"Delightful" best describes our evening at Portland. Lovely food, excellent wine list and a comfy dining room. What really sets them apart is their fantastic staff, we felt so well taken care of - nothing is too much trouble. Thank you to the whole team, especially Ilaria, for a fantastic evening. We will be back soon.
Fabulous! Everything innovative and mouth watering. Langoustine are a must. Staff lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Love it
Went here for lunch on our 30th wedding anniversary and it certainly lived up to our expectations!
The taster menu, with wine flight was magical. The service impeccable- if you have not visited and you are a “foodie” and or like interesting wines this is a must visit restaurant.
Thanks all for making our lunch special!
Visited Portland on a Saturday for a special meal with my partner. Food experience was excellent - the pre-starter courses were understated but enjoyable; Raviolo with truffle starter was good; standouts were the Pollock main and Strawberries dessert. Looking forward to visiting again soon.
I went here last Sat. The set lunch was great. The sea bass starter was tasty with an interesting sauce (creamy with a citrus flavor), and I liked the venison main. Desserts were great too.
The staff were all kind and attentive!
Some reviews talked about small portions, but I found them ok.
All in all, highly recommend!
Relaxed and informal. Excellent food, especially the seabass starter and turbot main. Excellent service and a good selection of reasonably priced wine
Relaxed environment with some of the best food I’ve eaten. Staff are knowledgeable, willing to help and never intrusive. Highly recommend.
We went to Portland on Saturday for a lovely lunch and we weren’t disappointed at all. They were extremely friendly and helped my partner who is in a wheelchair with the access without any issue. We felt welcome straightway! Our actual host who helped us with the wheelchair access and was also waiting our table was simply superb. He was knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious overall and the staffs were great. I had the best sourdough bread in this restaurant and would definitely be coming back soon.
Thanks to the chef and the staff who works so hard in the kitchen. Well done to you guys! Every penny worth it!
It was good just not special
Lovely tasting menu and great service. Good value. Would definitely recommend.
My friends and I had a fabulous lunch at Portland. The service was great, not stuffy and relaxed atmosphere with excellent food and wine. Thoroughly recommend.
Great culinary experience. Helpful staff and good wine.
Exceptional. Great great service, lovely atmosphere, excellent food and wine pairings. Only small criticism would be that the portion sizes for the principal fish and beef courses were a little on the small side, even by normal tasting menu standards.
I came here with my boyfriend for dinner on Tuesday. We went for the tasting menu. It was absolutely delicious, each meal was displayed beautifully and each flavour jumped off the plate. The staff were friendly, attentive and added value to a lovely evening.
Love love this place- comfortable laid back feel with top notch food- friendly staff that make you feel welcome and relaxed- an amazing tasting menu with nice wine list-
Wonderful food and attentive service
10 out of 10! Can’t fault it, outstanding food with such lovely staff. Highly recommended you visit this restaurant regularly. I’ll be back monthly!
We stopped at Portland before going to the theatre and the staff was incredible at getting us in and out within an hour while we enjoyed what’s normally a two hour meal. The food was spectacular and delicious, staff was very friendly, and COVID safety measures were taken seriously which made me feel safe. We couldn’t have asked for a better dinner out.
Great restaurant, superb value especially for this part of town. Fantastic service and a great tasting menu.
Some confusing flavours and wine parings
Had to ask to slow down as we felt as though we were on a conveyor belt
Excellent staff even though there was no explanation as to why courgettes had to come all the way from Cornwall
No need for such food miles
Absolutely incredible restaurant. Its reputation precedes it for a reason.
Had the tasting menu and the food was beautiful, seasonal and fresh. The service was great yet more casual which made it more enjoyable
Taster menu was very varied. Every course was an interesting my x if textures and tastes. Wine pairing worked well too
friendly staff, very attentive and great for birthdays! great food obviously as well
I like everything about this restaurant except the noise level. Seems unavoidable these days with the fashion for hard floors and no tablecloths. Food is always delicious, innovative without being pretentious and looks good too. Service is calm, pleasant and efficient. I like watching the guys works their socks off in the kitchen.
Had a great meal at Portland last night. Lovely 'on point' menu, interesting menu and wine options - would highly recommend.
Everything is so good and fresh. However the sauce for the scallop is a bit too strong.
Lovely food enthusiastically served with style and passion. A really excellent restaurant.
Outstanding experience- Staff were very professional yet personable and approachable. I liked the friendly feeling of the place. The food was impeccable and cooked with love abs passion. I loved the birthday card from all staff. A nice touch. Thank you!
Brilliant service and delicious food! Extremely pleased with everything.
The food was inventive and so tasty! The staff was incredibly attentive and we really appreciated how the kitchen was able to help work around some dietary restrictions for a nonetheless delicious meal.
Great service - attentive and personable. Ideal environment: relaxed, bright, easy to chat over food. Value and quality excellent. Would definitely go again
Wonderful experience and food - great service, attentive staff and they were very accommodating.
Would definitely recommend
Absolutely stunning ! Best meal I’ve had in ages and I’ve been to a few top end restaurants
The taste , textures, flavours and appearance all amazing , stunned to get so much in meal
Lovely staff , relaxed and casual atmosphere and good value
Also great reasonably priced wine list which is not always the case
We will be back
Very much enjoyed the food tasting menu experience, and the staff was very friendly. I like the minimalist decor but would make some changes. Overall was a good dining experience
Portland was outstanding! We’ve been fortunate enough to visit a number of
Michelin starred restaurants recently (in lieu of a couple of foreign holidays thanks to covid restrictions...)
I cannot recommend Portland highly enough - a great balance of high end and relaxed at the same time. If you want an ‘unstuffy’ fine dining experience you can’t go wrong with Portland!
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding!
Everything as per usual was excellent, food, wine, atmosphere, and most of all the staff.
We had an enjoyable lunch at Portland restaurant. There was a friendly welcome and the room was busy with a nice atmosphere. The menu is concise which makes choosing easier and they were happy to accommodate our dietary preferences. We started with scallops which provided texture to a light gazpacho style dish (at least that is my description) followed by mains of beef and fish both very well cooked and finished off with a white chocolate desert. Service was leisurely and relaxed - we did not feel rushed - and left very happy after a great meal. The damage £200 for 2 including service. This did include aperitifs and a glass of sparking with desert plus a decent bottle of Nebbiolo wine. You can eat here for a lot less. The food is the star of the show and deserving of its 1 star from Michelin. If you do not want the formalities that come with some starred restaurants then the Portland is a good place to visit for a special occasion or catching up with friends.
Excellent set lunch on Saturday. Not big portions but just right for lunch. Wines were not cheap but the ones we had were very good.
