charming staff and charming, slightly fairy-tale-ish, place. Usually I'd say that it's not my style, but given the location, the mountains, and the whole concept of the place - it is all coherent and appealing. Plus great breakfast available. Parking available at a walking distance or down a flight of stairs. Be very careful on the roads leading to the village. Not a single straight section, only curves.

We had one of the two rooms. The larger of the two, big enough to include a comfortable sofa. The decor is definitely not out of Vogue magazine, but it is in accord with a rustic inn. There is a good wardrobe and plenty of space to put your things. although with only one window it is not exactly filled with light. There is a common area with a kettle. I cannot enthuse about the food the way many reviewers do. It is vegetarian and indeed much of it is vegan. The Quorn dishes with asian spices were very good but other dishes suffer from not having butter or cream, or meat stock. Our tip would be to try the yoghurt with honey for desert. Fantastic. Michel, who fronts the house, is a pleasure to converse with, if you can catch him at a quiet moment. Which basically means in the morning. Once lunch starts, he and Brigitte have their hands full until they finish the last dinner of the night.

Michel and Brigitte make a great team, he friendly, funny, multilingual, and she a well-travelled culinary artist brimming with infectious enthusiasm who excels at many cookery styles from around the world. Their restaurant and B & B is set in a 500-year old house in the local style, whitewashed, with very thick irregular walls, and traditional wood and slate ceilings. You can eat inside or out in the street, and there's often a lovely international atmosphere and great conversations across the tables. There's a very successful blend of the tastiest local produce, such as local honey, fig jam, lemon marmalade, and international dishes made with local and organic ingredients where possible, topped off excellent deserts such as lemon sorbet with Cava, and a good wine list. They provide bed and breakfast at a very reasonable rate too, and cheerfully cater for special diets like my husband's wholefood low-oil veganism. The village is one of seven linked by ancient footpaths and it's a joy to walk them and come across mulberries, figs, olive groves, and hear goats' bells in the distance. A very special place.

The place is cute and the owners welcomed us really warmly! We had a great evening overall. I'm just giving 3 stars because I think the place is a little overated. The dishes are all handmade so this is great! But with all the raving reviews, I think we were expecting food to be a little more creative. The risotto and the lentil gratin were good, really, but I don't think I would have done such a detour to come here for them during a one week trip. And we thought it was perhaps a little pricy for what it was. This would be a restaurant to go to if you can't eat Spanich food anymore.

L'Atelier is a little gem in the beautiful village of Mecina Fondales. A warm (tri-lingual) welcome from Brigitte and Michel proceeds the best vegetarian food you'll find in Andalusia. My favourites include the Samosas, Patras and any Risotto. Brigitte does the cooking and her Tiramisu ( I don't even like puddings) is to die for. Well worth a deviation if you are in the area.
