Anniversary treat

We visited Bowness for our anniversary and chose Porto for our meal on Sunday evening. The food was amazing and the service faultless. We had a wonderful evening and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Lovely food and staff very attentive. We had two courses , breads and a nice bottle of wine for just over £70. Chef happy to prepare food to specific taste. It also has a lovely terrace out the back of the restaurant where you can take coffee after dinner.
