Came in from the rain to have dinner here one night. Place was pretty dark, little hard to read the menu, but the food was pretty good. Everyone in the party was quite satisfied with their meals, no complaints from a pretty tough group.

Dinner at Fifth Element on the main road from Middletown to Newport.
Pan seared salmon served with rice linguini and green chinese beans. Well cooked and savoured though with too much garlic. My boyfriend had meat with mashed potatoes and aubergine. With one draft Newport beer and one chocolate cake we spent 63$

My husband and I went to Fifth Element in Newport's off peak season, so we weren't expecting it to be too busy, but we were wrong. We were able to get seated and have a few drinks, but our server took so long I ended up getting our drinks at the bar myself. We also ordered chicken liver from the appetizer menu... Never again. Food wasn't that great, and service was blah, but I am willing to give it one more try.

Small menu. Great service. My husband and I were looking for a local's kind of place and found a good and reasonable place here. Our steak special was cooked perfectly and paired nicely with our Sangiovese wine choice. Certainly worth the walk through the neighborhoods of beautifully restored homes to get there.

There didn't seem to be much on the menu but we were pleasantly surprised. We really liked everything we ordered, the risotto, scallops, pizza, appetizers and desserts. The desserts panna cotta and toffee pudding were very tasty. Our only problem was with the air conditioning. It was fairly cool autumn evening but periodically we would get blasted by the air conditioning. My daughter and I kept our jackets on.
