Portal is one of those venues I've heard about but never had the chance to visit – being quite territorial it's not too often I get a chance to eat in the city however I'm glad I did with Portal. The main dining room is set in a beautiful conservatory giving plenty of natural light and is very relaxing. The menu is excellent and covers a great range of dishes – Including vegetarian and vegan and gluten free so something for everyone really. Starter of veal carpaccio with truffle oil, goat cheese ice cream sprinkled with purple shiso leaves was awesome and the following main of Confit suckling pig with sauté curly kale and ham, green apple mash and pepper sauce tender and very very tasty, always one to try a cheese board instead of the sweet option I was not disappointed with the selection and tastes. Service was smooth and slick and the vibe very relaxed – without table turns it's very easy to go here early evening and spend all night relaxing and enjoying fine food – how a dinner should be. Definitely one of my recent highlights.
