For being ranked so highly on this site, it did not come close to living up to expectations, unfortunately.

I' ve been there for the first time with my wife and our four sons, we choosed a typical seafood "antipasto", fish was really fresh, but I am still dreaming the ravioli pesce with a particular sauce. My daughter really enjoyed a grilled mediteranean fish. We... More

We chose this restaurant for our second/final night in Portofino based on the Tripadvisor reviews and were disappointed. Yes it has a great view but the service was poor to almost being a joke (after appetizers they brought our salads and we had no utensils so we asked for some and the girl brought a fork and spoon so we...

Frankly, little underwhelming given TripAdvisor's rating here. Tourist trap place which I fell into (damn it, again!), which appears to have benefited from a momentum of TripAdvisor reviews building up. Whilst only spending one night in Portofino, it is hard to believe this is the best grub on offer. Food was a mix, and ordered on advice from the friendly... More

After skibbling up to the Brown Castle we stopped here to dinner about 5:30. The waitstaff was friendly and the service was good.

I... More

A must try if you don't want to risk quality; food is delicious and service is friendly and good. Prices are value for money, definetelly not expensive. We sit outside; no scenery but fun to watch people around.
