Despite asking for & expecting grilled fish we got what were effectively fish gouging/fish fingers. Disappointing. Not cheap. I gather the pizza was good.

Visited this restaurant for a quick meal in mid December. It is not our first time to eat here. The food maybe halfway decent at an expensive price but this restaurant has the most sulky, sullen and rude staff you would hope not to ever meet. What does a simple smile cost. It feels as if they are doing you... More

By far the best restaurant in beau vallon both food wise as well as price wise. The fish and chips here is amazing and a huge portion for a very reasonable price. The pizza is amazing and unlike the other pizzeria near his served in a very reasonable time. The restaurant itself is extremely clean and the staff and the... More

We were very hungry and stoped there for an easy lunch. Pizza was good, pasta was ok, but the coconut pie was very nice and big (easily shared by 2). Too pricy as everything on the Island..

We had chicken / chips and fish / chips and both were poor. Over cooked and not great. However the pizzas looked good so perhaps best to stick to them. People around having pizza all had empty plates st the end !

We thought this place was a take away as the sign suggests outside, but it's a restaurant. Well apparently. The service was nothing short of shocking. Staff grunt at you. Snarl. And are extremely rude. Worst so far. If you don't want to work as a waitress, then don't!!! The food was awful. Chicken curry was basically 6 tablespoons of... More

We had pizza which was fine. However on another occasion we ordered chicken and chips and fish and chips, which were both dry and tasteless.

This is the best of the mid range restaurants in the area. The food is good and the portions are hearty. It's a perfectly acceptable option. However beware if the place is packed. It cannot cope with a full house. We waited 90 minutes for our food one evening.

This was the first restaurant we visited in the Seychelles and we were shocked at the prices. We later got used to this and La Fontaine is on a par with other restaurants. I would not recommend this place though. The food was rather bland and service was slow and not very friendly. £20 for a fish dish with plain... More
