There's a gastropub feel about Fonseca with a bar downstairs and restaurant upstairs. It has a nice informal, friendly atmosphere and pleasant lighting. Service was excellent - the team couldn't do enough for us and were really helpful & friendly.
Personally we found the menu a bit limited but picked a couple of things from the blackboard. The starters were well presented and tasted quite good but my main course of steak & triple cooked chips was disappointing - individual items were well cooked but everything was just thrown on the plate with no thought of presentation. It was far too big and unattractive - just the sort of plate you would get in a pub.
We went to Fonseca's based on the good food guide recommendation so were expecting something special but in reality it's a fairly average bistro with above average service. We enjoyed it but won't be rushing back.
