Called in here after a disaster with a close neighbouring one and so glad we went here.

Immediately greeted and taken to a table, and from then on it was great service and food.

Brilliant!

We booked Porto late as we did not fancy a drive up a snowy mountain given the recent easter weather.

We arrived and were offered the choice of the more casual downstairs or the slightly more formal (but in no way fussy) upstairs. We chose upstairs.

The menu was concise and diverse, offering our party of 4 a wide selection and covering all possible tastes.

Service was prompt and attentive with sufficient time between courses so as not to feel rushed nor to feel that you were waiting for a long period.

Food was well presented and well prepared.

An ideal place to eat for dinner.

Faultless service and cuisine. We booked the restaurant early in advance of a 2 night stay. Would definitely recommend.

Really lovely restaurant with Home cooked and tasty food, the menu is varied and caters to vegetarian and allergies if required. The service was very good and a äff very friendly.

Had to phone ahead and advise would be late as couldn't find anywhere to park in Bowness (it was Easter Sunday). Apparently parking is often a nightmare in summer/ at weekends/ bank holidays, so beware ! Porto were very understanding (maybe it's an occupational hazard), and we were welcomed despite being half an hour late.

We chose Porto because of the reviews - its high rating is completely justified and also because they allow dogs in to the restaurant.

The food was very good - roast beef especially so, and it came with a varied selection of interesting vegetables (cauliflower cheese, red cabbage, swede and carrot mash and more). Sticky toffe dessert was excellent.

The restaurant doesn't look much from the outside and the decor is fairly basic, but the chef and the service were both faultless, and It wasn't expensive.
