I've waited more than an hour for an insala do mar. The insalata was terrible, decongelated shrimps and surimi were the "do mar" stuff. No bread at the table. I asked for bread three or four times before I had it. Bread costs 2.5 euros. Really terrible tourist stuff.

We did not expect a lot, but were welcomed with a nice smile and seaded on the top roof terrasse with nice harbour view. The fresh fish was great, the octopus delicious, and the staff very friendly, wine list is ok and kids are welcome. We went twice and were never disappointed.

First time visit in Portugal. Was initially offset by the empty chairs in the restaurant but they did not hesitate to treat and serve us as if we were the only guests in all of the island!

We really enjoyed our meal here, a lovely mix of fish and non fish tapas style starters, very generous mains - the fresh fish was delish, I would go back again.

Restaurante Atlantico had exactly what we wanted, tapas style food. There was four of us, and we all wanted the same thing. We had prawns(shrimps), marinated squid, marinated octopus, marinated fish and bread. It was a perfect setting outside.

Best restaurant in Vila Franca. Really helpful service and tasty mix of food. Recommended for a quiet meal but they also coped with our large group (15) at short notice.

Not famed as the best in the island, but nevertheless well worth a visit.All the usual Acorean fare, friendly attentive service. Honest staff who subtly point you away from items on the menu with good advice on what you may enjoy more. Great fresh fish from the harbour across the street washed down with good local wine. And ten minutes... More

We had an excellent late night dinner here and it was one of the best meals we had in Sao Miguel. Both the steak and octopus were exceptional, and came with great sides, and sauces. Service was great, and the waiter spoke excellent English. Highly recommended.

After eating similar food around the island, did not expect to find a restaurant as good and different than its neighbors. Worth the trip.
