Paranza (The Cove) opening early 2023
Paranza, an exciting new restaurant by Michelin Chef Michael White, they describe as a “love letter” to Italy that will offer an elevated and innovative expression of Italian regional cuisine with a passionate focus on seafood. Guests they says will experience and enjoy inventive takes on coastal Italian cuisine in an all-new high-design environment. White’s New York City restaurants Marea, Ai Fiori, and Osteria Morini are legendary dining destinations, earning Michelin Stars and James Beard Awards as well as the devotion of discriminating culinary aficionados. White will join chefs Nobu Matsuhisa (Nobu) and José Andrés (Fish) in establishing Atlantis as the only resort destination in the region with three Michelin star-rated chefs.
Shake Shack opening in 2023
Shake Shack, the New York-based elevated fine casual brand, is making its landmark debut in the Caribbean by creating a truly unique Shack experience at the resort. Shake Shack Atlantis will offer the brand’s signature made-to-order American classics – Angus beef burgers, crispy chicken, hand-spun milkshakes and house-made lemonades – alongside exclusives found only at Shake Shack Atlantis.
Café Martinique (Marina Village) re-opened October 2022
At the legendary Café Martinique, chef Adrian Delcourt will take the helm this fall. Delcourt arrived from the famed Michelin-star restaurant Le Jules Verne at the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Before Le Jules Verne, he worked at Michelin-starred restaurants L’Atelier Joel Robuchon Saint Germain, L’Orangerie and Le Pre Catalan in Paris. The menu at the intimate and elegant fine-dining restaurant features his signature Parisian culinary style, blending the bounty and flavor of seasonal and local Bahamian ingredients. The bar and lounge at Café Martinique also debuts a new absinthe-based cocktail list and lounge experience, complemented by a new outdoor dining terrace with waterfront views of the Atlantis Marina.
PITA now open
PITA, a Mediterranean-style beachside eatery nestled between The Cove Beach and The Cove hotel, offers beachside dining for lunch and afternoon snacks. Guests can choose a la carte items like shawarma and falafel wraps or make their own entrée platter with a choice of marinated meats, a variety of savory, chilled dips, and salads, including homemade tabbouleh, baba ganoush and warm pita bread baked daily in PITA’s woodstone oven.
Bimini Road opening November 2022
Bimini Road, the restaurant returning to Atlantis in Marina Village, celebrates Bahamian cuisine’s fresh, vibrant flavors. The menu offers specialties loved and enjoyed throughout The Bahamas served in a laid-back, colorful, lively atmosphere with live music and views of the yachts in the marina. Items include conch salad and conch fritters, local grilled grouper and red snapper, peas and rice, and Bahamian souse pronounced “sowse,” featuring the fresh catch of the day boiled in citrus broth served with johnnycake. The restaurant is named after The Bimini Road, located in waters west of Bimini island. The perfectly straight stone blocks are 1,500-feet long and lie in an orderly row. Since its discovery in 1968, it’s believed to be evidence of an ancient civilization and remnants of the Lost City of Atlantis’ road system. According to some researchers, the site is identical in design to a known and submerged harbor in the Mediterranean built in the same period by the seafaring people.
Frezca opening November 2022
A new beachside restaurant Frezca is set to replace Sip Sip at The Cove. Frezca will highlight local seafood and global flavors. Guests can take in the gentle morning sun poolside with made-to-order fresh pressed juices and smoothies, artisan pastries, and a variety of entrees, including avocado sourdough toast with Tajín and tomatoes, poached eggs, arugula and chimichurri sauce; coconut and chia bowls with almond and coconut milk, granola, berries, and toasted coconut; and lobster eggs benedict with butter poached lobster and citrus crème. Midday, guests will enjoy oysters and seafood towers, refreshing “Pot Cake” poke bowls with ahi tuna, teriyaki chicken or grilled tofu, sushi and vegetarian rolls, fresh fruit platters, salads and wraps, and more. Signature champagne and Bahamian cocktails are among a variety of libations.
The Dilly Club (Marina Village) opening December 2022
The Dilly Club is the highly anticipated offshoot of the locally loved Bon Vivants Bar & Café located in the fashionable Sandyport neighborhood of New Providence. Bon Vivants was The Bahamas’ first craft cocktail bar and was recognized in the top regional Tales of the Cocktail (TOTC) Spirited Awards, which identifies the best bars in the world. This new venue will function as a café during the day, serving specialty coffees, espresso, and fresh baked goods. At night, the bar’s unique menu boasts 50 original, classic, exotic libations, savory snacks and charcuterie bites.
Bar Sol opening early 2023

The bar menu will include a variety of classic and inventive tropical cocktails featuring organic and sustainable ingredients. Ask for the Spicy Gin Gin, made with fresh lime juice, jalapeño ginger syrup, and ginger cubes garnished with a mint sprig, a splash of club soda, or the Eclipse Sol with bourbon, fresh lemon juice, red wine, syrup, and aquafaba.
Moon Bar midyear 2023
The Atlantis Casino’s Moon Bar – well known for its sleek marine habitat centerpiece behind the bar with moon jellyfish – is introducing a new food menu curated from neighboring restaurants, Nobu and Olives.
