    An absolutely incredible evening for our 13 year anniversary, the staff were so lovely and diligent but more than that - just a delight to be around. We appreciated all the conversations and attention to detail. They made our night, and the food was next level. Massive thanks to the whole team! We’ll always keep coming back :)

    We were very impressed when we were seated in a private dining room. This made it very special. The service excellent. The food and wine list was brilliant. So overall we will certainly be back to your restaurant and we have no hesitation in recommending Atlantic to our friends. Thank you for accommodating our needs.

    We overall had a great night with the food and service but it was a bit loud and express to be able to relax for an intended romantic evening for our wedding anniversary. But the food was very good (we had Kilpatrick oysters, squid ink and the Moreton bay bugs spaghettini pastas) and the waitress (from Holland) was fantastic! Highly recommend the experience!

    We had an early 6pm Saturday night sitting at the Atlantic for our wedding anniversary. We decided to take our two young children along (4 & 7) and the waitress and staff could not be more accomodating and friendly. We all had a great time and the food was great.

    Food was nice but their "no doggie bag" policy was a bit annoying, especially when we said we were happy to pack the excess Wagyu steak ourselves. Service was otherwise ok amd average, nothing special.

    We certainly don't visit The Atlantic enough at all! We decide this on every visit - and it has nothing to do with the quality of the restaurant but rather that Southgate is not really our hood. Parking is tricky or expensive, and crowds more often than not - overwhelming! But having said all that - The Atlantic is delightful as a seafood restaurant - staff are always friendly and know their menu - and the food is always fresh and delicious! The oysters are always standout and beautifully fresh with full provenance of location provided by staff. We always over order here, but that's one of the guilty pleasures - everything is so damn good that we can't decide! But make sure you have the Morten Bay Bug rolls - omg they are good! Maybe we take an Uber and visit more often! Thanks Atlantic!

    My Moreton bay bug pasta was really dry. The meat almost seemed over cooked… the pasta was probably the highlight of the dish . Rose was lovely easy to drink. Service was excellent. Wouldn’t probably recommend the dish to anyone going

    The service we had was excellent. Our waiter was Mark who was very knowledgeable of the menu items. He had a great personality and was very good at his job, which made the dining experience enjoyable. The food was good but what we chose were small portions. We had the Barramundi and I can’t remember the dessert, but it was quite small. I saw someone order the Flounder which was a good size, so I wished I’d ordered that. The restaurant was very noisy which made conversation virtually impossible.

    The seafood was extremely fresh and melting in mouth. Oysters with caviar, octopus, scallops prawns were melting in the mouth. Barramundi was the only dish I was not impressed with as ate much better in other places. Service, ambience and staff were to my liking and at very high standard.

    Extremely over priced for the quality of food. Spent $305 on a platter for 2 and left feeling hungry. The food was bland, not seasoned, for $305 I expected something a little more substantial and cooked perfectly. No chips, salad or condaments came with the meal. Very small portion, I would consider it entreé sized. We actually went to another restaurant for a meal.

    The entree was fine, the small bites Prawn Spring Roles not so great. Our mains were absolutely terrible and I will never eat at the Atlantic again. The oil was old and the whiting and chips were drenched in oil. The food was bland, no herbs or spices to enhance any taste at all.

    Food was terrible.. could eat at another restaurant for 3x less the price and have much better quality. Used to come here frequently before COVID and can honestly say the food at that time had much better taste. On this occasion, seems the chef misplaced his salt and garlic amongst other things, definitely won’t be going back anytime soon unfortunately

    Good location like any along the crown promenade. Great service and attentive waitstaff. Flight was delayed so was late to restaurant. Had called up before and staff were very understanding and helpful. Ordered the cold platter to sample a selection of seafood. Prawns and Moreton Bay bugs had clearly been frozen and not fresh. The difficulty in shelling the bugs and the prawns were a good give away. Quality of the food overall was relatively poor. The pasta was decent and so was the octopus both of which were cooked. Typically cold platters are a signature dish for most seafood restaurants such as this and for the price and what the Atlantic was offering it was a bit disappointing. With drinks the meal came to 300/head.
