Atlas is easily our favourite restaurant in Courtenay. On a busy evening you'll probably have to wait for a table, but it's worth the wait. (If you've got a party of six or more you can make a reservation. You can also call ahead and get your name on the wait list.) Everything's delicious, although I'm partial to the Mexican... More

Great staff. Fun place. Had supper (fish tacos - somewhat sloppy but good) and excellent drinks. Be sure to check with the server or chef about is actually in your meal unless you like surprises.

We ate here based on the reviews this cafe received on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! The food was fabulous! Our favourite was the Middle Eastern Roll. The salad we had was quite good too. The roasted eggplant & sweet chilli yam quesadillas was our least favourite as it was so heavy on the blackbeans that it was hard to... More

Enchiladas was amazing. My wife's Mojito was her favorite beverage this summer. I'd recommend this establishment and will definitely come again.

From the first time I accidentally stepped into this place, every plate served has been delicious! And their cocktail selections are the best!

I have a grandson who teaches overseas and home for the summer. We always do one-on-one lunch. We lunched here recently. He had the kale salad and I enjoyed delicious fish tacos. Atlas continues to maintain its reputation for excellent food and service. Pleasant, delicious, come-back-soon kind of atmosphere and never disappointing.

Quality food at reasonable prices. Warm beet salad was excellent, great flavour with the goat cheese. Eggplant quesadilla was very comforting. The citrus dressing on the side salad was stupendous. Would have preferred ice cream rather than whipped cream with the coconut cream pie.

We had a great brunch here. It was located right in the centre of the town, easy to find. The menu was interesting. We had eggs benedict and poached eggs on foccacia with chorizo sausages. The food was fresh,well-prepared, the garnish was delicious-watermelon, honeydew and orange. The small touches made it special. Service was great too.

We haven't been to Atlas in 2 years and we are happy to report it has maintained its great food and service. We love the fresh ingredients and interesting specials. Service friendly and attentive. Wild salmon was beautifully prepared. The secluded little courtyard is a treat on a hot day.
