Let our chefs surprise you with the 4-course tasting menu, accompanied by a savvy selection of wines from the Mediterranean and the Americas.
We had an excellent experience at Ike's Bistro. The food was very good and the ambiance was beautiful dining poolside. It was a little bit challenging for a minute finding it but all was great.
Two words come to mind: romance and beauty. We were seated by the pool, the service was excellent, and the music was romantic and relaxing. There were no large groups - mostly couples like my wife and me, and we had a romantic evening in Aruba. Oh by the way, the food was fantastic. I had the braised ribs and literally licked the plate clean. My wife had a salad with tuna, hard-boiled eggs, and everything else you could imagine in an extraordinary mix with a dressing to die for (not literally). We would highly recommend adding Ike's to your itinerary in Aruba.
Incredibles service and delicious food! Tons of vegan options! Beautiful atmosphere! What a perfect place to celebrate my birthday. I recommend this place to everyone!
We visited Ike’s for the Paella night. The service was outstanding, the ambiance was on point but the food was just okay. The paella was dried out, even after the chef made a fresh batch. Being that was the main attraction to eat at Ike’s, I was fairly disappointed. For the cost of dinner I expected higher quality.
Great ambiance, sunset at poolside, live music. Paella was very good, we were not expecting the other buffet items and dessert! The beef stew was wonderful.
I would visit again.
Family trip to Aruba
We ate at Ike's Bistro twice during our Aruban vacation. Our waitress, Stephanie was fantastic! Great food (including numerous vegan options), great views, great music and a wonderful overall atmosphere.
The vegan dishes were out of this world! The chickpea avocado tartar was one of the tastiest things I have eaten. They even had vegan butter for their most delicious bread!
Great plant based food options. Since the remodeling, making the restaurant open to the pool, the restaurant also has a great feel
As someone who eats plant based food, it’s do an exceptional job with vegan food. A fairly large vegan menu with lots of options. Highly recommended
Excellent food! Wonderful atmosphere. Great live music with saxophone.
The food was exceptional. The hostess was amazing. The waitresses were not as attentive and were to fast to take our plates when we weren't done.
Service was excellent. Presentation and food preparation was very well done and deserves high accolades
Ate here on my last night in Aruba. I ordered the Ceviche to start and the Duck Leg as an entree. The food was delicious. The ambiance is wonderful at night, as we sat poolside and enjoyed a light live vocal soundtrack. Our server, Stephanie was terrific and made great recommendations. I enjoyed the Elderflower cocktail and wish I could recreate the recipe at home. Ike’s was a terrific punctuation to end a splendid week in Aruba.
I don’t recommend this restaurant. Paella was a buffet for the masses instead of a personalized experience. A sweaty server used a handkerchief to dry himself, never washed his hands and continue tending tables. The food was not good and it was expensive, low value.
Wonderful evening, delicious food, excellent service. We visit every time we are in Aruba.
This was our third time dining here while vacationing in Aruba. The past two experiences were excellent, but unfortunately my food selection, the fresh fish of the day, grilled red snapper, was terrible- burnt and dried out like leather. My husband had a seafood assortment which was good, except the 3 scallops, which were a little undercooked.
The manager stopped by my table to find out what was wrong with my food, which was barely touched. I explained and he took it off the bill. We did have delicious appetizers first, goat cheese and watermelon and spanikopita.
I would still return again, and try other menu items, because previous times were very good.
Probably the best food we had on Eagle Beach. The octopus and squid appetizer was excellent as was the shrimp appetizer. Their presentation was very appealing. The salads were unique, well portioned and very delicious.
We were extremely pleased with everything about Ike's Bistro. We went there on our first night in Aruba this trip. We sat poolside - the perfect setting. Our server was congenial, pleasant, and very helpful. The food was delicious. My husband had a seafood entree that he raved about. We plan to return on our next trip to Aruba.
Een nieuwe ontdekking op ons eiland. Waarom zijn we hier nooit eerder geweest?
Heerlijk gegeten. Alle gerechten even goed bereid, vol van smaak en mooi gepresenteerd. Er zitten heel verrassende gerechten tussen. Niet de dertien in een dozijn die je op veel plekken ziet.
We zaten sfeervol aan het zwembad. Zeker toen de zon onder was, was het een heel fijne plek.
De bediening was hartstikke goed. Jerome bediende onze tafel, als ik me niet vergis. Deze jongen verdient een hoog cijfer voor zijn stage.
De cocktailkaart bevat een aantal originele drankjes.
Aanrader! Wij komen zeker terug.
We always have a very nice dinner at Ike's Bistro. The food is great, as is the service and ambiance. We usually eat outside but they also have indoor seating. We went with the duck and tenderloin and it was cooked to perfection and tasty. You will not be disappointed!
Food was good but my table reservation didn't seem to matter because walk ins had taken all the poolside tables which I had requested on our first night in Aruba. This happened several more times during our 12 day stay. So here's the tip the 5 - 5:30 pm early bird walk ins get the best tables in empty restaurants everywhere in Aruba. Not the way reservations are supposed to work.
We had Ike's on 2 separate occasions. The service was outstanding. The food was also outstanding for the most part. The seafood of my husband's dish was slightly overdone. Overall, really pretty good.
Amazing location, eats under stars surrounded by nice music, beautiful pool, an a amazing ambient, service was good, also the food does.
Wine is expensive compare to the quality’s, but the place is wonderful to enjoy a big table with the family.
Get some sandwiches before in order to not get out hungry because portions are small. (Lol)
Second trip to ike’s In three days. Once again, an awesome meal. We opted for the plant based menu and had two exceptional meals, highly recommended
As repeat diners we have never Ben disappointed. Love sitting by the pool
Our best meal during our trip to Aruba.
Entertainment by solo singer, Lucre Houtman, was excellent! Highly Recommend.
Enjoyed dinner twice during my stay. The staff is friendly and kind. Thanks to Ana Libia, Dyanell, Elton and Carmen for their hospitality.
Now that it’s open to the upgraded pool, ike’s has a great feel. Really nice view and ambiance especially near the pool. Our party includes both plant based diet and non plant based. Offer a huge vegan menu and a great standard menu. Highly recommended
Delicious buffet. Very conscientious wait staff. Favorites were tomato soup and fruit flambé.
Excellent meal and experience! Food was inventive and delicious. Jason and Stephany provided superior service and Junior was an amazing chef who put his heart into his work. Would highly recommend!
Ana Libya waited on us and was absolutely terrific-so sweet and helpful!!
My husband's most favorite new vegetarian restaurant on the island!!! The staff were amazing even when my meal had an unfortunate issue they over compensated to make it over and to make us happy!!!
Have already made several referrals to friends to go dine there- ask to sit around the pool side and enjoy the entertainment. Very special evening - thank you!!!
Beautiful setting by the pool
Saw the sunset and then low light ambiance
Food was very good and our waiter Dyanell did a fantastic job !
First time dining at Ike’s Bistro and it did not disappoint. Found and service are first rate. Our server Dyanell Elton was terrific. I highly recommend.
Beautiful setting by the pool. We dined during paella night. Wide variety of very tasty food. Service was a little slow, but not enough to ruin the evening. Price was very affordable. Would definitely dine here again.
Ikes is one of our favorite spots in Aruba. Excellent food and presentation. The chef brings you a small appetizer before your meal.
Went for lobster night. Food was ok. Service was very good.
