We've eaten dinner here a few times when visiting Courtenay and we've never been disappointed. The menu is extensive and allows for smaller portions in some cases. They have a decent selection of craft beers and wines to match your dinner choice. The food presentation is attractive and the food itself is always delicious. The service is attentive and prompt...

This was our first visit to the Atlas Cafe and after hearing so many amazing things we had extremely high expectations. We were happily surprised that they exceeded these expectations on every level. The overall atmosphere of the restaurant is great. It's warm and cozy but classy enough for a great date night. The water served in old wine bottles... More

I've been coming here since 2001. Even though I don't live in Courtenay, I still make sure to detour into town off the highway every time I'm passing through. The menu changes regulalry but there's something for everyone. Love the patio addition out back.

Providing an interesting and varied menu, Atlas also offers a fresh sheet. We arrived mid-week to a near full-house, but the friendly staff quickly found us a table for three (one local two out-of-towners). Following a relaxing interlude with our wine the generous-sized meals arrived. The Chicken Stir-fry and Schnitzel were delicious; my Mediterranean Platter was good but too garlicky... More

This restaurant is one of the best in town! Not only do they consistently serve great food, but the staff is friendly and eager to please and management is generous with supporting the community. When people are happy to wait a couple of minutes for their table, you know they're coming back for the umpteenth time!

This place was recommended by our realtor who really knows her stuff! Surprisingly good and inventive food given the outside of the place. Professional service too. I had the curry wrap and it was delicious and very healthful...we will be back to try dinner.
