Delicious seafood. Scallops were plump and octupus so tender... It was a low key, enjoyable meal in the main restaurant. We would definitely go back to the tapas bar bit to try.

Just returned to Portal having been away for sometime ,what an absolute treat this must be Londons hidden gem ,the food was fantastic ,the wine top draw and the staff very attentive and friendly ,a special mention to the cocktail barman Stephain what superb cocktails ,the bloody mary was the best I have ever tasted ,I wil be returning very soon .

Do yourself a favour and try somewhere else, its not like the area doesn't have plenty more to offer. Even with a £60 discount, I couldn't recommend this to anyone. Staff were slow and uninterested, food was distinctly average with a curious raspberry fetish, the only redeeming quality was the wine -shame only half of it arrived, not great for a wine pairing. Sauces were either overpowering or non-existent. Go with St John or Vinoteca instead.
