Porta was a great place for brunch and overall the experience we had here was good. We would come back to this cafe again soon.
Great place and good food! Had an enjoyable time dining there!
nice ambience, staff is very attentive and friendly. location is easy to find as it is at park hotel. Food is well presented and nice
you can get something like this at Fat Boys without paying as much. Simply get the melt-in-your mouth pork chop for $26. Simply awesome. Took the nice sofa seats too which is a plus.
The service was fair although the waitresses seemed a bit preoccupied regardless of the restaurant being nearly empty. The red wine was served cold. The steak was alright. Octopus and burger were delicious and would recommend them highly.
Food quality and value were excellent. The ambiance of the restaurant was also pleasant. Service from the staff was middling even though the restaurant was not even half full.
Nice food but it was nearly empty on a sat for brunch. Shame. Food is worth a visit. Nice different take on eggs benedict. Worth a try.
Portions for food could've been greater. The dessert (vhalrona chocolate) was really nice and worth it! Waiters were attentive. Song list and ambience can be improved.
