My wife and I visited this restaurant on 14th of December for dessert & wine. My wife secretly let on it was my birthday and handed the waiter some candles to place on my tiramisu I had ordered. A few minutes later all the lights went out in the restaurant and I was surprised with the most gorgeous chocolate torte... More

Despite the poor reviews, we really like this place. We stayed here on one of our first nights in Morocco, so we had not learned that we would probably be eating a lifetime's worth of tagine within the next 2 weeks, so we ordered tagine. We had excellent service, the pace of the meal was slow, but that was what... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our week in Marrakech. On the first occasion we had a late afternoon meal when the food was variable; my wife really enjoyed a lamb tagine but my very hot lasagne was obviously one they had 'prepared earlier'. Yesterday we returned for lunch at this restaurant. My vegetarian pizza was excellent as was my... More

Seriously.. don't bother.. The food was bland, waitress was nice but pretty 'vacant'.. Staff seem pre-occupied with god knows what. The atmosphere was liked being in dungeon... Really wished we didn't go but we spent so long looking for another restaurant we booked called I Limone (which we obviously didn't find which was also really frustrating) that we had to... More

Clean, modern restaurant just off the square with reasonably priced Moroccan and Italian dishes which are excellent. Only downside is a large TV screen showing football.

From the outside this place looked clean and presentable so we thought we would give it try, wish we had not. My wife wanted a simple pizza with added ham. The ham was not of good quality and was just plonked on top, obvious as the pizza was cut but the ham was not. I tried a "Couscous Royale", there... More

We ate here on our last night in Marrkech -- we just did not want another tangine (great as they are). The service was very good and the pizzas were excellent. My wife ordered a chicken dish, but got beef instead, and that turned out excellent. This has a great location, good food and very good service. Try it when... More

The restaurant was situated very close to our hotel and looked quite nice and inviting & prices for food were not the best but O.K. I decided to go for a mint tea as any form of alcohol was ridiculously over priced. The food was tasty and good price for a pizza. The worst thing that put me and my... More

A nice change from tanginess and b'stilla. Their pizza was excellent. We went for lunch and some of our group went back for dinner as well.

We love Portofino, the staff are always welcoming and friendly, the food is well priced and tasty, and I've noticed that they have now started to serve wine. Great pizzas, we also like the lasagne, and I'm sure we will visit many more times.
