This month (February), Nash and I will celebrate our ten-year wedding anniversary. All month we are creating and enjoying fun and romantic experiences with just the two of us. I love to eat out and I was excited to experience Marella at Aurora Anguilla Resort.

It was the perfect night for a romantic date. The sky was clear, and the stars twinkled. A cool breeze gently swirled the skirt of my turquoise dress in a fun and flirty way. I felt beautiful and my husband looked dashing as we descended the spiral staircase leading to Marella.

As we took our seat, I told my husband that the view of the beautiful pool and the twinkly white lights around the palm trees added to the ambience of the evening.

The Menu at Marella at Aurora Anguilla Resort

There were so many exciting options to choose from on the menu at Marella. However, with my declared and public love for seafood, my eyes and tummy were drawn to:

INSALATA DI ASPARAGI VERDI E CAPPESANTE (Seared Scallops, Steamed Green Asparagus, Green Beans, Preserved Truffle Dressing) at Marella

FRITTURA DI PARANZA (Crispy Calamari, Prawns, Scallops, Horseradish Aioli)

MAHI MAHI GRIGLIATO D 40 Grilled Mahi Mahi, Heirloom Baby Carrots, Olive Oil-Whipped Potatoes, Herb Salad at Marella

I also sampled my husband’s choices. They were:

CARPACCIO DI TONNO D 28 Yellow Fin Tuna Carpaccio, Watermelon, Mustard Mayo, Micro Herbs

Each dish was absolutely scrumptious. I still dream about the way the scallops delighted my tastebuds. So yummy!

What do the Chefs at Aurora Anguilla Resort Say?

We were delighted to speak to speak with the Chef at the restaurant. He spoke passionately about how our meal was prepared with the freshest of ingredients.

He echoed the words of the Culinary Director of Aurora Anguilla Resort, Chef Michele Greggio who described the experience of dining at Aurora Anguilla Resort this way:

“The freshest ingredients grown on-site at our hydroponic farm, inspire us to craft unique and delicious dishes that showcase their full potential.”

We have tried two of the restaurants at Aurora Resort. With Valentine’s Day, just a few days way, we also agree with this sentiment from Chef Michele Greggio,

“From a romantic pool-side dinner at Marella to a sophisticated evening at D Richard’s, our Valentine’s Day dining experiences offer something for every type of couple.”

The entire evening at Marella at Aurora Anguilla Resort felt like a romantic rendezvous. It reminded me how lucky Nash and I are to have each other as we count down to Valentine’s Day and our 10-year wedding anniversary.
