We had dinner on Tuesday 7 March at Portabella. Our wonderful experience started with the guy at front of house (wish I had gotten his name). He was very welcoming and attentive which was a great start to the night. We didn't have to wait long to be served. The wait staff were very polite and prompt. The food was... More

First time to Portabella & the food was absolutely delicious. My hubby had the battered reef fish which he said was lovely. One friend had the steak which was great too. And me & my friend shared 3 small plates - stuffed mushrooms, risotto croquettes & bruschetta. So delicious & just enough. Service was great & wine was good. Will... More

We actually were dining at another restaurant nearby but my daughters could not eat food cooked with peanut oil. We walked to Portabellas and they gave us takeaway of two beautiful meals - dnochi and a sorlion steak. They fitted it in immediately, they cooked the food to perfection, they even delivered it to us at the other restaurant and... More

I go to this restaurant at least once a week because they have friendly and professional staff and their food is of a consistently high standard and always fresh with simple but good presentation. Well done Portabella

I love that we have such a lovely restaurant in our suburb - the menu offers tasty selections - my favourites are the entrée Mooloolaba prawns which are in tempura batter over a crunchy slaw with an Asian style dressing followed by a nice fish dish which varies - they also have steaks, chicken, pasta and a full cocktail bar...

We have visited this restaurant several times and it continues to deliver in terms of quality and service. The menu is extensive and the service very good. The food is delicious. The ambience is also very good, and there is also a wine bar within the restaurant.

Went to this restaurant last night for a birthday dinner. To be honest I wasn't expecting much- an establishment in the outer north or Brisbane. I was pleasantly surprised. Craft beer on tap, extensive drinks menu, good menu and most importantly the meals were excellent. Great service as well. I would not hesitate to return

Keep going back to this restaurant for any occasion. The menu has a good variety without having too may selections and the wine list has something to cater for everyone. The wait staff are very pleasant and don't overdo the welcomes and are always there when you need them. We had mains and desert. The mains were cooked to perfection... More

We have only eaten here once, but weren't overly impressed. The service was ok (staff were a bit inattentive) and the food was ok (it wasn't bad - just not really good). Sadly for me when paying so much for a meal I expect not only great food and great service .
