We were on the island all week with a gem of a restaurant 3 miles away. The view from the porch overlooks the dock which large car ferries arrive from Nassau. It was interesting watching the workings of moving freight and vehicles. We were served mushroom cram soup for soup of the day. The flavor was spectacular. Pieces of sweet... More

Four of us enjoyed a delicious dinner at The Front Porch. Our hostess and server Gina was just lovely and we really enjoyed chatting with her. We had the Caesar Salad, the grouper special, Junkanoo shrimp and 2 Mahi . All were expertly prepared and deliciously seasoned. I especially enjoyed the fried rice served with my shrimp, so yummy!

We stopped in to this place for lunch one day after another restaurant we wanted to try was closed. We were the only ones in the place but it was the low season so we were quite glad they were open. The food was excellent and the owner (Francis I believe) was a very friendly and charming guy and really... More

We enjoyed eating at the Front Porch on the last night of our trip to Eleuthera. The passion fruit rum punch was one of the best drinks I have ever had! Lots of fresh squeezed juice and plenty of rum. We had the "Fire Guava" wings as an appetizer and were delicious. For dinner we had the fresh catch Grouper... More

My husband and I ventured here for dinner on our last night in Eleuthera. The menu is small, so we tried a good majority of what was listed - none of it disappointed! The mushroom soup was divine and the mahi was some of the best I have ever had. You could tell that the mahi was very fresh. The... More

We were supposed to have reservations, but our resort messed that up (The Cove, I'm looking at you). When we showed up, they were surprised to see us. Because they are a tiny operation, they didn't have a lot of options -- had they known we were coming, I assume there would have been more. As it was, though, the... More

This was by far our favorite meal while in Eleuthera. The food was delicious and lovingly prepared. Seasoned just right with perfect balance. We had the best garden grown arugula salad and an amazing mushroom soup with crab claw meat. For entrees, we had the grouper and lobster. Divine! Gina and Francis were both so lovely and welcoming. It was... More

The food was delicious but expensive. We went on New Year's Eve and there was a special menu which was probably more expensive than usual. This place only had 3 tables. It is TINY. There is no view - the back overlooks a parking lot and the ferry dock. But the decor is cute. The staff were all extremely nice... More

We had dinner at the Front Porch for my husband's birthday and we had a blast! Everything is great: food, decor, service, music...! Francis and his team made all possible for us to have a birthday cake with candles and they were so friendly and welcoming :) Good people and good food make you happy! The menu is a little... More
