    This is a very nice place. Have always had good food and service here and it's good value as well. Liked the new menu. It's a good place for groups to meet.

    The service was perfect, the food was Devine. First time I had been there and I will absolutely go back again. The timing of everything was down pat I could not fault in any way.

    My wife and I have been coming to Portabella's for some years now and delight that we have an excellent standard restaurant in our area and not need to visit Brisbane. We have introduced many of our friends to the restaurant and now, they too have joined the VIP club facility that is offered. A wide ranging menu, beautifully presented and always delicious. Value for money is excellent as well. I have no hesitation in recommending diners to visit with Portabella! Geoff Foley

    This is a great little Suburban restaurant that we visit regularly because of the excellent food service and setting. The room is spacious and quite and the prices are reasonable

    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’.
