Great service, great food, lovely bistro and if you are up for just a drink and a game of pool then this is the place for you, I recommend the Lamb and Steak, their Chicken Schnitzel. Just a hint, if you can try to book, if not you may get lucky to be able to walk in (like us)

Been coming to Portarlington for the last 10 years and been going to the pub regularly. Owners have changed hands many times and the restaurant has slowly deteriorated. But this is the last time we will go as the meal was such low standard. It is a pity as the "old pub" deserves much better .

Messy place customer service is just a joke. Its ok if its a saturday but they don;t meant to make people wait for so long. After the wait we eventually walked out, so not much to say.

Ron & I had Sunday night dinner at Grand Hotel Portalington this week. The staff were very friendly & knowledgeable about the hotel's history.

On our third night in Portarlington we were looking to have a good, quick meal that we hadn't prepared ourselves. Budget is always in the back of the mind, and so when we ventured to the Grand Hotel in Portarlington, and saw that it was Parma Tuesday with a range of chicken Parmas on offer for $15, it was a...

When we arrived it was not busy and there were dirty plates left on empty tables. The young guy who sat us was very dismissive and disinterested and barely said a word. We waited a good 10 minutes to even get served and the same waiter simply came stood at our table, no eye contact or even looked up from... More

Had a great meal, with wonderful service. Open fire if cold, outdoor undercover if warm, the choice is yours. Lovely atmosphere.
