Both the food and service were above average (both probably deserving 3.5 stars). I started with a jalapeño margarita that was good but not great. Instead of jalapeño infused simple syrup, there was a piece of jalapeño in the drink. Wine selection was also average and overpriced compared to other places on the island. I guess I expected that at Atlantis though.
Five of us had the ceviche, pancake and tuna tartare to start. Portions across the board were generous. The pancake and ceviche were the most flavorful while the tartare (which seems to be on every menu on Paradise Island) was average. We asked the waiter for entree suggestions and he didn't disappoint. The pork tenderloin was one of the most flavorful and tender preparations I've had recently. It was also cooked perfectly. The mahi mahi and grouper were also flavorful and prepared well, although the grouper was a bit over cooked. The final member of our party had a sirloin steak that was nothing special and extra pricey.
Dessert was a highlight for me. I ordered the banana cream pie, which arrived as two cookies with some type of banana pudding in between them with whipping cream. Despite my lack-luster description, it was delicious. The toffee pudding was actually pudding instead of a cake and tasted as if it was boxed.
Overall, it was what we expected: pricey and above average food at a large resort. Would I return? Probably given the dining options in large resorts like Atlantis all serve up the same impersonal theatrical-like experience.
