The Front Porch is always my 1st stop (and many stops during my visit) when I am in Eleuthera because of the exceptional food, outstanding service, setting, and hospitality. Gina and Francis planned and executed a week long celebration for me in Eleuthera and it was outstanding... Fresh fish, stone crabs, lobsters, perfectly cooked and presented, accompanied by delicious Bahamian... More

I don't know where to begin. As a first time visitor to the beautiful, breathtaking Eleuthera, I was happy to find this gem. Placed right on the water, you can watch as the boats come and go. Inside the restaurant invites u in with a down home feel, with an island inspired decor to match. The warm feel of the... More

We spent 2 weeks in Eleuthera and went to the Front Porch on the recommendation of our home owner, Wow great suggestion. Francis, a stone crab fisherman prepares the meals to perfection along with delicious side dishes and dessert. The fresh catch that day was Stone Crab, Yellow Fin Tuna & Lobster. I had never tried tuna and was always... More

We've had nearly 2 weeks on Eleuthera so far and discovering The Front Porch was a definite highlight. Francis, his wife Gina and other members of the family made us feel welcome in a home from home, relaxed kind of way. We ate yellow fin tuna that had been freshly caught and I'm not a big fish fan but this... More

Just returned from Eleuthera, and I'm already having withdrawals from not only the food at The Front Porch, but also from Francis & Gina, who now feel like family!!! In my many travels in the Caribbean, I've NEVER had a dining experience that rivals the meals we ate while there. From the first visit, when I called to make a... More

Choice of local foods nicely cooked and pleasantly served. You can sit on the decking overlooking the harbour and enjoy your meal whilst watching the small boats.

The food at Front Porch is so good that we ate there 2 times in the 6 days we were in Eleuthera. It is in my opinion the best food on the Island. If I come back eating here will be my first stop. The crab clown are as big as my hand and the guava hot wings were so... More

My wife and I went to this wonderful restaurant twice on our four-day trip to Eleuthera. We would highly recommend it. While it is, like most other decent restaurants on the island, not cheap, if you're on vacation, you really can't worry about that. The owners were charming, and the food exceedingly fresh, and not overdone. We particularly enjoyed the... More

We waited 2 years to come back to Eleuthera and the Front Porch! Neither disappointed us. The Front Porch can't be beat for a delicious fresh caught meal. Hats off to Francis!

We ate here 2 times while we were in Eleuthera. We had the Stone Crab Claws both times and a Lobster once. They both were huge and wonderful. Francis and his wife were extremely friendly and the view was fantastic.
