    Eten is TOP! Bediening, ze zijn heel vriendelijk maar totaal geen verstand van het eten of wijn. Geen uitleg van wat je eet en al helemaal niet van wat je drinkt! Voorgerecht: ik kreeg mijn voorgerecht, we hadden nog geen wijn, mijn partner had nog geen voorgerecht want ze dachten dat we het voorgerecht deelde, terwijl we zelf ons eten bestelden. Wijn: wij bestelde een dure fles wijn en kregen een hele andere die we zelf niet hadden gekozen. Kurk van de fles verdween met kurkentrekker en al in de dame haar schort. Is ons niet medegedeeld dat we een hele andere kregen. Ze had geen idee wat ze schonk en of wij dat wilde vertellen? Achteraf bleek onze wijn die we wilden niet in het systeem te staan? Bij betalen was een super onvriendelijke dame die niet begreep wat wij aan tip wilden geven, moesten het zelfs voorrekenen. MAAR, voor heerlijk eten moet je echt hier zijn, geweldig!! Top koks!!

    We did not even get to eating. Incredibly undertrained host was so rude that we walked out. In November we came and had a nice experience so we decided to return for my wife’s 40th birthday yesterday. What a mistake. The restaurant was completely empty but host wanted to put us at this very tiny table butted up to chiefs station and waitress stand. We asked to move, even know the place was empty she needed to check in her iPad and talk it over with the 6 kids standing around. After she consulted with them we were moved to another table which we were fine with. Once we sat the table was a wobbler which the host told me they would fix. Five minutes passed and no one has come to fix it even though there are 6 kids still gathered together in the corner. A waitress came and we explained to her about the table because it didn’t seem that the host comprehended what we told her. So The waitress went to talk with her and in Spanish my wife heard the host say that we are complaining about everything. At that point we walked out. It was to much for the host to comprehend that a table wobbles from time to time and is an east fix. Aruba has so many great restaurants, with great wait staff. I will never return to this place that has a very untrained staff.

    Great selection to choose from. Price better than expected. Panko shrimp and peanut salad was outstanding. Grilled tuna and kingfish were cooked to perfection. I enjoyed both of the owners coming around to my table to make sure everything was done to our liking. If there was one word to describe the experience here it would be quality. I highly recommend.

    A high quality restaurant with tasty an well done dishes. The wine list is interesting with a couple top wines. Two issues though, the tempo in servings are to high, not enough time between cocktail, starter and entree. Secondly the red wine was serve with a high temperature making it less tasteful. Even tough Lima Bistro is worth a visit.

    First time dining at Lima Bistro. We found the food to be very good, drinks were also good. Service was a bit slow and it’s a pricy menu. Located in the harbor area it’s a very nice place for a date night diner.

    A new kid on the block and I have to say what a nice one to have! I have already been there a couple of time so this time asked the chef to surprise me with a veggie menu. Oh my the tempura veggie was just to die for. Loved it! The main was a risotto which was ok. And some wonderful cocktails to end the evening. Guests enjoyed it a lot. One piece of advise, don’t ever let your customers feel like they have to leave so you can re-sell the table..ever. Overall great evening and already planning the next visit 👌🏽

    Nice addition to Aruba fine dining options. Very unique and tasty food. Pricey. Tables fairly close together inside if you’re concerned. Best to try to sit outside as its right on the water. Limited menu options so don’t go if you’re picky. Crowd is mostly from the island so it must be known as a good spot. Hard to get a taxi back to hotel.

    I requested the table at the window and couldnt get it as this was previously requested by another customer which I respect. After half an hour, still the table (at the window) was empty…. Two hours later same… The waitress could have at least offered us to move there. I wasnt Waw by the service…

    We have heard many positive reviews and were anxious to try Lima Bistro. Our visit was a bit disappointing…Service was excellent, ambience was great (we dined outside) Appetizers were very nice, but our main courses were disappointing. I ordered the fish of the day (barracuda) and my wife ordered lomito. Both meals were “okay”, but certainly didn’t have the “Wow” factor we were anticipating. We thought the menu prices were overpriced for the product. We wish the establishment continued success (love seeing downtown being revived) And that is just our opinion!

    Lima bistro exceeded my expectations. From the graciousness of our server Demi, to every course we had including the lobster appetizer and a shrimp appetizer special, the pork belly entrée, the Picanha entrée and the strawberry bacon meringue dessert everything was exceptional. I couldn’t recommend this restaurant enough, but don’t want to too much because then it’ll be hard for me to get a reservation lol
