Description: Ike’s Bistro boasts a delicious menu of chef’s specialties. While Mediterranean at heart, it is inspired by Caribbean ingredients. 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.

We went to Ike's every morning for breakfast and once for dinner during our stay. It was a bit overpriced (as most hotel food tends to be), but still very good food overall. I opted for an a la carte breakfast rather than the buffet, and the food came out hot and well prepared. The dinner there was also delicious.

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!

A group of us (6) went to dinner and everyone one was more than pleased. I had the ceviche and avocado appetizer and seabass for the main course ... it was devine. My husband had the Argentine beef and it melted in your mouth. Someone else got the Mahi-Mahi and it was devine. The others got a pasta dish with different meats ... one had chicken, another shrimp, etc. Everyone raved about their meal. This is a wonderful restaurant and we sat outside by the pool!

We had dinner here 2 nights. We were only planning on 1 night but it was so good the 1st night we went back for more. We had the 4 course chefs selection both nights. We were given dishes we probably would not have chosen ourselves & they were delicious. Not a drop left on any of the 8 courses we had. The 1st night they even gave us 2 different desserts to share. We sat poolside which was very romantic. The service was excellent as was all of the staff at manchebo.
Everyone was very attentive & friendly. The buffet breakfast was also very good. Will definitely eat there on our next trip!!

Ike's bistro is located at the Manchebo Beach resort. Tables are set up around the pool. Very nice ambience. We were lucky, that night (monday) Ike's had a very nice Lobster menu. I decided to have the lobster salad and the risotto with Lobster. My wife had the crab cake and the red snapper.
We liked the quality, taste and presentation of our plates. Chef Ever is a very promising chef. The service is friendly, but should be a little more professional. We would love to come back sometime !!
