Atlantica celebrates the bounty of the sea with feasts of cider-glazed salmon, locally acquired lobster, roasted halibut, and saffron-tinged paella amid a charming waterfront location. A fitting nautical theme permeates the restaurant's decor, with murals of sails draping the walls, fluttering canvas curtains and trimming looming elegantly overhead, and striking blue glassware perched atop cream-colored tablecloths. Sunday brunches can include crepes, pasta, quiche, and freshly caught seafood, while the dinner menu presents fried native haddock, grilled sirloin, and small plates of sautéed mussels or Spanish cheeses. A highly skilled culinary team led by Executive Chef Nicci Tripp cultivates a farm-to-table approach to cooking, pairing locally caught seafood with seasonal vegetables and sides when available.
Sunny glass windows, reaching from knee height to the ceiling, make up major segments of the restaurant's walls. And they present diners with a stunning view of the ancient Cohasset harbor that welcomed the arrival of some of New England's founding families, as well as the wharves that witnessed the first cannonball diving contest in Massachussetts. The restaurant complex can accommodate up to 500 guests for events ranging from weddings to Thanksgiving dinners, and those guests often have the option to stay at the attached Cohasset Harbor Inn.
