A nice little restaurant on the water. Have their local fresh ginger beer, it is so delicious! The fish and chicken were prepared with wonderful seasonings.

We had a very nice lunch at the Porthole. There were five of us and we all enjoyed our meals. My roti was first class. The local beer was cold and good and the wi-fi worked. I recommend this restaurant.

I ate so many delicious roti at this restaurant. . . I've been trying to recreate their fish roti at home, so far without success. It's not a fancy restaurant, a very solid lunch location, and it's nice to sit outside and chat with folks walking past at the start of the bustling main street past the harbor. If you... More

From outside the restaurant you have a nice view to Port Elizabeth's harbour and all the sail boats. The local food (roti, grilled fish etc.) is delicious and the prizes fair. A calm place to have lunch for example...

Cute little restaurant next to the mini market. Very personal friendly service, ate lunch there twice, asked the waitress recommendations, food and beer were fantastic. We sat outside with nice view over the water. Very budget friendly.

Basic decor and a kind of cafe feel to it but during the evening it has a good atmosphere. The food was delicious and we were a very large party so the food took a while but there were staff waiting to bring us drinks when we asked. Very reasonable prices.

Stumbled upon this amazing restaurant in Bequia. The food was so authentic and tasty it was absolutely unforgettable as far as flavour goes. The waitress was very friendly and also very informative about the island as well. I had the opportunity of speaking with both of the owners in the back and we had an amazing chat about Caribbean life... More

We ate several lunches at the Porthole on our trip to Bequia last February. We had the lobster roti and the lobster special and both were excellent. If I lived in Bequia I would probably eat here once per week. Love the atmosphere! Wonderful setting next to the ocean with plenty of activity and great service. Give this place a... More

We wish we could say more positive things about eating here, but.... Just getting waited lon took a long time; then actually being served took close to forever. We ordered the special: grilled chicken breast and fries. The fries were nice and crispy just as we asked them to be. The chicken was tough and dried out. Ate it anyway... More

The Porthole is a combined restaurant, bar, and mini-grocery. I stopped in several times for quick provisions. Then I met some locals who dragged me there to try their special rotis. They truly are the best on the island--and the proportions are generous.
