“Amazing!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Came out for lunch today - great location right on the waterfront with a table on the deck that looked out over the ocean!! Had the spangled emporer fish special, calamari and then the raspberry creme brûlée for desert. Service was excellent and so was the coffee. Absolutely fantastic and will definitely be back for lunch again. Thanks Portobello!!!!

“Dinner”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Super food, service a bit iffy and an arrogant boss spoiling the atmosphere by berating staff in hearing of customers. A real shame because the food really is wonderful

“SERVICE AT ITS BEST!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I booked a table for a large group of my family and friends..where do I begin??? The manager and staff made the night very personalised, as they treated us as though we were their family or good friends. I can easily say we were a demanding group, as we were continually asking for a fork or new glass, however the staff were always more then helpful and friendly. The food was superb, yum yum yum! Along with this they were great portions, no one was hungry afterwards, which is sometimes hard to come across at a nice restaurant. The drinks were well priced and the cocktails were amazing (I am fussy) + the restaurant had a beautiful wine selection to choose from. Our group was the last to leave and the staff were the ones telling us to relax and stay put. Thanks for a great night Portobellos, I will be spreading the word and will definitely be dining with you again!

“Never fails to satisfy”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have been regularly travelling to Palm Cove over the past few years, and have always enjoyed dining here. Service has always been excellent, and the staff always friendly and happy to chat. Food is wonderful with generous serving sizes ( way too much for me!), and the deserts to die for. Was happy when they also decided to serve breakfasts there a little while ago. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

“Good food”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The food at Portobello was nice. The calamari was cooked very well and my husbands salad was so tasty.
It was relaxing to sit out on the deck and look over the beach and people watch while drinking wine.
