La Fontaine is a French restaurant just off the main square in Krakow. It is quite upmarket, serving what I would call à la carte food. There is a seating area outside which is beautifully lit up and very romantic and downstairs there are winding cellar rooms with little cubbyholes. We sat downstairs and received impeccable service. The menu is largely meat with some fish. Probably not the best place if you are vegetarian. There is a set menu for 64zl, which includes a starter, main course, and dessert. We received an appetizer from the chef before our starter, a good start I thought.
I went for the tapas selection to start, a little scary as it’s a selection from the day, meaning you don’t know what your getting till it arrives. Thankfully it was lovely, consisting of three small servings of pasta, soup, and quiche. For my main course I had salmon, but round our table there was goose, lamb, duck, beef, and chicken. I didn’t have a dessert but again the chef sent us a flavoured ice cup with some little sweets on the side. The staff were incredibly friendly and made sure we were attended to without being claustrophobic. For 10 people, with wine, beer and 2/3 courses each it clocked in at under £20 each.
