“Simply fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Fabulous authentic food in a great location. Great attentive but unobtrusive service, excellent wine choice, food that was perfect, and good value too! I can't praise this place more. If you are in the area or staying at one of the nearby hotels or apartments then make sure you visit, you won't be disappointed. Only downside was that it wasn't full of people so lacked a little atmosphere.

“Great location - go for the specials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

A great location and nice service. Went there twice as a family of four during our two week vacation, and good value can be found with the specials in particular. Bistro central and Agua offer better food but it's still up there. Mrs Logicball had the calamari second time which wasn't great, but the golden bream was very good which helped make up for the limp squid.

“Superb location and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We have visited the Atlantico in Salema many times each summer for the past few years and have always been happy with it. The staff are the same each year, I think it is a family affair, and they are always polite and pleased to see us. It is great for couples or families and the location is superb right above the beach in Salema - making it a lovely spot for a cool drink in the day or dinner at night, they are also busy for food at lunch time. The menu varies from simple plain food to local fish specials and Portuguese dishes. We are off to Portugal again this summer (2014) and no doubt will be visiting the Atlantico again.

“The best scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Absolutely stunning looking restaurant - inside (if off season) and outside. The staff are brilliant at making you feel welcome. The location is lovely with steps down on to the beach if with kids that would like to play on the beach before dinner. The chicken kebab, prawn curry, monkfish and shrimp kebab are delicious!

“Even the dog left early!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Arrived at 7.45 pm on a Saturday evening, and sat outside, as the tables inside were empty. There were only 5 people, a group of 3 and another couple with their dog, all seating outside.
The staff were pleasant and helpful.
The food was well cooked and presented, but overpriced by what was available elsewhere in the area.
The place totally lacked any atmosphere, and by 8.45pm even the dog had gone home!

Thank you for your review about our restaurant on tripadvisor.
I would like to say that you came on a quiet day, and your right, there is no atmosphere with only 5 people on the restaurant, but the dog like it. They left at 8.45pm, as they were the first costumers arrived at 5.30pm on that day, and returned several times. That means something, I believe.

Best Regards
Antonio Matos
