Breakfast- omelet or belizian breakfast, excellent; lunch- ceviche, or conch fritters, excellent- dinner- snapper, ka-bobs, or rib-eye( melt in your mouth) all excellent. Service by nicest people and talk to chef for info on how to cook when we go home. Doesn't get any better.

We waited while everyone around us was served. No water, menus, bread or drinks. Finally we asked a passing waiter to help us. When he brought our orders, one of the meals belonged to another table. By the time the correct meal was delivered, the other diner was done with their dinner. Definitely not worth the price.

We had a great dinner and an excellent breakfast at Portofino's. Both times we had outstanding service. My husband had the curried zucchini soup and while it had a strong curry flavor, it was very good. We had pasta dishes and were very happy. Breakfast was GREAT.

We came to have lunch at the portfino resturant and take advantage of the scenic views of the ocean. Atmosphere was very nice. Unfortunately, the service was poor. The waiter informed us that the bartender had not come to work and the resturant was unable to get into the locked liquor cabinet...later we found out that this cabinet includes alcohol, bottled water, sodas- everything but tap water. Waiter did not seem apologetic. although we were thirsty we didnt want to try the tap water. As we paid the bill, another couple came up with two drinks in their hands stating they got the drinks from the bartender downstairs. The waiter finally chimed in and said the bartender finally showed up. Really would have been nice if the waiter offered us drinks when the bartender finally came. Also would have been nice if he offered us drinks when the other couple let us know the bartender had arrived - nothing! Perhaps because he had already gotten his tip? It would have been nice if management could have apologized for the lack of drinks available.

Food was average to good but nothing special. Conch fritters were subpar compared to other places we had tried them. Atmosphere was very nice. Views were very nice.
