Description: We have passed this place on the corner for several years and never got the chance to stop in. This time we got the opportunity to stop in for an afternoon appetizers and some wine. For an appetizer we had an item that is really an entre, Mussels Lemonade. Might sound like a little much but we always have a hard time passing up mussels. The description reads "Sauteed with a lot of Garlic, Oregano, White Wine and Lemon Sauce - Served over Toasted Bread" These were some of the best mussels we have ever had the pleasure of consuming. The mussels were large green mussels and were very tender and sweet. The garlic, lemon butter sauce was a scrumptious delight with the garlic and butter coating your tongue and the lemon waking up your taste buds all at once. The sauce was so good we asked for extra bread to soak it up. The waitress told us about their lasagna stating it was made with crepes instead of the traditional lasagna noodles. She stated many customers came in just for it. We decided right then and there to do a little more shopping and come back later for dinner. When we arrived the waitress greeted us like we were old friends and gave us a choice seat by the window. The lasagna came and we could not believe the size of it. So pretty with the cheese melted to a golden brown on top it was almost too pretty to eat. But we did. There are times in one's culinary life where you taste something and you instantly know it is the best you have ever had. This was one of those times. The cheese, the tomato sauce, the seasonings, the meat were as good as it gets, but the crepes were the difference maker. Light, fluffy and tender with a light egg flavor made this lasagna the best we have ever had. We took the leftovers home and had for lunch the next day. Truly a culinary extravaganza. The Atlantis Bistro has an excellent selection of wine and beer with a 2 for 1 Happy Hour every day from 4 - 6:30. Closed on Monday. Open for lunch and dinner Tuesday - Saturday and dinner on Sunday. We highly recommend the Atlantis Bistro.

“Very Good By Local Standards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Most of Ponce Inlet, Daytona and Smyrna Beach are dominated by Corporate Food Chains and or fish fry restaurants. Atlantis Bistro as others have mentioned has a nice mix of seafood dishes, chicken, sandwiches and delicious, maybe even really delicious crab cakes. Unfortunately there was no tiramisu on the day we visited. After lunch its a nice area to walk around as well. Prices are very reasonable and service is good. I don't believe they have their own website but if you search around you can find their menu online.

“Abondanza !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

We had heard about this small restaurant on Flagler Ave and finally tried it a week ago. We will definitely be returning. The decor is very casual and the seating is somewhat limited. The service was excellent from start to finish. I had the ravioli in a meat sauce. They were very large and the cheese filling delicious. Someone else had the crab cakes and another person the osso bucco. Everyone thought their dishes were wonderful and the portions very generous. The tiramisu was excellent and easily shared by three.

“Very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Just got back from the restaurant. The food was delicious especially the chicken dishes. The bread we started with was home made and served with a nice light oil & herbs...if you hint on how good it was you can get seconds. Topped it off with a great tiramisu (we mentioned we were sharing and they gave us a piece big enough for 4...being my birthday might have helped).
As others have mentioned it is a small place however it is clean and the service is excellent.

“Small and charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Join the locals in the know and try out the Atlantis Bistro. This is a small place with about 10 tables and maybe 8 seats at the bar. There are a few tables outside too. Because of the size you might have to wait for a table,but well worth it.

The food is always good - fish is fresh - all well prepared.

If you can bear to not order fish, the pork shank is a great alternative.

“Absolutely outstanding!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

We winter in Florida and for the past three years have made Atlantis Bistro our "to go" place on Fridays for lunch. The food is excellent, the wait staff is very friendly and we love the atmosphere. The owner always comes out and chats for a minute and asks how everything is. Just a wonderful experience all the way around. Elaine Ferraro, Glasco, NY 12432
