A wonderful small restaurant near town center, L'Atelier never disappoints. The staff is friendly and the food always fresh and tasty. The decor is cheerful and the play area for children is a lovely touch.

We go to L'Atelier regularly and it never disappoints. Tasty filled pancakes, savoury and sweet, with a range of specials and salads also. Really good value for money. Friendly, efficient and speedy service. Highly recommended.

We went here with some friends and had a lovely relaxing evening. It was mid-week and off season, but the restaurant was half full and popular with the locals. Needless to say we all ate the house specialities of galettes and pancakes and drank wine produced within a couple of miles of the restaurant. Only word of warning is that... More

Didn't seem to be too many choices of places to eat in this town... but who cares when there's a Breton restaurant serving crepes and cider? The food was good, the cider was good, the service was good and they also do a nice line in pottery. If you have kids there's even a little play area inside.

Been here for lunch maybe a dozen times. Great crepes and salads. Tried a daily special once (chicken in mushroom creme sauce) and it was excellent. Friendly staff. Crowded during the season so you might make reservations then. I keep going back because it's good. But make sure you understand what is on your crepes when you order, there's a... More

Visited for lunch as a party of four. Three of us went for savoury and one for sweet. I enjoyed my galette but I would not eat one everyday. The restaurant specialises in crepes and galettes.

Visited L'Atelier twice for lunch last week whilst on holiday in Esperaza. The food was very good and the service attentive and quick despite the restauarant being very busy the first time we went.

Early lunch on a Saturday before visiting the Dinosaur museum with family. Friendly welcoming service. Wide ranging menu. Kids included with books and toys available in this warm and cosy restaurant. Food was delicious, reasonably priced and served promptly. A great place!

Thankfully we had previously booked our table for 7 as it was a very busy Saturday evening. Service was very quick and with a smile. You always receive a warm welcome from Nightingale. Our granddaughters loved the cheese and ham crepe followed by ice cream and at only €7 very good value as a soft drink was also included in... More
