Francis was on hand to assist us with a very special lunch. Everything about this restaurant is like being at home. Our friend Scott loved Max the dog. Everything was impeccable well done and delicious. Crawfish salad, grouper cakes and shrimp cocktail. So good! Every attention to detail with the vegetables and spices. So well prepared. You must stop at... More

Went to eat lunch and it was absolutely fantastic. The Jerk shrimp was wonderful. We also had the wings as an appetizer and they tasted great. We had great service and they were very friendly. I would recommend this highly.

Some of the best food we've eaten in the Caribbean and the place was clean and tastefully decorated. Will definitely recommend and go back.

A group of 4 dined there on vacation to celebrate a birthday. The owners were as accommodating and kind as you could find anywhere. The restaurant was clean and tastefully decorated. Our meals were all seafood and everyone commented that it was the best fish they ever had. As it was a slower time of year, the owners took time... More

By far some of the best food we've eaten in the Caribbean let alone Eleuthera. The setting is gorgeous, the drinks are strong and delicious, and the food is fresh, excellently prepared and simply delicious!

Must-visit place in Eleuthera. This was our favorite meal by far and a great way to spend an evening. The owners hand-make everything and truly do welcome you to their front porch. The food was delicious, prepared just for us and the drinks were great. In addition to sitting on the porch looking over the bay, there is a gift... More

You should try this place. Really good, healthy food. Very small so call ahead. And wear bug repellant as they are on the water and very buggy. Nicest staff around. Love it.

We have passed this restaurant many times over our 5 visits to Eleuthera, this time called and made reservations for 4 adults and 2 children on 4/1/16 after reading Tripadvisor reviews. All of us, kids included, voted top 3 of restaurants we have had meals at over the years. We will most certainly be back next year. The stone crab... More

We have been 8 times to the Front Porch and this restaurant is definitively our favorite for fine dining when in Eleuthera. Francis and Gina are great chefs and wonderful hosts. The seafood, lobster, crab, fish are always fresh of the day, perfectly cooked with a creative touch, and the sides are great as well. The place is intimate, inviting... More

Walked up from Hatchett Bay to pay our mooring fee and thought we were walking into someone's home until I saw the tables set up on the porch looking out over the bay. This is probably the best food I've had since coming to the Bahamas. Perfectly done, very fresh, excellently seasoned food and the atmosphere couldn't have been nicer.... More
