I had eaten at Portabello Market a few years ago when I used to live in Gulf Breeze, and was very excited to try it again after moving back this past year. The building is so unique you will want to sit there for hours. There is a huge skylight in the ceiling, which provides natural light and makes... read more

I love to eat at the Portabello Market. It is in an old building with high ceilings and sky lights. The atmosphere is friendly and the food is delicious. It's mostly soups, salads and sandwiches for lunch, but all of the food is very, very good.

I go there often for lunch. The food is always good as well as the service. Parking is always a pain, but it is worth it when you eat the food.

First visit here earlier this year . Wonderful mix of antiques jewellery clothes and food stalls. Not far from tube station well signposted but you need to get there early as it gets very busy

For the last three years we have visited Pensacola and we have eaten at Portabello each year. Each year it just gets better and better. This year it was the best ever. My wife and I had the Tomato and Basil Soup which is superb. It is served only on Thursdays (ask the owner Ryan why). My wife had the... More

Lunch time only and only certain days but worth the planning it takes. The food is mostly lunch fare but fresh and fixed to perfection. Fun place for a ladies lunch.

We had lunch here, and it was pretty good...nothing special though. The service was very good and I have no complaints. We loved the atrium setting.

We love Portobello's for well-prepared non-instant food in an intimate setting. We love the central courtyard feeling of the old jail building which is now the Pensacola Cultural Center. We love this setting for the Ballet Pensacola productions, and we love being able to chat quietly with one another while we wait for our food and know our conversations are... More
