return visit to our favourite local restaurant. Wonderful food, delightful staff in cosy surroundings. What more could one ask for? This has become a firm favourite in this household.

Salvador Dali once said, 'Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it!.' Whilst the Writer personally agrees with the statement ,that you have dined with us on a number of occasions would suggest that atelier's desire to achieve high standards is moving in the right direction.
Chef, in particular would like to sincerely thank you from the bottom of her heart.
Thank you once again.
a bientot.

“Birthday and anniversary celebration.”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Good location, excellent menu choice, excellent food and friendly service. Recommended to us by our hotel and we were not disappointed. Only regret is that it's too far to go every week.

“Delicious souffle”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Wanted to eat here having read all the good TA reviews. Lived up to my high expectations. Beautiful main courses, we went for the duck and the steak, two plates that were virtually licked clean. Extra veg was a good recommendation from the friendly staff. Then THE most amazing white chocolate and strawberry souffle, just divine. A memorable meal all round.

'Life is a long lesson in humility.' (James M.Barrie), and a such a thoughtful review contributes to that lesson for atelier.
A heartfelt thank you from both Staff and, especially Chef, for the affirmation that our little establishment is on the right track. Your plaudits put a smile on everyone's face this morning.
Happy to have been of service. Appreciate the recommendation.
See you again.

“great wine, service and food”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Small but perfectly formed bistro/restaurant serving good quality food, great wine and the waitress was able to offer advice on the wines through experience rather than what it says on the back of a bottle. Mussels followed by steak with no room left for what looked to be very good deserts, would I recommend it? definitely

The Writer sends you a BIG hug for taking the time to post such a magnanimous review!
Both Chef and Staff are thrilled that you were happy with the whole experience.
Delighted that you approved of the wine suggestion - the Writer is no Sommelier but does like a tipple - SOMETIMES, honest!!
Next time, leave room for a dessert - they're yummy, and thank you for the recommendation.

“Fantastic Ambleside Restaurant”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Loved this restaurant, the food hit the spot and the service provided by two lovely ladies was fantastic.

Can definitely recommend the fillet of beef and the lamb, both meltingly tender and very tasty....compliments to the chef!

Would love to go back next time we're in Ambleside.
