“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Lovely little place. Food was stunning. We had starters of cheese soufflé/parfait, mains of lamb/pork belly and desserts of sticky toffee pudding/sorbet. Everything was absolutely beautiful. Left stuffed to the brim but very happy! It's not cheap but well worth the money

“One of the best ever.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Had the privilege of eating here last weekend during a long weekend holiday in the Lake District, tried to get in Friday and Saturday but fully booked eventually managed to get a booking on the Monday night, eat outside on the roof top terrace in the sun, the menu is excellent and every course we had was top notch, we eat out a holiday a lot and this is in the top two in our travels. Very well done, thanks.

“Loved the menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

I really enjoyed the combination of flavours in the Arancini starter (especially the truffle and chive cream cheese) and in the Dark Chocolate Brownie Cake (thought the popcorn and salted caramel were a nice touch). The Cumbrian Rib Eye main was equally delicious.

The service was excellent from the moment we arrived; our server was very friendly and efficient, leaving us enough time to enjoy our dinner but not neglecting us either. The decor was tasteful and our booth was quiet even though we were seated a few yards away from the entrance, near three other tables.

Porto Restaurant was a treat and a nice place to kick off a holiday.

“Delicious Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Spent a couple of days in Bowness and thought we'd try this restaurant for a change. Staff made us feel very welcome and were attentive throughout our meal - but not at all intrusive.
There was plenty of choice on the menu and our meals were tasty. They were cooked and presented well. Overall - a lovely evening thanks.
