“Good break from Moroccan food, won't break bank.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Nice break from Moroccan food with a good variety of menu items, several suitable for vegetarians. Reasonable for the price and good service.

“Ticked the box”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

In Marrakech it is easy to find cheap eating out with no alcohol and top end restaurants with expensive wine.
It is really quite difficult to find ordinary middle of the road restaurants at moderate prices which serve alcohol.
In this respect the Portofino was excellent. We had a very nice pizza with beers ( wine was available) at a good price in nice surroundings and so near the Square.
If you have tired of Morrocan food and just want a nice pizza or pasta ( or a Morrocan dish) at a nice price and in acceptable surroundings then it is worth a visit here. Very close to the Square and you can have beer or wine with your meal and still have change from £20 for 2.

“Fantastic and thank you for the lift to the airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

You will probably know straight away who is writing this review :)
Spent 7 days in Marrakech and to be fair 6 of them we ended up having a meal at Portofino. For very simple reasons:
- great service - nothing much of a problem, they remembered us after the first visit, smiley, ready to go an extra mile to make sure you leave happy.
-great food (still longing for the avocado and crab salad that one of the reviewers mentioned, superb!). I was more adventurous to compare with my other half who fell in love with their carbonara!), everything I tried was tasty and fresh, couldn't ask for anything more.
- great views, very clean place, was nice to run away from the insanity of the bustling streets.
- very reasonable prices to compare with other "touristic" places.

Best of greetings and thank you again for lovely experience.
