Swordfish (Xiphias gladius)

Swordfish (Xiphias gladius) is available on our menu all year long and is a perfect marriage to our charcoal grill.  Possibly the meatiest fish available swordfish steak verges on a pork like texture and is best served lightly cooked to retain the maximum moisture.  As with all game fish the flavour is reasonably string and […]

Turbot (Scophthalmus maximus)

Turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) is another very highly prized member of the flat fish family and like Halibut is now being successfully farmes in Atlantic and Mediterranean waters.  Turbot is a very meaty fish with robust moisture retaining flakes which cooks up bright white, providing a slightly fishier flavour than some other flats.  Turbot holds its […]

Skate is native to our shores and encompasses a number of sub species, all with very similar textures and flavours.  Much like shark and dogfish, skate has cartilage instead of bones characteristically fanning through the wings (the most edible part) requiring a technique of dragging the meat off the wing with a fork or knife.  […]

King Prawns (Melicertus tigrinus)

No seafood restaurant menu would be complete without King Prawns!  Ours are purchased as raw black tiger prawns (Melicertus tigrinus) and we subsequently marinade them in light piri-piri spices, garlic and citrus ready for grilling on our char-grill on skewers.  Dependent on availability and price, our prawns are usually whole but occasionally headless.

Prawns have a […]

Mackerel (Scomber scombrus)

Mackerel (Scomber scombrus) Is a small game fish found throughout the British Isles and beyond and is closely related to Tuna and yahoo.  As such we consider Mackerel exceptionally underrated and urge our customers to try this delicious native fish with an open mind.  Mackerel is one of the best known sources of omega 3 […]

Halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus)


Halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus) is one of the most prestigious fish available here at the Atlantic and is now permanently found on our menu’s.  During more recent years Halibut has been successfully farmed in North Atlantic waters but due to its slow growth rate still commands a significant premium and line caught wild fish is as […]

Plaice (Pleuronectes platessa)

Plaice (Pleuronectes platessa) is another perennial chip-shop favorite mainly due to its excellence when battered.  Plaice has a more subtle flavour than sole and is best eaten fresh due to its delicate flavour dissipating rather quickly after capture.  We are lucky here in Weston because Brixham lands a lot of Plaice from the South coast […]

Scampi Dublin Bay prawns

Scampi, otherwise known as Dublin Bay prawns or langoustines (Nephrops norvegicus) are closer in family to lobster than king prawns.  The meat used is still housed within the tail of the shellfish and has a delicious sweet taste and prawn texture although perhaps slightly less firm and more crab-like.  The Langoustines we purchase are the […]

Rock salmon (Scyliorhinus stellaris)

Also know as Huss, Rock Eel or Dogfish.  Rock salmon (Scyliorhinus stellaris)  has enduring popularity in and around the London area due to its meaty, monkfish-like texture which is ideal for battering.  Rock salmon is another fish that handles strong flavours well such as curry sauce or other hot spices and is served skinless with […]

Hake (Merluccius poli)

Hake (Merluccius poli) is another white fish from the same family as cod and haddock.  Hake tends to have an even lighter, more fragile flake than both cod and haddock and when cooked can yield a white/very slightly pink flesh with a mild flavour.  Hake takes flavours very well and is a really good alternative […]

Here at the Atlantic we make our own fresh mayonnaise, which forms the base of our homemade tartar sauce and garlic mayonnaise sides.
Bread and Butter:
