Had dinner here one evening and had high expectations as the place had some good reviews. We were seated in the rear courtyard as it was a warm night and ordered a main course only as we already had a fairly substantial lunch that day which was just as well since the portions were not generous. We both opted for... More

Nothing to dislike here. The menu, the presentation, the food quality, the service, the surroundings particularly the décor in the cellar area, and not least the value for money. You will not be disappointed. The location almost on the main market square is also perfect.

We ordered Caesar salads, fish and meat. Everything was average...In salads there were poached eggs, meat was served with an awful sauce. Quite unfriendly service and gloomy atmosphere.

5 star food at very reasonable prices. Quality and presentation of food was simply first class. Slightly disappointing wine list but this place is well worth seeking out. Staff are brilliant and really make you welcome. Nothing is too much trouble.

We had two wonderful meals at this first class restaurant during our short stay in Krakow recently. 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.
