Chose this restaurant on a very stormy evening because of its proximity to meeting point. Probably the most tasteless pizza I have ever had. Friendly English speaking waiter. Froze with wind whistling through the ill fitting gaps in sliding glass windows...lovely view but with noise of the wind felt like a scene from a Daphne du Maurier! Always suspicious too... More

Nice small Italian restaurant with traditional Italian dishes. Real value for money - and the sea views alone makes it worth a visit. Especially in the evening!

This place looked good from the Balcon, and the views were good; a great spot for a drink perhaps, however, not impressed with the dinner service which was somewhat indifferent, the food was ok but not thrilling. It is a cash only establishment.

We had arrived late afternoon in Nerja and popped into town for a meal. Portofino is adjacent to Balcon de Europa and has great views of the sea. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful waiter who advised s about the menu and best place to sit. The food, mainly Italian, is unite good and very reasonably priced.... More

Goat cheese salad here is delicious, has dried apples and walnuts in there and a honey dressing. Goat cheese itself is good quality. the pasta for the children was lovely. It could do with credit card facilities, and it is a little bit expensive even for the area.
