We did find this little restaurant and went to eat a dinner. Clams cataplana and seafood rice were very good. And the service was good too. A family run restaurant was very cosy.

A lovely family run restaurant- not much to look at but the food and service are both great. Definitely recommend the chicken kebab which is massive.

This place is a must. If you're expecting fancy dining, look elsewhere. If you want excellent, local cuisine, you have to go here. To top it off, it is fantastic value. As a group, we paid around 60 Euros less here on the overall bill...More

We visited with friends on a recent winter trip and found the food and service okay. We had heard that staff can be rude at times but we didn't find that so all in all a pleasant dining experience with good authentic Portuguese food.

We love the Fonte, such lovely people that run it. The menu is limited but everything is cooked fresh. Fabulous kebabs, prawn, fillet steak, mixed meals - also cataplana casseroles.

Saw good reviews so decided to try this place. We should have walked when we met MR Happy the waiter... who looked at us as if we were rubbish. Asked for a table for 2 and got a shrug and a head nod to go...More
