We went for lunch a few years ago and had a great meal on the porch overlooking the harbor. Call ahead to set it up.

During our week long visit to Eleuthera we ate at the Front Porch twice. Francis and Gina, the owners, are gracious and kind. The obvious pride that they take in their establishment is evident in every detail. The lunch specials of grouper fish cakes and conch wontons were so good we came back later in the week for dinner. We... More

We started outside on the deck. Sunset was gorgeous. The bugs were vicious. We moved inside and they weren't much better but we lathered in spray and continued with dinner. Very nice people. Dinner was great. Had the stone crab, lobster and shrimp dishes.

So we stayed in Eleuthera for 2 weeks last 2 was of Nov. We sampled lunch and dinner options in the Rainbow Bay region and have to say HANDS DOWN The Front Porch had the best food, portion size and service. We had a grouper dinner and also the white seafood soup (octopus, mussels and what ever was fresh). The... More

My wife and I have made sure we stop at least once each year when we go to Eleuthera. The owners Gina and Francis will make you their first priority and refuse to rush or be rushed. Be sure to ask ahead of time for a special choice of entree from the sea so it can be caught fresh. You... More

Our meal was wonderful. The owners were very nice and eager to accommodate. The atmosphere was perfect inside and out even in the rain.

We loved The Front Porch! Food was delicious and Francis and Gina were so friendly. We enjoyed visiting with them during and after dinner. We just returned from a 10 day stay there in a beach front cottage, in the low season, and came across them - so glad we did! We like to eat out somewhere different every night,... More

Great Food & Great Service and kept the place open for us after we arrived late for our reservations. They are one of the few restaurants open in the first week of October which is another plus.

We just got back from a quick five night stay during the slow season. While we have been here many times, we had no idea how many places would be closed. Thankfully we found The Front Porch. The dishes were not only creative, but delicious as well. Gina and Francis were delightful hosts, and our dinners stretched out long enough... More

Every time we go to Eleuthera we make it a point to eat at the Front Porch. Wonderful owners & wonderful food. What more can I say? Simply the best food on the island and TFP would be a favorite restaurant anywhere in the world. Call ahead and make a reservation.
