Huge Portions

We stopped for a quick late lunch, I had a prawn salad and the others had a toasted sandwich. They were all huge! I ended up leaving half of mine and the others took theirs away with them! The food was lovely! Service was a little slow.

Just had the greatest experience with the food at the portomaso. I live here, love to go out very often, meaning i have visited several places in malta, tried different food menus. However, must admit, my compassion is pizza. From my experience i can tell, that it is very hard to find a well done pizza here in malta, that... More

We had heard good things about the breakfast on offer at Caffe Portomaso, and we thought we would go try it out for ourselves. We were certainly not disappointed. We were promptly given menu's, even thought the waiter was a bit slow to return to take out order. The whole breakfast was truly excellent, and the coffee and oranje juice... More

Had lunch here. Mine was a Greek salad which I loved - plenty of feat, olives and anchovies for about 9 euros. Sat outside, great atmosphere, good service and reasonably priced.

Came here on route to cinema and had a light meal of Tuna salad and a toasted cheese and ham sandwich plus drinks of fresh orange and cappuccino Excellent as always and for sure the cappuccino here is probably the best I have had on the island Do not pass this place without going in Highly recommend

They have really nice sandwiches and the potato & leek soup is heaven in a bowl! In the summer the food can take a while to get to the table but it's usually worth the wait. The service depends on who's on shift, we've had very nice waiters and we also experienced bad service. The outside seating is great, good... More

We used the café for breakfast on most mornings to avoid the hotel prices, and when we were coming back from a long day sight seeing, they do a take-a-way service which is so useful. The staff were really friendly and the quality of food and portion size great value for money. If you're stopping at the Hilton then please... More
