“Best restaurant north of the city”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

I've been to Portabella 5 times in the last 2 years and I've never been disappointed. The menu changes often and the food is always great. Portion sizes are large, meals are always presented well and the food is fresh. Service is good especially when it is often poor or non-existent at many other restaurants. Staff are friendly. Portabella has a good wine, beer and cocktail list. As has been mentioned in other reviews, Portabella is always busy even on week nights so it's worth making a reservation. If you're looking for a restaurant that serves great food in a friendly environment and you don't want to go all the way to the city then Portabella is worth a try.

“A Great Restaurant”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Since moving to Albany Creek in January we have been to Portabella 5 times. It is always popular & full This is because their food and service is always great. Our last visit was no different.
I`m just so glad we decided to live in Albany Creek, only 5 minutes from one of the best restaurants we have ever visited.

“A Northside Gem!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Great food, awesome service and great location for us northsiders. You don't even have to get the usual entree and main but sometimes we like just to have a few wines and some Tapas. They have a great selection and give you options to get a good mix.

“Best restaurant this side of Brisbane!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is definitely the best restaurant in this area. We have visited three times within the last month and cannot fault the place. The restaurant has an excellent menu, very reasonably priced, good service with attentive and friendly staff.

“Unrivaled modern dining experience”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

It seems you've jumped into a space-time portal when going to this place, the last thing you'd expect from a suburban restaurant in Brisbane.

However no matter how high you've set your expectations, this place is guaranteed to meet them and more.

Beautiful place, welcoming atmosphere and a really nice ambience.

Service is amazing, food is divine and desert is to die for.

I've lived in a nearby suburb for years and wish this was brought to my attention much sooner.

A great place for family dining, couples and business.
