It is hard to review a restaurant that is never open. We have been in Ambleside 21 times this year and this place has never been open once. Still has the name over the door and tables & chairs inside though.

This front room type restaurant came quite well recommended for its good food, the menu is ok but not that inspiring, we opted for the crab cakes which came with a Thai sauce and some oriental salad - ok but nothing special. The rump of lamb for the main course we asked for it to be Pink and was told... More

The food and service was good. Worth trying if you are in the area. Due to the amount of weekenders etc I find the standard in Lake District not all it could be,possibly because they don't rely on return business so much. Atelier were a cut above this with nice,seasonal menu and friendly staff

Unfortunately I cannot rate this restaurant as it was shut on the evening we came to Ambleside. We saw the restaurant in the afternoon and knew it had excellent reviews so were looking forward to enjoying our anniversary dinner that evening the 20th August. There was nothing to tell us the place was shut that evening, no timetable either. Another... More

We have come back to this restaurant several times and it has never failed. The menu is great and the food is delicious. Also they are well aware of Ceoliac (intolerance to wheat) and it has a nice ambiance. The staff are very nice and the service is good. I will be coming back again next year!

The food was good and the front of house team was friendly; but it was nothing particularly exciting. The waiting staff could have been more attentive - they would sell more! I wouldn't rush back - there was nothing particularly wrong with it, it was just a bit run of the mill.

This was something different from the other restaurants in Ambleside. Quality food and not just some fish and chips and burgers. Here you get excellent fresh ingredients presented nicely on your plate. Nice daily suggestions and very friendly service. A perfect evening!

Dinner 4 adults 15 August. Celebrated my 70 birthday with my wife and two sons and chose Atelier following TripAdvisor reviews. Location was less than 50 metres from our B&B and near town centre. The greeting we received followed by the attentive service was much appreciated. The food and wine was to our taste and proved good value for money... More

A rainy night in Ambleside and we were left standing by the dripping coat stand whilst the only waitress finished chatting to diners. Not a great start. Having seen the desserts and not being too thrilled with the choice of starters we all decided to go for mains & desserts. Rump of Lakeland Lamb came with steak knives: not a... More

I took the missus here for her birthday based on the reviews I read here. Couldn't agree more with the general consensus; food was excellent, as was the service, atmosphere, and price. Would highly recommend to anyone, and we'll definitely be back. Plus I'm in the missus' good books for once now ;)
