This place was one of Che Alex's restaurants. It was TOP on my list. Unfortunately, it is closed. There is another restaurant in the same location which I've been told is great.

Even though the restaurant is situated in a not so fancy location and the decoration is minimalist, the food is outstanding and the menu keeps changing with very modern takes on traditional local food. Not cheap but very different to most local restaurants.

I had been to the Atelier before but was not impressed with the prices. After a couple of years came back to celebrate Mother's day with 11 other relatives. A tough day for any restaurant, Atelier shone through with few issues. First, the place can be a little noisy but there is not much you can do about it. In... More

I had a good lunch last Saturday afternoon at The Atelier. The food was good, the service was good and the portions were big. Have that in mind when ordering appetizers. I enjoyed it and I recommend this restaurant.

We are regulars at Atelier. It is a simple restaurant with very good service, acoustics is rather poor but you come here for the food. Excellent. The menu has something for everyone and prices are reasonable. Wines list is very affordable. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to everyone but especially to those gourmet people that like to eat well.
