Fontana has been on the go for many years and continues to be popular and provide fine food at reasonable prices. We were there last evening with another couple and were well satisfied. Whilst not big, there was not an empty table in the place. The staff are pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. They have a "supper" menu at £19.95 for three courses and both the ladies chose from that and were well staisfied. My friend and I ate ala carte and were equally pleased. We had two bottles of a very good Crianza from the house wines and two quarter bottles if Prosecco and the total bill came to £40 a head, which is not bad for such fine cuisine.
Worth a visit!

Sorry this review is so late, but I've been meaning for sometime to write some nice words about Fontana. My wife and I were married in Northern Ireland in March 2013. I'm American, she's from Belfast, so we wanted to do something more 'traditional' for the Yanks. My parents hosted a rehearsal dinner on the Friday evening and let's just say it was amazing. Fontana were so excellent in catering to our needs. We actually had more people than we reserved seats for and sure enough they worked around it. I can't thank them enough. Well done guys!

Simply sublime.... We were made to feel so welcome by the wonderful staff and service was first class all evening. Took us an age to decide what to eat as we wanted everything on the menu. Foie gras, hot smoked salmon and cream cheese stuffed courgette flowers to start, lobster Thermidor , duck breast and crispy belly pork with scallops, all beautifully presented and hazelnut panacotta, prune and Armagnac tart plus a cheeseboard, wines, port desert wines all perfect, what an amazing culinary experience. We will most definitely be returning......
