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!

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

We had a very enjoyable dinner at L'Atelier. I am not a vegetarian, but the menu at L'Atelier was a bit different from the normal tapas fare and was very well cooked and presented. We ate outside, but the inside of the restaurant is very...More

It's rare to find such a creative restaurant in such a remote area. Not that this vegetarian food is "haute cuisine" but it's good and healthy and the couple there enjoys sharing with their guests. We simply spent a great time there.

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.
