“Great food - wonderful owners - nice view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We drove from Governor's Harbor for a Sunday afternoon 1:30 pm lunch. We called ahead because there were 7 of us. The owners are actually the chef's, and the servers. The food was absolutely delicious. The Back Porch had a nice view of the water. It is small and charming. The best part is the Back Porch has a nice warm feeling, we ate with some of the local residents and the food was fantastic. I would say it rivals Tippy's. It was worth the drive.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We were treated like guests in the owner's house! The food was delicious--most of us had the salad of the day, which included watermelon and pineapple--and, he customized it to everyone's needs!

Beautiful views and great atmosphere!

“The chef/owner made us feel like family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Frances is a great chef. He stopped being a cook years ago. The fish was so fresh, since he caught it just that day! The guava mango crepes were fantastic, and too fancy to be called just dessert pancakes! Great little store inside the serving area as well, and sells the hard to find "neer soap". It's made from a local plant and is good for the skin. The only thing Frances needs is a pair of reading glasses since he had to borrow my wife's! We felt he was a friend who invited us to his home and then cooked dinner for us.

“Amazing! Worth the drive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

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! And everything was seasoned just perfectly. A must do in Eleuthera!
