This restaurant is ON the beach in front of the Marriott Hotel in Aruba.
You can remove your shoes upon arrival and walk in the sand.
Check for the time of sunset before you make your reservation and make your reservation for 30 minutes before sunset. WHAT A VIEW !!!!! Food and service are excellent. No bugs!!

This was one of the best meals we had in Aruba. A terrific seafood place right on the beach . The fish was incredible (we had the macadamia crusted grouper and the red snapper). The sides were delicious too (bok choy and red curry). My only regret is that we didn't find it earlier in our stay as we would have gone back for a second time.
I would not recommend this restaurant at ...
I would not recommend this restaurant at all. We tried Atardi as a different place to go in Aruba during our vacation and regretted it. Apart from the charm of dining on the beach there was nothing to recommend and we have been to far better beachfront restaurants that cost the same or less. The food was mediocre from apps to desert, the service only so-so and it was not crowded so there was no good reason for the shortcomings. It was even a struggle to get the check at the end of the evening.
This is our fourth straight year coming to Aruba in August and we have been to most of the better restaurants with consistently good to excellent results. Our advice is to go elsewhere.

I think this was one of the most memorable meals I had in Aruba. We went on Saturday night, the music was a single guitarist, playing very romantic, relaxing covers. The food was absolutely amazing, dish after dish, Tuna Carpaccio, Mahi Mahi, and Grouper with Coconut Rice and Plantains. Wow, and dessert that Chocolate Tart, with vanilla ice cream was to die for. Perfect meal, perfect ambiance, we even danced on the sand as our table was on the beach. I would highly recommend this place, and the staff couldn't be friendlier.

Amazing!!! The grouper is the best fish on the menu and if your not into fish the beef tenderloin is out of this world! Beautiful view. Make sure to see the sunset as you dine. The service is amazing and they had a great musician playing as well!!!

The winds can gust sometimes. It can make it hard to keep everything on the table. : ) I almost lost my menu to the ocean. The staff does an excellent job to accommodate the breeze though. Be prepared to take your shoes off. Food was excellent. Staff was excellent. Great evening.

Atardi restaurant was a great experience and a perfect setting to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The ambiance was very romantic and the staff was excellent; they even took a few pictures to help capture our special occasion. The food was delicious: from the special complimentary dish from the chef to the creme bruelle dessert. I highly reccommend it for couples looking for a romantic dining experience.

The ambiance is beautiful and the service was great. The food was very expensive and their wasn't a big selection. The prices were very expensive super expensive and OMG are you kidding me. We didn't have desert because we didn't want to break the bank so we went inside and had desert buy 1 get one free and it as delicious.
What an amazing find for our last dinner ...
What an amazing find for our last dinner in Aruba. From removing our shoes all the way until the end of the meal everything was perfect. Attentive and friendly servers all while maintaining the upscale dining vibe at the beach. Toes in the sand, delicious food, not a care in the world. One of our favorite Aruba memories for sure.
One of a kind Island Experience
If you are staying at the Marriott high rises this is a no brainier. If not, take a cab over to Atardi. Wear your flip flops because you are dining on the beach. White tablecloth dining with the view of the moon lit Caribbean Sea with the occasional tiki torch to add ambience. The service is very attentive. Oscar, bent over backwards to make our evening enjoyable. The menu is largely seafood and is sourced locally. We all enjoyed grouper, lobster tails, shrimp and scallops. We had a nice bottle of wine for $47 (not bad). While we were there a marriage proposal happened. There is also a singer in the background . Being from the Boston area - dining on white sandy beaches is not an option. While in Aruba - take advantage. It is a bit pricey but hey it's vacation.

Unique sunset dining experience! Our table was merely feet from the ocean. It was very picturesque. The food was delicious; the peanut butter chocolate dessert was to die for! The pace of the meal was just right. The live entertainment was tasteful and added to the romantic setting. A highlight of our first Aruban vacation.

Atardi was brillant. The food was delicious and the view was unbeatable. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the surf and turf. When we cut through our steaks it was like cutting through butter. Simply beautiful! My husband and I were on our honeymoon and they even sent over champagne to celebrate! The staff was wonderful as well! definitely recommend Atardi! We can't wait to return.
My wife and I were seated earlier than our reservation plus we were seated at the waters edge. Just happened that the sunset was spectacular. The grouper was the freshest most well prepared fish I have ever had. Price was a little high but worth it.
Beautiful restaurant on the beach with great food
This is a beautiful spot to have dinner. We had reservations at 6:15 and that was the perfect time to be able to capture before the sunset and during the sunset. The food was delicious. I got the lobster tail and had a martini that had champagne in it (can't remember the name). My husband ordered the steak and also enjoyed it. The only drawbacks were that the chairs were not that comfortable and while one of our waiters were great, the other was not as good.
On the beach
Over the past years, have eaten here 3 times. It is very convenient if you are staying on Palm Beach in any of the Marriott/Ritz Carlton Properties. Its a relaxing spot and very casual with dining right on the beach. They can even set a table for cocktails in the surf while you wait. Food was good, and a decent value. If you are in the area, and want a nice place along with the ocean and outdoor photo, than a great choice.
Quite a surprise!
Went to restaurant last minute and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful romantic table on the beach near the water and meal was best so far and we've been to many of the "other top restaurants" in Aruba. My girlfriend had the filet which was melt in your mouth with a side of gratin potatoes and green beans and I had a pan fried macademian crusted grouper with bok choy, black quinoa chaufa in a creamy red curry sauce. Grouper was cooked perfect and curry sauce flawless. Highly recommend!!!
