course meal. Everything was paced well and served with a side of humor...from one of our favorite Manchebo staff members - Jason! He is seriously the best and took one of our favorite photos of our honeymoon; thank you Jason! We also had a romantic dinner on the beach. Carlos our waiter hustled back and forth from Ike's to the beach making sure everything was perfect including making special accommodations for my dairy allergy. Really appreciated! We look forward to dining at Ike's again on our anniversary trip!More

After waiting for what seemed like a long amount of time to be served, we were attended to and the meal was very good. Our waitress was rather friendly but didn’t explain what took so long to start serving us.
