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

Very friendly and professional service the two times we have been there. Good food with nice selection of Spanish and Portuguese dishes with quite and extensive menu and wine list from Spain and Portugal. Good ambience but sit outside if you can. Only downside is it is a bit expensive (but then this is Switzerland) and it's a little stuffy... More

We where a big group of nine adults and three children that came relatively late to have dinner. They prepared a table for us in the terrace and brought us very quickly the food for the children that where tired and starving. Than everything went great. Very professional service. We would repeat!

This place was chosen by the owner of the company who invited me to Switzerland. I must say it was a good choice and a good day also, as there was a blue and jazz festival going on here. It was really nice. The ambience is nice and its better to be seated outside. We could not be out as... More

Their Lunch menu is very good. Good value for money. Dinner is also quite good, but I do not consider as gourmet. It is nice to have some Portuguese food from time to time for a change. Been here a few times, will go back again.
