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.

I have always liked the Atlas! The staff are always friendly and acknowledge my presence while I'm there. They make my wife and I feel special. I would recommend this place to anyone who considers going out to eat and care what is served to you seriously. If your Idea of a night out for dinner is Boston Pizza, then... More

I started dining at the Atlas when it first opened back in the mid 1990's. It was one of my favourite spots then, and it still is. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable, the staff are always friendly and the food is fantastic. My favourite breakfast item started off as Eggs Atlas, which I still love, although lately I find...

This restaurant is a local favorite. Small and quaint the best steaks in town. The chef here never puts out a plate thats not perfect. I eat here probably 4 times a year and have yet to be disapointed.

Had a great dinner with my son and his family at the Atlas Cafe. He loves burgers and he had the black & blue burger and after the first bite he had to pause and just feel the explosion of flavours in his mouth! I am more traditional and I went for the steak. Prepared perfectly and the sides it... More

Whenever we get to Van. Island, we try to come here for dinner. Tonight, we shared the best ever mussels, I then had the chicken enchilada, my husband had the salmon and then shared the carrot cake. Excellent food and service. Make the drive!
