Description: Ike’s Bistro boasts a delicious menu of chef’s specialties. While Mediterranean at heart, it is inspired by Caribbean ingredients and chef Ever de Peña his passion for avant-garde fusion ideas. With seating in the garden terrace or around the tropical pool, the experience is enchanting and all menu items are extremely enticing. Let the chef surprise you with his 4-course tasting menu accompanied with a great selection of wines from the Mediterranean and the Americas.

“Nice setting around the pool!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

My husband and I tried the bistro for the first time. We enjoyed our dinner very much, though it was a bit odd that we were served by at least 5 servers.

“Linda and Ray”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We stopped in without reservations and found that the whole dining experience was exceptional for our large group (10) from the drinks to the variety of appetizers and entrees that we shared. The service was excellent and the pace of the dinner was perfect giving us all time to enjoy the saxophonist and the view. Chef Ever de Pena provided us with a delicious taste of risotto with tomato sauce and shaved Parmesan and later made the rounds to ask how we enjoyed our evening and if we had any suggestions. We will make this a regular stop on our annual visits.

“Great meals”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

What a chef, attention to detail on every plate. Service was quick and they were very nice.
If you are not all inclusive you may be shocked at the pricing. This is not a cheap place to eat and not a inexpensive island.

“Valentines Day 2013”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

First time here for myself and the wife. The bistro is co-located with the Machebo Resort. We were seated outdoors by the pool where we enjoyed the beautiful sunset. For dinner we had he sea bass and a filet with shrimp. Both dishes were very good. however the service was extremely slow.

“Wonderful food and lovely service”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

No dislikes for this one. Food was excellent and staff were wonderful. After eating at Ike's the first night we ended up eating there 3 of 5 nights. And that's coming from a couple of people who were looking forward to experiencing a variety of dining in Aruba. Just didn't find the need to go elsewhere as often as we'd expected.
