Ciopinno was very complex in flavor and outstanding. My son's tuna was seared to perfection and my wife's halibut was excellent. I also loved to "locals" feel to the place. Go here, skip the more heavily advertised Doc's Marina.

Second time eating at this small, cozy eatery that feels like you're in the front parlour of someone's house. In a good way. I had been dreaming about their shrimp and crab stuffed mushroom caps in a lemony hollandaise since 2 years prior when I first tasted it and it didn't disappoint. Outstanding. My boyfriend ordered the puttanesca and I... More

My favorite thing on the Washington coast is seafood. I'd arrived in Port Townsend and wanted to explore the town, but I was hungry and it was 3:00 pm. I was lucky to step into the first place I saw, The Fountain Cafe—after perusing the menu, of course. I was the only customer at that hour on a Friday. The... More

We had 2 different pasta dishes--both excellent & unusually flavored. Excellent service. Prices were reasonable for the quality--would have been much higher back in Seattle area. Small, so could get crowded and noisy, but not a problem for us while we were there.

Had dinner here on a whim and holy cow, it's great. I had salmon cakes that were made earlier in the day and they were divine. My friend had pasta, also delicious. Everything cooked and seasoned just right. I'll eat here every time I go to Port Townsend from now on.

Marvelous.. What a great way to end a day of touring the town and Peninsula.. They had a wonderful Halibut special that was spicy and scrumptious.. my wife loved the Moroccan Chicken... The Staff and Chef were right there in view in this hidden gem..

A great place for lunch. We always leave here satisfied and not hungry till dinner. The staff treat you like old friends, but are not artificially effusive. We love the apple gorgonzola salad. If you must watch sodium, ask for less gorgonzola (they're almost too generous IMO). We have never tried desserts because the portions are huge. They love kids.... More
