Absolutely amazing!! My friend and I both had the fried fish fillet with salad and sweet potato followed by a scrumptious crepe and ice cream dessert. One of the best meals I've had in a loooooong time. I give 5 stars plus, plus, plus! Enjoy your meal at Atlantico! The Canadian girls 😋

went there because of the good reviews on TripAdvisor and were super happy with our choice. fish was cooked perfectly on point and served with salad and baked potatoes (so wonderful to not get bad french fries like at other restaurants, thank you!), desserts were delicious. will definitely visit again during our stay!

This is a delightful little restaurant overlooking the harbour and the little island off Vila Franca do Campo serves lovely fish meals. We just walked in off the street and were served by a local guy recently returned from Bermuda,who gave great service and we had a good evening. This is a small informal restaurant that on our experience, makes... More

Barracuda and Tuna entrees with octopus salads. The crepe, cupcake, and pineapple cake for dessert. Bottle of Kasta vinho blanc and a great tap beer. Top ten seafood meals ever! Dessert was top 20. Got there at opening, just good timing. Crowd was handled good, with very knowledgable service. A little bit snippy in that European way a American might... More

Great meal on the 2nd floor balcony, good service, great food and wine. We both had meat - regional steak and skewer - and they were cooked perfectly. I have an allergy to dairy products and they were helpful in reassuring me of the exact contents of the steak sauce so I could enjoy it worry-free!

Rude waiter, mediocre food (at best) and a wine from a box = avoid! We had a fish soup which was inedible - rice and artificial flavorings killed it. Afterwards we had octopus salad - octopus wasn't cleaned property. Also, a very sad dish of sautéed squid and shrimp. This place needs to get better asap.

Read rave reviews about this place. Cute enough with a couple of floors. Has the ambience part, I agree.. looking out onto the harbor. It was a rainy night , so we sat on the 2nd floor ( European 1st floor) which is a floor below the terrace. The fish soup was rather poor. It was lukewarm ram and had... More

The food here is top notch, the views are lovely from the balcony and the staff are friendly and helpful. We had a fun and playful rapport with out server who made many suggestions throughout the night, all of which were spot on. The fish stew for two was more than we could eat, but we gave it our all!... More

We arrived in Villa Franca and during our first walk along the port noticed the restaurant and made dinner reservations for the following day. We had a wonderful dinner at the roof top patio. In total there were 7 of us and we all ordered different dishes, all delicious, but my favourite was the grilled cod fish. I tried it... More
