“Delicious Brunch”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I met a couple of friends for brunch at the Porto Bello Restaurant. It's a little late in the snowbird season so there was plenty of room for the three of us with no wait. We sat at a nice little table by the marina and had a wake up cocktail. I had a Bloody mary which, if you like horseradish, would be right up your alley. I do so when I say the drink before me, I was ready to go. It wasn't the best I've had and it certainly wasn't the worst - just a little thin.

On to the brunch buffet. The highlight was the made to order omelets. Mine, with ham, onions, peppers and tomatoes was excellent and a pretty good size. I also had home fries, an egg dish and some of the piles of bacon. There were also tons of muffins, chicken and grave and waffles.

I was more than happy - it's definitely worth the trip. The total bill per person was $ 26 which included the drink and tip.

“Easter Brunch”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Yesterday went to Porto Bella for brunch. There was one bartender covering inside and outside plus she was helping to set tables. Very under staffed, the serving stations where constantly running out of food. Eggs benedict was cold both times I tried one. The service is bad because there is not enough help. There was a young man behind the bar who could not serve drinks because of his age and a women that was cleaning glasses and would not wait on anyone.
The service was poor, the quality of the food was average to poor. Will never go there to dine again unless management gets its act together.

“Great Seafood Chowder”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Finally made it to Porto Bello's for lunch. Wanted to go in our little boat, but ended up driving. Had soup and sandwich special. Girlfriend chose homemade split pea soup, and I chose the seafood chowder. Chowder was tomato based and spicy with lots of shrimp. My girlfriend loved the split pea and I tasted it and it was delicious. All in all a pleasant experience with a good waiter. The meal was reasonably priced.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Having been to this restaurant over several changes in name and approach, was a little hesitant and went with modest expectations. Happy to say that the food was reliably good on my visits in mid-March. Everything from pizza to salads and sandwiches were well prepared. Location is out of the way, and in a gated resort community, but may be just the ticket for visitors looking to get a glimpse at the laid back marina lifestyle.
