“Ok for steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

This is a bar/eatery on the main drag of the town. We have visited a couple of times and always opted for steak. The staff are friendly and pleasant. The menu is limited but is ok for an evening meal after a long day.

“Excellence local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Why are the Brasserie la Fontaine not on Tripadvisor before now? We were looking for a place to eat and a little by coincident we ended up at this for us local bar and restaurant. What a nice surprise. Conclusion first: great local food. The food tasted really homemade. It was fresh and very tasty. The portions were also of a decent size. Great value for money. Very friendly staff. Try out Brasserie la Fontaine!

This is a sports bar and restaurant. They have a spacious outdoor seating. Centrally located downtown. The first impression when we went in was a little "barish". They had tables for indoor serving and bar desk and relaxing areas. The place itself gave an impression of being "slightly worn out", but this was not an obstacle for good service and great food.

The staff was busy with quite a lot of guests, so it took alittle time before we got our food. Anyhow, it was well worth waiting. The menu had a good selection of both international and local dishes. We tested out some of the more local ones. The staff was so friendly and "genuine". They were very helpful and we felt very welcome and taken well care of.

So bottom line, do not judge the quality of the food of the first impression of a place (meaning that it did not give us the "white-tablecloth-restaurant" feeling when we stepped in). If we are ever in the vicinity again we will for sure have our meal here!
