visited for Mothers Day but disappointed as food very average and overpriced. Steak had to be sent back as overcooked, the salted cod balls were so salty they were very unpleasant. The hummus was very watery difficult to dip.

I went to Port on New Years Eve and found out later, that you also created a menu for Vegans. Since, I have a few Vegan friends, I thought I ask here on TripAdvisor. Do you always have a Vegan option on the menu/on Special Menus?
