Casa de Fonte has a lovely fire during the winter months, superb food cooked to perfection. The Lamb Cutlets are to die for. During the summer a covered court yard at the back is a truely unique setting. Excellent chef and friendly service.

My husband and I both had steak here at hogmany, the best steak in a long time. Good value for money, service was excellent and a good friendly atmosphere. It was very busy as lots of people had booked altough we hadn't we did get a table ok.

If you like grilled food, this place is excellent, the food is cooked in an open oven on coals in the open air restaurant. The main restaurant area is usually open air with a 200 year old grape vine and a lemon tree in a court yard. Is area is covered in inclement weather. We would highly recommend the lamb chops and the golden bream.

I have already written a review of this restaurant which was not too flattering to say the least, but we decided to give it another try this year, and I would not have believed it could have been worse! We have been going here for years, the fish was always cooked perfectly. The chef was elderly so wether he has either passed on or retired I couldn't say. The chef who has taken over obviously has no knowledge of cooking whatsoever! It was busy when we arrived which gave us more encouragement to try it one more time. We both ordered the golden sea bream, we also ordered converts which didn't arrive...again....this happened last year too. When the fish arrived it was so overdone and burnt you couldn't even pick out any fish! The waiter was aware of our disappointment and invited us to free drinks in the bar after. I think he recognised us from previous years after a while!! We had one drink and left......will not return!!!

Casa Da Fonte is a great restaurant well worth a visit. It is easy to find being just by the Tunnel to the Beach off the Main Square in Old Town and it provides a unique dining experience. You sit in an open courtyard around a lemon tree and vines and you can watch the Chef cook your food on an open fire. You are always greeted with a warm welcome and the service is efficient and friendly. The Lamb Chops and Steaks are best as they take on a mouth watering barbecue aroma and taste. The grilled Squid is also superb. Casa Da Fonte is not the cheapest in Town but it is one of the best and it is a must for a great night out with good food, well cooked and served.
