A special place

The layout of this charming restaurant is as inviting and beautiful as the family who owns it. We were greeted warmly, literally on the front porch, which is shaded with a beautifully landscaped yard. We entered into an efficient dining area/gift shop.

Had a great Time celebrating our friends birthday ! Francis made us island drinks that were incredible! Had stone crabs with rice and veggies and a wonderful desert that Francis chose for us that was a bread pudding dish. We had Nassau Royale shots to finish off a great celebration. Awesome sunset and great times!

This is our second visit to Eleuthera in the past year. We missed The Front Porch on our first visit. After eating here on our second visit, I can tell you we made a mistake by not going sooner. The food is some of the best I've had anywhere, not just in the Bahamas. The freshly caught stone crab claws... More

Francis and Gina take you in as weary travellers, feed your stomach and nourish your soul. We have been there a number of times now, this time we brought friends with us, and they commented on how lovely it was, how unique the visit was. The weather was cool, but the conversation (Francis sat down with us and we chatted... More

Last week, while on holidays on Eleuthera, we had the most delicious meal at The Front Porch. Francis, our chef, is a master flavor blender. I had the smothered grouper - cooked to perfection with herbs and spices that make my mouth water just thinking about it. This was complimented by a rice made with curry, turmeric and veggies and...

First visit after to Front Porch after visiting the Island for 3 years. Love, love, love the food worth the drive from Windermere Island. Service top notch, great ambience and view. When they say jumbo shrimp they are jumbo. The chicken snack is not a snack but a full meal and wonderful. Best food ever!

This is our second trip to Eleuthera and I have no idea how we missed this Gem on our first trip. Our meal started out with a couple of yummy tropical drinks and was followed by the fried conch which was so tender and was served with delicious dipping sauces. My husband ordered the stuffed Grouper that was very tasty... More

We really enjoyed the personal experience alongside the amazing fresh seafood. As the recommended items are caught that day, Francis does a great job steering you in the right direction. If you are unable to get a table the first time around due to fresh catch or preparation for a busy next day, do yourself a favor and call for... More
