As other of our reports will testify, there are wonderful places in which to eat in St Julian’s – but sometimes you just want ordinary but fairly hearty and good food. Caffe Portomaso fits this bill. We thought we’d share a chicken, gammon and chutney ftira as a starter – partly because we love the crusty Maltese bread. The crunchy... More

This café is right next to both the Hilton hotel and the posh Portamaso Marina. The building itself is open and stylish with an outside terrace. Despite the location drinks and snacks are really good value.

When we visited Malta 10 years ago we went to Caffe Portomaso for a lunchtime meal and have to say it was excellent. My partner also loved to go there for a coffee especially as they have a tv inside sometimes showing sport - although unobtrusive. So last week as we were staying at the Hilton which is almost next... More

this is a really classy but inexpensive café bar. There is a self serve area serving hot and cold meals - drinks in a lovely atmosphere on the edge of the marina area. staff were very nice, attentive and the prices are very reasonable a great place to try on your way to the marina

Never go here! Awful food. Rude service and a chef who has no talent. Asked for eggs at 12.05 only to be told their policy is. It to serve eggs after noon. The menu had eggs on the menu with no reference to this. When I asked the chef politely he was rude and aggressive. Sums up all that is... More

Almost next door to the Hilton Malta, this is a great place for a lunchtime snack. Lots of good food including pizzas, toasted sandwiches. The avocado and prawn salad was good. Nice hot tea and coffee and a range of cakes. If you are in St julians or the hotel and want some peace and quiet, this is ideal.

This is one of the best places in Malta to have some ice cream. I've stopped by the Caffe on previous visits to Malta and always enjoyed stopping by to have a ice cream sometimes after my dinner. This is also a friendly place for children.

We had very tasty pizzas here - thin and crisp with good toppings. Service was speedy and friendly and the surroundings were clean and pleasant. Overall a good experience.

Description
Caffe` Portomaso is the oldest outlet of the Marina Restaurants fleet and has been operating successfully since 2003. It is situated below the Portomaso Business Tower (adjacent to the Hilton Hotel) and is a great place for shoppers, sightseers and the business community for a quick drink or a bite to eat. Caffe` Portomaso, like all the other outlets, has both inside and outside seating. The outside terrace is set up with outdoor wicker furniture where canopies are opened in order to shelter guests from the strong rays of the sun in the summer months and the rain in the winter months. Caffe` Portomaso has got an inside seating capacity of approximately eighty covers and an outside seating capacity of forty covers. The inside is designed to give a warm and 'homey' feeling, where many choose to make the coffee shop their spot to have a cup of coffee and read the newspaper in the morning.
