Our last dinner on Malta with PERFECT view on the bay and the sunset. Service was spot on. Octopus well cooked and spaghetti with smoked salmon - very tasty. Tuna was good but not medium rare how I asked for. Really nice place.

Slow service due to crowded evening but pizza was excellent and the view was nice. Wine list was also pretty good.

Highly recommend Portabello for a special meal. We had pork with berries and honey, and the chicken with mango and ginger rounded off by a lovely bottle of white wine. So tasty. Views to die for. We will be back.

We stayed in the Apartments which have amazing balcony views over St Paul's Bay. The Restaurant owner was very friendly and we enjoyed a good meal or two there as well. A lovely holiday.

Whenever we have a birthday or other event that requires a fancy meal, we always go here, to the point where they anticipate our order before we place it! The service is normally fantastic and the food is to die for. Definitely try the Stroganoff...More
