Never had as bad an experience as this....hense why i am writing this review!!! Special Menu is obviously a way of drawing you in....the food is WAY over priced....the service staff just don't care...and you get charged for everything!! Food was tastey...but not worth the price...never again!!

Went to Portofinos Easter Sunday, dont know what has happeneed to this restaurant! Have been going for about 5 years & have always found it to be very good. The food this time was tasteless & the pizzas seemed to be a frozen variety with the toppings added later! Such a shame, needless to say wont be going back again!

Recommended to us by locals as well as couple staying at same hotel so we gave it a go. Nothing spectacular and quite small inside but good food and good value as we had a 4 course meal for 20 euro each. Would go again.

Went to this restaurant with my husband and Friday - big sign up offering 3 course meal for €14 so we went in. Were offered al a carte menu and no mention of the €14 for 3 course deal. Asked the waiter, who arrived back with a different menu. The €14 for 3 course menu actually offered only one main course for 14 euros - the idea being that you just paid whatever the price was for the main course and got the starter and the dessert for free. Apart from one item, everything on the menu was in excess of 14 euros and rising up over the twenty. Irregardless, we ordered two items which were very tasty, starters were very nice too, pate was delicious and my husband had lovely vegetable soup. I had a glass of house wine. When the bill came, i realised that I had been charged 6.75 for a glass of average house wine - nothing special. Normally, the house wine works out a bit cheaper than other wines being offered. When I queried the price, the waitress advised that they had to subsidise the cheap food being offered, by elevating the price of the wine. Being an avid wine drinker and loving a glass of wine with my meal, the price being charged here would put me off returning, despite the good experience with the food.
