We were a party of 4 with 3 of us celebrating our birthdays, so it was a good time to splash for a fabulous meal. We were not disappointed. I had a rib eye steak cooked to perfection, and so tender and delicious. Everything we had was absolutely delicious!
This is not a place to take children to. Go there to have a nice, quiet and delicious meal.

Was surprised to find such a great restaurant here. Superb meals offered with great service. Make sure you book in advance as heard/saw several turned away as full (in March). Recommend highly

Food was amazingly presented and was delicious. Service was spot on. The food is reasonably priced for the quality of it. The only thing we could fault is maybe the wine is slightly pricey however we would definately return and recommend to anyone as we loved it.

We chose Porto for our anniversary meal after reading reviews on tripadvisor. My husband had book a table and told them it was a celebration, so when we arrived they had scattered the table with rose petals, a lovely touch. The decor inside is stunning - cosy and quirky and intimate.
We both chose soup for starter, which arrived stunningly presented on a bread board, a hollowed out roll with the soup inside and more soup in a jug. The soup lacked seasoning slightly.
We both chose chicken for main course - this is hands down the best meal I have ever eaten. Pan fried chicken, ancini (balls of risotto rice and mozarella coated in breadcrumbs and deep fried), smooth creamy mash and a dish of cream cheese. Absolutely delicious, perfectly cooked and I didn't want to ever stop eating it!
We both had desert - plum crumble for me and apple mille-feuille for hubby - again, totally delicious. For another special touch our deserts came out with candles and sparklers to celebrate! Then when the bill came they brought us complimentary chocolates presented on a plate with congratulations written on in chocolate.
From start to finish this was a truly special dining experience. The service was 1st class, and we would definitely choose to eat here again if we were in the area. Thank you Porto!

Just returned from our evening meal here at Porto. Absolutely wonderful food, better than some of the very expensive restaurants we have eaten in. Thoroughly recommend the porto piggy platter, totally delicious. Excellent wine list which was very good value. Lovely decoration and atmosphere with excellent, friendly staff. Highly recommended.
