Atardi [formerly Simply Fish] Ratings and Reviews
This is a very expensive restaurant. Th ...
This is a very expensive restaurant. The food is excellent, but be prepared to spend a lot of money while you are here. The wine list was just ok but again, the prices by the glass or the bottle were ambitious . I would have asked for a glass of Kim Crawford, but at $14 USD a glass or just wasn't worth it.
The other issue is the lighting. It was so dark at the table that it was difficult to see the menu or even your food.
Now, onto the review of the food...
We ordered the Seafood Bouillabaisse and the Shrimp Appetizer were superb. The seafood was extremely fresh and prepared with care and precision.
Blackened mahi mahi was seasoned well and blackened to perfection. Everything on the plate was fresh and well plated. The taste was definitely something to write home about.
We also ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and it was spectacular. Cooked with a perfect crust and served with fresh string beans and a champagne sauce. The sauce was just ok, however it would have gone better with a beurre blanc. Overall,it was fantastic and well executed
The dessert offerings were definitely lack luster. We didn't order anything. I honestly felt that the dessert was not paired well for this restaurant.
I would definitely eat here again , however the prices and the dessert selection need some work.

Ambiance was incredible.....our table was perhaps 10 feet from the shoreline. Dined to the sound of the gentle lapping of the waves and a very talented saxophonist.
Sea Bass was delicious and the Filet was done to perfection. Highly recommend.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Sunset on the beach is gorgeous! High, yet competitive pricing. What was not expected, with an operation of this caliber, was the corporate party with a live band blasting next door. We could not carry on a conversation. Check the party schedule before dining here!

My husband and I truly enjoyed our meal at Atardi. We loved the idea of kicking off our shoes and eating our dinner right on the beach with the waves lapping right next to us. The wait staff was extremely attentive to us and the food was delicious! We will definitely recommend Atardi and return in the future!

Outstanding ambience, outstanding food, outstanding service. Seafood was of course as fresh as can be. Ate their twice on our trip. One was for dinner and one was for our special occasion. How nice it was to kick off your shoes and eat with your feet in the sand watching the sunset. Very peaceful and beautiful. Juan the manager was super friendly and spoke to us about our meal and service and made sure everything was to our liking. The live entertainment during dinner was fantastic also.

Absolutely wonderful from start to finish. The service was friendly, helpful and great. The food was excellent. Great appetizers were enjoyed by all. The blackened Mahi Mahi was amazing. The only problem was that there was little sharing among our guests as all were enjoying individual selections.
The ambience was so cool. Table on the sand. Oceanside. Bare feet. Gorgeous evening. Hand it to Atardi for using what was granted to them!

The service was excellent and it was nice to sit by the beach but I felt they lacked some ambience lighting. The food was awful. Very little to chose from on the menu that was interesting and the flavour was not there. I never return my meal and I had to return it and ask for something else which had slightly better taste.

Right on the beach. We were 5 ft from the water! Toes in the sand. Food was superb. The best! Our waiters were the best. Ask for Daniel and his helper. So efficient and friendly. Live music -romantic classics. A truly wonderful experience for our 45 years of marriage! 💘 💘

Food was very good, but overpriced compared to other seafood restaurants on Aruba that have the same dishes available. Service was okay , but not up to the luxury that they are trying to sell.
The most annoying thing What government entity first employed infamous FBI director J. Edgar Hooverwas that I made my reservation through Open Table. There was no need for them to ask for my hotel room number. There should never be a reason to ask unless the guest is charging the dinner to their room. I don't need the entire staff knowing my room number and that I am out of my room for 2 hours eating dinner.

This is one of the best if not the best Dinner on The Beach restaurant. The Executive Chef took care of my girlfriends vegetarian needs and dinner was exquisite especially for my Birthday! Recommend booking at the beginning of your trip as they book fast.

Our waiter Oscar was very attentive and took a picture of us upon arrival. My husband had the Sea Bass & thought ot tasted "fishy" and he brought him another meal no questions asked. I had the macademia crusted grouper which was cooked to perfection and the portions were much larger than I expected which made up for the price tag. I would definitely eat there again the next time we are in Aruba

Here on vacation and choose this restaurant because of great reviews and romantic dinning on the beach. It was my first time trying the grouper and it was outstanding. I loved it! It was so tasty I even craved it the next day. Overall this was a great restaurant. When I am on the island again I will be sure to visit again.

Seated at a beautiful table with good friends, enjoying a talented musician and the magical view of the ocean, what could be better? A wonderful menu and gracious waiter. Everything was spectacular, do not hesitate to dine at this fine restaurant.

We dined at this restaurant while on vacation and would recommend it for its great sunset dinner and relaxing ambience sitting on the sandy beach. The wait staff was personable & professional. Can't wait to go back.

We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The sunset was gorgeous! Our dinners were delicious...we had the salmon and mahi mahi. Mauricio and Alex were great and provided friendly professional service. The dessert was a special treat. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
