Yummy and Friendly

My family had dinner here in July 2015 whilst staying in Palm Cove and had a great night. The place has a really nice vibe, and we had a lovely waitress who took care of us all night. She was happy to organise an alternative sauce for one of the seafood dishes to suit my mum's picky tastes, and... read more

We had dinner at the lovely Portobello in Palm Cove a couple of times in the week we were there - just because it was so nice! The restaurant overlooks the beach and the whole front is opened up for the balmy evening breeze - lovely atmosphere. The waitstaff are very helpful and the food is of very high quality.... More

Beautiful ambience, good size menu, amazing food and excellent service, great value for money. Reviewing as a couple, but would also recommend for a family.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The pasta and steak were great the calamari outstanding but we weren't that happy with the pizza a bit bland and not a lot of topping. Wine selection was fantastic.

Wonderful pasta, including a spaghetti with seafood and tremendous ravioli. Great service, too, and nice selection of good Australian wines at reasonable prices.

The pizza here is great! We had takeaway pizza twice over our holiday in Palm Cove. Great value and very tasty. The staff were very friendly and overly accommodating.

Food was enjoyable! The only problem was that it took half an hour for our drinks to arrive, once we had finished our meal we then tried to get the bill which we then waited 20 + minutes again. Finally just got up went over and paid, where the waitress/waiter was nine the wiser! Overall Food 8/10 Service 2/10

Our French waitress was just lovely. The pizza was the most amazing pizza I have ever had in my LIFE (and I have been to Italy!). Unfortunately the wait on the food was a little long, therefore it is rated 4/5 but I would totally return again for more pizza!
