Had dinner here last night, very busy, but enjoyable busy. Ordered a Margarita cocktail first, was a very nice drink, but a Margarita it was not. Pizza and wine were good. Not fine dining, but wasn't looking for that and Portobello doesn't claim to be. Overall would go back the next time.

This is the best restaurant in Palm Cove. The service is fantastic and the food is fresh and tasty. Best of all it doesn't cost a fortune. Everything is reasonably priced. Just make sure you book or they may not have room for you. It gets very busy. Not surprisingly. This is a great family restaurant too. Enjoy this truly... More

This was a super busy restaurant with great staff and location. The food being served around us looked amazing. However we ordered the pizza which was a real letdown. The base was more like focaccia and the topping overcooked. Was disappointing but the whole night was still great. The entree of barramundi spring rolls was great as was the salad.... More

Stopped in here and had the soft shell crab on greens and gnocchi that were homemade. Both dishes were very good and served quickly. I would eat here again.

Wife and I had been a few times before and happy with the service and food. This time decided to get a few pizzas take away, toppings ok and tasty but the pizza base was no better than a dominos thick crust, not a fan of their base at all, maybe they should take a trip back to Italy to... More
