Fontana is really perfect concept! They have everything from breakfast to late night drinks and snacks. They also have good lunch/brunch. Its the place for latte mamas, but also good place to have business lunch. Only thing that is not so great is that the quality of food varies quite alot...

We visited Cafe Fontana today for brunch. And it was superb! Buffet-style brunch was awesome and fresh. Great value for money, 18€/person.

We wanted a small dinner near our hotel on a rainy weekend and found this large, comfortable, popular bistro. The atmosphere is inviting, the seats are comfortable, and the food is very good. We had a smoked salmon salad and a chicken panino the first night. On the second evening, we had a salmon bagel and a pulled pork panino.... More

If you aren't sure where to go, go Fontana! You can enjoy good lunch, dinner or have a cup of coffee with tasty cake. A la carte you can find variable options of portions; hamburgers, salads or steaks for example. In the evening it is hard to find seats and there is quite noisy.

The food was good, but unfortunately there was too little of it. The lunch was buffet style and they were out of everything all the time so we had to wait several times to get food. The customers seemed unhappy about the situation.

I disagree with some reviews here; we liked the lunch. Nothing fancy but : 10 € and you get salads, main course and dessert including coffee. It's a good value ! The athmosphere is nice and service is good. I'll be back for the lunch ! :)
