We visited this ranch style restaurant whilst staying with family in Monte Judeu in July 2014. We went for a lunch time meal and had a drink in the bar before. The owner Carlos, was very friendly and was made to feel very welcome. The restaurant was reasonably quiet when we arrived but set up for live singing, which is apparently on Saturday nights and recommended

The bar is full of character with good amount of seating - a more traditional bar in one half, then the indoor and outside restaurant areas. Three of our party had the lamb chops and these were described as "delicious". I had the meat mixed grill, which was recommended by one of our party. This arrived on a skewer and contained a generous amount of beef, pork, chicken and sausage and bacon pieces. Extremely tasty and good value.

I recommend this place to anyone who is staying near this area of the Algarve.

We have visted Fonte da Pedra three times since 23 June and have chosen a wide variety of dishes ranging from starters as clams, soups and ham with melon and various fresh fishes, tiger prawns in piri piri and chicken piri piri as main courses. The food has always been well done; never overcooked and balanced spises. Moreover, the restaurant offers a selection of good wines to reasonable prices.

The ambience of this restaurant is second to none. The food is always very good and the waitress is fantastic. We've been several times in the last fortnight , it's always busy and we are made to feel welcome .
We cannot recommend it highly enough.
