Aruba Marriott’s beachfront restaurant Atardi is the best kept secret on the island. It is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner, a place where you can be delighted by magnificent sunsets, exquisite meals under the fluttering palm trees, and feel the warmth of the sand between your toes. Atardi allows you to sit back and connect with all your senses as you listen to the sound of the ocean. Although their specialty is seafood, Atardi’s chefs take pride in knowing how to please meat lovers as well. The secret is out. You must come by.

Service was great and so was the food. There was a live musician so I ranked the noise level moderate but it was still quiet enough to have a good conversation.

Fantastic food! The ambience is beautiful because you are dining right on the beach. If you can be there at sunset it can be breath taking!

Food was OK. There are so many other places with better food. The setting on the beach under the stars was fabulous. The service was no existent. I took a half hour after we were seated to “find” wait staff to get a cocktail. Water glasses were never refilled.
If you are thinking Atardi - i would skip it and go elsewhere

Amazing scenery with the opportunity to eat on the beach, but so so food. Your also going to feel like you are rushed to finish if you eat past ~7:15pm. The staff is quick to clear tables after 8pm from the beach. I’d look for better options if given the chance again.

Hands down the best dining experience I ever had. Dining at sunset directly on the beach was amazing. What made the experience far exceed expectations was the impeccable above and beyond service. The food was outstanding, best seafood in Aruba (and we have been coming to the island for years). Will definitely be back!

Best experience me and my boyfriend ever had. Service, ambiance and the whole setting was just perfect. Weather was breezy and best of all no mosquitoes or bugs! Aruba has the best weather! Service was excellent, our waiter was very attentive. However, food portion was small in which I think the price is a little expensive. Food was good don't get me wrong but portion wise I think it is pricey. Nonetheless, it is on the resort so price is as expected. Overall, we had a wonderful time.

If u r in Aruba, u must go to this restaurant. Everything is great: setting, service and food. You sit by the water,
feet in the sand. The menu has a lot varieties. We had the tropical bouillabaisse and the burrata. Both were excellent.
Then we had the grouper and mahi mahi: perfect. The food is very well presented and super tasty. Our waiters gave us great service. They made sure thru out the meal that we had everything we needed. I loved the hand shake after we paid the bill. Oh and u get so yummy mints too. If u r looking for a cheap dinner this isn’t it. The prices r on the high but the food is worth what u r paying for. If u want to endulge, this is the place.

This place was fantastic. We had two waiters - one of which, Carlos, was just BEYOND fantastic. Super attentive and helpful. Great recommendations. And then the view, wow. On the water was just another level.

And the food - the food was some of the best I had in Aruba. The grouper, the scallops, the short ribs. All amazing. We had three main courses between the two of us - and we just couldn't get enough. The food was just that amazing. I cannot recommend it enough.

We also had dessert - even though we were stuffed - and we got even more stuffed because we couldn't get enough of the apples and ice cream.

THIS IS A MUST VISIT. I recommend getting a reservation for a half hour to 45 minutes before sunset so you can watch the sun set during dinner.

Great ambiance, service was excellent. We showed up on time and they sat us within a few minutes of arriving. We were not happy with the taste of all our entrees, the flavors did not meld together. My wife and two daughters did not complete their entire meal. However, the deserts were decent. Our servers were excellent and were around when we needed them.

Beautiful setting, outstanding service and exquisite cuisine.
Loved the barefoot experience and watching the sun setting.
Our fish was fresh and tasty, I asked for my mahi-mahi grilled rather than blackened and it was perfect. My husband tried a new fish, corvina, and he was happy with that!
Atardi is a must if you are vacationing in Aruba!

Ate here our last night in Aruba and it was lovely. We were nervous the wind would interrupt a lot of dinner but it wasn’t much of an issue. We made a reservation as it was completely booked two nights prior. Would definitely go back again.

The setting was lovely. We were greeted promptly by a server. The food and beverage service was timely and the waiter was very nice. The food was different. My scallops were in a gravy and it was not very appetizing or tasty. There were approximately four small cubes of polenta. The scallops were chewy. The dessert was the best part. The appetizers were good but the entrees left much to be desired.
