    Portabella is my “go to” restaurant for sure. I have dined there at least 20 times and have always been impressed. I mostly go lunchtime with friends. Well priced and excellent food and service.

    I’m just home after enjoying a delightful lunch at Portabella, with four friends. Then food was very tasty and the servings were perfect for lunch. The waitstaff were attentive and efficient. Wonderful value for money. I’ll be back again.

    Food was bland, also felt like it was quantity over quality... the food was the most disappointing part of our first visit to the restaurant tbh....albeit restaurant was quiet the food was served very quickly which we felt was why it lacked the taste. I had duck with passion four and orange glaze and tbh could not taste any of these substances, scallops were overcooked and lacked flavour ie not fresh. Waitresses were pleasant but barely asked how our food was apart from one. Also another waitress ignored us when we nodded for more service. Sadly we won’t be back.

    I always go to Portabella for special occasions or just for a treat. Service is great and the food never disappoints. A range of options even for special dietary needs. A great local restaurant.

    I had lunch at this popular restaurant with a group of friends. Three of us had the Portabella platter which includes chicken kebabs, lamb kofta, salad and pita bread. The meat was fast and we all enjoyed it. The amount was too much so I took some home. My other friends all enjoyed their meals. My only disappointment was the mango dessert which was nice but only included a few pieces of mango. The service was pretty good overall, considering how busy the place was.

    Meals were delicious. Presentation was excellent. Portion sizes were perfect. Restaurant was busy being Christmas, but staff were very attentive and we didn't have to wait for our meals. We had the Standard Lunch menu and were very happy with the choice and the price.

    We felt extremely hot in the restaurant. There was no one in the back area, so would have been nice to have closed the sliding doors into that area so the restaurant was cooler. The restaurant was busy but staff were very attentive. Premium lunch menu is really good value for money. Nice portion sizes and a really nice selection of meals.

    Good food. Good service. Food well cooked. No delay after ordering. But menu on The Fork was not up to date. Only minor issue. Quiet location as requested.

    The food was fantastic and wait staff were very attentive. On the night we dined there were 2 things from the drinks menu that were unavailable which was disappointing but we were offered similar alternatives. Portabella platter is a ‘must try’.

    Portabella is a family favourite. Really enjoy their food and they are usually very attentive and allow just enough time for us to catch up with each other and solve the world's problems between courses. It is a proper restaurant even though it's in the suburbs.

    Portabella is a neighbour gem, servicing the areas of Albany Creek, Aspley and Bridgeman Downs. Their weekday lunches are an absolute bargain; $25 for a 2 course meal or $35 for a 2 course Premium Meal. Service is excellent!

    The food here is always expertly cooked, perfectly flavoured, and thoroughly delicious. My family and I would eat there every night if we could afford it! Even my fussy young children love it.

    Food is a little pricy but amazing so I’m not complaining. Service was spot on by the front/back house staff, this was aided by only having another 12 tables being served on unusually quite Friday night. Will always come back with an awesome experience every time.

    Really enjoyed the night food was excellent and service very friendly. For a suburban restaurant it could be considered expensive which it is however the quality is as good as many City restaurants. Will go back and reserve for special occassions.
