When this cafe closed many years ago, we were all sad. This was a great hang out spot, good sheesha, food and drinks. The one fine day, out of the blue, i heard that La Fontana was back. I didn't waste a minute, going up those elevators all the way to the top. It was a cold night, so we... More

Such a nice restaurant. With high class finish. The outdoor Terras is a mind relaxing. I recommend trying the mix grill food and assorted hot mezza. They have shush as well.
