    Our second visit in second week here- I have a suggestion perhaps translate your menu into English so patrons ( Americans) do not have to ask so many questions to your staff! Also we found the music last night Insipid abd too loud to hear each other seated inside. Other than these comments excellent food- see you next week

    Lima BistroResponded on November 18, 2022Hello Chaz. Thank you for your 5-star review. We enjoy explaining the ingredients of the dishes, which are inspired by the Chef's native country, Peru. Our aim is for culinary explorers, like yourself, to discover a piece of Lima, a touch of Aruba, and a twist of the world. We look forward to having you back next week.

    Highly, highly recommend: we have been 3 times so far and to put it simply, this restaurant is executing very well and the location excellent. This is the exact type of place we love to find when traveling. Additionally, twice now, we’ve been lucky enough to be seated with Nancy, who is absolutely wonderful and provides among the most thoughtful and hospitable service we’ve experienced anywhere throughout our travels. She was able to answer all our questions about the menus & also provided us great, local advice for our stay on the island. The cocktails are superb with unique twists. The menu is a well planned list of options, again executed very well, with the Peruvian touch that is so, so delicious. Summarily, do not pass on Lima Bistro. EAT HERE while in Aruba!
