Breezy Poolside Dining

Serving breakfast and dinner, open-air Ike’s Bistro serves a Mediterranean-inspired menu, amped up with fresh, flavorful Caribbean ingredients. Executive Chef Ever de Peña’s skill and confidence shine through in dish after imaginative dish, all expertly crafted to showcase each ingredient’s taste, texture and complexity. Like the cuisine, the setting is exquisite – a refined yet rustic mix of recyclable materials, including Caribbean coral stone columns, seagrass rugs, rattan and bamboo furnishings and custom light fixtures fashioned from island driftwood.

Manchebo mornings begin with breakfast served poolside at Ike’s or on your private balcony. Order a la carte from a menu featuring vitamin-packed fresh fruit smoothies, asparagus and goat cheese omelets and coconut fresh toast (to name just a few) or enjoy an expansive buffet of fresh tropical fruit, house-made granola, organic oatmeal and muesli, yogurts, eggs, and fresh baked breads served with sweet butter and local papaya jam. In the evening, Peña’s seasonal Mediterranean-Caribbean menu is complemented by a new four-course Chef’s Tasting Menu inspired solely on fresh finds at the market.

Ikes Ever de Pena

Meet our Chef

Ever de peña

One of the island’s youngest and most accomplished chefs, Venezuela-born Executive Chef Ever de Peña began cooking at 15, when he began a five-year apprenticeship program combining school and hands-on training in some of Aruba’s finest restaurants. Dubbed the island’s culinary “young gun,” he’s known for clean flavors, simple presentation and a razor-sharp focus on quality.

At Manchebo, dinner begins at dawn. That’s how early Executive Chef Ever de Peña starts planning the evening’s four-course Chef’s Tasting menu. As the sun rises off Eagle Beach, you’ll find him at the market or already in the kitchen, dreaming up inventive courses that showcase the day’s freshest ingredients.

It is toooooo good!
Locals recommend this place for a cozy upscale dinner and it did not disappoint. We went there on our first night in Aruba and boy it started a new relationship with the island and specially with the cuisine and chefs!
