“Ok bit disappointed ”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 via mobile

Went in January 2014 for my husbands graduation, table Of ten- waiter didn't speak English so couldn't get the order of one Bottle of wine right - for a carafes plus a bottler therefore costing €36 instead of €24. My husband ordered confit of duck and there was a croquette of sorts which was raw we're not sure what it was supposed to be. The restaurant was busy due to they WIT graduations but the service was unfortunately slow and in attentive.

“Christmas Night Out”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

L'atmosphere was booked 2 weeks before for seven of us to go for the early bird. When we got to the restaurant we were put in a narrow corridor beside the toilets totally apart from all the other diners. When someone went to the toilet from the main part of the restaurant you could smell the toilet when the door was opened which does not lend to a great dining experience. We also had to move to let the other diners squeeze past when they needed to go to the toilet. When we asked to see the manager about how unhappy we were we were told at first that we could not see the manager, eventually she came to table and said that we should have specified that we didn't want tables by the toilet when we booked two weeks previously. The attitude of the staff was terrible and the food mediocre, dessert was nice. The fish that came with the stew was raw, the potatoes were not fresh and the chicken starter of the day was not enjoyed. Would never go there again. Am baffled by the amount of awards L'atmosphere has, don't understand how they got them? The sad thing is that most of us were regulars there but not anymore!

Lovely venue - small but it works. Menu is authentic French and it's delivered perfectly. Never leave this place hungry or broke! Would highly recommend it.
