I dined here as I was staying nearby and the menu and setting appealed to me. Service was friendly and hospitable. I chose a thin sandwich of ham and cheese that was delicious and tasty--just what I wanted. The patron could not have been nicer.

Good light, nice waiters, high quality products. Still, you need a good budget to go inside. Strongly recommend.

Me and my wife like to visit Caffe Portomaso for a nice cappuccino and a light snack every now and than. This modern and elegant coffee shop and restaurant is situated in Portomaso complex area next to the Hilton Hotel and considered Malta's posh area. The cappuccino is always very good and the snacks are also of high quality! Prices... More

We have been here twice and each time had been great. The staff are fantastic and very accommodating. My 8 year wanted pasta with just tomatoes and that was fine. Really delicious toasties with fab fresh fruit smoothies. The TV was even turned over so the kids could watch the olympics.

Great food, good value for money, friendly staff. The pizzas are delicious. The only thing is the wine selection was very limited.

Looking forward to coming back next... More

Description
Caffe` Portomaso is the oldest outlet of the Marina Restaurants fleet and has been operating successfully since 2003. It is situated below the Portomaso Business Tower (adjacent to the Hilton Hotel) and is a great place for shoppers, sightseers and the business community for a quick drink or a bite to eat. Caffe` Portomaso, like all the other outlets, has both inside and outside seating. The outside terrace is set up with outdoor wicker furniture where canopies are opened in order to shelter guests from the strong rays of the sun in the summer months and the rain in the winter months. Caffe` Portomaso has got an inside seating capacity of approximately eighty covers and an outside seating capacity of forty covers. The inside is designed to give a warm and 'homey' feeling, where many choose to make the coffee shop their spot to have a cup of coffee and read the newspaper in the morning.
