We have used this Cafe Bar many times over the last few years. Whether for a snack, afternoon coffee and cake ( a great selection!) or evening drinks, never been disappointed.

We had snacks and drinks in this restaurant during our trip. The service was poor. We tried to get menus many times from the waiters. Then we tried to make the order which took a long time.

We have been coming here for about six years, on and off. The service is sometimes slow, but the food is good, it has a laid back feel and if we keep repeating it, something must be right.

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.
