Great way to end the day. Beautiful location and good service. We shared bottle of wine at the Harbour of Portofino. Didn't have food but the menu did look good. They often also have live music. Must stop late night.

Whether you are alone, convention, visiting with family or as a couple The Thirsty Fish is always fun. Great atmosphere and friendly service. Looking forward to heading back to Loews Portofino in a couple of months. Ask Shawn about $10 Tuesdays.

A good, relaxing atmosphere and a great way to unwind after a long day at the parks! A lot of variety of drinks.

I only went here twice over 5 days - disappointed overall. One time - all draft beer was off - staff disinterested. Second time was little better - beer was available, clearly staff felt they were doing me a big deal to serve me.

After a day at Universal, we stopped for a drink and sandwich. I believe it was the pesto and pancetta sandwich which was very good. The night we were there, there was also a very good acoustic guitar player/singer performing who was very good too.

You can sit outside and watch the world go by with a nice cold beer or glass of wine, the view over the bay helps make the experience and makes it so relaxing after a long day in the parks
