Absolutely beautiful location and superb service! There is a wonderful infinity pool overlooking the bay from a high position in the hotel grounds. Good champagne and wine selection too so nothing to disappoint!

This "famous" restaurant and bar ls part of the Belmond Splendid Hotel. The hotel is up on a hill overlooking the harbour of Portofino and this place is on the water...We were there in October so it is the end of their season and it was not overly crowded but the restaurant is excellently locate in the heart of all...

Unlike most of the waterfront restaurants this was reasonably priced and we could still enjoy the wonderful setting

What a great spot Chuflay is! On the square overlooking the harbor, the maitre d' warmly greats guests under the outside patio awning. Sitting outside, with the inside windows open and piano player softly playing old tunes, Chuflay does not fail to impress! Wife and I stayed up top at the Splendido, and took the shuttle down two nights in... More

Right in the center of Portofino this is a luxury hotel and part of the Hotel Splendido. You pay for service and food quality but don't expect anything inventive or outstanding. Just well done food in a little corner of paradise.

If you are looking for overpriced, overrated food with pretentious service---this is your place. Splendido is clearly not in touch w reality. We experienced better food and better service for less than HALF the price at Gemelli.

If you plan to have lunch in Portofino, this is the place to go. The marina is peppered with tourist traps. This restaurant is high quality, luxurious and peaceful. It's a delightful respite from the hoards of tourists in the plaza. It's pricey but worth it. The view of the marina is one of the best since the restaurant is... More

We spent 3 days in Portofino and loved it. The scenery, dining and shopping, (yes shopping) were magnificent. On our last night we decided to have dinner in the village. We chose Chuflay at Splendido Mare since we were staying at their sister hotel. The village was quiet, but even in the dark the town was still beautiful. We got... More
