After searching hard for good restaurants in Alicante finally we arrived at L’Atelier and it was a different class to all the others we tried.
First thing to say is that they only have 2 fixed price menus, the tasting menu of 6 or 7 smaller courses for 16 or 20 euros and a 25 euro menu of 5 larger courses so not a large choice but having the tasting menu we had 7 very good courses. First a small olive tapas and delicious home made bread rolls, then a soup course followed by a risotto and then sorbet. After that a delicious fish course, a meat course and finally dessert. So whilst each course was not large the sum was a deliciously varied and balanced well cooked meal that left us very satisfied. Together with a very nice bottle if Rioja and water all for 50 euros to me is very good value.
The ambience is also excellent, with a nice background soundtrack of trad jazz.
Another point is that for evening meals it is only open Thursday to Saturday so make sure you plan ahead. We asked our hotel to make a reservation and they told us the only available time was 8:30 so we waited until then, when we turned up there was only one table occupied so I don’t know why they would not take reservations earlier, if you make a reservation and want to go earlier then it is worth a try.
So if you are in Alicante on an evening when it is open and want a real restaurant experience then this is a must.
