As a vegan, the grilled vegetable buffet felt like a dream come true. Paired with the beautiful views, yummy drinks, ocean breeze, and the charm of Capri - it was a five-star experience.

La Fontelina is one of the most beautifully sited places in the World to spend a glorious day. If you are lucky enough to be here once in your life to have the memory, that is enough! The food & the service are irrelevant. Although when I was there both were fantastic. Frito Calamari & a glass of sangria, what... More

Amazing views after a big hike down the hill from town. Take the boat from the port. Very expensive for mediocre food. Service was disjointed.

This a dream spot to hop among the rocks and terraces full of bikinis. Amazing food and view. Dip into the sea and tidal pools from the ladders. You will never forget your day here.

It was quite a walk to get to the restaurant, but it was well worth it. We sat at the edge of the patio, with gorgeous views. The food was delicious, tasted like it had been cooked by an Italian grandmother!

La Fontelina is a little piece of paradise in the paradise of Capri. A little hard to get to, but worth every stair step down and every stair step back up. Do not walk there unless you are in excellent shape, take a boat instead. Everything here is exceptional, the service, the food and cocktails, swimming and lounging. I recommend... More

We had a great lunch at this beach club on Capri! We arrived by boat and the restaurant's launch picked us up to take us to the dock. It was a very busy Sunday in September with beautiful weather. Lots of people were sunning on the rocks-great people watching and seeing the boats come and go. We had a great... More

Visited the restaurant with friends during our stay in Capri. When my friend did the booking she was given an option of a cabana or an umbrella and she chose a cabana including lunch. When we arrived there were two "sort-of-cabana" style spots already taken and the rest were umbrellas. At reception the staff had no idea of our booking... More

La Fontelian is the rebound beach club in Capri. The walk down to this spot through a wonderful pine forrest provides one of the most beautiful views in the world. Having gone there for over 25 years, we were always overwhelmed by the beauty and uniqueness of the spot. The lunch is excellent and the ride back to Marina Piccolo... More

Yes, the view is fantastic, the food, average and overpriced. By coincidence every reasonably priced bottle of wine was sold out - go figure. Service was rather unpleasant, perhaps after season fatigue, but I would expect a bit more at that price
