Unfortunately this review relates a time to when La Fantasia were located at the Dry Arch. We haven't eaten in the restaurant since they moved closer into town. The food on that visit was delicious...I can't fathom why we haven't been back since. Everyone we've spoken to says the food is still... read more

We ate in la fantasia last evening and we could not rate everything about our experience highly enough. We had 2 coeliacs in our company and 3 small kids and the chef and waitress did everything to accommodate us. The knowledge and honesty of gluten free from the chef left us totally confident in his cooking, and we were not... More

We decided to eat here one Saturday night as there is good parking facilities and it is in the center of Letterkenny town. When we arrived there was one table occupied downstairs but when we asked could we have a table for two we were informed they were fully booked and the waitress would have to check with the chef...

Have been a regular customer to this place for the past few years, not anymore!!! Standards have slipped! 'The customer is always right' does not apply here. 'The chef is always right' does!!!!!!!

The food on that visit was delicious...I can't fathom why we haven't been back since. Everyone we've spoken to says the food is still delicious, in the new Justice Walsh location.

Absolutely incredible food, large portions, and very reasonably priced. Great early bird menu also and the staff are always friendly. We have occasionally had to wait quite a while for our food, but only on a saturday night or if it's very busy, and the food is always worth the wait. Would 100% recommend.

Was eating there as a group for a friend's birthday. Food was really good, not overly expensive for what you're getting and there is a nice enough atmosphere in the place. However, the initial 40minute wait for the starters, we then had another 45minute wait for our main courses. A lot of the mains were either incorrect or took an... More

Sublime main course of trio of fish and Italian meat balls very good .....However neither starter was good value nor had good flavour. Toast smeared with pate disappointing and if I hadn't ordered goats cheese would not have known I was eating same. Service and house white very good.
