We visited portabellas during our stay in cairns in march 2017. We had a lovely table outside with an amazing view of the sand and sea.

After having a disappointing dinner elsewhere, we decided to give Portobello a stopin for coffee and dessert. WIN! Will be back for dinner, service was more than accommodating and friendly, prices reasonable, and desserts to talk about!
