The food at Porto is out of this world. For starter I had aranchini, risotto and mozarella balls deep fried with a pear and walnut salad. Main course was an exquisite pumpkin ravioli with sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Everything was perfect and the staff were extremely helpful. The restaurant is lovely and cosy and very romantic. It's not the... More

My husband and I were treated to this meal by my work colleagues as a wedding present, as we were spending a couple of days in the lakes as part of our honeymoon. It was a Wednesday night so quite quiet but didn't lack atmosphere. Both had pate starter and duck breast main which were delicious, I'm not into dessert... More

Called in Saturday lunch time without prior booking. Busy but managed to get a table upstairs. Food was of the highest standards and the service was the same. The excellent ta reviews are fully justified. Great place

Food was enjoyable but not fine dining. Service was average, polite but minimal. Would expect better for the price

Took advantage of the Tuesday/Thursday night offer - set menu around £22. Food was excellent- amazing value. Was only there for a few days but if I was local I'd take advantage of this every week! Lovely restaurant- classy - great food.

My husband and our friend went here for dinner the night before our friends wedding at a nearby hotel. We chose here as it was highly rated on TripAdvisor and catered for vegetarians. We were not disappointed! Food was excellent and really unique. Expensive, but worth it for a treat. A great balance of quality and style without pretentiousness. Recommended.

Can't rate this place enough, it's a must if you are visiting the area. Went last night to celebrate my step dads birthday - on arrival they had decorated the table for him and brought him his own dessert out later on. Service was outstanding and the food was some of the best I've ever had. Very reasonably priced for... More

I have to say the meals were very tasty, BUT the size of the portions were a joke! For a main course of duck: 15mm x 70mm x two pieces plus a bit of potato and small veg for £21 was ridiculous. My partners soup was good, but again a small portio The salmon was about 70mm x 35mm x... More
