Another french themed restaurant meaning “workshop” in French, situated in an inspiring Havana mansion Atelier is a contemporary space with a large main room and two balconies with numerous cushions. An antique hob outside and old sewing and adding machines inside give the place a retro feel.
Niuris Higueras is the manager and owner, who has long nutured her passion for exciting food: the menu changes every day. While Niuris is the inspiration, Enrique is the experienced chef and together they create an eclectic range of dishes, including falafels, pato confitado (duck confit), lomito de res con camarones y espuma de apio al olivo (sirloin steak with shrimp and celery mousse), conejo al vino (rabbit in wine) to cerdo asado (roast pork). Desserts are standard (flan, tarts, ice cream) but good. The food is consistently excellent, if a little unpredictable, as is the service.
