My wife and I have frequented Simply Fish/ Atardi over the years and have had a wonderful time.
The music was very good and typically we would arrive about a half hour before sunset to take a sunset selfie or a very accomodating staff would offer to take a photo. The lump crab cake was really good.... no filler. My wife Pat had the bouliabase which was delicious. I had the lobster tail/ filet mignon which was delicious. The potatoes were barely warm, the filet was a perfect medium and the lobster tail while delicious was a bit overcooked.
I think that the meal could have benefitted from a quicker kitchen to table service.
At one time the meals used to be served piping hot by covering the meal to present a hot meal tableside, which is always expected.

Macadamia snapper was best ever. Tuna excellent. 10 feet from water line on the beach at sunset. Can't beat that.

Lovely dinners On the beach right next to the water. Take your shoes off and stick your toes in the water or dance to mellow romantic songs as the sun sinks into the sea in front of you. At the upscale Marriott with a casino steps away for after dinner fun. It is pricey, but worth it. You can easily spend as much elsewhere with far less ambiance. Menu is a bit limited but everything we’ve tried was a bit adventuresome, but very good. (Macadamia nut crusted grouper with book choy or roast lamb with pumpkin hash). Everything is cooked to specification too.

Overall it was good with some constructive feedback. The beach ambience is awesome but it seems silly to have a great steel drummer playing beautiful music while having some guy on the other side of the restaurant doing some quiz night with a super loud mic and music so we couldn’t even hear the drummer. Service seems a bit under staffed overall too so it was slow as the waiters run up and down the beach, it doesn’t look easy!

A wonderful view- but that is where the fun stopped! We waited over an hour for our meals- 2 out of 3 came out cold!!! Pasta should never be served cold- so very disappointed! Then when I looked on trip advisor- all the recent reviews were exactly what we experienced!! Cold food with a very long wait!! We will not recommend this restaurant to friends and family- and we will not return ourselves!! In Aruba there are many restaurants that take pride in their service to tourists! Don’t go- there are so many other great restaurants that cater to excellence!!

We had a 8:30 dinner reservation after being seated it took 15 minutes before we saw any waitstaff and at was only the water and bread server . The actual waiter took another10 to 15 minutes. I don’t know if the restaurant was understaffed or what the problem was .

We had a beautiful dinner last evening at Atardi. The atmosphere was stunning: beautiful seaside table on the beach, talented singer and trumpet player provided lovely, romantic music enhancing the pretty restaurant setting.

Each dish was delicious and beautifully prepared. We followed our waiter’s suggestions and loved the seafood soup, lobster salad, octopus appetizer, grouper and sea bass entrees. Our waiter recommended an excellent Pinot Noir wine. Definitely have the coconut cake for dessert. It was so creamy and not too sweet or rich!

We highly recommend Atardi for a wonderful, relaxing and delicious dinner in Aruba!

If you visited under the Simply Fish name in past years, Atardi is a better than ever dining experience!!!

Food, service and atmosphere were great. Eating with your table sitting on the beach is a great experience, however the sand is uneven and it is challenging to move your chairs etc. other than that it’s a fun thing to do
