After many years of working at some of the best restaurants in Portimão, Fernando and Angelina decided to open their own business on the sands at Praia da Rocha in 1976.
Today, the Atlântico Restaurant is managed by their children, Vânia and Ricardo, but it is still Fernando who goes to the local market every day to carefully select the best and freshest ingredients. It is he who chooses the fish and seafood from the Algarve coast, and the fresh fruit and vegetables that are transformed by Angelina’s capable hands into delectable dishes in the kitchen at this restaurant in Praia da Rocha.
The specialities could not be more “Algarvean”: seafood rice, octopus fritters with açorda and, on Sundays, the famous bean and whelk stew. During the week, the suggested fresh fish and seafood dishes vary depending on the best offerings available at Portimão Municipal Market.
The friendly welcome that awaits you at the Atlântico Restaurant is part and parcel of the family atmosphere but the service is experienced and professional nevertheless.
Children are very welcome so the Atlântico Restaurant is a great place for a family meal.
The setting is perfect for friends to share a sunset meal of baby clams – or larger ones – and, outside the peak summer holiday season, it is a good choice for a romantic dinner. After your meal, this welcoming restaurant in Praia da Rocha invites you to stay and appreciate the sea breeze while sipping a cocktail and listening to ambient music. Just right for an evening spent chatting with friends.
