We were passing through Portobello and stopped at the hotel for an early dinner. I didn't expect they would be sending at 5:15 pm but they were. The seafood chowder was excellent; my wife had venison burger which was good. Friendly service and good food.

Ordered the blue cod and was amazed at the presentation of the meal! The two pieces of blue cod were piping hot and batter was nice and crispy, the salad was delicious and the fries were also nice and hot and well presented in a mini deep-fryer basket which was awesome. Service was great also, I would definitely recommend people go here for a nice lunch.

We dined at the Portobello Hotel twice during our stay - once inside and the second time outside. Both experiences were pleasant with great service and delicious meals which were plated up with flair and were enjoyed with an evening view of Portobello Bay in the background.
The beer bottle Christmas tree in the public bar made us smile too!

This is probably the best eating option in Portobello. Reasonable service and good well presented food. $74 for Pork Belly and Salmon mains with two pints of beer.

The food here (at the bistro) was amazing, best we've eaten in a long time! Great atmosphere and excellent service! Much nicer than it looks from the outside!
Definitely worth visiting for dinner and highly recommend the rib-eye steak!
Conveniently located across the road from the Portobello Store!
