Eating at the Front Porch is a phenomenal experience. The food is divine, all fresh and lovingly prepared. This was not only the best restaurant we went to in Eleuthera (twice) but it can also rival a gourmet spot anywhere. Frances is a spectacular chef:...the shrimp and stone crab were delicious, but so was the salad (picked from their garden) and dessert. Just as important and special is the atmosphere Gina has created: it is a uniquely lovely experience. We can't thank them enough for our fabulous meals and our time there.More

Francis was an amazing chef and host. All our dishes were cooked to perfection (and to our requested spice levels). What a wonderful island evening.

My wife & I had a lovely dinner here. We both got the stone crab claws and were they delicious. The drinks were tasty & the service was great. A must go when on Eleuthera!

Excellent Hog snapper! Francis was exceptionally accommodating and prepared an excellent meal. It is a little pricey like everything on Eleuthera. Highly recommend.

By far the best food we ate the entire time we were on the island of Eleuthera. Worth the drive from the South end of the island. Food was amazing. View was amazing.

Best Dinner in Eleuthera by far. You feel at home with friends. Beautiful views and even better food. A must. The lobster is specially recommended. And I know it sounds silly, but the lemonade was to die for. Also, we had a coconut dessert that...was amazingMore

If you only have one night to spend on quality food...spend it here! Francis is an amazing cook, extremely experienced and knowledgeable, and super friendly! He gave us an outstanding dinner and we really enjoyed our conversation with him. My husband and I both chose...the Stone Crab Claws, started with a salad and wine. My husband had never had Stone Crab but thinks it rivals King Crab in Alaska. The meat was so tender and the butter mixture was perfect for dipping. If you pass up an opportunity to dine at the Front Porch with Francis, you have missed a most awesome 5 star meal! Thank you, Suzan and Robert Knight...South CarolinaMore

They are open when the need to be, We went off season and when we called they said sure come down, It was like having dinner with friends, very comfortable. Best to call ahead in off season.
