Lovely French Night out in Edinburgh

A fun, well staffed restaurant with simple décor but stunning food. Very pleasant staff and a genuine "French" atmosphere. Excellent value for money considering the quality of the food,

We often go for fish or vegetarian but went for meat at Atelier that night. The steak was tender and delicious accompanied by smoked tomatoes and chips. The lamb dish was even better - deeply infused with flavors and very, very tender. I am guessing it was cooked sous vide and then finished in a pan. All the parts of... More

Celebrated our wedding anniversary here and we were not disappointed. Great food and staff were attentive and very welcoming.

What a smashing lunch we had at Atelier. The reason we booked it was that at the time it was no 1 restaurant in Edinburgh on tripadvisor so it was obviously doing something right. In the event we were not to be disappointed; extremely tasty and beautifully presented food in a delightful (if somewhat compact and bijou) setting. My only... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Edinburgh and were not disappointed. The menu for the set lunch time fare is limited but it was perfect for us - and amazingly inexpensive. We both thoroughly enjoyed three beautifully presented, excellent courses, great service and will definitely return next time we are in... More

Second visit to The Atelier and it is still the best food I've ever tasted. Highly recommend. Each plate is a work of art.

We visited yesterday for lunch. The food, service and ambience of this place was excellent. The wine list was extensive. We will most certainly return to this fab little place on Morrison Street.

This was our third visit to The Atelier. We ate with another couple. The evening started in the new and annoyingly frenetic gin bar further down Morrison Street so it was nice to reach the calm of the restaurant. The premises are small and all tables were occupied but despite this we did not feel it was over-crowded. Delicious sweet... More

The restaurant itself is very small so you must book in advance at weekends. The main course was top notch, delicious. However the starter was pretty grim. We ordered the foie gras was not tasty and it the whole dish was covered in too much oil. It sadly left a very lingering after taste too. The starters and deserts and... More
