Serving the communities of Newhaven and Trinity, this light and airy café-cum-bistro by the sea provides a welcome destination for meeting friends in an area otherwise limited for dining out. Whether you’re just after a good coffee and something delicious from the tempting display of cakes and traybakes, or looking for a more substantial meal, the flexible menu offers plenty of possibilities for light lunch or the full three courses. Tempting dishes include pan-fried salmon with puy lentils, brown shrimps, sun-blushed tomatoes and coriander, or duck breast with roasted beetroot, kale, sweet potato mash and red wine reduction. The success of their modern Scottish bistro menu has seen Porto & Fi extend its evening opening hours until 10pm at weekends, a move sure to be welcomed by its loyal followers.
