If service makes the experience, it was provided to us by an energetic, knowledgable, very pleasant hostess. The food great, top quality pizza, I recommend the seafood, fresh and great wow factor, delicious. A great view and beautiful wine, Merlot as recommended, made it a great experience. We will be back.

Third time at Portobello. It has improved each time. This time was great. The spaghetti marinara was beautiful. The fettuccini lamb was also really good. Will definitely return

We stayed in Palm Cove for a week and went to this restaurant on two occasions. We had two different pizzas and loved them both. The Greek salad is also amazing. I would stay this restaurant should be in the top 3 in Palm Cove.

Had takeway pizza. Was really disappointed with the lack of cheese on the pizza. Pizza was dry and lacked flavour. My local Pizza does way better.

Excellent selection of Italian dishes to suit everyone. Very busy every night and recommend booking a table at holiday times. Excellent friendly service. Good wine selection. Great for families and couple, and reasonable priced.

Super tasty italian food, not too hard on the pocket either. Waiters are very easy on the eye.. Fresh tasty food, friendly waiters who were keen to help us out and pack away all of our leftovers for lunch the next day. A definite hit for palm cove!

I ordered the vegan special pizza on the menu, which sounded great: Sweet potato, eggplant, almonds & napoli sauce. It came with haloumi cheese on it and no eggplant or almonds. I told the waitress and she did fix it but still no almonds. The pizza base also tasted awful, flat and awful. The other pizza based seemed good though... More

Great vibe, great welcome but left seriously gouged In the wallet by super inflated holiday prices. Nasty taste affecting objective views about what might be otherwise a nice place to dine. Seems it is all the go in Palm Cove over Easter weekend. 😬
