The place is owned by an awesome lady named Carmen from New York in the states, and she is so nice that she made me feel like this place was 'home' while I was here!

I recently returned from a stay at the Portofino Hotel. I was pleasantly surprised by the greatly improved restaurant. The variety and superiority of their menu was outdone by the meal.
