Portobellos is always a local favourite of ours! It’s typically consistent and the view is amazing! Service was slow on Friday night but otherwise the atmosphere was great as well as the food. We had a stuffed apricot pork with mashed potatoes. So good!!

The fish was overcooked, the vegetables as well. There is little imagination in the kitchen from what I can tell. That's unfortunate because it is a pleasant place particularly for lunch.

Always a choice for special occasions Portobello's offers a range of fantastic meals for both the fine diner and the person who appreciates good tasting foods. Both the view and ambiance are great for a family gathering or a romantic dinner.
