I booked a few weeks before our arrival and sent in a check for the room deposit. They don't take credit cards at this time. No problem. I sent a check as I did when Dmytrii and Sara owned it years ago. I asked for an email confirmation and received none. 2 days before our arrival I emailed and asked... More

We went as a group (6 of us) for Lobster Dinners to La Fonda's for my friend's Birthday. Was a nice restaurant, with a great view of the ocean. The Lobster Dinners were really good, and so were the drinks! We also met the owners of La Fonda's while we were there are they were a really nice older couple.... More

Dmytri and Sara are back ~ We are thrilled! Spent one night for my husband's birthday right after Labor Day. We live on the East Coast - but, La Fonda was his one wish! Just like before - fabulously delicious food, strong drinks and a gorgeous view. All rooms in Dmytri's La Fonda now boast new furniture, beds and linens... More

Quirky wonderful place! The food is fantastic, the rooms are rustic, the view is breathtaking!. I have been going here for the last 30 years and still love it every time. Dimitri and Sara are back. The south side of La Fonda is the place I like. They are the originators of this area. There are other places at La... More

We love LaFonda. Been visiting for years and years ---- since before the days when Sara and Dmitri had a telephone -- when you had to book by post card. I still have the LA Times article talking about the place from when Sara and Dmitri retired and sold it to the new owners. And we visited during their ownership... More

The food was average and the place seemed old and tired. Although we referred there by people in the neighborhood we were staying in, it was not really all that good. Not a lot of choices right here, but it is probably worth traveling for a better meal.

Husband made a two night reservation here after hearing good reviews from word of mouth. On arrival, I was terrified. From the outside and inside, the hotel and restaurant was horrible. Left the very next morning and lost out on a refund for the 2nd night. Our bedroom was awful. The heat coming in from the window facing the ocean... More

Went there for my birthday and I had3 lobsters to die for. Less than $25. Wife had the stuffed shrimp and maybe was even better. Be careful there are two Laa Fo,nda's right next to each other. Go to the one at hotel which is just south of the others Fonda. Totally different menus.

Stopped here for lunch while staying at Poco Cielo a couple of doors down. The food was very good and so were the portions and the prices. Had a good margarita and my husband's Michelada was very tasty. I had shrimp with white wine, with fresh spinach, rice, and potatoes and came with a small bowl of black bean soup... More
