Great meal and wine and good value business lunch! Portion sizes look small at first but are very satisfying and the 3 courses left us pleasantly full...

We visited this restaurant earlier in the year when in Scotland for the Edinburgh tattoo convention.

We had reserved a table, which is definitely recommended if you intend to dine here due to the quaint size of the restaurant and the demand for tables. We were pleasantly surprised to find an affordable menu with a good choice of wine and non-intrusive attentive service.

The food served here is local, wonderful and of the highest quality and yet this is an understated quaint restaurant which needs no gimmicks. Just really amazing food and friendly service.

Considering we were in town for the tattoo convention and ourselves are used to drawing some attention to ourselves, the staff were so polite and professional towards us, I appreciated that most of all.

Thanks so much for the perfect food and fine service!

I highly recommend this restaurant if you happen to find yourself in or around Edinburgh.

Ate recently on a busy Friday night with partner. Restaurant is on an unassuming street not from Haymarket Station. Pretty easily accessible both on foot or by public transport.

Restaurant is small but the tables aren't crowded in, plenty of room from other guests. All the staff were friendly and helpful, looked rushed off their feet. Menu is small but pretty varied.

Food itself was excellent, everything cooked well, flavoursome and presented beautifully. Whilst I'm not sure it competes with the likes of Castle Terrace or No. 1 at the Balmoral with regards to quality or complexity, everything was very good and at a very reasonable price.

Have seen it mentioned that the food was overpriced, couldn't disagree more with this assertion. Was pleasantly surprised when the bill came to see how cheap it ended up being for what was very good food.

Would certainly recommend giving it a visit, but would also recommend making a reservation if going during the weekend.

My husband and I went to the Atelier on a recommendation from the hotel we were staying at. We were not disappointed. The food, atmosphere and staff were all excellent. We went on a Wednesday evening and it was full (we luckily got in) so looks as though booking is essential. We didn't have dessert as we were too full from the starters and main courses, but from the looks of other people's plates, they looked amazing. I would definitely go back here when in Edinburgh.

My husband and I had a nice dinner at this restaurant. It is a very small restaurant, so definitely make reservations. The food was quite tasty and fairly imaginative.
