Our favorite restaurants at Atlantis are Villa D'Este, the Bahamian Club, and Fathoms. We were very disappointed in Five Twins. We actually spent less money on food when we did NOT take the meal plan. We have tried it both ways. Remember, with the meal plan you pay tax and tip on what your meal would actually cost. So, even though you paid for the plan, there will be additional costs. The plan also does not include alcohol.
The awuariums and The Dig at the resort are fantastic.
Ervey time we've been there we noticed more things. The place is huge and there is a lot to see.

For dinner, we enjoyed Nobu and the Great Hall of Water. If you have specific restaurants and times you are interested in I would recommend making your reservations before you go. Every place gets really packed around 7:30/8pm. You can call them at 1-242-363-3000 to make reservations.

You must visit the Dig and the Pedator Tunnel, but also walk along the top of the tanks outside of the Royal Tower/Casino area. We saw some creatures from above that we didn't see from inside the Dig (for example, a really cool spotted reef shark that looks like a leopard; they prefer shallow water so they won't go out into the main sections of the Dig tanks.)

We didn't do anything off the resort other than walk to the nearby liquor store so I can't help you there. There are excursion desks in the lobbies where you can arrange offsite snorkeling or dolphin swims.

Enjoy!

Hi we did the gourmet meal plan and ate everything (stuffed ourselves !)
Our favorite restaurants were Bahamian Club, Villa D Este and the Fathoms. We also did not like the Five Twins. The service was slow and inattentive.
Avoid the buffet restaurants for dinner.They are nothing special.
The Marketplace in the Royal towers was where we ate breakfast daily. The food was buffet and was very good.

As far as things to do, we stayed on the property and enjoyed the pools and the beach. Personally, the nearby city of Nassau is rather dumpy. Unless you are very into straw bags, don't bother going.
