“excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

A return visit and just as good the second time. Warm and welcoming with excellent food served with smiles and humour. The quirky range of pictures are an added talking point

The Writer is extremely grateful for your continued custom - praise indeed!!
It is ALWAYS a pleasure to be of service as you are so complimentary - Chef is chuffed.
Until the next time.
THANK YOU.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Went to the Lake District this weekend and ended up in Ambleside on Saturday night
We didn't book anywhere to eat as there are plenty of restaurants in town
Wow were we wrong!!
Tried 5 restaurants all were busy and couldn't get us in
Anyhow we stumbled upon Atelier
Which was very busy but they got us in.
What a brilliant place to eat
I couldn't praise the food higher it was cooked to perfection and brilliantly presented
Haddock and crab cakes to start with a bite to knock your socks off served with a gorgeous dip
Then sea bass with prawn served over a creamy risotto
All washed down with lovely rose wine.
This was a dining experience not just a meal, I can't Praise this restaurant enough. It made our first visit to the Lake District a truly memorable one.
Well done Atelier.

“A fabulous meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We have just been to Atellier for the second time and found it to be just as good as the first time. Every course we have had here has been perfectly cooked and very tasty. The menu had changed but the standard remained high. The service was paced just right and very friendly. The pricing is very reasonable for the quality that is on offer here. Can't fault it and can't wait to go back very soon.
