Our son recommended Atelier to us, and we thought he was exaggerating how good it was. In fact it was even better than we were told, and proved a culinary delight. The atmosphere was excellent and the service friendly, and we were made to feel like special guests not just customers. It was very pleasant not to feel rushed, and that the table was ours for the night if that's what we wanted - not everywhere is like that! But most importantly the food was really outstanding. I'm a self-confessed steak lover, and its no small thing for me to say that the fillet of beef was the best I've had. Simply melt-in-the-mouth. My wife was of the same opinion regarding her lamb dish. We both had the crab cake starters, and found them very tasty, with a hint of spice that worked very well. The desserts were special too, my wife had the soufflé which came with a delicious creamy ginger sauce, and I had a beautifully presented cappuccino mousse, which was really superb. The best meal we have ever eaten in Ambleside, quite a compliment as we had lived in Ambleside for 40 years!

Great to hear from more local people that they really enjoyed the atelier experience. Thank you for being SO generous with the compliments and your comments have been passed on to the Chef and the upstairs staff. Being local we hope you'll be back!
