“Just gets better....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

It is four years since we first came here and every time we are in Esperaza we just keep coming back. Food of great simplicity, but fresh and tasty at reasonable prices. Over the years the menu has developed - but the relaxed atmophere stays the same. Very family friendly and the 'pichet' white is among the best of its type - from a local vineyard and very drinkable. Go, and go again.

“Two nights in a row”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2011

I enjoyed L'Atelier so much last night that I went back tonight (and I have a car, so I am not "stuck" with the three restaurants here in Esparaza).

The food is very good and very reasonably priced. Both evenings I had more than enough to eat and 1/4 litre of wine for about 11 Euros.

But more than the quality, selection and value, I enjoyed the atmosphere--last night out on the patio, tonight indoors. Both staff and other diners are friendly.

Because it is in front of the pottery studio (run by the owner's mother), decor consists mostly of interesting and attractive pieces made on site.
