“Quality food, quality service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

My husband and I ate here twice during our week holiday in Gaucin. The food is excellent, and the couple who run the restaurant, Lisa (front of house) and Richard (chef), together provide a highly professional yet intimate and personal dinning experience. The menu has 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 desserts which change every few months. The style of the food is international and is very good quality, tasty, well cooked, prepared and presented dishes. We very much enjoyed both of our evenings, especially the second evening when we had the place to ourselves (low season, not a chance in summer!), and we got to spend sometime at the end of the evening getting to know Lisa and Richard, thank you both for a lovely last evening in Gaucin, and we hope to return again.

“Amazing food and welcoming staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2011

La Fuente was recommended to us to try while we were away and I can see why! We went in the evening for my girlfriend's Birthday and the staff went out of their way to ensure that the evening was perfect. From the beautiful table on the terrace to the freshly prepared food it couldn't have been better (they even put a Birthday candle in her dessert!). We will definitely be going back on our next trip!

“Mmmmmmm!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

Having gone to the restaurant without booking we were a little disappointed to find that they were full, so we booked for a couple of nights later. We remembered the young lady who showed us to our table from our trip to Gaucin seven years ago, but were happy to learn that she and her husband now owned the restaurant and she continued front of house, whilst her husband slaved away in the kitchen! The menu is not extensive, four choices for starters, mains and puddings, plus cheese and biscuits - more of which I will come to later. The starters are around five euros and the fig, serrano ham, and cheese is divine (I had it on both visits). The mains are around 15 euros and the quality is excellent. I am assured that the Argentinian steak is the very best and cooked perfectly to order, but my lamb tagine was better than I ever tasted in Morocco. The sweets are delicious but the cheese and biscuits is just too much - my husband loves cheese but even he was overfaced, we were offered a 'doggy bag' to take it with us. With a complementary drink the evening was rounded off beautifully. The service is excellent and so impressed were we with our visit, we booked again for the night before we flew home. The perfect end to a wonderful holiday.

“Excellent food. Brilliant and welcoming staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2011

We were delighted to have chosen this restaurant for our 10th wedding anniversary while on holidays in the beautiful village of Gaucin. The welcome we got was second to none and the menu on offer was exceptional. We were delighted with the choice of food as well as the option to alter any dish to accommodate my vegetarian diet. My husband who is not vegetarian enjoyed his steak so much we had to book the following week so he could order the same meal again. We look forward to returning next year and booking La Fuente for our 11th Anniversary.

“Great food and great hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2011

We spent 2 weeks in Gaucin and dined out most nights. La Fuente was our favourite venue. The owners Richard and Lisa made us very welcome and were really hands on with their customers creating a really great atmosphere, the food was always well presented and tasty.
