Portobello is a lovely local eatery. Located in the Nuevo marina .It's a great setting for a great meal. Food was excellent and the service equally good. Local entertainment made the evening even better. Fish dinner was fresh and delicious. We will certainly return to Portobello. The Waite staff was excellent. Thank you Abad for great service and friendliness.

Had a wonderful dinner with very accommodating service from Beto and Ernesto and staff. Ambiance was perfect and even though we got hot and bothered by little knats on the deck they were more than accommodating to set us up inside in the air conditioned restaurant. The decor was modern and enchanting, the music was piano bar style with all... More

Spent an amazing evening with the family eating great food and wine. Truly surprised to find such an authentic Italian restaurant with excellent homemade pastas and sauces. Our service, led by Abad was exceptional. They have a great selection of wine and their food is cravable. Can't wait to come back next visit to Nuevo Vallarta!

While staying at the Grand Mayan, this was a short taxi ride up the road. The service was excellent and the food was authentic Italian. Reasonably priced and delicious.

This restaurant was an all-around excellent experience. Our server, Miguel, was attentive and pleasant all night. He was very helpful with menu choices and offerred to let us taste the wine before deciding on a bottle for the table. We really enjoyed meeting Miguel. The setting was attractive: a comfortable, modern restaurant with a view of the marina. The food... More

This is a romantic setting in Nuevo Vallarta located at the edge of the water. The service was outstanding and the cuisine was delicious with terrific presentation. My wife and I dined there our last evening in Vallarta (05/14/2015). We will definitely be back.

We were staying at Villa del Palmar Flamingos and wanted to dine elsewhere. We asked for a recommendation to a nearby restaurant and they suggested Porto Bello. Our requirement was that the restaurant had to have vegetarian gluten free options. It was so nice to know that I would be able to have gluten free pasta in Nuevo Vallarta for... More

We just had the most fantastic meal at Porto Bello Bistro and Lounge in Nuevo Vallarta. Starting with the waiter Jaime and throughout the meal, it could not be beaten. We had Tuna Carpaccio to begin our awesome experience, followed by a Bistro Salad all accompanied by fine wine. I enjoyed Sea Bass with almonds, spinach, great sauce and vegetables... More
