This restaurant is a gem. The food is prepared beautifully with the perfect amount of seasoning. You couldn't ask for a more hospitable experience. The owner was charming and welcoming. A true family run restaurant that has a real care for great food and service. It's offers a culinary experience that is well above so many other establishments. We are lucky to still have a few places like this in Atlanta.

*Save room for their amazing deserts made in house.

This is a don’t judge a book by its cover. It is in a shopping strip, but inside the restaurant is tastefully decorated. The food is good but the homemade desserts are what made the meal for me.

We have been to Emidios 3 times and each time we have really enjoyed our meal. They have an interesting, but somewhat limited menu. We;ve been with different groups of friends who ordered different dishes. We've had fish, beef, chicken and other types of meals and they have been very good. They have a nice wine list and homemade sangria.
The atmosphere is warm and we were never rushed. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We love this restaurant. It feels like an "old world" restaurant. The food is excellent. I highly recommend the garlic soup (garlic, chicken broth, tomato, poached egg and croutons) and anything made "Madeira" style.

This place is a hidden gem. Went for our 20th wedding anniversary and it was quite, romantic and very cozy. I know this area well but never noticed it before. It’s on Roswell Rd next door to where the old DMV used to be. It’s a family operated restaurant and as the mother Maria told us while chatting they take their time here so sit relax and enjoy your time.

Food was amazing, nicely cooked and flavored. The side items that come with most dishes like ratatouille, green beans and potatoes are excellent, especially the potatoes. They serve seafood, steaks, chicken and lamb but It’s all in the flavor and the sauces. Service was excellent and friendly. You feel like your family is cooking and bringing you food.

I am very worried about this restaurant. When we got to the table and sat the waiter looked very unsure of what he was doing. The "Trainee" introduced herself as such and was the most professional of the group. It felt like something out of the Twilight Zone. The menu is very limited but the decor in this spot is really dark and kind of depressing. The chairs in the restaurant for instance look like they are made of balsa wood and are about to fall apart. The wall art is like a forest green that is really dark and sort of plastered on there. The ceiling is painted a strange dark color and just looks bad. The waiter did not remove the charger plates and did not have dark napkins for my dark pants. The food was actually pretty good given the other impressions I had of this place. The signs on the outside of the restaurant

Took my family this time. Food was delicious, service was great. Love this husband-wife team bringing new flavors to the Atlanta area. Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian dishes. Paella was delightful, as was the sangria and the codfish croquettes. Hope more people will visit this lovely place - rated #1 restaurant in Sandy Springs. They just need a website and an instagram account. Sorry I didn’t take pictures!

The paella and chicken Madera were excellent. The steaks were little overdone. The presentations were beautiful. The Ratatouille was very tasty. We were even given a complimentary piece of to die for banana cake. We will definitely go back.

Love this family owned restaurant tucked away in the corner of the shopping center. They’ve been there 6+ years and we’ve managed to overlook it! A gem in not so plain site. Food is unique and special and the owners are over the moon friendly and personable. Expect a high touch experience and grab some sangria....it’s delicious.

We wish we had known this place earlier. This is a family owned restaurant. The owner and servers were very relaxed and friendly. Food was great. The white wine clam was tender and with lots of flavor. The veal came with side vegi and mash potato in the shape of a pear. Very unique and tasted good too. Arroz de Marisco was a rice dish with seafood. It was delicious. We also had flan and chocolate mouse cake. We liked them too. Very good restaurant. We will be back.
