“Lovely dinner, nice service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

We had a great dinner here - of particular note was the rack of lamb. The service was quick and polite. We were asked several times if our meals were OK - no sign of slow service observed by some other reviewers.

“Very pleasant modern restaurant with large portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

Although it was not very busy for a Saturday night, this restaurant had a nice atmosphere and looked good with its modern glass frontage looking out onto the harbor. Inside was just as good. Service was not the sharpest but was friendly and warm. The range of food and drink is good but the quality doesn’t suffer for it. Portions are really large – probably best not to be tempted by the starters unless you really have space.

A little expensive but it is more or less worth it. Portland may not have a lot of options, but even in a bigger city Edward’s would be worth a look.

“Great restaurant in Portland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

We were lucky enough to visit Portland recently while touring Victoria in a campervan. We arrived on a very wet afternoon and found this wonderful restaurant. At 2.30 in the afternoon we weren't sure whether we would be welcomed for lunch or not but didn't have to worry. We were given a table by the window overlooking the harbour (through the rain) and enjoyed a light lunch and glass of wine. The service wasn't as professional as the surroundings could expect but the food was great, the service was friendly and the prices very reasonable.

“Great food and nice ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Recommended by the B&B where we stayed in Portland, he was spot on about the quality and value.

We had two mains - baked ling and pork belly - with some veg sides. The desserts looked delectable but size of the mains left us no room to enjoy!

The restaurant has a nice ambience, lighting and background music, with lovely harbour views.The staff were attentive but unobtrusive.

We'll priced considering the quality and good service.

Arrived after 8.30 on a Friday night and the staff were happy to cook us dinner. Their service was exceptional and the food was lovely. Will definitely return next time I am in the area!
