As our hotel restaurant was closed they recommended this restaurant also making a reservation for us. We were pleased they had as the restaurant soon filled up with Spanish which is always a good sign for a local restaurant. The menu has a wonderful choice of fish and in the display cabinet. The food is very tasty and well presented.... More

Upmarket restaurant but don't let this put you off. Extensive menu takes you from partridge, pork loin or lamb at the bottom end price wise (€15) to lobster @ €80 and fine wines at €3 per glass to €300 per bottle. Superb tastes and excellent service in the centre. Try it!!!

There are not too many first-class restaurants in the old town of Puerto de Santa Maria--most of them are out in the affluent suburb of Vista Hermosa (about which more in another review). But there are two on Bajamar, the principal avenue along the docks. This one, Los Portales, takes the cake for being one of the worst restaurants in... More

My husband and I ate at Los Portales during our recent visit to southern Spain. We shared three generous and tasty courses - clams in wine sauce, lamb chops, and cheese. Service was gracious and accommodating and patient with our Spanish. When we first arrived around 9:15 or so the restaurant was quiet - only a couple of tables occupied... More

This is a rather stately restaurant, stylishly decorated with old photographs and paintings that capture something of the town's identity as a port and one of the centres of the sherry trade. The food very much reflected its position on the Bay of Cadiz with seafood of various kinds to the fore. Other than a salad starter we concentrated on... More

It is a very nice restaurant. Service, ambience, food - everything is excellent. Drinks, shared appetizer and 2 main courses cost about 55 euros. Both main courses (partridge with pine nuts and the rack of lamb) were delicious. At the begging of the meal we were served some complimentary snacks followed by very tasty and also complimentary small mojitos at... More
