Good food but rather noisy when we were there! Would be happy to eat there again. Lovely view over Porthleven harbour.

This was a busy little pub. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The food was a little disappointing, but it was a busy evening. As a drinking pub, it was up there with the best.

We only popped into the Atlantic Inn for drinks so can't comment on the food but the menu did look quite extensive and looked as though it covered most appetites. Both selections of ale were great and we sat outside overlooking the harbour and out to sea in the glorious sunshine for a few hours - wonderful

Been to Porthleven on holidays ten times .. Discovered the Atlantic Inn on our latest trip ... How did we miss it?! Ended up eating there three times. The food was amazing ... Cornish hake, lamb and steak .... The ale was fab (Cornish Doombar and Betty's). The view of the sea beautiful. The service friendly. The atmosphere? Think ordinary... More

Fresh local fish all over the menu was well cooked and delicious. Some Pub Grub elements - like butter in wrapped portions. Service great - and by 7.30pm on a Saturday, the restaurant was full and buzzy. A pub more for locals than the harbour side tourist places. Well done.

Only 5 mins stroll from the Harbour, the Atlantic has a fantastic view over Mounts Bay, a nice range of beers and above average pub grub. Lovely landlord and staff who really care and friendly regulars. Perhaps not as cute as The Ship, or quite as ruthlessly efficient as The Harbour, you should still make a point of dropping in...

Came here based on TA reviews having done a few other places already in Porthleven. Certainly not flash and sophisicated but has a charm nonetheless. Food was clearly fresh cooked and was tasty. The restuarant part we ate in was deserted at this lunchtime, even the bar was quiet...no tourists it would seem :) owners were friendly and I suspect... More
