We were lucky enough to enjoy our last meal on the island at Front Porch. The food was amazing and the owners so friendly.mi had the crab back and my husband ordered the red snapper. Our 3 year old was delighted at the childrens special of chicken wings! Everything was fresh, local and tasted great. The crab claws were HUGE!... More

I could eat their crab claws every night! Cutest couple owns it! I would call a day ahead with your party size because they serve all fresh caught island fish.

Francis treats you like you are dining in his house. He catches most of his fresh seafood himself. He takes delight in you dining with him and enjoying the food. Go before sunset to take in the pretty views - boats, harbor.

We went there for dinner tonight instead of our hotel restaurant. The welcome was warm and friendly. The whole family is there. We had a nice high table with a romantic view on the small -at that time quiet - harbour. After a short and very friendly chat with the owners, we got our drinks and ordered our food. They... More

Gina and Francis treated us like family and gave us a great table and the freshest fish we'd had all week.

We had a lousy experience here. After making a reservation for two at 8 pm we showed up early at 7:30. Even though there were clearly open tables we were told to wait on a bench. When we asked politely if we could be seated earlier we were told "We don't do that here." No friendly or welcoming at all.... More

The food is prepared with love from their kitchen. We shared the crab dip which was excellent. The crab stuffed Lobster, served with Lobster Rice... More

We just enjoyed our second vacation on Eleuthera, and are already planning our return next year. The Front Porch is our favourite place to eat on the island. The food is local, sustainable, Bahamian goodness! The owners catch the fish and stone crab themselves and then prepare it and serve it to customers on the same day that they catch... More
