We went here for lunch with friends and had an ocean view table which was lovely. The service was fast and staff were very friendly however my $40 T Bone steak looked like it had been boiled then thrown on the grill for a couple of seconds and it had no flavour at all. The accompanying potatoes were tasteless also....

We visited the Portsea Hotel a few times over the Summer holidays and found it to be grotty. Dirty plates and glasses not collected from tables and staff not very interested in collecting and cleaning tables. We have visited the Portsea Pub for many years and were disappointed this year!

Good food, decent value but disappointing atmosphere and service. Long wait to order and stand in line. Nice to sit outside on the deck but if you're inside, don't bother. It is loud and just unpleasant.

My first visit was disappointing apart from the food. Having booked and requested and guaranteed an outdoor table with a weeks notice, I was disappointed to not be seated outside. The indoor atmosphere is honestly unpleasant and noisy. We waited 20 minutes in line to order the food, yet it did come quickly after that. The food was great and...

While holidaying in Sorrento over the Christmas break, friends and I headed up to Portsea for lunch. You can't beat the location on a nice sunny day, over looking the water, however I can't believe the disappointing food. This is nothing more than small country town pub grub with a city price. We didn't have high expectations as we ordered...

A accidentally found myself needing accommodation at the Portsea pub (for me and my two very tired sons) when we discovered that we'd missed the last ferry back to queenscliff! Thankfully we were quickly introduced to the Kiwi hotel manager who treated us like 5 star patrons. He couldn't do enough for us from the moment we explained our predicament....

Went here for a drink with friends and it's a great spot to hang for an afternoon. It was very busy and attracts a lot of families but it definitely a spot to visit whilst in Portsea. Shaded outside and indoor tables available.

I have been coming here for many years but after living outside Australia for last 7 decided to come back here with friends. Was not disappointed. Excellent pub food, good bar with range of local beers and wines.

How awful to see an icon like this establishment fail so badly. Visited today for lunch. Serving a simple Parma and chips(a simple salad extra ) just plonked on the table like you were at wharfies BBQ. But worse was to come when I realised this massive piece of supposed to be chicken was just a slab of processed rubber....
