Quiet two level restaurant overlooking the entrance to St. John's harbour. Menu is not extensive, but good variety. Service was excellent, meal arrived promptly, and hot.

We originally decided to try this restaurant because it was next door to our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised right away by the friendly staff and the welcoming atmosphere.
Our server, Owen, was outstanding. He was attentive and obviously enjoyed interacting with the guests.
The food was beautifully prepared and presented. The menu selections were varied and the halibut special was prepared perfectly.
Prices were medium to high.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Went for a late evening dinner. Dining room much more attractive than exterior would suggest. Great view of the harbour and narrows. Seafood fettuccini well presented and ample portion. Salmon Wellington also very tasty. Friendly service.

Though I did not love the food, I did like the view and service at this Italian restaurant and because of that would recommend this restaurant. Unfortunately, St. John's restaurants aren't great (however I never ate at Raymond's), so if you like to dine in a nice open restaurant with a view Portobello will fit the bill. The portions are large.

We met good friends we had met on a business trip in Bali. They made reservation at Portobello's, steps from our hotel. The view of the harbour was great as we saw the cruise ship leave the port. l had the seafood chowder (amazing) and the lamb (really tasty). Great friendly service.
