During our stay in Windermere, we found this little gem!
We had scallops to start with and steak for mains, both courses were full of flavour and just delicious!

If your visiting Windermere and stuck for somewhere to eat, I would definitely go to Porto! You won’t be disappointed! :)

We booked at Porto for our wedding anniversary, whilst on holiday in Bowness. They made us feel really special, and the food was amazing. Thank you so much Porto staff. We will be back!

Great find. great meal. great service. great value.
We stumbled out way across this small highly detailed restaurant. Menu was interesting food flavorful and not to rich. Fresh and not over complicated.

We came here with friends on a Sunday Night during our stay in this beautiful part of the world. Booked a few days before as we had heard great things about this place, and wanted somewhere we could walk to from our accomodation.

It's a small restaurant, but that is why there is a lovely buzz about the place, nice atmosphere and it is recommended you book ahead to avoid disappointment.

I ordered the Pan Fried Chicken Livers to start and they were a nice surprise. Between us all, our meals were great. We cleared our plates. Notable mentions should go to the Arancini, Cheese Souffle, Monk Fish Scampi, Sticky Toffee Pudding and Apple Crumble Cheesecake. All delicious . All devoured.

The quality, presentation and portion size is spot on and this place deserves it's AA rossettes and place in the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere. For a touristy area this place is also a hit with the locals too as we found out from talking to other diners that night.

The price was good too - approx £90 per couple inc. wine and beers.
Will definitely recommend to others coming to the area, and to anyone that is local and yet to try - do your taste buds a favour and book it now.

Dinner at the Porto tonight was excellent. The food was of a very high standard in very nicely set out restaurant. It was very busy so service was a little slow but the waitress apologised and gave us drinks on the house while we waited, but I must say it was well worth the wait as the food was excellent. Our thanks to the very professional waitress who looked after us throughout our meal. Highly recommended.
