“Still No.1 Restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Friendly, family run restaurant. Intimate size which may require reservations on busier nights. Not to be confused with currently higher ranked ice cream parlours or takeaways, this is a proper restaurant using quality ingredients and with a good service. Only dislike are the tv sets which I find distract from the excellent food. To put my rating in perspective, this is the only restaurant I have returned to and given five on each occasion.

“Amazing food, wonderful hospitality, you have to eat here!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

As soon as you walk through the door you are made to be feel instantly welcome. Never rushed at all, even though it is a small, very popular restaurant. The menu is varied with Mediterranean/Portuguese dishes that just make your mouth water. And once served we were not disappointed. The prawns were amazing as well as the stroganoff and piri piri chicken.
We are still on holiday but it was so good I was compelled to write a review ASAP so others can go.
The owners warmth and love of being the host and sharing their wonderful food shine through the food and through the atmosphere of gem of a restaurant. We'll be back this week!!!
And they have a Facebook page you can make bookings through :-)

OUTSTANDING!!! we always enjoy going to Atlantico with Nic and Laura as wonderful hosts. We pre ordered Giant Tiger prawns for our main meal and these were spectacular! The service is excellent and the menu is extensive.
We highly recommend this restaurant!

“Great people and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here twice since seeing it on Tripadvisor, the staff are lovely, the second night they gave my children toys to keep and they are very patient with children that are tired after a long day. We love the place, the second night they were supposed to be closed but opened as they had bookings, whilst we have been there they have turned countless people away as they are full,lots of people walk around for an hour waiting for a space (they only have 5 tables inside, more on the balcony) I advise booking we are going back again tonight and will be back again before the week is out. The food is plentiful and fresh, the price tag is extremely reasonable and the selection of wine very good. If we hadn't used Tripadvisor we would never have found the place.
