last went to the Fontein Belgian Beer Cafe just for drinks.
Bartender was very attractive and asked me about my day and what would I like.
He also let me know if any events were going on upstairs (eg live band etc) but told me only the cheaper drinks (happy hour) was downstairs.
I sat down, and he brought over the drinks for my friend and I.
Next couple of rounds, he just asked if we wanted the same as before and each time brought us our drinks.
Very good service, friendly and approachable staff, good music and good atmosphere. Definitely going there again.
Went here over the weekend had a great time time staff were very lovely and helpful and friendly the desserts were delicious it was quite busy awesome atmosphere would definitely come back here again and also was very kid friendly
Very delish home style food, ohh and there muscle's, De Fontein is our local and we head there quite alot!
De Fontein's quality of food is still better than some of its sister restaurants. It's not the best but I do like their metre-long sausage.
I'd go for the atmosphere and the beers.
Service - friendly and generally efficient.
A bit pricey, but food is excellent!
You want to go there when you have time, sit on the balcony and have a beer while waiting for your meal. Really nice place;
My Brother celebrated his 40th birthday here recently, Staff were very accomodating making his night a fantastic one! All that came enjoyed themselves and the boys seemed to indulge in their great selection of beers! A+++ for making our night a great one!
This is a great restaurant, my favourite is the Lamb salad, also the live band 'The Munro Brothers' give the place a really cool atmosphere. Nice setting, nice balcony for summer dining - De Fontein is well worth a look
A group of 5 of us went to De Fontein on a Saturday for lunch last week. We have been before for mussels and beer and been impressed with what we ordered. The service has always been well below par and was even worse today.
We were seated promptly in a nice position on the balcony. Our drinks orders were taken and arrived about ten minutes later. That was as good as it got on this day. My partner and I ordered the soup of the day which arrived after 30mins cold, and we asked them to heat it up. The others ordered mussels and the mushrooms. On this occasion the thai mussels were well over seasoned and not fresh, the mushrooms arrived cold and were very boring. After everyone else had finished their meals our soup had still not arrived back. (25mins to reheat soup is ridiculous!)
We cancelled our meals as everyone else had already finished their below average meals, and left feeling hungry, annoyed and hugely dissapointed! There was no apology or attempt to reconcile the situation and the service was far worse than what I would maybe expect in a fast food restaraunt.
Would not reccomend for anything else apart from expensive beer and mussels (on a good day)
