L'Atelier overlooks the enormous marina at St Cyprien. Dining is mostly [but not exclusively] on an open terrace complete with awning. On a warm summer day the setting is very attractive. Ten of us aged, from 93 to 6, had a weekday lunch there. Reactions varied a little but most of the food taken from the table d'hote menus was very good and pleasingly presented and creative. Hake on a bed of tomato coulis and John Dory [St Pierre] stood out. Despite the location we had one recidivist carnivore whose fillet was spot on. The children's menu was a straight option of fish or meat [steak hache] and frites; predictably eaten with alacrity. Deserts were neat, small and perhaps a little short on vibrancy. Local wines are always the best value in French restaurants and the rose was perfect for the al fresco meal.
Service was amiable considering the demands of 10 assorted anglophones if slightly eccentric. Delivery was measured, especially considering the restaurant wasn't especially busy. The bill came in at a little under 30 euros a head which is more expensive than many local restaurants but then the food was better and more refined. Overall this was a positive exoerience and I'd certainly go back again although probably not as a group of 10.
