Brilliant little rocky beach area with easy access to the sea. The 391 steps down to it are well worth the journey as there's a great vibe and a superb restaurant here. The entry price is pretty steep when you add in umbrella and towels...More

How many can say that they actually dined and sunbathed on the cliffs of the Mediterranean Sea? And I do believe that The Fontelina bases their whole existence on this fact. However, when in Capri... I had lunch here and enjoyed, the fresh food, people...More

Absolutely perfect place to dine....if you have a boat anchored close by. Beautiful food, exquisite view, polite, respectful service. Would highly recommend. However, reading some of the reviews here, if you have to scale the hill to get here, perhaps not as enjoyable.

La Fontelina is a must-see in Capri, although expensive. We reserved 3 days ahead for sunbeds and lunch. The service and the food were great!

This restaurant/beach club is in a great setting. You can get there by walking down a steep trail from Capri. You can also get there by boat from Marina Piccolo. Open air setting that has a great wine list and serves whatever is in season....More

While the rest of Capri didn't really appeal to me (too many tourists, too many crappy little stores selling junk), this side of the island is gorgeous. La Fontelina is well known - a wonderful beach club - fairly rustic although it is known for...More

This was our first time in Capri and I had read several reviews about La Fontelina and was keen to try it. Per their website, you can only book by calling 2 days in advance, I was nervous that we may not have any luck...More

This is a destination restaurant - on the way you'll see some beautiful vistas of Capri and take some photos. We found the food was tasty, the service attentive and the prices very reasonable. It's all about the ambience - there aren't many restaurants in...More

It's all about reservations. Just tell them what you want and the staff will handle it. I wouldn't stress, the whole idea is to relax and the Fontelina staff will handle everything.

I don't think that possible because of the limited amount of time you have and La Fontelina is not equipped for sip and dip excursions. Changing facilities and swimming areas are for guests that reserve space.
