We went the The Front Porch for a second time because we enjoyed it so much a few weeks back. What a wonderful spot. The owners run this tight little ship with grace. Francis and Gina have not only created a serene and cozy space, but also the food is terrific! The meals are simply prepared with an authentic Bahamian palate but executed with imagination, using all fresh, local ingredients. The presentation is clean and attractive. The chef owner, Francis, really has a talent and a flair not only in the kitchen but he also checks his tables and make sure that not only his customers are satisfied with the meal, but are happy with the complete experience. His wife Gina is not only lovely but on the ball, attentive, warm and welcoming as well as grateful for your bussines.This restaurant should not be missed if you are in the area. We will be going back...maybe even tomorrow!

Went to Eleuthera with two other "foodie" couples last week and had such an outstanding meal on the Front Porch on our first visit (caught-that-day stone crabs and grouper, cajun chicken, fresh salad with blueberries and pineapple, and perfectly roasted red potatoes) that we returned for our last meal on the island. Frances, the amazing chef, works alone in magic kitchen where he turns out five-star meals (on "Island Time" so don't be impatient..) and then visits the table to make sure everything is as you ordered. Our steaks, fish fingers, lobster, and coconut rice were so delicious that we all overate. Like, a lot. Don't miss this heavenly foodie adventure "on the porch."

Best service and fresh catch each meal. Francis went out of his way to accommodate us even our little dog on the porch . The view is breathtaking at sunset and the stone crabs were the best ever. We will be back every time we come.

Found this restaurant from Trip Advisor. Called for reservations and they were able to sit 4 at 7:00 - perfect.
There are 3, maybe 4 tables. One of the other patrons told us the owner/cook catches fish during the day and serves it up in the evening. Depending how the catch is will depend on how many seatings they will have.
Prices were comparable to those at other places on the island.
We ordered the Junkanoo shrimp, fish special and chicken. All 3 dishes were fantastic! The flavors were amazing.
Had we found this restaurant at the beginning of our time on the island, we would have definitely planned a 2nd meal there!

Suggest calling ahead for reservations. All the tables are outside; would recommend some pre-applied bug spray to keep the biters away.
