Porto & Fi
Family-run neighbourhood bistro and coffee spot championing local suppliers with contemporary Scottish dishes.
There’s a definite buzz inside this family-run neighbourhood café/bistro. A well thought-out menu offers upscale lunches in a casual setting during the week, with dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. Big windows overlook the Forth all the way to Fife and the seafront location is reflected in dishes like soft queenie scallops served in shells filled with pools of caper and pink peppercorn flavoured juices. The signature Cullen skink risotto is like a creamy, savoury rice pudding and warms the cockles. There are lighter options too, like black pudding Scotch eggs with deliciously gooey yolks and a crispy exterior. Attention is given to food allergies with extensive gluten-free choices and the ability to substitute ingredients in all dishes. This combined with a dedicated kid’s menu covered in puzzles and mazes makes a friendly spot that feels welcoming for all.
