“Excellent place for meats, beers and ... gin”
Review of The Portobello

The Portobello
Ranked #47 of 178 Restaurants in Klaipeda
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 23, 2018

This is a two storey restaurant in the middle of old Klaipeda with a spacious outdoor lawn in late spring - early autumn. It is a place to go for meets in Lithuania's main port. Visvaldas, the chef, personally selects suppliers, and buys most of his meat from farmers. The menu is not huge and focuses on pork, chicken and beef. Specially marinated spare ribs are Visvaldas' speciality and only to taste them is reason enough to go to Portobello. He prepares dishes in full view of the clients during summer months on an outdoor grill. The restaurant offers an international selection of beers plus, since not long ago, an extensive menu of gin-based cocktails with a dozen different sorts of gin. One has to order drinks at the counter but waiters will serve you anyway. Service is polite and non-fussy. Overall a great place to go for a square meal.

Not sure why they gave us the menu as they did not have half of the items while ordering. No grill dishes, no coffee, no tea. Why to have them on the menu then? We were offered the options of junk food, though, and a selection of alcohol drinks.

This is a sister pub to the one with the same name in Vilnius. Lots of meat and beer on tap. Tender spare ribs marinated in a special marinade by Visvaldas, the restaurant chef are possibly the best in Lithuania. Simple chicken dishes will keep the children happy. The place is pleasantly located by the canal and has both indoor and outdoor sitting. It is not noisy around although historical city centre is just minutes away. Sincerely recommended.
