Too Few Seats, Great Food

When in downtown PT this is my go to spot. Seats are hard to come by, but it is worth the wait. Good service, nice tight space, and really tasty food.

If your looking for a great little place for date night or a place to impress a foodie friend and your in Port Townsend then make a reservation for the Fountain Café. Reservations are almost mandatory especially on the weekends as they only have about 10 tables. Food is exceptional and artistic. Enjoy!

This would rate as one of my all-time best places. started off with Buffalo Sauce Frog Legs for an appetizer, then the Scotch Fettuccine. Excellent. My wife had the Capellini Amore and it was very good as well. It is a very small restaurant and reservations are helpful or be willing to wait.

We stopped by here for dinner on a warm Summer Friday night while staying nearby. The small space was quite full but we were lucky enough to get a nice table right by the front window.  We ordered the appetizer special of mussels in tomato and white wine sauce with French bread. Mains consisted of a duck salad, nicely seared... More

The food here was absolutely delicious. We were fortunate enough to show up at just the right time to get a table, and would definitely recommend a reservation, as it's a tiny restaurant- but so worth it!! The server was wonderful, and the meal was SO good. The roasted garlic and brie with crostini appetizer was one of our favorites,... More

This tiny little place gave us a wonderful meal. Our server was skilled and friendly. Unfortunately, a couple of our choices for wine were not available. Roasted garlic appetizer with crostini was tasty without being overpowering. The chipotle prawns were marvelous, and my husband was delighted with the duck breast that was on the specials board. We managed to get... More

I have been here twice. Both times the food was outstanding. I recommend any of their pastas. The place is a little cramped though and tables are very close to one another. Kept bumping into other chairs. The waitresses must hate that. It fills up so I think you need to make reservations.

Good Flavours, great service and totally worth coming back for. Our group had a variety of dishes, my rack of lamb was perfect.

Tiny restaurant with great food. In a town with several good restaurants, we almost always head back here. The food is reliably excellent, creative, and local.

The food was terrific and very interesting, and the service excellent. The cafe was crowded the night we were there and because Port Townsend was experiencing a heat wave, it was also hot, but the staff did everything possible to provide for diners comfort, including placing floor fans in open doorways. Three of us shared three appetizers and a dessert... More
