The menu range was exceptional and we were spoilt for choice even before seeing and tasting the food. When each course appeared (and we had different choices for each visit), the presentation was imaginative and exciting and the tastes were truly outstanding--our taste... More

The reataurant nearest us, Cyreno de Bergerac, was booked out, so we ended up here at La Fontaine, and were so glad we did! Excellent cuisine. We had the set menu and the choices were plentiful and superbly cooked and presented! A lovely surprise was the free cocktail on arrival and another delicous little glass of liqueur at the end...

We were there with four adults and six kids and the service was very good, nothing bad to say. Food was terrific but still not too pricey even though some fine dining feeling around. Excellent in every way! Tournedos, chicken, fish, entrecote, all were tasty.

I got aware of the restaurant because I stayed in the connected B&B. After a successful business day I wanted to give myself a treat. And a treat it was. At that time 4pm the restaurant was almost empty so I had the full attention of the staff. I had scallops carpaccio, ris de veau and a selection of French... More

This restaurant, like many others in Krakow, is located in the basement which adds to the atmosphere. The food and service was okay, and the staff spoke fairly good English.

Came in as we liked the look of the menu. The place is a cellar restaurant and has many tables all in nooks and small rooms. The food is mainly french with some polish dishes. The service was very good. The food was delicious and very well presented. They even had a sweet trolley which had about 12 choices on... More
