Delicious and authentic

We ate at the La Fonda on Howell Mill Road this weekend. Don't let the outside of the restaurant give you pause, trust me on this one. My husband, young son, and I shared the paella for two and it was plenty for the 3 of us. The paella was served in an iron skillet, I love iron skillet... read more

Although there are several La Fonda restaurants around Atlanta, I typically eat at the one in Buckhead. Nothing fancy, but it is a great local place with good service. While the menu does have some Mexican items, it is truly Latin - Cuban and Spanish. I think I have tried most of the items on the menu and have not... More

The food is excellent. It's a limited menu that is seriously Latin, so you have to know that going in. Also, often no A/C. It's my go to local spot to sit outside & get some comfort food I really like. The margaritas are 1st class too.

My brother used to live in Atlanta and told me I need to try La Fonda Latina. I found one around Buckhead and got to sit outside and enjoy my dinner. I had to go with the classic on their menu - paella. And margaritas. Delicious. I was alone, so I felt I got even better service that night. Great... More

What a great authentic restaurant. If you are craving ?Cuban or Mexican food, this us a definite go to location. From the vegi paella, to the Cuban sandwich varieties, or just your arroz con pollo, everything is great. The plantains and tostones are great starters. The combo frozen margarita / sangria is fabulous. Don't miss the gland. Entire party of... More

We didn't eat this location, but we ordered take out to carry with us to our hotel for our anniversary stay. The food was delicious and authentic. We ordered the ARROZ CON POLLO and the BOCADILLO LATINO ( a cuban sandwich). Great food and we didn't wait too long for them to cook the food. We hope to return and... More

A little swayed to almost dine elsewhere due to the dark appearance and the small size of La Fonda in driving by, we decided to try it anyway and we are certainly glad we did. I had the Paella, and it was excellent- it could've been a touch more authentic but for $10, it was a great bargain. I would've... More

We eat here once a week- an Atlanta staple. The kids love it and the patio is perfect for sunny afternoon margaritas. Fish tacos are the bomb.com, and you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I recommend the sangrita (a mixture of frozen margarita and sangria) along with jalapeno cheese dip to cure what ails you. Love.

Our daughter took us here. Really good classic Cuban sandwich. Service was good, the restaurant is spotless, and a great menu selection.

This place never disappoints! We went on a busy Friday night and there was immediate seating available. Chips and salsa were brought within 30 seconds of sitting down and there was the waiter taking our drink order. They have 1/2 pitchers of beer which we really like with the Mexican fare. Their Talapia Fish Tacos are the best we have... More
