The place was busy on a Saturday night. The staff was welcoming and efficient. We had very good mussels. Then a nice little salad. Lots of chardonnay. A little pricey. The mushroom risotto was excellent. Hot and rich.

We will make a special trip to PT in order to eat and this tiny wonderful restaurant. It is open for lunch and dinner and I think, occasionally for brunch. I haven't visited in about 6 months, but over the past 10 years or so, the food has been outstanding. There are generally a couple of specials and then the... More

I thought this place was excellent. It is very small and there are only a few tables. We had the appetizer special which was a medley of shellfish with a Chardonnay broth. We had to have a second order of bread to sop up the tasty broth. Our entrees were flavorful and large. The cooks work their tails off back... More

My wife and I were visiting Port Townsend during a little getaway. A good friend of mine is with the Chamber of Commerce and met us for dinner that night. My wife is unable to eat seafood, so that limits our choices. Thankfully, my friend picked the perfect place. The cafe is an intimate space that is perfect for a... More

Great little space a street or two from the water. Nice atmosphere, good service. I ordered the shrimp special on salad. So much cumin I couldn't eat but a few. I love hot food but this was so over powering you couldn't even taste the big fat shrimp. What a shame to ruin a good product with an overload of... More

This small bistro is a relaxed but high quality dining experience. The interior is funky and the staff are casual but efficient and always friendly, but the food is...well...”outasight”. You will feel welcome and well taken care of. The menu is a delight and prepared to perfection. Good wine list, too! Port Townsend is known for its many good restaurants,... More

Mix and match and see what you like best. A great desert place. Typical ice cream prices for above-typical ice cream.

Arriving into Port Townsend we were checking the internet for the best place for dinner and Café Fountain came up. We immediately called for reservations and were glad we did. Parking is on street so wear your walking shoes as it may be a bit of a stroll to get there. This little converted Victorian café had a total of... More

Went here during the film evening and lucky enough to find a table. Service was good and some interesting dishes, which were a little complicated with perhaps too many ingredients. But still a good experience.

This dish is a must have when visiting Port Townsend. 1 block off Water Street but worth the walk. My wife had a Coho Salmon Sandwich that was cooked to perfection. Very eclectic place with a very warn staff.
