Excellent service and food

Amazing service with friendly servers. The food was great! We ordered paella burrito, tacos, bistec and soups. All delicious! The bartender needs some review of the drinks recipes though.

From fresh salsa to yummy spicy fish tacos, this little gem in Midtown is so good. I have yet to go and NOt be HAPPY with my food and service and they have great margaritas.

I guess people like this place because it's cheap? They do a variety of Spanish style foods and all are too salty yet bland. Really bad. I guess if you just wanted ships and salsa and a margarita it may be ok.

I have been hearing about La Fonda over the years, but mired in the far north suburbs, have not had an opportunity to visit until I met a friend visiting Atlanta who was staying downtown. We dined on the covered upstairs patio, early for dinner. Noise level did not interfere with conversation, the service was fine-not memorable in a good... More

I have been going to la Fonda for over twenty years now. I love the paella and the Cuban sandwich. The salsa is always fresh with a nice cilantro flavor. The cheese dip and guacamole always start the meal off right! Definitely worth visiting one of their locations when in Atlanta.

Everything was excellent!!! The service was great and i enjoyed the outdoor dining option. The spices they used compliment the food perfectly.

We were going to get pizza next door and after seeing the long line decided to walk across the street and check out La Fonda. We had really good salsa and chips followed by two huge cuban themed entree's. I had the pork chops (some of the most flavorful I've had) with great black beans on the side. My wife... More

This is a place that tries to combine Mexican, Cuban, and Spanish food under one roof. It looks decent on the inside. My girlfriend and I decided to try it since it is next door to Fellini's. We both ordered horchata while I ordered chicken tacos with chipotle sauce and she ordered shrimp and chicken paella. The chipotle sauce was... More

I've eaten here many times over the years, always for lunch, and it is consistently delicious. Their complementary chips are fresh and their salsa very fresh and habit-forming. The menu is Cuban/Mexican and varied. I almost always order the Cuban Reuben, a delectable sandwich of chicken, cheese, and slaw on thick bread heated in a press. Black beans and rice... More
