Booked in advance and had done it all by email and mentioned it was our anniversary and we had a secluded table with rose petals and sequins on the table. Had a really fab meal and it was a lovely touch with a chocolate decorated plate with 'happy anniversary' written on it! Staff were great and would love to go back again. It was quite expensive but was worth it for the fabulous standard of food.

Whilst visiting Bowness in February, my Fiance and I were looking for somewhere for lunch. we had passed various restaurants and perused menus and nothing appealed. We were so hungry as we passed Porto that we decided to eat there without looking at the menu. It is a small intimate restaurant and we thought we had made a big mistake when we looked at the small 3 course lunch menu and were struggling to make a choice. We eventually made our choices and were not disappointed. The food was absolutely amazing, we didnt want any of our 3 courses to end. We will definitely be returning for our anniversary in August...if not before!!

Ate here for a special birthday meal with our friends...Plenty of small rooms with a few tables in each to make the occasion more intimate..quiet enough to talk and enjoy the lovely food...While we like to review places on their service, cleanliness and staff rather than a more personal view of the menu we can say that the food was nice without being fantastic but then again, we are not as fond of jus and foam as others...On the whole its a nice place to spend an evening with friends..

We visited this restaurant for my husband's birthday whilst we were staying in Bowness for a few days at the start of March. It was an excellent choice as the food was amazing!
I am normally put off having chicken as a slightly boring option but the chicken here was the best I have ever had, the flavours were fantastic. My husband had the steak which was also good and then declared the dessert as the best he had ever tasted.
We thought the pricing was good for the quality of the food & would have eaten here again if time had allowed.
Service was also excellent.
Highly recommended!
