We were looking for a nice place near our hotel for an early dinner. Very nice restaurant with great atmosphere, very friendly staff and very good food. Good thing we were early, the place was full by 6:30 and they were turning people away.

Kinda dated and run of the mill menu, nothing really grabbed us that was interesting. Maybe some updating of menu options and decor would be an idea!! Decent service.

Portabella is my "go to" restaurant in the lovely town of Picton. This trip, I ordered the salad special (cranberries, goat cheese, chicken, almonds...) and it was fantastic. My friend had the pecan chicken (always a good choice) and we shared a bottle of Sandbanks Baco Noir. Total bill $80 plus tip. Yes, a little pricey, but the service is good, food fantastic and the artwork was especially good this time. I will definitely return again and again to Portabella.

We expected and hoped for no more than competent food and service in the small town of Picton, but received far, far more. The food was expertly prepared and plated. The service was warm and just friendly enough. We had never seen pickerel, a locally caught mild fish, on a menu before, but after helpful discussion with our server, decided to both try it. I had the pan-sauted version while husband tried the fish tacos. In both cases the fish was perfectly cooked to that hard to get "sweet spot" of neither drying it out or leaving it too raw. The saucing and the sides/accompaniments were creative and delicious. As mentioned in other reviews, the desserts are wonderful too and topped with super ice cream. We usually share one dessert but ended up getting both the butter tart and the blueberry tart...both were sheer bliss. A restaurant not to be missed.

We always spend an evening at Portabella's when we visit Prince Edward County. The atmosphere is perfect and the service excellent. I always order the pickerel fish and butter tart desert, they are excellent. Make a reservation and enjoy.
