I work on a ship calling here for one day only, and got some time ashore to study and soak up the wi-fi. Staff were very happy to let me sit in a corner with my laptop and some folders, and left me to it....More

Best place in Portofino, the floating dock is amazing, and they have the best drinks and food. The troffie al pesto is a must have!!

I liked this place for the atmosphere. Like other reviews it is pricey but it is also Portofino so we were expecting to pay more. It says American Bar but not sure why except the servers had the best English of anyone I've encountered in...More

Lovely setting by the harbor and super friendly staff. They fixed a starter that wasn't on the menu. We had a spaghetti with mussels and a salade Nicoise. Both dishes were okay, but nothing special. With two glasses of house wine, the bill was EUR...More

We were here last week and we thought, "oh this place looks like a cute place to sit outside and have a quick lunch"-- what a mistake that was! The salad was fine (definitely not worth 18 euro), the pesto pasta was good-not great. But...More

Nice little bar with prime location. Not sure why its called an American bar. Drinks were overpriced 16 euros for a drink.... Limited food options. No cocktail menu. Probably a pass...

This is a great location, waterside with harbour views However my meal was extremely disappointing. Wine is overpriced although you expect that in this tourist resort. I ordered a Nicoise Salad which came with very ordinary salmon out of a tin complete with the fine...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Purchase price for a coke let's say is €1. Your selling price at your location is €9. Therefore your contribution margin is €8 or 800%. Knowing Portofino as a very high frequency place allows certain prices however above calculation is way above logical understanding. Maybe you can explain to me and the world? PS: same for the small beer of €10 which is even cheaper in purchasing price...?!?
