“Fair food but horrible staff”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

The food here was okay, but the staff are disgraceful! Who I thought was just an inconsiderate fellow patron, turned out the be the restaurant manager having a VERY loud mobile conversation at another table. The wait staff ignored me in favour of having a catty discussion about customers from that morning. Then, while looking through resumes for a vacant position there, the manager went into agressive, RACIST rants about all the applicants! It was shocking!
There were also no details in the resaurant or on menu about the supposed organic products/produce. I would not be suprised if this place is 'organic' in title only.
Needless to say I will definately not be returning!

“The best restaurant on Portobello road by a clear mile!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

The Portobello Organic has now become my favourite little local restaurant and can only give it a well deserved great review!

The food is simply excellent and with the friendliest staff you'll ever find to top it all off.

My friends and I go there every Sunday for what must be the best Sunday roast in town (and a sublime bloody mary to wash it down with) and the best part is that everything is organic and feels like a good homemade meal.

The restaurant itself is small but super cute with some great black and white photos of the area 100 years ago.

“Great food, good atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

I had a lunch there few days ago. Nothing to say. Nice and polite waiters, cosy interior, very nice food and good location. Me and my friend had a lovely pizza. Very crispy and delicious dough with fresh topping. One of the best pizza i had. I will definetely come back there.

“No words to describe this place - amazing!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We stopped here for a simple lunch, tried the bruschetta, the pizza bread basket and as dessert we chose the pizza with nutella and banana. Everything just tasted heavenly! The pizzas were soooooo delicious and crunchy! Service was top notch, the blonde girl who looked like the manager was making sure everyone was satisfied and happy! Stoked to have found this place!!

“Delicious”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Stopped here for a quick lunch whilst we were in the area. The food was really delicious - we had a basket of bread, warm goats cheese and a salad to share between 2 people. Good service too.
