Description: Caffe` Portomaso is the oldest outlet of the Marina Restaurants fleet and has been operating successfully since 2003. It is situated below the Portomaso Business Tower (adjacent to the Hilton Hotel) and is a great place for shoppers, sightseers and the business community for a quick drink or a bite to eat. Caffe` Portomaso, like all the other outlets, has both inside and outside seating. The outside terrace is set up with outdoor wicker furniture where canopies are opened in order to shelter guests from the strong rays of the sun in the summer months and the rain in the winter months. Caffe` Portomaso has got an inside seating capacity of approximately eighty covers and an outside seating capacity of forty covers. The inside is designed to give a warm and 'homey' feeling, where many choose to make the coffee shop their spot to have a cup of coffee and read the newspaper in the morning.

“Popped in for ice cream ”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

A little disappointed with the ice cream we ordered here as it didn't taste as food as it looked

Normally one of my favourite places to visit when in Malta and didn't enjoy the ice cream on this occasion

“Great little cafe”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We enjoyed a delicious coffee on the cafe terrace most mornings during our five day stay in St.Julians. Delicious pastries also and the place just has a nice feel about it. Definately the best coffee in the area.

“Great little cafe”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Nice cafe, always look forward to the wide range of cakes, ice cream and milkshakes more then anything. Just a few steps away from the Hilton Hotel it is great to visit for lunch, a coffee or just a cake. Food is fresh and hot. TV's show various news and sports channels. Service is good with attentive staff never let you go un-noticed. Would reccomend. Drinks and food are expencive compared to other local cafes.

“Cafe very close to Hilton”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We had breakfast here a good few times. Hilton breakfast 20 Euro's even when you only wanted Toast and tea. Free Internet. Friendly staff.
