There are many restaurants in Bowness but if you try just one, it has to be Porto. The menu promises much and it really delivers. The smoked haddock and scallops with Cullen Skink was amongst the best meals I have ever eaten. And the dark chocolate brownie, with popcorn, salted caramel and Madagascan vanilla ice-cream was just heavenly. The service was excellent. The only problem I have with this restaurant is that it is 250 miles from home ;-( If it were in my home town I would surely eat here regularly.
