A very very good restaurant with an amazing valley vista, attractively presented and run by a man that clearly loves what he's doing. Don't miss it!!

I went to Fonte Nova once and then kept repeating and even took a friend / work-partner there - who was just as marvelled as I was from the starters through to desserts. I ordered their most traditional pork dish served with roasted apple. The...More
