Was looking forward to this vegetarian place, but all closed down. I have heard they are opening a new place Attica or Attico so will seek this place out too.

We liked this restaurant for it's ambience, view, service and good food. My wife had the Indian dish and I the pasta. Good food and good value. A wonderful place to enjoy a special meal with your spouse and the surrounding beauty of Gaucin.

Having eaten there on our last night in Gaucin, the wait was well deserved. Superb food with brilliant, caring service. Would recommend it to anyone! Many thanks, Steve from Chester.

How lovely to sit outside in October, and if it becomes a little cool, Lisa is on hand with a blanket! We both had steak for our main course which we understand is "aged" by the chef in house. It was one of the best steaks I have had, very tasty and tender. Done as requested medium rare, which often... More

We booked in to La Fuente on the last night of our week in Gaucin. We had tried to get into the restaurant earlier in the week but found it to be fully booked. Undoubtedly this is a popular restaurant and perhaps my view is somewhat jaundiced by the fact that it rained on the evening we dined outside on... More

Thank you for your feedback and it certainly was a great shame it rained that evening. We find it hard to understand why you tried, with some determination, to dine with us when our menu and the number of choices on offer are clearly posted outside the restaurant door. You booked knowing the food was not all Spanish and that... More

Having visited 6 years ago we were so disappointed with La Fuente. The service was good but the food was very poor.

We are very sorry to hear, only now on tripadvisor, that you were disappointed. We wish you would have said something at the time as we certainly would have tried our best to ensure you left happy and satisfied. It would also be more helpful if you could have been more specific in your criticism of the food, what you... More

We visited this restaurant on the first night of our 3 night stay in gaucin. We were met inside by Lisa who took us to a table outside. She immediately chatted with us and from there on gave us a great service throughout. The menu was limited but the food was delicious. My partner had the steak and said that... More

This is easily the best Restaurant in Gaucin and possibly in this part of Spain. From a wonderfully friendly welcome, a great area to sit and eat with views over the town and to the Med. The service was perfect, attentive but not "in your face", friendly and professional. Te menu was maybe slightly limited but a good range of... More

Looking to eat locally we weren't initially attracted to the restaurant as the limited menu had a cosmopolitan feel, no tapas or paella in sight. However, having taken the plunge we couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. The English owners were wonderfully welcoming, led us through the building to a quaint and romantic setting, for an outstanding meal. The menu... More
