Freshest Fish and a View Not to be Missed

We came here on the recommendation of our son and were not disappointed. We were welcomed at the door by a friendly man, brother of the owner. He was most charming and helpful, explaining so much about the food, the culture and the area. We ordered the mixed grill platter of fresh fish and it was... read more

Tasty marine cousine. Ordered: grilled octopus, tuna steak, octopus salat (really recommended, its great) The beer is more expensive then I expect. In windy day its better to sit close the wall (on the terrace)

We ate here one night and had a wonderful meal. Sat at the window and overlooked the harbor while we dined on fish, shrimp, seafood. All wondrous. Staff was helpful. Even brought us a bowl of soapy lemon water to wash our hands with at the end of the meal as they could see we'd made quite a mess trying... More

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! Food was a tremendous collection of traditional and first class ingredients. Table for 4. A couple 10y son and a baby. We were... More

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.
