Few of the French restaurants in Cracow can boast a bona fide French chef, but La Fontaine is one of the lucky few. Situated just off the square in a charming medieval cellar, the restaurant rustles up ravishing dishes from the Gallic galaxy. With an enticing range on offer, taking in both fruits de mer and game, gourmets will have plenty to choose from. The restaurant also prides itself on its expertly prepared puddings. Lovers of wine are also in luck, as an extensive list is on hand, with bottles from across France, as well as Argentina, Chile, Australia in New Zealand. In summer you can eat en plein air in the courtyard.
Editor & Krakow Local
We were in Krakow second week of march 2016 en had dinner in Restaurant la Fontaine nearby the old market
we were quite disappointed when we saw the quantity of food that was served .We ordered bigos with seafruit and the quantity was minor as well as the quality, seafood was 1 coquille st Jacques and 1 shrimp and small quantity of bigos on a soup platter.
we ordered also Lamb stew, Navarin, there were 3 pieces of lamb in a small cocote and the vegetables were not what was announced in the menu carte and to little.
the quantity served of the navarin and vegetables were quite small although we payed full course dinner prices. For us a bad experience, not what you should expect from a Michelin recommended restaurant.
Freinds of us suffered the same bad experience
My husband and I are regular visitors to Kraków. We came upon this restaurant one evening while out for a leisurely walk and booked for the following evening. The food was excellent, service fantastic and attentive staff who seem interested in what they do. We have been back several times and have brought family and friends along. For the standard of food, presentation of dishes, service and genuine all round great experience this is one well priced eatery and definitely an unsung hero among the eateries of this fine city. I would highly recommend La Fontaine as a 5 star dining experience, but without the 5 star price tag.
I ate at La Fontaine last night and experienced a truly memorable meal. Attentive service, good wine cellar and the food was the best I have experienced in Krakow. The gourmet salad starter (scallops, king prawns & foie gras) may sound OTT but it really works & is delicious. The duck fillet with wild mushrooms was perfectly presented and an absolute delight. I'm back in the UK tonight, but I wish I was back at La Fontaine to explore more of the menu. I recommend it, i'd call it superb.
