“Great during summer times - Good value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

I live a couple of steps away from Fonteintje and I've been a returning customer these last couple of (summery) months!
Nice seating area out in the sun, simple food at good prices.

The menu actually offers a lot of variation.
You can go from a quick snack (kebab, the great shrimp croquette sandwich,...) to a healthy dinner.
My favorites are the vegetarian couscous, mixed fish grill and king prawns with garlic.

The service is not always as friendly as it could be, but hey, can't have everything :)

“Bad!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

the only decent thing this place has is the location. We tried it on several occasions. Most of the fish taste like they came out of the freezer, the bread is stale, the meat not that good. We really tried it a few times since they're really close to our house, but we've given up. There are much better pita-houses very nearby.

“No-one can beat this price-quality ratio!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

't Fonteintje is not a place to go if you're looking for high end cuisine.
It is nevertheless awesome, and here are a couple of reasons why:
*all the staff are real hospitality pros: they know exactly what should take priority and they know what very hard working is. The eatery's owner is often working activitely in the kitchen or serving himself.
*the place is immensely popular as a snack bar but also as a place to get typical Moroccan foods such as Harira,Tagine, Kefta, Pastilla, etc. This means their goods are never older than 24 hours, everything is superfresh!
*it seems to be open at almost all times, so even if you come back from an evening on the town, you can go midnightsnacking there!
*no-one can beat the prices, this place offers great stuff (grilled lamb, scampis, steaks, chicken skewers,....) at great prices.
*in summer there's a huge and awesome terrace, very enjoyable!

“Morrocon food for a good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

Cheap Morrocon food for a low price. You don't have to go here for a cosy interior or a fancy experience, but for the food. Especially the sea food is very good.
