Exquisite decor, extraordinary cuisine and courteous service. One of the best restaurants in The Valley if not the best. If you are looking for an special culinary experience Portalet is the perfect place. Congratulations!

Tasty and inspired dishes, with equally inspired between-course nibbles. Interesting and unusual decor which creates a very welcoming environment. Friendly, cheerful and well dressed staff. Good value, and a cut above the lines of eateries on the other side of the river.

From the decor to the food and staff this place is amazing. A lovely setting and made to feel really welcome. The food was to die for and the wine was very reasonably priced for the quality. We will be back 😊

Our restaurant is located in an old "Borda Aranesa" restored, although it is within the population enjoys a superb location next to nature, with its own car park. The atmosphere is very friendly and spacious. The cuisine is creative style, our chef continues to innovate and to work, after more than fifteen years, the unmistakable style of Portalet. We have available all year.
