The fillet steak was cooked to perfection - melt in the mouth tender and juicy with a light crust of sea salt. The portion of frites is enough for two, although we found there was a little too much salt on ours for our liking. There seemed to be a light dusting of salt on our salad too but other... More

The food is top class with excellent service to top it all off, wines are reasonably priced with some excellent Rioja's. This is... More

On the harbour in delightful Puerto Calero, La Portena is cosy first floor restaurant well worth a visit - particularly if you're looking for a steak and some really nice accompanying red wine. It's a quiet and welcoming location and Flor is a most charming and engaging hostess. We particularly like the leisurely pace - there's time to enjoy some... More

Couldn't fault anything, Hubby was absolutely delighted, he tucked into his bread and oils with gusto. Exceptional little pasties for starters, amazing. The... More

We love this place. The food is unreal. The best steak on the island. I recommend the mixed meat platter to share followed by a steak (obviously) and a nice bottle of wine. We had dinner on two occasions and can not fault it. A big thank you to Flor for her great service she is a magician when it... More
