The food was very good, but our server gave us a bit of attitude. Left us waiting for long periods and didn’t make us feel welcome. We might go back for the food, and hope for better service.

Four of us from two generations had a very pleasant experience. The ambiance and comfort level we all found to be very good. Our food was well prepared and presented and all of us enjoyed our choices. The service was excellent! We all look forward to another visit.

We have already recommended Porta Nova to several friends. The appetizers were flavourful and presented in an aesthetically pleasing manner. The four mains were all done to perfection, presented well, and extremely tasty. Desserts and coffee topped off another extremely enjoyable meal at Porta Nova.

We go often as the food is excellent, the service is impeccable and the menu is priced fairly.
Coming from a restaurant background, I am more critical than most so when we (my family) find a restaurant such as this, we continually go back.
The menu is varied enough to satisfy all pallets, the staff is very attentive (we drink a lot of water) and if you should have room for dessert (rather hard to do), the chocolate mousse is beyond reproach.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone without concern.

Quite a long wait
Quite a long wait

Specifically asked for French fries instead of mashed potatoes but mashed potatoes arrived. Had to ask to change it. The mistake wasn’t really acknowledged.

We ended up in Porta Nova a bit by chance, but will definitely aim to go back. The great food, affordable wine list and friendly service really made for a good night. The only downside were the tv screens, might be better to turn them off at night.
