“After being led into the dining room at the Beach House hotel in tiny Portugal Cove, with the French doors closed behind, you feel like you’ve been admitted into a secret society. Tall windows frame steep cliffs plunging into Conception Bay, and with the tide rolling in, it can seem like the whole restaurant is sailing.”

In 2007 Atlantica was ranked by enRoute magazine as the best new restaurant in Canada, and since that prestigious award both the accolades, and the waves, have continued to roll in just outside our doors.
“If you’re like most of my readers you’ve already checked out the rating at the end of this column to see how many stars I gave Atlantica. They got a very well deserved four stars rating. If you’re a regular reader you’ll know that that rating is rarely given. In fact, until now, only one current restaurant possessed my top rating. It’s reserved for restaurants that are exceptional in every way. Atlantica is such a restaurant. Obviously food is foremost but the ultimate rating could not have been achieved without incomparable service and appropriate atmosphere.”

“After getting our fill of the view over the bay, it’s time to head down to the hotel restaurant, Atlantica, where chef Stephen Vardy wows us with a seven-course tasting menu. Among the highlights are a delectable salmon tartare with shallots and lemon, and sautéed cod, so fresh it’s practically still flipping, served with spinach and lentils.”
