With football’s ‘special one’ back in town, Portal’s profile will be given a boost by the return of its most famous customer, a certain José Mourinho. The Chelsea manager isn’t the only one to rate
this smart Portuguese restaurant and bar: its well-executed cooking, ‘attentive service’ and breathtaking conservatory still receive warm praise from all quarters. Portal’s classic flavours strike
the balance between contemporary and comforting themes. Cornish sardine escabèche and grilled peppers heaped onto toasted bread is generous and straightforward, while the must-try bacalhau (salt
cod) with turnip tops, cornbread and black-eyed beans is fussily presented with powder, micro-cress and an architectural garnish – although it’s cooked from the heart. For dessert, custard tart
with a drop of tawny port is heaven. The eye-opening wine list brings modern vintages and fortified tipples from the country’s best producers.
For a really special occasion, Portal is the place to go! Exquisite food, excellent service and a wonderful atmosphere is what this restaurant is all about!On entering Portal, there is the bar area. The restaurant area is slightly separated from the bar and it extends right through into the conservatory! As we were early, we started off with drinks at the bar. The bar staff were really knowledgeable about the drinks and made us feel comfortable straight away!...
