If you are traveling to Salt Cay this season, this is your last chance to enjoy Porter's Island Thyme. They have sold, and the new owners are not operating the restaurant. If you are on Salt Cay, go to Porter's for a fantastic dinner. They make great food, and they will entertain you with stories about the island.

Just a fun place to enjoy a meal. Wonderful ambience. We ended up eating here a few times during our weeks stay in the island. Haidee and Porter are awesome hosts. Always up for a good time with their guests. The food was fantastic, too. Kudos to the chefs - Lolli and Apple.

Delightful atmosphere. Charming company, both at the bar & behind it ... even in the morning when you stop in for coffee or to pre-order a dinner selection (and be sure you do). Must tries? I adored the conch "martini", and the tomato salad. And I confess to having one-too-many of Porter's muddle-your-own-mint Mojitios one night, and consequently felt a... More

During our time on the island we were able to experience breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Porter's Island Thyme. What a treat that was!
