Description: 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.

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 wonderful meal

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 very easy to order. Menus also in different languages.
We called in for a late lunch and had the spiced chick pea dish and cheese risotto, both of which were lovely. However, the star was the dessert.
You know how you are always disappointed having ordered a tiramisu, never quite what it should be, we'll try this one, it's excellent. Best we have ever had.
The place is tiny so do book at busy times or if coming a distance.
It's tucked away a bit, but all you need to know is that it is in the street behind the main road through the village.
We are not veggies but will be definitely be going back.

Had a lovely lunch here as a half way stop on a beautiful walk through the Taha villages. Diverse and delicious vegetarian menu, friendly service and lovely surroundings.
