This restaurant offered fantastic food I had the Fillet of beef with a pepper and mushroom sauce which was fantastic. The only downside was the service was slow. Very reasonable pricing and good sea views.

Perfect meals and friendly service. I would recommend pizza as well as the spaghetti carbonara. We have eaten every meal except for one whilst on a tour at La Fontana. It is exceptional.
