What a (good!!) surprise to find a veggie restaurant in this tiny village. Whether you're 100% vegetarian or just want a break from Spanish 'jamón' , don't hesitate to visit l'Atelier! We enjoyed a great lunch on the terrace, with nice things on the menu,...More

This place is up some steps from the main road and it took us a couple of minutes to find it. We received a warm welcome from the French couple who run it (who speak some English) and we enjoyed the vegetarian food: grilled aubergine...More

We came upon this restaurant completely by chance and I am very glad we did. The owners are extremely welcoming and the delicious food is prepared with love. The highlight of our trip to the Alpujarras.

L'Atelier is a small vegetarian restaurant in a very old house of Mecina Fondales, a typical whitewashed village of the Alpujarras. The house offers 2 guest rooms. We cook fresh organic local products we get from nearby small orchards. Brigitte offers dishes from Morocco, India, Asia, and mediterranean specialities, all of them with authentic taste. Conclude your meal with any of our exquisite homemade desserts. We open everyday for lunch and dinner, it's always nicer to call us first. You can sit outside too. Welcome.
