Only for the playground

The main interest of this restaurant is it's amazing playground for the kids. And you'll need it to keep the little ones waiting for the food to come. Really slow service, and not really friendly. Furthermore, even though they have this great playground, they seem annoyed when a family with... read more

Good pizza, good meat, pasta rather disappointing. Very popular, so service can be slow. Fantastic playground for kids.

This restaurant could be a great one because the food is delicious but what kills it is the service, including the manager... I love taking my time to eat and enjoy but the waiting time here is ridiculous, 30 minutes to get drinks (and the wrong ones sometimes)... don't get me wrong, the waiters are very nice but the manager...

I have been going to this restaurant for the last 13 years (even when they were at the other location on the lake). Their Pizzas are great, the other Italian food splendid and the crew is very friendly. They have a nice garden with kids toys which makes their splendid terrace the perfect hang-out in the sunny summer (better make... More

The big advantage for us is that there is an enclosed play area in which to unleash the kids. The downside is the service. I couldn't accuse the staff of... More

We have been going to La Fontanell several times, but every single time the staff (more precisely the owner or head waiter) is obnoxious, arrogant and unfriendly. Its a shame as the location is nice and they have a playground. Although note that the fence leading to a road with lots of traffic has holes in it (why don't they... More
