Best Authentic Cuban Experience: La Fontana

A true taste of Cuba is offered at La Fontana. There are three separate areas each with a different style. Delicious grilled meals are typically Cuban, the chicken teriyaki and the lasagne also go down a treat. The mojitos are stunning and packed with mint flavours and there are also a range of other cocktails to discover. The outdoor terrace has a relaxed atmosphere and there is often live music. Prices are sensible and the service is outstanding without fail.
