“Worth every penny!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

A lovely relaxed restaurant in an amazing setting overlooking the harbour. We had 3 wonderful courses and a bottle of wine . Cost was about 200 euros ... Not as much as we were expecting. There is no pressure to have 3 courses, so don't be worried about going and spending a lot less and enjoying the view. Not a bit stuffy everyone very friendly. A must if u are in Portofino. Just get the complimentary shuttle bus which stops outside the pharmacy. Takes you up the hill to the hotel.

“Romantic Portofino harbor view”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

If there is one thing ordinary people like ourselves could do to get a taste of the Portofino charm, it will be to do dinner here. While prices are much higher than eateries in the village down below, the view and the service are worth it. We ordered fresh branzino and sea bream, both really fresh and tasty. Local vermentino, a white wine, wasn't as good as those one could order from tuscany or sardegna. Other than that, this is the place to have a romantic night out.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 via mobile

I write in English because most if the customers are coming from outside Italy.
Portofino is one of the most beatiful place in the world.
This restaurant has been suggested by a friends .
The athmosfere is brilliant, but the quality of food is really really poor.
Price is extremely high, bottle of wine costs double than all others place across Region.
To be avoid with all the efforts
Stay far from it.

“Wonderful restaurant and views”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Going for dinner at Splendido hotel in Portofino was something I’ve wanted to do for several months, so as soon as I booked a trip to Liguria, I booked a table at the restaurant.

I LOVED the whole experience – it is the most romantic setting I’ve ever seen. From the terrace, you can see magnificent panorama of Portofino cove with its yachts.

Food is exceptional, beautifully presented and the service is faultless.

It is very expensive, but the experience is very memorable and I do hope to return next year.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

An unforgettable experience in Portofino.

My husband and I were celebrating our second wedding anniversary and are so happy we picked the Splendido.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they were more than happy to help with anything you asked. All were friendly and accommodating and made you feel right at home!

We started with drinks in the hotel bar. The bellinis were the best I've ever had! So fresh. And we always had a constant flow of nibbles and treats from the chef.

The dinner was delicious with an incredible view. The best food I ate in Portofino. Amazing flavours.

Our bill came to around €190 for two courses, a bottle of prosecco and lots of added extras from the chef.

To get to the hotel, wait for the free shuttle bus (a silver mercedes) outside the pharmacy in the second square.
