The menu seems to be a combo of Spanish and Italian dishes. Service was great; food was good. At the start, they serve your choice of rolls with 3 types of homemade butter: salted, paprika and garlic. The butter was really hard, however, so it was hard to get a good spread. The rocket salad was fresh, with shaved parmesan... More

It's a nice place, just downstairs from the medieval castle. Food is ok, but there is better stuff around. My advice: avoid fish.

We sometimes go there for the lunch buffet "all you can eat" on Fridays. Also the à la carte dishes are delicious.

Lovely Iberian restaurant in Rapperswil situated in the square below Schloss Rapperswil. Visited for lunch, they have a menu which changes daily as well as some regular items. However for me the lunchtime Tapas Buffet was the reason for 5 stars. It's great, and has hot and cold sections, very comprehensive from salads, grilled vegetables to spare ribs and garlic... More

We chose La Fuente for a family special occasion and were not disappointed by any of the fine Spanish and Portuguese dishes that we chose. The ingredients were all of top quality and were expertly prepared and well presented. Service was pleasant and attentive. Prices appeared to be normal for a restaurant of this quality in Switzerland (but are very... More

If you like Spanish cuisine, you are certainly right in this restaurant. Just be aware that you don't just pay for the dish, but also for the name, the reputation and the location you are at. For what you get, the prices are on the upper limit.

A great place to have meet :-) They serve an Entrecote for 2 which is absolutely fantastic. The location in heart of the old town of Rapperswil makes it an absolute highlight.

We have been to La Fuente on many occasions and have not been disappointed. The food is good and by Swiss standards fairly priced. The sea bass cooked in oil and garlic is consistently delicious. The staff are friendly and look after their guests with care. The restaurant is clean and comfortable. We are always very happy to return.

We happened to trip over this restaurant and found it to be a gem, the food was excellent and the service pleasant, the manager came over to us and spoke broken English but made an effort to communicate making sure we were satisfied. We recommend this place for the traveler. After the long boat ride over to Rapperswil we were... More

We were here for dinner on the Valentine's Day. Although they provide special menu for the special day, we opted for others as the set menu was too much for us. Assorted Spanish seafood rice came with a big clay plate - the rice was in soup with freshly tasted mussels , prawn , and fish . After I finished... More
