Relied on trip adviser to recommend this restaurant as we are unfamiliar with the area. The wife ordered arancini and I started with the fish plate. Both we're polished off with gusto - the fish plate was really fresh and delicate but well judged sauces.


Having read a couple of reviews that cited the scallops and smoked haddock as a cause of illness, I still couldn't resist - the seafood was delightful and then mopped up the Cullen skink with a spoon.

Hard to talk the missus into parting with any of her generous proportion of lamb, so it must have been as good as it looked ( even medium well done which raised no snobby eyebrows from the waiting staff.

Interesting cheese board to finish off a lovely evening and excellent meal.
Recommend it - but make a reservation. Lots of people turned away this Saturday evening.

We went to the Porto for an anniversary celebration. We had a special table reserved for us which had been decorated. The food and wine were excellent and to top it off we were presented with a special anniversary chocolate plate to finish.

Found this restaurant on TA food and staff were excellent (Constructive observation: staff need to relax a little but were still very good). Would recommend to anybody visiting Bowness.

We loved Porto and ate there two consecutive nights. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the restaurant has a smart but relaxed feel. The menu was small but imaginative and we had difficulty choosing hence our return visit! . When the food arrived it was beautifully presented good and tasted very good. This is certainly fine dining and at a very reasonable price. There was also a good menu for children ,(we have two girls 13 and 10) and our girls were happy to make a return visit too.
