Food here is great as always, have been coming to Portugal for over 15 years and we can't not go to this restaurant. They have a kids play area out the front, with swings, slides ect. Definitely worth a visit!

The food is excellent - on our second visit... More

We have visited Fontenario several times over the last 8 years and never had a bad meal. The food, service and atmosphere makes for an excellent dining experience and we will continue to visit the family run establishment.

The wine and food were both excellent so much so that on my second visit I took some great new friends to eat there too. Nothing is too... More

Once again on our annual trip to the Algarve we find this restaurant comes out on top. I think we have eaten our way through all options on the menu and have yet to find anything that disappoints. It is also excellent value. I can particularly recommend the swordfish - the portion I had was enormous. Also we loved the... More
