And they served G&T and not bad bar food. They have a couple of pool tables and a great beachside location. Can't fault it really and a good hangout to meet other expats.

Food is average and a bit overpriced but the place is relaxing at sunset with a great view on Lumley beach and the ocean.

I love the location of Atlantic and they are the venue for some great live music and dancing. The food however is just average, not bad, but not great either. I would recommend going for sunset drinks.
