We visited on a Saturday night in April having read great reviews in 'Free Maps' to find that we were the sole diners. Staff were very welcoming and attended to our every need, however, the lack of fellow diners made it feel like we were in a goldfish bowl, not helped by a background of Christmas music! I asked for turbot but Antonio only had Grupe - a fish I've never heard of but would definitely try again. Husband had pork in paprika, which didn't look overly appealing and he reported as 'OK'. Starters were also average. I would love to rate higher as Antonio was so lovely and showed us around his vast wine 'cellar' (room) but at the end of the day it was the most expensive meal we had all week and certainly not the best overall. Perhaps a visit in summer when busier might make for a better experience.

Excellent menu, freshly cooked food with delicious sauces professionally served by Antonio and his staff who are very attentive but invisible if you know what I mean. We have been visiting Restaurante Atlantico for about 6 years now and have always had a great meal and great wines - we normally ask Antonio to suggest wines for us and he has always chosen a wine below 20 euros. Sometimes in the early or late season the restaurant is empty and therefore lacks a bit of atmosphere , nevertheless it has an interesting interior and if Antonio is there and has the time he might show you around his small wine cellar - a collection to savour with some rare vintages. In the heat of the summer dining alfresco is just marvellous ! We'll be back there for dinner late March, can't wait.

We have been going to Salema for ten years now and every year we visit The Atlantico almost every day we are there.
The Prawns in Garlic are to die for and the fresh fish the best we have found anywhere.
I have seen reviews saying the menu never changes ? Why would it,fresh local produce cooked to perfection.
I have only ever found the staff to be friendly and delightful.
Can't wait to go back there in August,the view from the veranda is also spectacular.
Highly recommended.

We lucked out as there was an English jazz band playing during our lunch here. The entertainment was really good & fun and the food was decent beachbar food. The service was slow but the restaurant was packed. The restaurant is right above the beach so good for parents who want to eat and keep their eyes on their 'little darlings'. The view was Portugal pretty, this is well worth a visit.

Food here was average at best. Lasagna was terribly oily and prawn serving was skimpy. The waiter was next to rude, and not helpful in the least. I would recommend customer service course for the staff, or get new servers!
