A scenic journey leads you to this sensational vegetarian restaurant. Michel and Brigitte were attentive, friendly and polite with their service. Food was superb and felt 'home cooked'. Very cosy with Moroccan decor. Well worth a visit.

Great little B&B on a small village of the Alpujarra area. We didn't need the car on the four days we spent there : there are lots of walking trails to visit the area. This lovely B&B offers two rooms, beautifully decorated in a Moroccan style, each with a private bathroom and free wifi. The breakfast is included in the... More

If youve found yourself at this wonderful little place, then you wont need a review, But if youre looking for an experience, Seek this out. Its more than the food, or the location.

This small B&B and vegetarian restaurant is tucked away in the pretty village of Mecina in the Alpujarras. There has recently been a change of management – the new owners Brigette and Michel are warm, generous people who have created a relaxed and charming place to stay. I have put this review in both the ‘Restaurant’ and the ‘B&B’ sections... More

Jean-Claude is the most amazing chef! This isn't your bog standard veggie fayre - he offers interesting and sophisticated dishes. He also takes the time to talk through the menu with you and explain each dish. Both nights we visited L'Atelier, we were made to feel extremely welcome by Jean Claude (after 2 days he felt like a friend) and... More

This vegetarian restaurant was recommended by a local, but we couldn't find it on Tripadvisor. It's not just a bed and breakfast, it should also be featured as a restaurant in its own right. It sits in an alley of a whitewashed Alpujarras village and we sat outside on an early September evening and enjoyed a quiet, congenial, delicious meal,... More

L'Atelier is situated in the tiny town of mecina in a breathtaking area of the Alpujarras called "La Taha". We took the bus from Granada to Pitres and then walked down a rambling stoney path to little Mecina where we quickly found L'Aterlier tucked in to the corner of an old Berber home with a fountain and flowers out front....

We really enjoyed our long awaited holiday here. Very friendly with some lovely food and nice accommodation. Some peace & quiet, with plenty of walking and one of the few true vegetarian & vegan options that you will find in this part of Spain (outside of Granada & Malaga at least!) Jean-Claude is charming and offers plenty of help with... More

This is a very charming and very small hotel, however surprisingly enough the accommodation we got was spacious. This small hotel or B&B is located in a tiny but very charming little village with on the national park. The buildings are very old with lots of genuine character. The food was alway excellent with a very extensive menue. My partner... More
