My fiancee booked a table for us at Portabella for my birthday on a Thursday night and it was very nice. We were running late as we both finished work later than planned. Despite that, the staff at portabella were very friendly, relaxed and welcoming. We also noticed that the place was buzzing around 9 PM on a Thursday night! We were debating whether to go for tapas or two main courses. The waitress helped us out with our selections and we couldn't be happier. We ordered the barramundi- one of the best barra dishes I've ever had and the eye fillet- also cooked to perfection. We also ordered the bruschetta for entree- very nice and enough for two to share, we thought they might bake their own bread. Turned out we were very hungry as we both finished our meals which were fairly generous. You will definitely not leave hungry! We also tried the mango ice cream dessert and I had an espresso with some biscotti. The mango ice realm disappeared very quickly lol, and was delicious. The espresso was very smooth and strong with no bitterness and the biscotti is an absolute must with the coffee- match made in heaven. I always ask for some skinny milk on the side with my espresso and long black just in case the machine is not serviced properly and the coffee is too bitter. Well, my little milk jug stayed untouched :):):). For drinks I ordered a cocktail with gin and a cucumber before dinner and loved it!!!!!!!!
We will be back for tapas, another lovely cocktail and more coffee with biscotti!
