We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our meal at Il Porto. The staff were courteous and attentive when necessary and the decor and ambience were really pleasing. We were attracted by the 17.90€ three course set menu- lots of variety and each course absolutely delicious. We ordered the tuna tataki and mozzarella with figs to start (mozzarella and fig salad looked amazing and was particularly delicious!). Then grilled entrecôte and chicken in white wine for mains- the entrecôte portion was on the small side and would have benefitted from a side salad or veg as well as the chips and sauce it came with. The chicken in white wine was delicious, and a good sized portion. Finally, peach mousse and caramelised pear for dessert- both home made and very tasty.
A great value meal with some really delicious dishes. Il Porto exceeded our expectations and we will be back!

Visited Il Porto twice during our week's visit to Mahon. The first time we had to sit inside as the terrace was fully booked, but the second time things were quieter and we had a table on the terrace. Both times we ate from the menu del diablo which offered good value for money at 18 euros. Highlights include the mussels, gazpacho, pork Rossini and entrecotte steak. Staff were just attentive enough and the gin granita to finish was delightful. Highly recommended.

Reasonable choices were set out on the menu, but the realisation didn't fit the anticipation. When my main course arrived I sort of half expected that a dish of vegetables would follow, as the amount of food on the plate covered only about a third of it. Service didn't appear to be particularly warm & friendly - one would almost go as far as to say it was 'distant'.

After seeking shelter for 45 minutes under a bar canopy from a huge rain shower, we wandered on towards Mahon's harbour & the friendly persuasive staff here made a fine experience for both myself & daughter. Stylish surroundings, good food & views of the super- yachts!

Another lovely evening spent at Il Porto. This is a very popular restaurant just across the road from the magnificent boats that line the port of Mahon. For a table on the terrace it is essential to book in high season as we watched many disappointed people being turned away albeit some eventually returned to eat inside as the food is good and there is a very buzzy atmosphere inside as well. A set menu is available at 17.80 Euros which represents very good value with a pleasing choice. 20 cl beer 2.00 Euros, White wine, 3.10, Red 2.80. Good value, good service, good food, good view, we will return!
