My wife and I called in recently for a lunch time meal. The resturant is quite small and they have several tables out in the street (No cars) as well as some cosy tables indoors. The service was good and we were made to feel...More

Tiny vegetarian restaurant - great food, lovely service. They have a handful of tables on the street and I guess some more space inside. We had a great seaweed salad. In additional to a regular menu of drinks they also have Kombucha and Kefir drinks.

Took the family for dinner. None of us are vegetarian but we all enjoyed a tasty, carefully prepared meal and very friendly service.

It's a charming little restaurant - you can eat inside or out: out means on the street in front. But don't worry: the only traffic in the narrow, white-washed street is pedestrian or feline. The menu is not extensive, it's fair to say, but there's...More

We had spotted L’Atelier when passing through Mecina and we are glad we did. Hidden away but a sign on the main road guides you in and you won’t regret visiting. We visited on a Monday evening and didn’t book. There’s outdoor seating, tables at...More

If you’ve been eating lots of local food then the menu makes a nice change with its African / Asian influences. The place has the charm of the old houses of the area and the staff were friendly and attentive. The food all tasted good...More

Tucked away in the spectacular medieval pueblo blanco of Mecina-Fondales this most atmospheric and traditional Alpujarran restaurant has up to the minute yummy veggie dishes and is most reasonably priced. Really nice proprietors too.

Beautiful vegetarian food cooked on the premises and served in an intimate cosy restaurant. Follow the sign up the steps and to the right because it is hidden away. Worth seeking out!

Stunning little vegetarian restaurant - quiet and atmospheric but accommodated two crazy young children who were mesmerised by the food as we all were. It was such a memorable meal - everything incredibly tasty and imaginative. We loved it, the postres particularly! Thanks for a...More

In a tiny village in the Alpujarras, the last thing you would expect to find is a vegetarian restaurant. The fact that it is also a very good vegetarian restaurant is a bonus. Brigitte and Michel speak English and French as well as Spainish so...More

L'Atelier is a small vegetarian restaurant in a very old house of Mecina Fondales, a typical whitewashed village of the Alpujarras. The house offers 2 guest rooms. We cook fresh organic local products we get from nearby small orchards. Brigitte offers dishes from Morocco, India, Asia, and mediterranean specialities, all of them with authentic taste. Conclude your meal with any of our exquisite homemade desserts. We open everyday for lunch and dinner, it's always nicer to call us first. You can sit outside too. Welcome.
