This restaurant is quite good. We were there 4 times. The atmosphere is really nice, the food is quite tasty. Espesially, I like duck with confetur and a salad with goast cheese. I also recommend you to take Sangria. The only minus was rather slow service.

Before we visited this restaurant we did read mixed reviews. What its not, is a Michelin starred restaurant. What we got was good honest food at sensible prices. Nothing fancy, but suited our requirement. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the service, quick and good. As a restaurant, they must be doing something right as on the two nights... More

Six of us went to La Fonda on Friday 23rd January 2015. The restaurant was busy but they managed a table for us. Service was quick, the food we thought was good value.... main courses under 10 euros ! The house wine was better than a later bottle at twice the price. The final bill was 154 euros for 3... More

Went in with my wife at about 6.30, and the place was already starting to fill up. We didn't have to wait for our table but by the time we were halfway through our meal people were queuing, and when we left there was a queue of about 20 people. The food came quite quickly and was delicious. We shared... More

We were there on Sunday evening Feb 15, 2015. As we approached there was a line of people waiting outside to get in. This was recommended by our hotel as being a good restaurant, so we decided to wait. Well we waited for about 40 minutes until told to go inside and up the stairs. When we got up the... More

The place looks fancy but it's actually pretty cheap. We ordered two 13-euro menus: one salad with ham, one fideua, one paella for two, and two cremas catalanes. The manu also includes bread, olives and two drinks (we had a quarter of white wine and a beer). You can choose your paella (seafood, chicken, rabbit...). The food was very tasty... More
