New branch


Porto & Fi open a branch in the centre of town.

On Sunday 17th April 2011, a second branch of the popular Newhaven café-bistro Porto & Fi will open in the centre of town. 

Situated at 9 North Bank Street, this second branch of Newhaven’s secret is bound to be a popular choice for residents and tourists alike. 

We have previously reviewed the busy original branch but can’t wait to try out the new premises.  The menu is already on the window and looks extremely tempting. 

Breakfast is served until 12pm and all day on Sundays. The Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon or bacon at £6.95 is firmly on our hit list, but then so is the Stornoway black pudding and beef tomato roll at £3.75. 

For lighter bites or main choices, the wild boar patties with chilli jam and salad (£6.95) caught our eye, but then so does the stuffed pork belly option at £10.95.  Smaller portions of classic dishes are available for little ones and an excellent choices of sweet treats and desserts. 


Opening hours: Monday – Saturday 10am – 10pm and Sunday 10am – 6pm. 

Porto & Fi on the Mound, 9 North Bank Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2LP 0131 225 9494.

    After being to the other porto and fi, this was a disappointment! With the being Scottish produce i would expect to see staff who know a lot about Edinburgh, Scotland and where the food came from!

    The Staff had little knowledge of the menu and seem very rushed while being a bit unsure of what was going on.

    The food was good but the service let it down as i had a special order which the server didn’t write down.

    This was a let down after it having a beautiful view and a prime spot, poor tourists of Edinburgh who visit! As being a few times now i wouldn’t go back, i would just talk the 5 minute walk to the mile or down to the Scottish Cafe at the Galleries.
