La Fontaine is situated in the Meikles Hotel and has a great menu and even greater, attentive and professional staff. The atmosphere is elegant, the service is great and the variety will suit most tastes. Do not visit this restaurant if you are on a diet... and come hungry.

A truly spectacular meal was had here. The attention to detail in the plating of the food is worth every cent paid. Beautifully prepared, seasoned, delicious food, presented by well trained waiters. An absolute treat.
