I came there because the café is close to my hotel. I ordered a croissant with a coffee which were good. I would love order a cake, muffin, sandwich with feta cheese or salami .. a real breakfast ! It's not a good option for a breakfast. The place is well located.

Thought we would try this place for breakfast, rather than pay the extortionate cost for breakfast at our hotel. Service average, food about the same. Not much more to say. It was just a light breakfast.

A luxurious coffee shop where it is pleasant to spent some time. Warm dishes are limted (sandwiches or quiches), but is has a very pleasant international atmosphere. So go for drinks or a small bite. You might run into people you know who are also there for a coffee or an glass of wine!

As other of our reports will testify, there are wonderful places in which to eat in St Julian’s – but sometimes you just want ordinary but fairly hearty and good food. Caffe Portomaso fits this bill. We thought we’d share a chicken, gammon and chutney ftira as a starter – partly because we love the crusty Maltese bread. The crunchy... More

This café is right next to both the Hilton hotel and the posh Portamaso Marina. The building itself is open and stylish with an outside terrace. Despite the location drinks and snacks are really good value.

When we visited Malta 10 years ago we went to Caffe Portomaso for a lunchtime meal and have to say it was excellent. My partner also loved to go there for a coffee especially as they have a tv inside sometimes showing sport - although unobtrusive. So last week as we were staying at the Hilton which is almost next... More

Caffe` Portomaso is the oldest outlet of the Marina Restaurants fleet and has been operating successfully since 2003. It is situated below the Portomaso Business Tower (adjacent to the Hilton Hotel) and is a great place for shoppers, sightseers and the business community for a quick drink or a bite to eat. Caffe` Portomaso, like all the other outlets, has both inside and outside seating. The outside terrace is set up with outdoor wicker furniture where canopies are opened in order to shelter guests from the strong rays of the sun in the summer months and the rain in the winter months. Caffe` Portomaso has got an inside seating capacity of approximately eighty covers and an outside seating capacity of forty covers. The inside is designed to give a warm and 'homey' feeling, where many choose to make the coffee shop their spot to have a cup of coffee and read the newspaper in the morning.
