Was in Melbourne with family, had a lovely dinner 5 adults and a baby. The restaurant accommodated the pram which was appreciated. We had 2 dozen natural oysters, 1 dozen oyster kilpatrick and 6 oysters with belugas caviar. We were curious about the caviar on the oyster, but all were delicious. However we were charged for 30 natural oysters, I queried it at the counter but the lady said they are all added together. My daughter wanted to get her baby to sleep, so I just paid. I have now just looked at the receipt again and clearly see we were over charged. I would still recommend the restaurant just would advise you check your bill. Everything else was perfect and charged correctly. Even the steak was wonderful (as it is a seafood restaurant was not sure how this would be). Flounder was good, Salmon delicious vegetable sides were great. Desserts and cheese very nice. Wine was good too. It was only $36 overcharged and considering the total bill not that much over. My fault I should have checked and challenged this at the time. The invoice does have a name, but do not want to name and shame as it may have been a genuine mistake. We all still had a lovely evening.

If you like oysters, you should go on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, because they have a $2 special.
All the food we had was amazing! Best fish fingers ever, the kids really enjoyed!
It was expensive, but definitely worth every penny!
We would certainly recommend this restaurant to seafood lovers!

I don't mind paying for good meal
however I have to say the décor of The Atlantic did not match the taste of the food and therefore it definitely did not match the $400 price tag I paid for 4 Adult meals.

We found this restaurant grossly overpriced for the standard of food served. The service was average and we wouldn’t recommend it.

Nice restaurant with good wine selection and tasty food, quite pricey for what you get. Service was slow at the beginning but the lady attending to our table was very helpful and chatty at the end.
