I loved that this restaurant was so small and so popular. The staff was very knowledgeable and encouraged us to try their recommendations without hesitation. And, without disappointment!

The fountain cafe is a small quanit restaurant in Port Townsend. The menu is extremely vaired, offering something for everyones tastes. My wife had the fettucine with smoked salmon which was very good, and I had the morrocan chicken (the chicken was great, however the risotto was a bit bland and overly cheesy). Service was good, and we were able... More

The four of us really enjoyed our lunch here - their offerings are varied and everything we had was fresh and totally delicious. Not inexpensive, but their portions are so large we kind of regretted not sharing ... but just 'kind of' - it was all so good, it would have been hard to share!

Last night we visited The Fountain Cafe to celebrate my wife's birthday. We've eaten there before and have never been disappointed. The food is always served hot and the tastes are just incredible ! The Fountain Cafe has officially become our favorite restaurant in Port Townsend.

A small place, well appointed... interesting menu and specials... but the surprise was in the excellence of the food and in the presentation. We went for lunch but the food is easily high-end dinner worthy.

This restaurant is exceptional. Even though we arrived at 8:00 and they close at 9:00 we did not feel rushed at all. The staff was extremly friendly and the food to die for. My husband had an appetizer and pasta and I had the Kale Ceasar and Paella. We could have had just an appetiser and shared a main. We... More

We would try everything on the menu if we lived close. We enjoyed Mussels Tapas, Mushroom Risotto and Rack of Lamb. Don't pass on the opportunity to have great food and service.

We enjoyed the friendly service and the meals. The Salmon special with a delectable relish, the Walnut and Gorgonzola penne, and the Cioppino were all delicious. The Oysters Guadalupe disappointed-breading was too heavy and needed lemon instead of lime. Overall, we liked the atmosphere and would come again.
